*** She is Philip's fourth wife, their son inherits Spanish Netherlands

ITTL Bona has 20 grandchildren instead of 4 like IOTL. ITTL Catholic royal houses, especially Habsburgs, should be way less inbred (Archdukes Ferdinand and Charles would not marry their nieces, and there is Catholic Welf line in Brunswick).

A work in progress list because I don't the energy to write or research the entire tree, but basically Stewart wank.

1. Disputed. Before she was sent to France, her uncle managed to piss the Scottish Lords off by fleeing to England in hopes of getting King Henry's help for the English throne. But by the time she came back from France, her cousin had managed to win several of her enemies over.
2. Although when he was born, he was called the Duke of Rothesay and heir to the Scottish throne, his mother cousin managed to oust her and send her to England where she would later be executed for treason. Despite this, James got along with his royal cousins and there were even rumors that he was in love with one of them. He would never marry and ended up leaving the Earldom of Lennox to the crown,.
3. Alexander of Scotland had never met his father and instead had a close relationship with his mother, even fleeing with her and his half-sister to England where he became familiar with the English court. Although he eventually would return to Scotland, he and his brother would never see eye to eye on anything. This came to a head when King James V named his infant daughter Queen over her uncle. Despite never actually ruling Scotland, Alexander would be refereed as fourth King of Scots by his supports.
4. King James had lost his mother at eight years old and then just under three years later, he was forced to flee Scotland to live in England while his father plotted to take the Scottish throne for himself. Although King Henry had suggested that his daughter Elizabeth for his sister's grandson's bride, Alexander wanted to make an alliance with Denmark and sucesfully convinced King Christian to wed his oldest daughter Anna to James. The young couple were very much in love and would go on to have fifteen children although only seven would survive to adulthood. Despite being jilted Lady and later Queen Elizabeth would remain on friendly terms with King James even going as far as to name him as her heir. His sister, Margaret was offered to King Edward. However the King would die before the marriage could happen.

So I’m assuming that james V managed to convince parliament to repeal Robert ii succession entail due to Alexander pissing off the Scottish lords, and refusing to let him back in?
