1. b) Claude of France (1499-1554) [1] m. Charles V Holy Roman Emperor (1500-1558) with issue.
I am pretty sure the marriage contract between Anne and Louis specified that Claude should inherit Brittany ahead of her first son with Louis if there wasn't a second son available. Though she could always change her mind.

I'm gonna second @curlyhairedhippie, Renee was married to Ercole to keep her away from Brittany. With a brother and a surviving mother she'd get a much better match. James V or Charles V, maybe?

Much better now.

Yes, her strong claim on Brittany is the only reason for which she was not married in Scotland or Navarre in OTL (or offered in England)
 
I am pretty sure the marriage contract between Anne and Louis specified that Claude should inherit Brittany ahead of her first son with Louis if there wasn't a second son available. Though she could always change her mind.
Not sure she'll change her mind so yes Claude should succeed her mother.

That is unlikely to have been the cause of her death. Francis never suffered the madness that came from syphilis. Most likely she died from general bad health and being worn down by near constant pregnancy.

Some matches are pretty unlikely as Eleanor's first engagement ATL will be either in Portugal or Lorraine and will be kept. ATL Henry will marry either Isabella of Austria or Isabella of Portugal (who here will not have Charles V in mind) or Beatrice of Portugal at the worst. Anne de la Tour was married very young to her cousin John of Albany, so Edmund can marry only her younger sister Madeleine (and that will butterfly Catherine de Medici). Mary of England would marry Francis II of France as she would be married at 15/16 and Francis would die a couple of years later (and this only if Pavia happened)

I used Anne de la Tour as a match for Edmund because I've seen her marrying Henry in scenarios where Arthur lives, so I thought she'd be a good choice for Edmund. Mary was originally engaged to Francis but he died before the marriage could happen, so she married Henry.

Anne was married very young (in 1505) and in any case Madeleine is closer in age to Edmund
