Possibly Sigismund could ceede Electorate of Brandenburg to his son upon taking Bohemia, eventually it may go to younger son later.Can we explore this some more @Jan Olbracht ?
I do like the idea of Casimir of Slupsk becoming King of Poland as a result of that POD, but I'm not sure about Sigismund here. Why would he hold both electorates in this timeline instead of parting with one as per OTL, and would the other electors tolerate one ruler holding both Bohemia and Brandenburg?
Also, does TTL Ladislaus V manage to sire children with Margaret?
It sounds stupid, but perhaps instead of a cousin match to Maria of Aragon, Pedro V could marry Blanche of Lancaster (daughter of Henry IV)? There were originally negotiations going on that would've married her to first Martin I of Sicily's son (Pedro/Pietro) and then to the widowered Martin himself. There was also talk of a marriage of Blanche's OTL husband to an Aragonese/Sicilian princess (not sure who that was though).Martin I of Aragon has one more surviving son.

Good idea, good to have some fresh blood added to Iberian royal house.It sounds stupid, but perhaps instead of a cousin match to Maria of Aragon, Pedro V could marry Blanche of Lancaster (daughter of Henry IV)? There were originally negotiations going on that would've married her to first Martin I of Sicily's son (Pedro/Pietro) and then to the widowered Martin himself. There was also talk of a marriage of Blanche's OTL husband to an Aragonese/Sicilian princess (not sure who that was though).
Names of the kids looks well...weird. Habsburg daughters - and particularly Habsburg daughters with a Spanish mom - by that point had the first name "Maria". But it's only the last daughter (who unless that birth year is a typo, and it's supposed to be 1757, is born when Mariana is 57yo) who is named after her grandmother. The OTL names of Maria Theresia's first daughters would probably stick (Maria Elisabeth, Maria Karoline, Maria Christine, Maria Anna) named as they were after her mom (Christine), dad (Karoline), sister (Maria Anna), and mom-in-law (Elisabeth/Isabel).Alrighty, just sketching out Habsburg TL here:
*Son of Louis XV
- Leopold II (1716-1783) m. Mariana Victoria of Spain (1718-1781)
- Friedrich IV (1738-1808) m. Maria Josepha of Bavaria (1739-1804)
- (I couldn't resist) Karl Franz I (1757-1826)
- Elisabeth Christine (1762-1832)
- Maria Claudia Johanna (1738-1800) m. Louis XVI* (1729-1789)
- Here be Bourbons (too lazy to write them in)
- Gabriela Augusta (1743-1745)
- Heinrich Maximilian (1746-1819)
- Ferdinand Wilhelm (1754-1821) m. Maria Amalia of Saxony (1757-1831)
- Antonia Carolina (1774-1838)
- Anna Isabella (1775-1836) m. John VI (1767-1826)
The main POD here is Charles VI's eldest child, Leopold Johann, surviving his infancy and becoming Holy Roman Emperor. Another one I threw in was OTL Louis XVI's father surviving his brush with smallpox. This is still a major work in progress, so feel free to critique as you wish.
