She'd have no living father or brother to force her to marry, so maybe Charles Brandon?Mary Tudor who married here? She would be a good option for Christian II of Denmark freeing Isabella for John III of Portugal. I guess John III of Spain will marry Isabella of Portugal...
I'm considering now to let Juan de Asturias to live longer and to have more kids (including future wife of João III of Portugal).Well Philip and Elizabeth will choose her match if neither Henry had already chosen someone for her AND Denmark would be a good solution.
Good but still, unless she is already married off/engaged by her father/brother Philip will have also Mary Tudor available when Christian will ask for a bride AND is likely to get her (who is the best option available for age)I'm considering now to let Juan de Asturias to live longer and to have more kids (including future wife of João III of Portugal).
No, no pretty likely to happen for persuading the English to two Habsburg matches...Probably should have clarified that ATL the marriage contract specified that should Mary and Philip not have children, the Netherlands would go to Margaret's children. Possibly ASB tbh
Just two things about your tree:(I wanted to do a chaotic family tree. This took me forever, when I should have been doing work, but oh well.)
BACKGROUND/DIVERGENCES FROM HISTORY:
- Instead of the Duke of Gloucester (Richard III) usurping the throne, Edward V was officially crowned at Westminster Abbey after a public reconciliation between Elizabeth Woodville and Richard, Duke of Gloucester. Despite this, King Edward V and Gloucester's relations are tense due to Gloucester and the Woodvilles regular (but not public) hostilities over matters of power. Edward V gains full control of his government in 1486.
- George Plantagenet, Duke of Bedford, never caught the bubonic plague.

continues through the descendants of William III and Isabel of England
(1) marriage organised in an attempt to appease the Howard family due to them being stripped of the Norfolk inheritance, along with them being given generous lands in the south of England. Katherine Howard is the only child from the second marriage of John, Lord Howard, and would have been born some time after 1467.
(2) not made Countess of Pembroke due to Edward V's regard for inheritance laws, which his father lacked. Lived longer as I assume she died in childbirth and in this the births are different
Thank you for pointing that out! I've amended itJust two things about your tree:
1) Edward IV (and V) would made George of Bedford as Earl of Pembroke not Elizabeth as Countess in her own right (in OTL Pembroke was extinct at this point) AND giving the Norfolk inheritance to Richard (or the Essex to Anne St. Ledger after that lands were given to her mother, after being stripped from her first husband) would NOT be neither the only or the first time in which a wedding contract established who a surviving spouse was entitled to the inheritance of the other in absence of children.
2) the names for Maximilian and Elizabeth’s children are a little off: Duarte is Portuguese (and Carlos is a Spanish form), the German form would be Eduard, and Max would likely use the name of his paternal grandfather (Ernest) before that of his father (Frederick) and likely would not use Charles.
To whom is Louis II of Hungary married ITTL?York wank scenario thanks Habsburg style luck descendants of Edward IV gets Burgundy and Spain. Richard of Gloucester could not simply declare Edward V illegitimate (as there are still sons of E4 and Mary of Burgundy between Gloucester and the throne anyway). Almost complete.
Assuming he is even born? Marriage of his parents was arranged by Louis XII and Anne of Brittany as part of planned Valois-Jagiellon alliance against Habsburgs, Hansburgs not having Burgundian inheritance means significant geopolitical change.To whom is Louis II of Hungary married ITTL?
Good point, I forgot who arranged that marriage. But Vladislaus would still need a heir, so he should marry a woman and consummate this marriage. Habsburgs not having Burgundian inheritance means, that they'd have a lot less pressure on Jagiellons.Assuming he is even born?
