List of Alternate Monarchs and Aristocratic Lineage

Personally, I think Charles is still likely to be unpopular and his reign a bit of a mess. Though I imagine that, without a Catholic mother, the next generation of Stuarts will be less inclined to Catholicism. Also, are we sure Anne would be called Princess Royal? IIRC that was a direct importation from France via Henrietta Maria.
Hmm this is true, though could having a Protestant wife, with his kids being firmly in the Anglican camp, perhaps help assuage some of that tension?

And you're right, it was brought in by Henrietta Maria, my bad.

I'd actually be quite interested to see what else could change due to this marriage, with Sophie obviously being a blank slate.

Maybe...but if charles still tries to pull some of his other stuff from OTL (ship money, book of common prayer in scotland, etc.) then I can't see things being too much better.

Hmm tbis is true, and of course there’d no guarantee that he’d listen to Sophie if she told him she thinks he should take a Middle course
 
TL idea — ALT William & Mary: Edmund, Duke of Somerset survives infancy and has issue.

Edmund, Duke of York (21 February 1499—4 December 1523), married Lady Margaret Courtenay (b. 1499, d. 1526) in 1517.

1) Henry, Earl of Pembroke (b. 1517, d. 1518)

2) Arthur, Earl of Pembroke (b. 1519, d. 1519)

3) William III, King of England (b. 1520), married Mary I, Queen of England in 1538.

1) Catherine, Princess of England (b. 1539)​

2) Edmund, Prince of Wales (b. 1541)​

3) Margaret, Princess of England (b. 1543, d. 1544)​

4) William, Duke of York (b. 1546)​

5) Elizabeth, Princess of England (b. 1549)​

6) George, Duke of Somerset (b. 1552, d. 1554)​


NOTES: Edmund dies in 1523, aged 24 and is succeeded by his only surviving son. William loses his mother three years later in 1526 and becames a ward of the Crown. He is betrothed to his cousin and childhood companion Mary from 1525 until 1533, the betrothal is broken after the former princess is declared a bastard.

William, having been Henry's heir presumptive for most of his reign, is eyed with some suspicion by the Boleyns and their allies. He leaves court in early 1534 and retires to his estates.

He is summoned back in 1536, shortly after Anne's execution, once again in the King's favour. Mary herself is reconciled with her father around 1537, and the betrothal is reinstated, the couple marries in 1538.

Charlotte of Wales is born a boy (named Charles ITTL) and marries a surviving Grand Duchess Maria Alexandrovna, older daughter of Tsar Alexander and Elizabeth Alexeievna. This is a preliminary list of their offspring, not including marriages. I'm thinking that either Elizabeth or Charlotte will be Queen of the Netherlands, while George will marry Sophie of Württemburg. Mary or Sophia might wind up with a son of Louis Philippe.


Charles III, King of the United Kingdom of England, Scotland, and Ireland (Charles Augustus; b. 1796, d. 1864) m. Grand Duchess Maria Alexandrovna Romanova (b. 1799, d. 1869) in 1815, had issue

[1] Son of Grand Duke Charles and Stéphanie de Beauharnais, IOTL he did as an infant.
[2] The Princess Royal's search for a husband is rather arduous. She had first hoped to marry the widower King Pedro, but he preferred her younger sister. Other suitors included the future King Umberto of Italy and a number of British lords, but King George and Queen Sophie flatly refused to allow both of their daughters to marry Catholics and Mary refused to marry a British subject. She eventually met the widower Prince Henry while visiting her aunt Charlotte and her cousins in the Netherlands and the two married about a year later.
[3] A rather unimpressive wife for a British king but there is a noticeable lack of truly suitable princesses of age with William. Plus, IOTL Marie seems to have been well received by the Prussian court so I figured she would work well enough.
[4] Ernst III is the eldest son of Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha and his TTL wife, Marie of Württemberg (b. 1816). He was previously married to Anna of Hesse and by Rhine, but she died of puerperal fever after giving birth to a stillborn daughter.
[5] This match is, of course, arranged by Queen Olga of Württemberg.
[6] Albert is the younger brother of Ernst. Like his great uncle Ferdinand, he converts to Catholicism after his marriage to a Catholic woman.
[7] Daughter of Anna of the Netherlands and Albert of Prussia.

Edward Tudor, Duke of Somerset (1498-1547) m. Eleanor of Austria (November 1498-1558).
Two of Charles' sister marrying into England and to younger sons is way too ASB, specially considering both of them married kings in OTL. Not happening. The best Edward can do is a local noblewoman, John has a shoot at a minor foreign princess, maybe a French, German or Italian girl.

Elizabeth Somerset and Margaret of Brandenburg then?

Elizabeth of Somerset is good for Edward, for John I would suggest Dorothea of Denmark (b. 1504) or Eleonora d'Este (b. 1515), she's a bit young for him but given he has a brother and three uncles with kids of their own, I'm guessing his dad might not be in a rush to marry him.

Also, how come Katherine and Isabel Tudor be married to Protestants in this timeline? Lastly, Elizabeth in Spanish is Isabel, so Kat has two daughters with the same name.

This sounds like a really fun story by the way.

Eleonora d'Este actually seems better.

I always like to believe that even without the Great Matter, Luthern would still have been a big thing in England and I think Arthur would have at least accepted it's existence to the point where he was willing to marry his daughters to Protestants. Also having all of his daughters be queens was a plus.

I know that, but I just like the idea of Arthur and Katherine using both names even though they are the variation of the same name.

Question: let's say Alexandra of Denmark was persuaded / forced / your verbage here to allow Princess Victoria of Wales to marry. Who could she conceivably marry? I know Carlos I of Portugal supposedly asked for her hand but I don't see a Catholic marriage for the daughter of the future king flying. Any ideas?

There were mary options for Toria. She was reported as engaged to some European princes according to newspapers (not exactly reliable) of her time:
  • Friedrich II, Duke of Anhalt in 1888
  • Viscount Chelsea, heir of the 5th Earl of Cadogan in 1889
    • ** He was also related to Toria sister, Maud
  • Ernest II, Prince of Hohenlohe-Langenburg in 1889
  • King Ferdinand I of Romania in 1890
  • William IV, Grand Duke of Luxembourg in 1892
    • ** In 1888 it was reported that he was interested in Maud
  • Grand Duke Paul Alexandrovich of Russia in 1894
    • ** The widowed Grand Duke visited England in 1894 and was related to an English Princess. I never found out if it was Maud or Victoria, but Paul and the Princess in question had different personalities or something
  • Prince George of Greece and Denmark in 1898
Toria also had a flirt with Nicholas II but he fell in love with Alice of Hesse.
In 1896 the Crown Prince of Denmark (later Christian X) proposed to Toria but she refuse. In the same year Prince Max of Baden ask the help of Maria Feodorovna to marry Toria but the Princess of Wales prevented the union.
 
What about a British marriage? Potential husbands:
- Adolphus Cambridge, Duke of Teck later became 1st Marquess of Cambridge (brother of Mary of Teck and son of Princess Mary Adelaide of Cambridge)
- Henry Fitzalan-Howard, 15th Duke of Norfolk, widowed in 1887.
- Victor Cavendish, 9th Duke of Devonshire
- John Montagu Douglas Scott, 7th Duke of Buccleuch

To name a few potential husband.
The Duke of Norfolk was a Catholic.
There was however the 6th Duke of Bedford (single until 1889) and the 9th Duke of Beaufort who remained single until 1895 (his son, the 10th Duke marry Queen Mary niece, Lady Mary Cambridge).
I always wondered about a friend of the Duke of Clarence, George Holford. He did not have a title, but he was wealthy, handsome, close to the royal famoly and had an interest in common with Toria (gardening).

I've never heard of any of these possible matches - thank you for giving me such options!

I have never heard of George Holford before but now I'm very, very interested. Two of his sisters married earls so it might not be such a stretch to bump him up to an earldom to make him acceptable. I honestly just want Toria to be happy.
 
only that unlike the OTL War of the Austrian Succession she didn't place her husband as Holy Roman Emperor, she got it
Not gonna happen. Unless there was some sort of change way back when (I'm not even sure how early it would need to be, to be honest, probably with the Carolingians or Ottonians) a woman can't be elected empress for the simple reason that in Germany, Salic Law (the real one, not the French bastardized version of it) applied. And the electors were all male. Which makes it questionable why they would a) elect a woman over her male-line (presumably of age) uncle and b) if there was no other male candidate, why they wouldn't put themselves forward to marry her (since she seems to be single).

Karl IV's uncle was considered to be the unofficial heir due to being the closest male relative of the emperor, he wanted his sister to gain the throne (she was married to said uncle's second son, so it wasn't possible to simply go wait a generation so she could get it) and pulled a Pragmatic Sanction on that by changing the laws of succession to the House of Hapsburg, theorizing that it would de facto mean that she would also get the title of Emperor (as since in 1748 the College of Electors became an entirely cerimonial position, with the election being by law required to go to a Hapsburg). When he kicked the bucket (of a simple cold due to being sickly since birth), said uncle claimed that while it may be true to the Hapsburg Crownlands the decision, he should get the title of Emperor, as well as any territories not contiguous to Austria (ergo, Trier and all those smaller dots around Germany), sparking the civil war as some supported him and others supported her, while many were neutral on the matter.
Not even post-Westphalia with all Ferdinand III (who was a pretty smart cookie as Habsburgs went) legal finangling of grabbing more power for the Habsburgs/emperor by playing the members of the empire off against one another (Brandenburg vs Neuburg; the Palatinate vs Bavaria; etc) did he try to pass a law that required a Habsburg to be elected. France and Sweden tried to insert a clause at Westphalia that the position couldn't be hereditary (i.e. that two members of the same family couldn't be elected in succession) but a clause to create such a succession? The electors would all have to be underage kids to allow it. France would never allow it.
And even if they did manage to make it hereditary somehow, hereditary in the German sense meant "Salic Law". The Landshut War of Succession and Bavarian War of Succession were all fought by parties who had an interest in either maintaining Salic Law. Pragmatic Sanction of OTL was more an attempt to push what was, in effect, a house law through as an imperial law. You know why Karl VI had an issue pushing it through and had to bribe people to accept it? Because the German princes were afraid that if they allowed such a law to pass that their own lands would become inheritable by the female line.
Even the Second Reich established in the 19th century was a boys' club - had Wilhelm II had seven daughters instead of sons, and his son had died without issue? None of those girls could've inherited as Empress Wilhelmine. Instead, the imperial crown would've gone to his brother. Then his brother's sons. If Heinrich had no sons, then the crown would've gone to Wilhelm I's eldest brother's line.

People often think that the College of Electors was the highest body and that the Empire was an absolute monarchy, but there was both a Reichstag (imperial parliament) and a Reichshof (essentially an imperial law court) that would need to register such a law. Since you've kept all the inter-border insanity that was a pre-1800 empire, that means you have nearly 300 votes in the Reichstag that need to agree on registering a law to not only make the position hereditary (de facto) to the Habsburgs but also allow a woman to succeed/rule. And then, since you decided for still more insanity by allowing people such as Tudors/Stuarts (or whatever dynasty is ruling England) and Bourbons (you mentioned the prince de Condé having lands in the empire) to have territories such as Fulda and Condétown, they would also have a seat/vote in the Reichstag, and no doubt control a few more votes/seats. Which means that France/England are going to use their voice in the Reichstag (as France and Sweden did at Westphalia) to sow chaos and oppose the Habsburgs, since a strong empire means one that stops tearing itself apart and can take them on.

Sorry if this sounds snarky, but the empire being made any more hereditary than it was (OTL even the elector of Hannover - who under his "letters patent" creating him elector was obliged to always vote Habsburg didn't in 1741 after Karl VI died) seems implausible under the scenario you posited.

And interesting, would they go for a double Dutch marriage, or does the marriage of Charles Junior occur if he's in exile?
Double Dutch match would be something either desperate or stupid given that match of Mary IOTL was something thought below the rank of the eldest daughter of the King.
Though I imagine that, without a Catholic mother, the next generation of Stuarts will be less inclined to Catholicism. Also, are we sure Anne would be called Princess Royal? IIRC that was a direct importation from France via Henrietta Maria.

So he may well (with condition of conversion) designate his Lithuanian nephew heir to Muscovy - or at least a contender.
