I guessed the same. And by the way do you have some ideas as to the marriages of Mary & William's surviving kids? I'm open to suggestions.
Philip II of Spain for Catherine. For Edmund, either Mary of Scotland or Elisabeth of France. For Elizabeth either Charles IX of France or Frederick II of Denmark.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)
Pretty likely. That also means no Glinski rebellion TTL.Aleksander Aleksandrowicz Jagiellon is declared heir by his uncle Vasily III under condition that he'd convert to Orthodox faith, being more ambitious that religious he agrees-fact, that he has Orthodox mother helps him, and for Glinska-Mikhail Glinski was his father's close friend, so he may know his niece and fall in love with her and secretly marry her Sigismund Augustus-Barbara Radziwiłł style? I'm not sure how likely it was.

Not really, but still Ernest made much more sense as husband for Katherine than Margaret so...Now I get it. But wouldn't Sebastian of Portugal make a better marriage prospect?
correction...Not really, but still Ernest made much more sense as husband for Katherine than Margaret so...
In this scenario Mary Stuart will most likely remarry to Archduke Karl (aka Ernest’s uncle) not to Darnley as OTL and so is likely James VI will be a little older.
Instead infanta Maria as wife of Henry IV of France made zero sense...
Will that Butterfly the Black Prince's early death? And will marrying Eleanor of Portugal mean he has a son at a younger age?
Who is this Eleanor of Portugal? I can't seem to find her anywhere.
I'm assuming, since all Edward III's kids have their OTL "titles" (of Gaunt, of Langley, of Woodstock) that the POD is after they are born? Since it seems pretty weird that all his kids are born in England.Edward III of France and England and m. Philippa of Hainault(a)

If Edward III is recognized as the heir to France.
1.Daughter of Joanna of Naples
because he would spend time in two countries but his children wont.I'm assuming, since all Edward III's kids have their OTL "titles" (of Gaunt, of Langley, of Woodstock) that the POD is after they are born? Since it seems pretty weird that all his kids are born in England.
