The Valois-Angouleme die off in the male line as in this time line. These Bourbons are the Vendomes, aka the Navarrese ones, correct. The Valois-Angoulemes still die off, despite Francis the II living longer. His brother in Poland has no heirs, his other brothers also have no heirs. His grandson, Henry the IV dies off with no heirs. Thus, Henry of Navarre should be Henry V. I think in my earliest draft I put him up as Henry V, I've no idea how I somehow changed it back to IV.If Henry IV of France had a daughter, then she would only have been about nine at the Treaty of Ghent, given Henry IV of France was born in 1580, she'd also be a Valois Angouleme and not a Bourbon.
Edit: I appreciate part of this may be my fault, I think I used the wrong regnal numbers at points
Henry IV was also Catholic, having been influenced by his Catholic parents and the likely continued part the Guise's probably played. Thus no Edict of Nantes, and probably no Wars of Religion in the first place as Catherine de Medici never becomes Regent of France as Francis II survives.
Also unclear how a French Dowry to the Anglo-Spanish Courts would have compensated for the regaining of the eastern territories of France, as England didn't get them, the Holy Roman Empire did
The French wars of religion still happen, although they blow out of proportion (like otl) after the war of the three Empires.
The Holy Roman Empire is... unclear. Who got them? Austria? The Palatinate? It only makes sense, that the size of the Netherlands (Who are still part of the Holy Roman Empire in this tl, ruled by another branch of the Habsburgs, increase in size). Plus, Spain's territorries are the only French territories with a direct connection to the Holy Roman Empire sans Spain and Italy, unless France annexed Lorraine in this timeline and it was those territorries that were given to whatever HRE power was awarded the land. Otherwise it only makes sense that it is Spain's Imperial territories that are increased.
Yup, they are. Doesn't mean they get along.So, if this Henry of Bourbon is supposed to be some ATL descendant of Henry III of Navarre, remember that the Navarrese Bourbon's are cousins to the Tudor Habsburgs
Nope, Louisa is a daughter of my mistakenly put Henry IV (Actually Henry V). Claude, the queen of France, is older sister of Henry IV. I will change it to a younger sister so it fits the timeline better.Making Louisa a sister of Henry IV could make it work, as with the male succession in France, it would mean that Anglo-Spain and France could never be unified and thus avoid the concerns that drove Anglo-Spain, Franco-Scotland and the Holy Roman Empire to the War of the Three Empires, and it would be age appropriate for the pair.
The Kings of France, then Franco-Scotland:
Francis II, b. 1544, r. 1559 to 1565
Henry I and III, b. 1560, r. 1565 to 1590
Henry II and IV, b. 1580, r. 1590 to "Present"
