What about the Merovingians conquering and holding onto all the other the Catholic kingdoms that existed at the time? Is that possible? Or the Carolingians doing the same in their place.Pure ASB. First some matches would be drastically altered, second NOBODY would EVER accept a quarter of that union….
You can NOT put a POD who totally change EVERYTHING and ignoring the MOST DIRECT consequences (as Charles VI’s politics and the matches of his nieces and daughters would be DRASTICALLY altered by the choice of Charles to keep Josepha as his heiress presumptive). Plus if Charles won the War of Spanish succession before Joseph’s death, he would need to leave either Spain or Austria to Josepha
