    More years for the Prince – A Trastamara TL

    More years for the Prince

    In order to achieve an alliance with Queen Isabella I of Castile and King Ferdinand II of Aragon, Maximilian started negotiating the marriage of their only son and heir, John, Prince of Asturias, to Margaret, as well as the marriage of their daughter, Juana, to Philip. Margaret left the Netherlands for Spain late in 1496. The marriage took place in 1497.

    The Journey of Princess Margaret to Spain was tough that she believed that she would die in the voyage but she would make it.

    John would recover from his ailment after consummating his marriage, his own reason for surviving was to be able to see his own child and wife to grow up, he would be able to see his wife, Margaret give birth to a daughter named Isabel on July 2, 1498, named after her own mother in law and they were forbidden to consummate their marriage for years after her husband’s recovery until 1500, when her husband would gain strength and she would give birth to two further children which would grown up into adulthood which Margaret carried to Term, Ferdinand(May 2, 1502) and Catherine (December 10, 1506), her husband, Juan would die on 1507 due to malaria and Margaret would remain in charge of her own three surviving children.


    Treaty of Blois

    The Treaty of Blois (1504), also known as the First Treaty of Blois, was an agreement between Louis XII of France and the Catholic Monarchs. It was signed on September 22, 1504, at Blois. The treaty centered on an agreement of marriage between Claude of France and Ferdinand, the son of the Prince of Asturias, with Claude carrying a dowry that included Brittany and France and Spain agreeing to bestow Naples upon Ferdinand. In exchange Madeleine of Navarre would be returned to Navarre, the treaty terms would be changed as Anne of Brittany would give birth to a son named Louis (October 10, 1510) who would be betrothed off to Agnes of Spain and the treaty was adjusted to favor the both parties of Spain and France in which Naples would be bestowed to Ferdinand on his marriage to Claude of France and now Brittany would be secure to the French crown as a male heir was born, however this treaty would mean also the weakening of the Spanish-German alliance, afterwards the treaty in 1504, Madeleine was released, Madeleine of Navarre was married off to Gaston of Foix soon after her release from captivity.

    Infanta Catalina

    Then-15-year-old Catherine met Arthur on 4 November 1501 at Dogmersfield in Hampshire. Little is known about their first impressions of each other, but Arthur did write to his parents-in-law that he would be "a true and loving husband" and told his parents that he was immensely happy to "behold the face of his lovely bride". The couple had corresponded in Latin, but found that they could not understand each other's spoken conversation, because they had learned different Latin pronunciations. Ten days later, on 14 November 1501, they were married at Old St. Paul's Cathedral. A dowry of 200,000 ducats had been agreed, and half was paid shortly after the marriage.

    Once married, Arthur was sent to Ludlow Castle on the borders of Wales to preside over the Council of Wales and the Marches, as was his duty as Prince of Wales, and his bride accompanied him. The couple stayed at Castle Lodge, Ludlow. A few months later, they both became ill, possibly with the sweating sickness, which was sweeping the area. Arthur died on 2 April 1502; 16-year-old Catherine recovered to find herself a widow and pregnant giving birth to a son named Henry on November 2, 1502, named after his own grandfather, who would succeed as the new King on 1520 after the death of Henry VII, several years after the birth, Catherine of Aragon would remarry to Christian II of Denmark.

    On 1503, a betrothal between Archduchess Eleanor of Austria and the future Henry VIII would be arranged by Philip the Handsome and Henry VII.
