Eleanor of Austria, around the time of her marriage.

Rainha Leonor

On Lisboa in 1517, Eleanor of Austria would marry the future John III of Portugal as his own mother would have survived giving birth to his sister Maria, due to the difficulty of her last pregnancy, she would no longer conceive although, Princess Maria would survive along with her mother, she would be fine and she would survive until 1530 in her son’s reign.

John has seen that Eleanor is creeped up on her father in law who wants to touch her and her mother in law would not tolerate it, however, John would do his best to protect his own bride Eleanor.

“Eleanor of Austria looks to be a good bride to my nephew the new Queen of Portugal, she is as pious as Isabella, my former daughter and sister in law.”

Eleanor of Viseu, former Queen of Portugal

Charles, King of Castile would be pleased upon the marriage as the marriage would prevent the Portuguese from helping the revolts in the country as long as her husband lived, while John’s sister, Isabella would be married to Charles the King of Castile.

Catherine of Austria would be married off to Charles III, duke of Bourbon, in order to further solidify the alliance between the duke of Bourbon and Spain along with the marriage of Eleanor of Austria to John III, she would only have a single surviving son in the marriage named Charles(1528).

“Eleanor of Austria has proved herself to be a very good maiden and a pious queen, she has done her own duty as the Queen of Portugal quite very well.”

~Mary Boleyn, Mistress of Francis, duke of Angouleme

On 1510’s, the Kingdom of Caboloão and the rest of the former Majapahit influenced parts of Selurong(Luzon) and the would decide against the annexation of the city of Tondo.

During this time, the Portuguese have proven themselves in annexing Malacca and allying with Prabu Udara in 1511, the nobles from the north rejected the suit of marriage with Dayang Panginoan and instead decided that allying with Portugal would be the best for their future rather than accepting the loss of Tondo from the Bruneians and converting to Islam.

In this time both Selurong, the Timorese and Sunda would make negotiations with Portugal in order for alliance against the Muslim Empires that have just emerged in the Malay Archipelago such as Malacca and Brunei.

On 1510’s the Portuguese would visit the land of Selurong the Portuguese would use the name Zambales or Sambali for the Majapahit influenced Selurong that have allied with them, Sambali is another term of Selurong that some call them which is rendered as Sanfotsi to the Chinese, however the south which is under Brunei would be called as Luçon which would be held by the Bruneians, the term would be also from the tribe which the Portuguese would first encounter which are called as Sambal.

The Portuguese would later help them regain Tondo and the lands near it in 1520 under the commander Jorge de Sa however, the price would be giving the Portuguese the towns of Faro, Vigaõ, Macabebe and Tondo in exchange of alliance.

In the version of history, known by many people would be that the Portuguese have gained the cities of Faro, Vigaõ, Macabebe and later conquered Tondo but it was not really the case.

Many of the persistent Hindus from Majapahit would migrate to Selurong/Zambales, East Timor and Bali, the Hindus of Bali and Selurong would carry on the Old culture and legacy of the old empire of Majapahit.

The territory of Zambales would progress from having the cities of Faro, Vigaõ, Macabebe and Tondo under the Portuguese to having all of the territory under Portuguese control gradually.

The Bride that was rejected
On 23 March 1513, the Cortes of Navarre reunited in Pamplona (Iruñea in Basque), greatly reduced to the pro-Spanish Beaumont party, and pledged allegiance to Ferdinand in exchange for his loyalty to the Navarrese laws. In 1515, Upper Navarre was annexed to the Crown of Castile as a different kingdom (aeque principalis), and it would be one constituent part of the Kingdom of the Spains, as Spain came to be known during the following period.

Due to the death of the Queen of France, the Duchess of Brittany, the scrawny daughter of Catherine of Navarre would now become the Queen of France and was dragged to the church to marry the King in June of 1514, she was scrawny, ugly and delicate and she was the former fiance of Francis, duke of Angouleme, she herself was the former fiance of Francis, duke of Angouleme, Consort of Duchess Claude, the marriage contract included the betrothal of Princess Renee with the future King of Navarre.

Anne of Navarre would be able to do her duty as the Queen in 1514 and finally gave birth to a son named Charles after the previous king, in June 10 1515, she would succumb to the effects of giving birth to her own body and she would die in comfort as the Queen of France, after she gave birth Louis XII would distance Princess Claude and her husband from the court and made the Duchess of Bourbon and the later Duke of Bourbon, the constable as regent.

“Anne of Navarre, the Queen of France did not want to be pregnant and get married, her death would have spared her from a life of hardship as the Queen of France”

~Anne Boleyn, mistress of Francis, duke of Angouleme

During that time the English who were arranging an alliance were jilted as Mary Tudor would not marry the French King and the English would change its strategy for Mary Tudor, in that time in March of 1516, Catherine of Aragon would die of puerperal fever and he would marry Catherine of Navarre in the end of the year, Catherine is sister of the dead Queen of France and namesake of his dead wife, Mary Tudor would marry Henry II of Navarre on January of 1517 after a long negotiation despite the fact that Henry Brandon had already debauched Mary, this would cancel his betrothal with the young Renee of France.

“The last words of Catherine of Aragon were her words for Arthur, her first husband and that she had done her own duty as the Queen of England.”

Mary Tudor, Queen of Navarre

The fate of Mary Tudor
On 1516, she is with Henry Brandon who is petitioning to let him marry Mary Tudor and even debauched her in order to prove that she is his, however Henry VIII would not change his mind and he would be able to have her dragged to a betrothal with Henry II of Navarre who married her by proxy in January of 1517 and married her groom in person in March of 1517, she was said to be crying in dover before going to Paris to see her prospective groom.

She would give birth to three children namely, Frances of Navarre(1518), Catherine of Navarre(1519) and John of Navarre(1522).

She would be subject of Romantic novels in the future as her affair with Brandon would create much speculation about her life and love, she would die in 1524 and her groom would marry his original betrothed Renee of France, shortly after her death in the age of thirty two, a marriage that would produced two children; Anna of Navarre, Duchess of Lorraine(November 16, 1531) and Catherine of Navarre, Duchess of Guise (December 16, 1535).

A woman scorned

On 1529, Catherine of Navarre would certainly produce no male heir and Henry VIII would not be satisfied of her own pregnancies as Catherine had produced only daughters and Henry VIII would want to divorce her and there is no valid reason for an annulment but the lack of sons with Catherine of Navarre that he would seek dissolution for his own marriage

On 1530 Mary Tudor would be married off to James V to completely prevent a betrothal with James V and a French princess while Catherine of Navarre and her daughters, Elizabeth and Catherine would go to Rome in order to get support against Henry VIII who wants the marriage nullified and for that reason she would marry her daughter, Elizabeth to Ercole II D’Este in order to get more further support in her cause.

Based on Henry VIII's desire for an annulment of his second marriage (first requested of Pope Clement VII in 1529), the English Reformation was at the outset more of a political affair than a theological dispute. The reality of political differences between Rome and England allowed growing theological disputes to come to the fore. Until the break with Rome, it was the Pope and general councils of the Church that decided doctrine. Church law was governed by canon law with final jurisdiction in Rome. Church taxes were paid straight to Rome, and the Pope had the final word in the appointment of bishops.

The break with Rome was effected by a series of acts of Parliament passed between 1532 and 1534, among them the 1534 Act of Supremacy, which declared that Henry was the "Supreme Head on earth of the Church of England".

After the break from Rome in 1532, Anne Boleyn would marry Henry VIII and give birth to another daughter named Anne(September 10, 1533), Anne Boleyn would end up being executed by Henry VIII on 1538 and married Jane Seymour who gives Henry VIII a son named Edward(October 12, 1537) and Jane Seymour dies on childbirth.

Magellan Expedition
Magellan Expedition

On 1521, Magellan would arrive on Mazasua on March 1521, he would be killed by Lapu Lapu as he is embroiled by the conflict between The Kingdom of Cebu and a vassal of the Sulu Sultanate, the Kingdom of Mactan, on that time, Butuan would now be under the Spanish as they have sworn in to the Spanish.

After the Spanish disembarked on Sugbu, they would kidnap Rajah Aceh where in they would have information on the Bruneian Empire, they would also have the information that the Portuguese already gained the half of the Northern Island, Rajah Aceh would be released a few days after he was kidnapped.

The survivors of the Magellan-Elcano expedition had already returned to Spain having the information on the archipelago, a following expedition by Loaisa in 1530 would strengthen the Spanish hold in the territories of the former Kingdom of Butuan.

On 1517 along with the marriage of Eleanor and John III, Isabella of Portugal and Charles V, the Emperor are married and Catherine of Austria was separated from her mother and married to Charles III, duke of Bourbon, the heir after the Dukes of Brittany and the Duke of Alençon, this would create an alliance between France and the Habsburgs, Isabella of Portugal would give birth to four surviving issue namely Philip (May 21, 1524), Maria of Spain(June 21, 1528), Ferdinand(November 22, 1529) and Joanna(June 26, 1536).

On the marriage of Charles V and Isabella, the Spanish have established the Colony of the Islas of San Lazaro, later known as the Philippines which is south of the territory of Zambales or Selurong although it would not be an issue with the Portuguese until they have conquered the Bruneian territories later on.

The French King’s marriage and the great matter

The French on 1532, where wondering who to marry Charles IX with since the Previous King had died when Charles IX is a kid, Francis, duke of Brittany, the husband of Claude, Duchess of Brittany at this point would have six surviving children; Charlotte, Francis, Henry, Madeleine and Marguerite, Charles III, duke of Bourbon and his wife Catherine of Austria would keep the Breton Valois from the regency and prevent them from trying to kill Charles IX.

Catherine of Navarre tried her suit to marry her daughter Elizabeth and Charles IX, however, Elizabeth would end up married to the Duke of Ferrara and had the support of the pope and none would consider the children of Henry VIII with Anne Boleyn or his son with Jane Seymour, his three daughters are the legitimate in the eyes of the catholic church, he would decide to marry the rosy and beautiful Infanta Maria of Portugal on the advice of his regent Charles III, duke of Bourbon and his wife Catherine of Austria this will push France to a Pro-Habsburg policy.

So in this TL Henry VIII still attempts to destroy the Catholic Church in England but NONE of his daughters can be declared illegitemate as Mary's mother is already dead and Catherine of Navarre is still alive somewhere in Rome.

I think you will do better to exchange the birthdate of the girls as Spain will ask for the eldest and likely get her...
 
Burgundian Split
Burgundian Split

On the birth of another son to Charles V, Ferdinand (1529), he was said to be weak but as he grows older, he is revealed to be strong in 1536, and Ferdinand was given the Burgundian possessions as his own inheritance, Ferdinand, duke of Burgundy would have a good number of Brides to marry, he would rule Burgundy on his own majority on 1540’s.

Ferdinand of Burgundy would prove to be a more native ruler in Burgundy rather than being Spanish focused than his father.

“Charles V was already weary of the conflict of the Comuneros so he would split Castile-Aragon and Burgundy and have Philip focus only in Castile and Aragon”

Mary of Austria
Mary of Austria

On 29 August 1526, Suleiman and his army broke through Hungary's southern defences. Louis and his entire government marched out with a small army of 20,000 men. The Battle of Mohács was over in less than two hours, with the entire Hungarian army virtually annihilated. Louis tried to flee the site of the battle but slipped from his frightened horse and drowned. Mary would mourn him for the rest of her life.

Hungary was divided into three parts: Ottoman Hungary - a part of the Ottoman Empire, Royal Hungary - ruled by Mary's brother Ferdinand, and Eastern Hungarian Kingdom - ruled by John Zápolya. Ferdinand was elected King of Bohemia. Mary took a vow to never remarry and always wore the heart-shaped medallion worn by her husband in the fatal Battle of Mohács.

Mary of Austria herself would know that she is the reason why her husband never had children, she herself is infertile and never pregnant during the years and she would instead become her brother and sister in law’s regent.

Since her husband had his own children by another woman, she would be the one to blame for the fact that she herself did not have any children from her husband, that would be another reason why she would not marry again after recovering from the death of her first husband.

John II of Opole-Raciborz

Jan II never married or had children. The reason, according to reliable sources, was he was impotent. Consequently, many years before his death, Jan II saw the competition between various rulers for his inheritance. Candidates for the domains of the childless were, among others, the King of Bohemia (firstly Louis II Jagiellon and since 1526 Ferdinand I of Habsburg), Zdenko Lew, Burgrave of Prague, and Dukes Casimir II of Cieszyn and Frederick II of Legnica.

During this time, Bona Sforza would be talking about the swap of Silesia and her possession of Bari, she herself would give birth to her two last children, namely Olbracht(January 2, 1528) and Jan(May 4, 1531), Bona and Ferdinand I would put on a deal about the swap of Silesia and Bari and made Bari go to the Habsburgs and made Olbracht as the heir of Jan II of Opole-Raciborz along wih Silesia going to the Polish throne, this deal was sealed by a betrothal between Catherine Jagiellon and Ferdinand II of Austria.

This decision for Poland to regain Silesia was a praised one since it reunited the Poles in Silesia and Poles in the PLC.
