List of Alternate Monarchs and Aristocratic Lineage

Yeah, I figured as much. Since it involves Albert living longer, I'm just giving in and keeping Vicky's marriage the same, as well as Bertie and Alexandra. Not sure about Alice though - might ship her to the Netherlands and avoid the whole Alix of Hesse fiasco
The issue is that Albert was the one behind Alice's marriage. In fact, the only reason it went ahead IOTL (rather than Alice joining her younger sisters marrying nobodies to stay in Britain) was that the marriage was arranged by Albert so Victoria felt obliged to let it happen.

Alix of Hesse is easy enough to avoid. Given the butterflies from Albert's death, it's possible Alix is never conceived. Even if we go with Alice having the same children as IOTL, you could easily have Alix die of Diptheria instead of/with her little sister Marie.

Well you can also simply have Ella and then Alix marrying someone else (Ella had a lot of suitors, Alix can very well marry Eddy as their grandmother hoped)
 
A slightly random family tree from here based on this pod:

WI Boedhe mac Cináeda's son Gille had not died?

Boedhe I of Scotland (b.990: d.1058) m Gruoch of Angus (b.1001: d. 1060)

Issue:

Gruoch ingen Boedhe (b.1018)

Gille mac Boedhe (b.1020)

---------

In 1033, whilst celebrating the marriage of his daughter Gruoch to Gille Coemgáin, Mormaer of Moray, adherents of his rival and the current King of Scots Malcolm II set fire to the building in which the celebrations are taking place. Boedhe, his son and daughter all manage to escape thanks to one of their men finding a side door, however, Gille Coemgáin dies before he too can be found and brought out of the building. Boedhe and his family flee northwards to the residence of Macbeth a claimant to the Mormaerdom of Moray. Upon informing him of what has happened, Macbeth keen for revenge promises to help them. He takes some of his men and marches for the capital of Moray, claiming his spot as the Mormaer, and then marries Gruoch to tie himself to Boedhe. From there, the men of Moray and Boedhe's men march on Dunfermline where they attack King Malcolm in his bed, killing the KIng and some of his retainers. They then hurry onto Scone where Boedhe is crowned King. From there, Boedhe would fight a battle against Cirnan of Dunkeld and Malcolm II's grandson Duncan, defeating the two men and killing them both. Cirnand's second son Maldred would flee southwards to the court of Edward the Confessor, taking his nephews Malcolm, Donald and Mael Muire with him.

Would there be much interest in seeing this turned into a proper timeline?

Hello

In the chaotic mess of random pages torn from alt-history books that make up "Threads of 'An Old English Tapestry'", I present this WIP:
Wessex 1.1.jpg


Thoughts?
 
You'd probably need an earlier PoD to either a) have a different house look like it will lead German unification, b) have Fritz not be the heir, c) have Vicky be Victoria's heiress or second in line to the throne so there's anxiety about a potential Hanover scenario arising with Prussia, or d) Frederick Wilhelm IV has a daughter he insists on marrying Fritz off to.
Not specifically LONG before. Friedrich Wilhelm IV and Wilhelm I BOTH wanted a Russian grand duchess for Friedrich. Now, Nikolai I's daughters would be first cousins, but Mikhail Pavlovich has four daughters. Youngest (Anna Mikhailovna) is born in 1834, died in 1836. Her eldest sister, Maria (born in 1825, died in 1846) might be considered too old, but her sisters, Elizaveta and Ekaterina (born in 1826/27) were both mentioned first for Friedrich III then his OTL brother-in-law's brother, the Grand Duke of Baden.

Another option was Alexandra Alexandrovna (daughter of Alexander II), but when she died in 1849, her younger sister was too young and given Wilhelm's OWN difficulties in marrying Elisa Radziwiłłowna can you imagine selling the Berlin court on a half-Catholic Beauharnais girl (daughter of the duke of Leuchtenberg and Maria Nikolaïevna)? Think you'd have a better shot at marrying the duke of Edinburgh to Maria/Eugenia Maximilianovna (which were proposed as alternative to Maria Alexandrovna) than a-match for a Beauharnais and a Prussian prince

Any ideas about wives for Wladyslaw

Another little favourite of mine:

David Stewart, Duke of Rothesay marries Elizabeth daughter of the Earl of March and consequently manages to avoid his otl death in 1402.

David III of Scotland Reigned: 1406-1420 (b.1378: d. 1428) m Elizabeth Dunbar (b.1380)

Issue:

James, Earl of Buchan (b.1402)

Anabella of Scotland (b.1405)

Christina of Scotland (b.1410)

George, Bishop of Glasgow (b.1415)
 
Lockdown has given my brain far too much time to think, so here, have another one:

David II of Scotland (b.1324: d.1371) m 1stly Joan of England (b.1321: d.1362) m 2nd Margaret Drummond (b.1340)

Issue:

1a) Robert III of Scotland (b.1348)

2a) David, Earl of Perth (b.1366)

------------

Robert III of Scotland would be born in England, during his father's imprisonment in the Tower of London following the failed Battle of Neville's Cross, as part of the terms of his release, David would agree to leave his son in England as a ward for his good behaviour, thus ensuring that when Robert would be sent back to Scotland aged fifteen in 1363, he was seen by many as more English than Scottish and would have a long time to adapt to changing circumstances of his homeland. When his father died in 1371, Robert then aged 23 would be faced with a challenge to his throne in the form of his half brother David, Earl of Perth and his half brother's family the Drummonds.
