On 1492, Columbus would land in an uninhabited land and the crew was unimpressed and mutinied against him and killed him and they were never heard off again and they would go in separate ways, never to return and some of them sailed to unknown lands.
At one point in the 1490’s Isabella thought that she had wasted her own efforts in finding the lands to the east and she was convinced that further exploration to the west was a waste of time.
The people would recognize the Columbus expedition as a voyage that would be a precursor to the ones that explored the Western Hemisphere which are Cabot(1498) and Cabral(1500).
Juan, the son of Isabella of Castile would die in 1500 and his wife Margaret would have a still birth in 1498.
On 1498, Isabella of Aragon would give birth to Miguel da Paz in Portugal and her son, Miguel da Paz would turn out to be healthy healthy and Isabella of Castile would decide to devote herself to the union of the Iberian crowns and betrothed Madeleine d’Albret to Miguel da Paz, despite that Isabella of Aragon would die in 1499 due to fasting and her husband would remarry fast to Maria of Aragon.
Isabella would feel quite sad at the news that Portugal would gain the exploration of the new lands, but she knows that Castile would benefit from the union due to this and the unification of the Spanish Kingdoms would be complete.
The Treaty of Blois On 1503, Northern Catalonia which is disputed between France and Spain would have been decided by Louis XII on the treaty of Blois on 1504 which he met with Spanish ambassadors and it is decided that Naples would have gone to Madeleine, the French and Navarrese princess under Spanish custody would have the French claims to Naples and that the French would gain Northern Catalonia in exchange of losing claims to Naples but Cerdagne or Cerdanya would be under the Spanish control. Anne of Brittany would have wanted to marry her daughter, Claude to Miguel da Paz or Charles, the son of Philip the Handsome of Burgundy but Louis XII would block that match and instead insisted on a match with Francis of Angouleme. The French would have made the two other Navarrese Infantas, Anne of Foix-Candale and Germaine as the brides of Vladislaus II of Hungary and Sigismund the Old respectively and Germaine would arrive in 1506 in Poland in order to marry Sigismund the Old.
Another double marriage In 1515, Louis XII would remarry, this time to the young Isabella of Austria, as her own older sister, Eleanor is already married to the Duke of Lorraine, unfortunately, the marriage would never be consummated as he died in 1516. It was said that Isabella would remark that Louis XII is old enough to be her grandfather, she is lucky that her marriage with Louis XII would not be consummated and later she became the bride of Henry II of Navarre. His stepdaughter, Anne is married to Francis of Angouleme or Francis II of France. In 1515, Isabella of France, his own eldest daughter with Anne of Brittany would marry Charles of Burgundy the brother of Isabella, the marriage would also be attended by Archduchess Margaret and her daughter Maria of Savoy(May 10, 1504), her posthumous daughter with her second husband, as well with Archduke Philip. There was another problem in the marriage and this was Isabella was also made the heir of Anne of Brittany to her duchess of Brittany but Francis I of France would later deal with the claims of Isabella and her other daughter Renee since Renee is betrothed (and later married) to the Duke of Ferrara. Francis I would decide to give Renee a good dowry and Isabella the whole Burgundian inheritance and his claims to the Milanese inheritance. The marriage of Charles and his wife, Isabella of France would produce two surviving children Archduchess Magdalena(December 10, 1523) and Archduchess Margarita(January 10, 1526), he would swear to never remarry after her death in 1530 leading to him without a consort on his reign on 1540, it was said that he decided that in order for the Habsburgs branches to unite via the marriages of Magdalena and his brother, Maximilian’s eldest son with Anne of Bohemia, it was said that he did not remarry due to him wanting the Habsburg inheritance to unite after the death of his wife, Isabella.
Joanna of Naples On 1505, the negotiations to marry Joanna of Naples and Henry VII would succeed and she would arrive in 1506, her husband would be delighted with her and immediately consummated the marriage, however he would die on 1508 which would cause his plans for his son Henry to Eleanor and Henry would marry Catherine whose marriage would be annulled 19 years after as it only produced a daughter named Mary(1516), the Queen of Scotland. Joanna of Naples would give birth to a daughter named Catherine(December 10, 1506), Joanna of Naples would remain in England after the death of her second husband, it was said that her husband would die due to overexertion but he had died happily said the people who had described Queen Joanna.
A Captive Princess A Princess in Selurong, Dayang Kaylangitan would writhe in pain as she is being made as the feast of her captors, the victors who slain her father, the chieftain of Tondo and she would await her own fate and she would be thinking what would happen to her in the future and she would believe herself that she would decide the fate of her own land but a dream that she had said that she should not escape and marry the man that Bolkiah wanted her to marry and not escape as driving the Bruneians away from her land would further the misfortune of her lands. Dayang Kaylangitan and the other lords of Selurong would sign a peace treaty with the Bruneians leaving the lords in the north that remained independent would be in peace with Bolkiah and the lands annexed by Bolkiah would remain under the Bruneians and she would marry Lontok, a son of a concubine of Bolkiah.
kasumigenx, I find this idea very intriguing. How much do you Know about John Cabot(JC) and Matthew? I know a little but certainly are no expert like I am in Single Malt, Bourbon and fine cigars and beautiful women of dubious character.
That said this is what I can remember. JC met with King Henry VII, who gave him a grant to seek out, discover, and find new lands for England. In early May of 1497, JC left Bristol, England, aboard Matthew, a fast and able 50 ton ship with a crew of 18 men. JC and his crew sailed west and north, under JC's belief that the route to Asia would be shorter from northern Europe than Columbus's voyage along the trade winds. First mention of a NorthWest passage? On June 24, 1497, 50 days into the voyage, JC recorded in the Matthew's log he landed on the east coast of something, in his opinion China.
The precise location of Cabot’s landing is subject to controversy. Some historians believe that Cabot landed at Cape Breton Island or mainland Nova Scotia. Others believe he may have landed at Newfoundland, Labrador or even Maine. Though the Matthew's logs are incomplete, it is believed that Cabot went ashore with a small party and claimed the land for the King of England
In July 1497, JC sailed for England and arrived in Bristol on August 6, 1497. Cabot was soon rewarded with a pension of £20 and the gratitude of King Henry VII.
In February 1498, JC was given permission to make another voyage to North America. JC got underweigh in May from Bristol, England, with five ships and 300 men. The ships carried ample provisions and trade goods such as cloth, lace points and other English manufactured items. One of JC's ships was badly damaged put in to Ireland, while the other four ships continued on. From this point, there is only speculation as to the fate of the voyage and Cabot.
It was believed that they foundered at sea. However, documents have recently emerged that place Cabot in England in 1500. If these are correct JC and his crew actually survived the voyage. There is also evidence to suggest that JC's expedition explored the eastern Canadian coast, and that a priest accompanying the expedition might have established a Christian settlement in Newfoundland.
I would think this would provide the bones for the first part of this time line.
FWIW, I visited a replica of Matthew in Sydney while doing a family vacation of Nova Scotia & Cape Breton. Hell my dad's eastern Rig fishing Dragger was bigger.
