In this alternative history the watchmen fail to stop Guy Fawkes in time and he blows up the king and parliament. Would the popular teenaged Henry IX become king, what policies would he implement, and who would be regent until he came of age? Or would he and Cha-Cha-Charles be assassinated and a foreign ruler or Plantagenet nobleman invited to take power?

How would history be different if the plot had worked?

I certainly think that England would have been devastated to the point that they wouldn't have been able to become a major force in the New World-- leaving either the French or Spanish to have it all. I'm not sure which one of those two would have won out.

Henry Frederick, the boy who would have been king had he not predeceased his father. Assuming Henry IX lived into adulthood, who would he marry, what religious views would he hold, and what would happen to his father's killers?

Is the poster ironic?
 
The thought of GF being some uber libertarian is laughable; one thing he was not interested in was democracy; he set out to destroy democracy and as many innocent lives as possible.
GF had spent most of his life fighting for Spain to destroy the Dutch and the aim of GF, the Wintours, the Wrights, Catesby, Percy &c was the utter destruction of English democracy and the imposition of the yoke of Spain. How this was achieved did not matter to them; neither did their choice of puppet. Whether Henry Frederick, Arbella Stuart or the Spanish Infanta, they didn't care, just as long as England was catholic again.
One thing none of them had was an honest intention!

Naturally the poster is ironic: it mocks our politicians as liars who seek to ruin the country but don't have the integrity to tell the voters. I believe the Plantagenet line survived in several ancient aristocratic families who married illegitimate children of Henry's predecessors (and offspring of Henry himself). With a strong army, a popular-uprising, the support of the church and a foreign power a pretender could potentially legitimise his ancestor and claim the throne

I think the main loss had the plot succeeded would not have been anything to do with James or the governemnt, but to world civilisation as Francis Bacon would have been present when the blast took place.
 
The blast has been reconstructed by the british army here,

I know it is mocking our politicians; that is obv. that is not the fail.
The fail is the lack of depth of historical knowledge that holds GF up as a man with honest intentions; as a man with sufficient integrity that he might look down upon the current incumbants of the house. Neither of which is true.
The irony I was looking for would involve your knowing this but using GF as a model democrat anyway. As a recent delurked newbie I wondered if I had missed a running in-joke.

Which other leading scholars would have perished in the explosion and how would their demise affect modern science?

And how would Catholics have been treated under Henry IX?

In that case probably not much.

Would Henry persecute the wider Catholic community in revenge for his father's death?

Doubtful.
The King was not a victim of assassination or regicide as his son Charles would be.The Prince was a true blue Port no doubt....but there's little to assume he would have done that. Unless he was seeking to confirm the execution of his own grandmother...Mary. And there doesn't appear to have been a need. ER saw to the very complete adoption of the faith. He remained staunchly an adherent until his death. His independence from his father was enough to show his own probable designs as monarch. 
 
A popular and well received young man....He would have been better then his brother if no other reason then he would have sought a prot queen. No 'closet' catholic was he.
 
Hold him dear because thru his Mother...he brought the Danish Viking heritage back into the blood line.Wink

What an amazing painting! He looks a lot more like a she here!!!

And upon just whose standard or plaque is he/she standing upon?

Can anyone read it?

I am always amazed that what is revealed in front of you eyes is mostly ignored via your concentration on only the words!

A cute little beauty, with good legs and a big-ass!

This has to be a fe-male impersonating a male?

No guy could pull of these paintings, but perhaps she
did "pull off" a few of the artists? Smile!

Mini-skirt, any one? Smile

If you are suggesting that you consider this boy, aged 16 or even under in these paintings, as a sexual object, you should think carefully before declaring it on a public forum.
