Random speculation...

...because my colleagues have been discussing The Tudors...

How would UK history (and indeed world history) have worked out differently if Henry VIII's first wife had given birth to a son?

I mean, presumably, it would have done, but I'm not enough of a historian to speculate on exactly how.

There must be some good speculative fic about it - it's the sort of thing Connie Willis would do, I'm sure, but doesn't seem to have. If anybody can point me in the direction of something - either published or online - I'd be really grateful.
