By "Stuart Line" I of course mean the Stuarts of England and Scotland. They were forced from there throne after King James II and VII lost his crowns to William of Orange and ironically his own daughter Mary. This would be a good POD (if James had managed to keep his crowns) though I feel its been done too many times so what about this: Charles II and Catherine of Braganza have children. If this happened then the Duke of York (James) would not have been a problem, Charles would not have had to dissolve Parliament over quarrels of succession, an entirely different royal family would reign today...
