Ok, then my second version will be the ultimate. Actually I have always found a surviving Naples annoying and Spanish presence in Southern Italy heartily welcome for the balance of powers down there. That is, according to eu2 engine, Italy is going to be completely absorbed/annexed/vassalized by Spain until 18th century and that is quite historical.I think Felipe II's death is a good choice. Treaty of Cambrai is the end of French affairs in Italy but Spain could then still use a dominant position.
The majior issue will be then how to remove Spanish presence from Italy whe time is coming and Austria will take her hegemonic place.
