  1. Bronze Age “Chinese Mesoamerica” in AH works?

    It's called "殷地安 ", was hosted on qidian.com but can't seem to find it anymore, only proof of it was the Baidu Baike entry https://baike.baidu.com/item/%E6%AE%B7%E5%9C%B0%E5%AE%89
  2. Bronze Age “Chinese Mesoamerica” in AH works?

    There's a Chinese Language online novel that had the Shang refugees be the genesis of the Mayans written almost 15 years ago
  3. Edgar Atheling keeps throne

    I've read a web-novel that had a Victorian cavalry officer mind-transplanted/inserted into Edgar immediately after Hastings. He survived in William's court through a friendship with Robert Curthose for awhile before fleeing North under the support of the Morcar/Edwin brothers and the old...
  4. Surviving Tudor, Alternate "Macbeth" or other Shakespeare Plays?

    Yes I should've worded my question better, I did say that Macbeth wouldn't turn out the same way, if it does get written. My second question was basically asking what would Shakespeare write for the Tudors akin to Macbeth i.e. what was the mythical origin of the Tudors. So just Cadwallader...
  5. Surviving Tudor, Alternate "Macbeth" or other Shakespeare Plays?

    If there's a surviving Tudor dynasty, how would Shakespeare's post-Elizabeth plays turn out? Particularly Macbeth, I doubt there would be emphasis on Banquo and Fleance and efforts to paint them in such a good light, unless there's a some sort of a Stewart match for the new Tudor King/Queen...
  6. Plantagenets get the French throne - would they become a French dynasty?

    It would be an easier POD for sure, but if we want to make the same situation allowing Edward III and Henry V to appear, cause you know, butterflies, it's much more difficult. But yes it'll definitely wipe out the Salic Law argument.
  7. Plantagenets get the French throne - would they become a French dynasty?

    That's a weird logic, why can't Edward III or Henry V be the precedence? Although I'm not stating it wouldn't be difficult, it's like Salic law in other countries weren't overwritten with enough compromise or forced applied. Yup my post there did suggest all of the Capetians, but it would...
  8. Plantagenets get the French throne - would they become a French dynasty?

    I'm certainly aware of this, hence why I suggested if Charles VI's son had all died. Furthermore, this was written in response to Ivan Lupo's claim that Henry V had less of a claim than Edward III, which like I said, if he were to push the claim of the surviving child of Charles VI, it would...
  9. Plantagenets get the French throne - would they become a French dynasty?

    Henry V's marriage was done precisely to avoid this, and it could easily be done if he crowned his wife as Queen of France instead. The issue was whether if the other sons of Charles VI still survived, if the English managed to kill Charles VII, and given enough autonomy for the Burgundian, it's...
  10. What if Japan saw an early Satchou Alliance?

    Well to do that you'd require an early enough of a POD to change Satsuma's stance, they were fierce supporters of the retaining Shogunate authority for the purpose of fighting against Choushuu influences despite previously having an antagonistic relation with the Shogunate. They only formed the...
  11. Chronicles of the Caseres of Engaland- Anglo-Saxon victory in 1066

    Yes that's great! And anything beginning with Alf- Al-/Ethel- and Ed- would really hammer home the idea of a Godwinson family related to the Wessex dynasty.
  12. Chronicles of the Caseres of Engaland- Anglo-Saxon victory in 1066

    Yes but Henry VII was of Welsh stock and wanted to hark back to the Arthurian legend, which would not have been popularized at the time of 1066 (nor associated with the Kings of England). Point is, Arthur devoted his life to fight the Saxons which was the basis of Harold's kingship, so to the...
  13. Chronicles of the Caseres of Engaland- Anglo-Saxon victory in 1066

    I'm rather confused as to who this "Arthur" is, or who Mildred is, and why the choice of such a non-Anglo-Saxon name
  14. WI: China wins the Battle of Talas

    True, an often quoted reason for Tang retreat from central Asia was the need to recall the remaining Anxi troops back to quell the Anshu rebellion (and all those crack troops were unfortunately defeated). The most difference it could make is a larger contingent sent by the Anxi Circuit to...
  15. Threads from "An Old English Tapestry"

    Ah sorry I missed that!! Too focused on the Chesterfield cadet branch vs Wilfred (also an unusual name for a Wessex aethling, excuse my keyboard) Thought Ethelstan was nicknamed "the Glorious" or something, and Edmund was "the Magnificent"? Seemed like much better epithets than "the Great" to me.
