    Feeble Constitution - A Red-and-Green Russia 1917 Timeline

    Yeah, it will almost certainly be Charles Evans Hughes, who will most assuredly be alive. (Unless Salvador decides he dies, but honestly, after two reasonable deaths, throwing a third one in for lulz would be a rather silly move.)

    Feeble Constitution - A Red-and-Green Russia 1917 Timeline

    If Knox dies on schedule--and there's no reason he shouldn't--then Harding will get enough of the Presidency to probably send him off at about the same time. At which point the Secretary of State becomes President #3 in the chain.

    Feeble Constitution - A Red-and-Green Russia 1917 Timeline

    She's also a white supremacist and segregation supporter. Still, this does beat out the OTL's first third party woman VP candidate, Marie Caroline Brehm for the Prohibition Party in 1924.

    WI: A pope killed by other Christians

    Technically, this likely happened quite a bit during the Formosian disputes, as the pro and anti-Formosus factions both got pretty murder-happy.

    King Theodore's Corsica

    May we also assume Pytor is getting a Russian-style divorce, and perhaps marrying his longtime mistress Elizabeta Vorontsova?

    O tempora, O mores! The Catiline Conspiracy suceeds

    *The fervently nodding, manically grinning Jack Nicholson meme, but it's Clodius.*

    King Theodore's Corsica

    He's had a good run.

    King Theodore's Corsica

    Which Catherine THEN turned around and frequently used to create the impression of herself as a liberal ruler bringing enlightenment to backwards Russia abroad. One has to admire the woman's chutzpah.

    Shakespere dies of the plague

    A name that doesn't seem to have existed before Shakespeare created it.

    Shakespere dies of the plague

    Don't forget the name 'Jessica'.

    King Theodore's Corsica

    The thing is, the longer Peter rules, the tougher it is for Catherine to pull off a coup, and the more likely she is to get sidelined by Peter. Which is my way of saying, keep Peter in power.

    King Theodore's Corsica

    Right--the name's likely to show up, because the Buonapartes were fond of it, but his OTL father is probably a genetically similar but not identical individual living in Corsica, and his OTL mother was never born, and her family lives in Genoa now.

    King Theodore's Corsica

    So, if Austria does what it never wanted to do, it will do what it also never wanted to do? Ahh. Simplicity itself.

    King Theodore's Corsica

    The fact that Austria didn't WANT a unified Germany?

    Like that ever stopped them.

    King Theodore's Corsica

    Even Catherine needed some level of popular sentiment against him to move. If that isn't there, her scheme becomes too dangerous to be practical, and likely unwinds in the opening stages, making it easier, not harder, for Peter to remove her.

    King Theodore's Corsica

    Interestingly, without an unpopular peace treaty with Prussia, Peter stands a good chance of avoiding assassination, and Catherine stands a good chance of being shuffled off to a monastery.

    King Theodore's Corsica

    Pretty much. It was hard being a financier in the early modern era. Better than it had been in the medieval era, but that didn't take much.

    King Theodore's Corsica

    It happened all the time. As for what happened, it depended what state you were.

    King Theodore's Corsica

    The late Genoese Republic was one of those nations that less existed, and more persisted.
