  1. Can Napoleon be defeated before the Russian Campaign?

    Exactly as it says: IOTL, the near-total destruction of the Grande Armee in the Russian campaign marked the beginning of his end, beginning practically immidatly with Prussia and Austria switching sides, Napoleons lets say difficult retreat through Germany and also the rest of Germany switching...
  2. Challenge: Este inherited by Hannover

    The Houses of Este (ruling Modena, and Ferrara for a time) and Welf (ruling Hannover, Brunswick, and the UK for a time, of course) are essentially the same House, with the split occuring in, IIRC, the 11th century. That is something I always found way cool, especially as Este-Welf has such a...
  3. Austria keeps Sicily-Naples

    IOTL, Sicily-Naples was the great price Austra ganed out of the War of the Spanish Succession (beesides the Southern Netherlands, or what at that point had remained of them), which, with a Bourbon on the Spanish throne, it overall lost. However, even that compensation price was not to last, and...
  4. More successful Odl Catholic Church

    Link So, basically, in the 19th century, some catholics in Germany, Austria and Switzerland split off due to being pissed off with the 1st Vatican Council, especially the doctrine of papal infabillity. Now, despite the time sbeing very good for such a thing, the Old Catholic Church stayed at...
  5. Occitan Revival

    Some languages, just as Czech and Welsh, experienced a real and drastic revival in the 19th, in the face of lingual assimilation (by German and English in those examples, respectively). Other languages did not manage that and its speakers are nowadays largely assimilated into another language. A...
  6. Those wacky, magnificient Japanese (HRE CoAs)

    Yes, the thread title makes sense... the most detailled colelction of HRE CoAs Ive seen - on a Japanese site? (Well, EQ said it was Japanese and not some other East Asian language, heh) http://homepage.mac.com/linstedt/linische/hre_1.html The URLs are conviniently numbered, so if clicking...
  7. Was Indian union Inevitable?

    Since Faeelins trhead asks the rather trite standard question that mostly gets changed in AH.com ;) I in my neverending quest to oppose AH cliches, and to prevent too large states (no, Germany and Italy are not too large!) ask the opposite question: Was Indian union inevitable? I mean...
  8. Make the Capetians extinct

    With a PoD of no earlier than 1500 (to give a round cut-off date), make all Capetian houses (that is all Houses going back in the male line to the Capetian main line), most prominently among them Valois and Bourbon, extinct in the male line until no later than 1800. When would this best...
  9. Obscure Dynastic Unions: Palatinate-Tuscany

    So, to once again enter the dynastic business. Cant be that Nek dominates the market, there needs to be some competition :D And to up the obscurity level, its not about kingdoms or great powers! John William, Prince-Elector of the Palatinate was married in second marriage to Anna Maria Luisa...
  10. London Steelyard remains, becomes exterritorial

    A weird idea I had. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steelyard - the chief Hanseatic property in England. So what could happen so that it remains and somehow becomes a territory exterritorial from England? Either as mini-state a la Vatican, or as hanseatic or German exclave, or as territory...
  11. Illoyal South Africa in WW1

    So, when WW1 broke out, the two Boer republics had been added to the British Empire just few years ago. Yet, the Boers were one of the largest British forces in Africa. It seems to me that should be easily reversible. So what would have happened if between 1906 and 1914 the integration of...
  12. The entire Burgundian Inheritance falls to Habsburg

    After the death of Charles the Bold, his unwed daughter Mary was offered marriages by both Frnce and habsburg, which both coveted the Burgundian lands. Unwisely, Louis XI already began to occupy Burgundian lands, and Mary married the later HRE Maximilian I. After a short war, most of Mary's land...
  13. Better diplomatic position for the CP

    As the similar thread that inspired me has drifted off into the CP invading Switzerland:confused: , Ill make an own thread. Assume Italy stays with the CP, entering the war 1915, maybe because A-H does hand over Trent, and Gorizia and Gradisca. Also assume that Romania remains either neutral...
  14. It's a Royal Knockout!

    Based on teh discussions here. Interst seems to have vaned in that, but Ive written the first segment, for all its worth. If there is furthermore no interst by the "Collective" to contribute ideas, Ill just usurp the TL ;) But well see. Here's the first installment. It's a Royal Knockout! ...
  15. Alliance wins War of the Spanish Succession

    (Yes, yes, I know theres the other Spanish Succession War TL, the Royal Knockout, and Im actualyl wirting on the first article atm [as nobody else seems to have any remaininbg interest in it, it seems Ive de facto usurped it], but well, for a quick WI... of course, there will be many...
  16. Weakening of the English Monarch gone different

    ...awkward thread title, but I dont know how to describe it better. So, IOTL, both in Germany and England the central monarch got weaker and weaker over time, and the nobility stronger and stronger. Yet, these were two entirely different processes: In Germany, it was not the Reichstag, as...
  17. Brandenburg takes part in Great Northern War instead of War of the Spanish Sucession

    Even though nobody else seems to give a damn about about wars in the late 17th/early 18th century. But worth a try. IOTL, Brandenburg kept a strict neutrality in the Great northern War that happened all around, but sent off up to 10,000 men to far away battlefields in the War of the Spanish...
  18. No restoration of France as Great Power 1815

    IOTL, the Conference of Vienna came to the conclusion that it was foremostly important to keep those pesky democrat movements down, and have a stable Europe with a balance of power. To achieve this, France was not punished but retained its pre-revolutionary borders, lest it become a centre of...
  19. No Thirty Years Wars: Demographic Consequences

    Right. Normally, I dont do social history, but this would be a rather great change, so I find it intersting: Assume for whatever reason there is no 30 Years War. Not a period of perfect peace, either, but the usual amounts of wars, ended by political balance of the two confessions in Germany...
  20. War of the French Succession

    Per wiki (boo hiss): So, what if the IOTL later Louis XV died as well? Per the sucession laws, since Philip has renounced his claim, sucession should go to the Orleans line, though I have no doubt Philip would ifnd a legal reason why his renouncation was meaningless. So wed have another one...
