  1. Challenge: Greater Hungary after 1945

    After the Fall of Communism in Eastern Europe, Hungary began disarming, abolishing conscription, selling it's guns, etc. But what if they weren't so pacifistic? In 1989 there was a violent revolution in Romania, a perfect opportunity for Hungary to invade and take Transylvania away. After...
  2. WI: No schism, Luther not considered a heretic but his reform proposals are accepted

    The title says all. Luther never wanted to form his own church and make a schism. Let's say that Luther's ideas aren't considered heretical, and Rome reforms itself instead of denouncing Luther, therefore splitting the previously Western Christianity into the conservative Roman Catholicism and...
  3. WI: the Hungarians invite the Normans in

    So... let's say that Medieval Hungary - possibly in the late 11th century or early 12th century - invites some Knights in from Normandy, to deal with one of their neighbours... like the Pagan Pechengs. And promises them land, let's say, they can rule Wallachia and Moldavia (which were ruled by...

  5. What if... (a combined idea)

    -Persia becomes Christian AND -A Dynastic or Personal Union between the Sassanid Empire and the Göktürk Khaganate (therefore, the Turks become Christian too) The Persians becoming Christian idea was already employed here, but as I see, it looks dead, so I took the liberty to ask HistorianofAlt...
  6. An Islamic Japan

    Let's say that Muslims somehow managed to find a way to Japan... They could have somehow conquered China and Korea and spread Islam through Korea, or, they could have colonized Taiwan and spread Islam to Japan. Or, we could have had Mongols converting to Islam earlier, and making Kublai...
  7. WI: Hungary won the Battle of Mohács in 1526

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Moh%C3%A1cs Let's say that the Hungarians somehow managed to win the battle. Does it prevent Hungary from being ovveran by the Ottomans? What's next? How much is history changed? Does it prevent Hungarians from becoming a minority people in Greater...

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demographics_of_hungary#900.E2.80.931910 What if Hungary was ruled by strong and competent Kings in it's late stage, instead of weak-handed and incompetent ones, like Vladislaus II and Louis II? Let's say that King Mathias's son - or relative of some sort, or...
  10. Challenge: make the "-us" and "-um" endings stay

    In the Italian language, the Latin "-us" and "-um" were replaced by "-o" endings, in OTL. Julius became Julio. Marius became Mario. Marcus became Marco. Latium became Lazzio. So, I'd like to get this change butterflied, so that Italian continues to put "-us" endings on male names and...

  13. WI - Carolingian Spain / Franciberia

  14. Challenge: Phoenician/Punic/Greek colonization of the Americas

    Make the Phoenicians, Puns (Carthagians) or Greeks colonize the Caribbean, and possibly Mexico and Florida as well. Shouldn't be very difficult. Make the colonization happen before the 3rd century BC. You can even make the Romans conquer the colonies later.
  15. What if - More slaves for Portugal?

    By 1550, Portugal, had become the wealthiest, most powerful nation in the world with colonies in Asia, Africa, and South America. Black African slaves were brought into Portugal from Africa between the middle 15th century until slavery was banned in the late 19th century, when Africans were...
