19th century

  1. Population growth in a stabler Mexico

    Between 1800 and 1900, the Mexican population grew from roughly 6 million to 13.6 million. The USA, however, grew its population from 5.3 million to an enormous 76.2 million. I assume this is a result of instability and lower levels of migration, and my (admittedly brief) research seems to...
  2. In my new TL, Napoleon wins ... What happens next? (Maps included)

    Every now and then I think up a new Napoleon victory scenario with a little more knowledge then before, and a different goal. This time I wanted to get Napoleon’s maximum (and extremely generous) somewhat-plausible victory based on avoiding his worst mistakes and making some good ones, and...
  3. Tondo Kingdom in the Spanish period (1571-1823)

    The timeline shall be the first of a series of TLs about an ATL Spanish Philippines, established by Legaspi and slowly decentralizes into numerous states upon the dawn of the 18th century, before I eventually return on continuing the Novales timeline.
  4. The Philippine Empire: Revolutionary War 1823-1826 (Revised)

    Note: This was a major revision of the old one since by that point, it was realized that the TL itself had become too idealistic. The threadmarks of this new thread shall be sourced from my test thread.
  5. Japanese Industrialization happens 20+ years earlier, Europe power projection in Asia is weaker, how much land does Japan want / can take?

    So I'm making another Napoleon Victory timeline, this time focused on giving Napoleon the greatest plausible victory (definitely stretching the definition of plausible). The outcome is most of Europe remains under French rule (so no Dutch, Portuguese, or Spanish empires), the Russians so badly...
  6. The Philippine Empire: Revolutionary War (1823-1827)
    Threadmarks: Introduction 1

    This alternate timeline would cover an alternate history of the Philippines, from the the year 1823, the year of Andres Novales' revolt, to the early 20th century following the end of the Philippine Revolution (1896-1899) I would first tackle of an alternate war of independence that started in...
  7. I need help figuring out my newest Napoleon Victory TL (Map included

    This time, unlike my last TL, I want to avoid France's dramatic population lag and confirm them as the #1 Power, more effectively neutering the UK and Russia. The lore this time is simple. I want to prevent Napoleon's four greatest mistakes. 1. Not Dismantling Prussia. 2. The Continental...
  8. WI Spain keeps more of the Caribbean during the 19th century?

    The Spanish Empire in continental America collapsed during the Spanish American Wars of Independence. However, not all of Spains territories in the new world were lost to Mexico, Gran Colombia, etc. Spain still had naval dominance in the caribbean, and was able to keep Cuba and Puerto Rico. They...

    How different would the Scramble for Africa be if the Boer Republics, Madagascar and the Ashanti remained independent?

    I came up with this idea for my TL I'm trying to piece together and thought it would be cool to how different things would if a few African States stayed independent besides just two countries. For the Boer Republics I'm obviously referring to Transvaal and the Orange Free State, Madagascar is...
  10. The New Order: A Successful Selim III
    Threadmarks: Part 1: Of Bandits and Princes

    ------------------ Part 1: Of Bandits and Princes If history can, with much effort made by those who study it, be considered a series of smaller, usually predictable (and often romantic) narratives intertwined with one another - all protagonized by kingdoms and empires which formed, grew and...

    Plausibility check: Russia never goes communist, develops into a democratic country. How do they celebrate Christmas ?

    In OTL history, Russia's relationship with the Christmas holidays and the Christmas festive season has been complex. Especially in more recent modern history, of the last ca century or so. Traditionally, most Russian Christians have been Russian Orthodox, so it's no surprise that they celebrated...
  12. What if Argentina kept Equatorial Guinea?

    Spanish Guinea was administratively attached to the Viceroyalty of Rio de la Plata from 1778 until independence in 1810. After the May Revolution, the colony was forgotten about and fell into disrepair. Trying to keep the territory together in the mainland after the revolution was already enough...
  13. What if the Sikh Empire / Panjab Industrialized by 1846?

    So in this case let's say Punjab / Panjab/ the Sikh Empire realizes what is happening around the world and, quickly industrializes and westernizes in 15 years i.e. 1831 to 1846. How does this change history after that?

    A Few Sentences before beginning……… Very few women walked the streets and sat on the balconies of their home in late 2018 without the excited murmurs of ‘World Cup’ being passed from their lips. The centennial anniversary of the Women’s Cricket World Cup (WCWC) was set to be a great...

    Dutch Empire and the Great War

    Is there a way to make the Dutch Empire stronger / larger but let WW1 still occure as OTL. I was for example thinking about a remaining Dutch Ceylon, but are there more possibilities? Your thoughts?

    What if the Confederacy captured the White House?

    Many people know that the Confederate States tried to capture Washington D.C or threatened the capital during the battle of Fort Stevens but what if the Confederate States succeeded? What if the Confederate States took over Washington D.C.? But, in this scenario, the Confederates still lost...

    Society and Politics in Britain where There’s No Great Reform Act

    How would society and the political situation in Britain during the 19th century evolve in a situation without the Great Reform Act being passed? Would it be affected by Revolutionary movements in 1848? How would this affect the Chartists? In otl they planned on marching in a large protest...

    Frederick III lives for another 20 years

    Frederick III of Prussia became German Emperor in 1888, ruling for 99 days before dying. He was the son of Wilhelm I of Prussia, and father to Kaiser Wilhelm II of Germany. Frederick III was quite liberal minded, having close ties to Britain, professed a hatred of warfare in Prussia of all...

    Colonial pursuits of a Carlist Spain

    What if the Carlists won the First Carlist War (1833-1839) and Prince Carlos became king Carlos V. What would be the colonial consequences of this? Will Spain be more involved in the Scramble for Africa or in Asia or will they do more in the New World with Mexico or something? And thus: will...

    Power of The Netherlands with a bigger empire?

    As you all probably noticed, I am really really interested in Dutch history and I am full of ideas for alternate histories about this. Besides, I’m also going to study history on the university. Currently I am working on a United Kingdom of the Netherlands timeline, but I have a new question...
