    Discussion: What was your first Alternate History idea?

    Threadmarks: Home Post and Example Post - The Arthurian Age: Arthur survives the sweat in 1502 - King Arthur I (1509-1552)

    I've seen some list topics of Alternative Monarchs or Aristocrats, but most only allow lists or family trees, here you can talk precisely about the monarchs and the stories themselves, here you can talk about a real monarch/aristocrat whose history was changed or a totally fictional one. This...
