    AHC: Greater Belgium/Northern Brabant joins the Belgian revolt.

    The region of Northern Brabant, once known as the Generality lands is a largely Catholic land once part of the old Duchy of Brabant that stayed with the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Part of the reasons Belgium rebelled against the King was because of his Protestantism whereas Belgium was overall...

    Colonial pursuits of a United Netherlands

    Do you have some ideas about possible colonial projects of a United Kingdom of the Netherlands surviving in 1830? Will this stronger union of the low countries be able to expand its colonial empire more than Belgium and Netherlands did OTL?

    PC: Belgium was founded as a republic in 1830

    Reading about Belgian revolution of 1830... I wondered what if Belgium instead of inviting Leopold I, chose to go republican in the mold of Switzerland or USA. Would it be feasible back then? What would the repercussions back then?

    Threadmarks: Chapter I: TL until 1867

    Okay so we had some discussions on this forum about a surviving United Kingdom of the Netherlands, now I want to post the first part of the TL. This goes to 1867. Later I will post some maps and then continue the TL. 1815 -The Congress of Vienna redraws the borders in Europe, with his defeat at...

    Position of the Northern Netherlands in a United Kingdom

    So let’s assume the United Kingdom of the Netherlands stays alive after 1830 because riots are ended quick in august/september 1830 so a wider revolution doesn’t occure. I think it is inevitable that the balance of power will shift to the Southern Netherlands. but then my question is: what will...

    Alternate casus belli WW1

    So if we assume The Netherlands kept Belgium in 1830, will this butterfly the murder of Frans Ferdinand away? If the answer is yes, what are other causes of ITTL WW1 (which will off course be very different)?

    Succesfull Ten Days Campaign in Belgium

    What if the Netherlands got foreign support from Prussia, Austria and Russia in 1831 and they crushed the Belgian Revolution, what would have happened? (The POD will be in 1831). Would there be a second revolution in 1848 and how would it effect things like German Unification, Franco-German War...

    Will a Belgian Partition in 1830 butterfly 1848 and German Unification

    If the Dutch Ten Days Campaign in 1830 was more succesfull and Belgium would be partitioned between The Netherlands, France and Prussia, what would be the effects on especially the Revolutions of 1848 and the German Unification. So let us say that Belgium is partitioned in the following form...

    If the Belgian Revolution never happened, would WW1 still happen?

    So basically this: If the Belgian Revolution never happened and the United Kingdom of the Netherlands stays alive, would WW1 still happen, or wouldn’t it because of the butterflies?

    Alternate Belgium

    IOTL, in 1830, the Belgian Revolution was beginning. Eventually Belgium broke free, supported by France. But after the (failed) Dutch Ten Days Campaign, the Dutch army kept the 3 cities of Antwerp, Maastricht and Luxembourg. IOTL, after the Siege of Antwerp between the French army and the...

    A Dutch Germany

    What if in an alternate timeline, the Netherlands got not only Belgium and Luxembourg in 1815 during the Congress of Vienna, but the Rhineland too. ATTENTION: I am not asking for a discussion about ‘they would never get the Rhineland’ or something like that. I am only asking for: WHAT IF the...

    No Belgium

    After the defeat of Napoleon in 1814/1815, the Great Powers of Europe decided that the Netherlands, Belgium ánd Luxemburg would become 1 country, the United Kingdom of the Netherlands. In 1830, the Belgians started an uprising, and they got independence. POD But what I want to have, is a...

    The Netherlands gets the Rhineland

    What if the Netherlands got the Rhineland during the Congress of Vienna, which king William I wanted? What would the effects of this be on things like the Belgian Revolution, German Confederation and Unification, Dutch colonial empire, and more and more.

    What if the Dutch got back all there pre-1795 colony’s after the Napoleonic Wars

    What if the Dutch got back all there pre-1795 colony’s after the Napoleonic Wars? In OTL, the Dutch lost the Cape Colony, Ceylon, some cities in India and some land around Suriname (Guyana). But what if in an alternate timeline, they got back all these colony’s. What are the effects from this...

    What if the Dutch Empire stays intact after Napoleon?

    During and after the Napoleonic Wars, the Dutch gave Ceylon, Cape Colony, Guiana and some cities in India to the British. But what if they got all these colony’s back. As a result, the Netherlands remains a (middle)great power, which I want to have. So, I thought that the best POD is that...
  17. What would the lack of a July Monarchy have meant for the Belgian Revolution?

    The summer of 1830 was a doozy. The French monarchy fell in July, to be replaced by the more liberal Orleanist kingdom, and not long after, the Catholic provinces of the Netherlands were in rebellion. Assuming the former being avoided does not prevent the latter, what becomes of Belgium? Does it...
