    Assuming Brazil breaks up Gran Colombia, how the post bolivarian order would look like?

    WI: France Conquers Brazil?

    Otl, the 1550s saw a failed French invasion of Brazil. Looking at France and Portugal, it seems to safe to say that if France had sent, like and actual army of almost any size and not like a 500 man mob, they could probably take it. So what if France took Brazilia?

    Could Portugal abolish slavery in Brazil in 1791?

    The biggest stain in Brazilian history, worst than any dictatorship or wars and the main cause of most of our social problems was slavery. Brazil was the last country in America and the last of the Western world (if you consider Brazil western) to abolish slavery, in 1888, and the slavers were...
  8. DBAHC: Screw the Brazilian Empire

    Your challenge is to have things go significantly worse for the Brazilian Empire than they did IOTL. It doesn't necessarily have to outright end (either with a bang or a whimper), but it needs to be considerably less successful.

  12. Largest Brazil Possible Post-Independence

    After Brazil becomes independent, how large can the country get? Could it gain more territory from its neighbors than it did? Can it gain a part of the Pacific coast?

    Napoleonic Victory=Brazil Wank?

    Now i think we all know that the Portuguese royal family ran to Brazil after Napoleon took the kingdom's homeland.
