    AHC: Earlier Brazilian Republic WITHOUT total balkanization

    With a POD of 1822, how early can you get Brazil to get rid of its Monarchy and become a Republic WITHOUT it totally collapsing into multiple nations.

  6. A Portuguese victory at Pirajá?

    While it would be a mistake to say that Brazil's independence was entirely peaceful, it was still thankfully much less violent than what took place in the rest of Latin America.

  8. AHC/WI: Brazilian United Americas

    Whenever someone thinks of a united North and South America, they (understandably) think immediately of it being led by the US. But what if it was united by their more southern neighbor? Starting in 1822, how can we get a Brazilian-led unified Americas by the year 2200 (just thought giving 400...
  9. Brazil enforces the 1831 prohibition of the slave trade?

    At the pressure of Great Britain, the Empire of Brazil outlawed the importation of slaves from Africa in 1831. After a few years, however, the slave trade returned with a vengeance and the law was blatantly disrespected, with as many as 800.000 slaves being brought to Brazil in the period...

    O IMPÉRIO TROPICAL “It stumbles, but hasn’t fallen.” The night of the 9th of November of 1889 was certainly one to remember, rare were the occasions where the Royal Family held a ball, but when one happened, it was a major event for the aristocracy of the Empire. It was an important day...

    Next Timeline Survey

    Hello, you know when I said I planned to do part two of Empire of Freedom by centering in Britannia on the 20th century.

    Robert E Lee: Hero of Paraguay

    Inspired by the thread Robert E Lee stays entirely neutral, I wrote a comment about a proposal for a Robert E Lee who instead of fighting in the American Civil War, fights in the Paraguayan War.
