    AH Plausibility Check: Federalized Commonwealth

    Hi all, since the recent passing of Queen Elizabeth II, I’ve been learning more about the monarchy and the commonwealth. I saw a video by J.J. McCulllough in which he said that he knew people in Canada who thought that because the British monarch was the monarch of Canada, the UK, and other...

    Why the Chinese play cricket (an Imperial Federation timeline)
    Threadmarks: Introduction

    The Pax Imperialis (The Peace of the Emperor). Or why the Chinese play cricket (For my beloved daughter Kwaryn) This one of those "the sun never sets" British Empire timelines. However what comes out at the end will very definitely not be the British Empire. Neither is it the Indian Empire nor...
  3. AHC: The British Empire, not the USA, as the Western superpower in the Cold War

    Is it possible, with a PoD ideally after 1922 (the formation of the Soviet Union, though it can be as early as 1917 if the SU still eventually forms, or some similarly recognizable alternative), for the British Empire to remain the premier superpower of the Western world, and take the place of...
  4. Protect the (British) Empire at all costs

    Harold Macmillian's "Winds of Change" speech to the Parliament of South Africa signalled clearly that the the British government had no intention to block the independence of many its colonies, particularly in Africa. As a focal point in the history of decolonization, it marked the confirmation...
  5. Possible Constituent Nations of a Modern Imperial Federation

    I was recently doing some research on South Africa's withdrawal from the Commonwealth and abolition of the monarchy which rekindled my interest in the concept of an Imperial Federation. Therefore I was wondering that should a Imperial Federation exist today, what nations would it comprise of...

    DBAHC: The US Surpasses Britain In Influence?

    Ooc: this is a double blind, where we ask an alternate history question... from an alternate history. We ask what if the south broke away, people in tl 191 ask what if the south didn't. And to establish something: britain has lost india, British Arabia, Egypt and the Suez, but retains the rest...

    AHC: A World of Kings Through 2000

    The challenge is that with a POD (or several, which is most likely needed) no earlier than May 6, 1910, and no later than November 9, 1923, the following statements are true as of January 1, 2000: -The British Empire is the most powerful entity on Earth, headed by the descendants of King George...

    DBAHC: Screw The Imperialist Powers

    Otl, when Teddy Roosevelt brought America into ww1 after the sinking of the lusitania, the Entente, now consisting of Russia, Britain, America and France, quite simply crushed the German Empire and Co. While the Treaty of Provence has been criticized for being excessivly cruel to Germany, with...

    Most Powerful Britain Post War

    Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is thus-Create a TL where britain survives as a major power, only losing a maximum of two major colonies, and the surviving colonies have a more equal governance. I imagine that the soviets would have to be more aggressive in southern Europe and the...

    No Help Coming

    I was watching and was like what would of happened if Benjamin Franklin failed to get French involvement in the American Revolution. I know we would likely lose the war but what would be the fallout of that? How would the world react to a failed American Revolution? How would the British Empire...
  11. Alternate History of Britain: Britain a 21st Century Superpower

    POD: The UK demures from entering The Great War in 1914, against the wishes of David Llyod George and Winston Churchill. However, a compromise is made where David Llyod George and Winston Churchill are tasked with building an Imperial Defence Force, as a deterrent against any possible attack...
  12. What does a longer lived British African Empire look like?

    So let's assume that Britain performs very well in the alt-WW2 and Germany is crushed by the Anglo-French alliance relatively quickly (maybe they go to war over Czechoslovakia), meaning Britain retains a much higher level of prestige on the world stage and the US and USSR don't rise as quickly...

    Why the Chinese play cricket (The Pax Imperialis)
    Threadmarks: Introduction

    VERY BELATED EDIT At the risk of thread necromancy. This version of the TL has been abandoned. While I think it is not too bad, certainly nowhere near as bad as my first two attempts, it did have some some serious issues which could not be fixed without a total reboot. The latest iteration can...

    DBWI: An American Atomic Bomb and no Resurrected British Empire

    As we all know (well, if you're an atomic history enthusiast like I am), you're likely familiar with the results of Tube Alloys, the British atomic bomb project which benefitted strongly from assistance from the Western Allies, most notably the Americans. American capital, resources, manpower...

    AHC: Preserve as much of the British Empire as possible

    With any POD past 01/01/1900, make it so that as of the ATL 2017, the British at minimum still control the White Dominons- which are: Canada Newfoundland (before merging with Canada IOTL 1949) South Africa (pre-1961 Republic) Ireland (IOTL made a dominion during the Free State Era between...

    Threadmarks: Introduction

    VERY BELATED EDIT At the risk of thread necromancy. This version of the TL has been abandoned. Personally I think this iteration is crap, not as b ad as the first, but still something I would not show to anyone myself. Things started improving with my next attempt, but that still has some...

    AHC- Reunify/Restore the British Empire

    Scenario 1: Post-1945 try and hold onto the British Empire, and try and make it more democratic/representative. Scenario 2: Post-2017 try and reunify the British Empire, by either force or through referendums, diplomacy etc. Bonus points if you don't have to fire a shot to hold it together...

    AHC: Britannia remains strong!

    Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to see how if the British Empire can last to the modern day, whether it turns into something else or remains colonial. Your POD can either be 1924, 1933, or 1945. Bonus points for the later ones.

    The Imperial Federation

    Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to create a federalised British Empire in the modern day (Excluding the Raj and the majority of Africa if you want as those are incredibly hard to maintain) consisting of Canada, Australia, New Zealand, UK, South Africa and the port cities such...
