    Could the Commonwealth become a Great Power?

    Say, had Poland-Lithuania been a strong state, with it's entire history from the 15 century onwards changed, with, say, the ocean access through friendly Denmark (maybe due to same dynasty), could it aquire colonies in Africa and Asia? What would be it's chances to be a Great Power? At least...

    It's A Long Way To Nagasaki: The Anglo-Japanese War
    Threadmarks: 1. Off the rails and off the cliff

    In 1938 the world had two sources of tension. In Europe Spain was in the second year of its civil war and a embryonic Fascist block was coalescing around the Kingdom of Italy and the ever aggressive German Third Reich. A general European war was feared by all: As diplomats raced to defuse...
  4. Independent Lithuania (Samogitia) with Courland after Partitions of Poland

    Trotsky's Legacy - An alternate history where the Soviet Union wins the cold war

    I made a timeline in which the Soviet Union wins the cold war. The PoD happens in August 1918. In our timeline, Vladimir Lenin was shot after giving a public speech. However, in this timeline he manages to dodge the bullet. Because Lenin never gets shot, he lives long enough to kick Stalin out...

Here's the world in 1990, the usa, and to a lesser extent Eurasia, is still occupied 40 years after the peace treaty, due to major terrorist attacks on each of the occupation...

    It is finally time for me to start my not-so-long-teased new TL (which I teased a lot more in the Our Fair Country Discord server, and is actually just a reboot of an earler TL I did)! Presenting, Patagonia 2.0! This will function similarly to many excellent TLs such as Our Fair Country, A...

    WI: Ferdinand VII accepted the Crown of Mexico

    In 1821, after the Declaration of Independence of the Mexican Empire, the Mexican congress offered Ferdinand VII to become Mexican Emperor, and establish a sort of Commonwealth with Spain and Mexico. But he refused. What if, Ferdinand VII did accept the Crown of Mexico, and became Emperor of...

    Canada, Australia, New Zealand and others, still part of the UK?

    I always wondered this. Canada, Australia, New Zealand and other that I can list are dominions and territories are associated with UK and recognized the British Monarch as their sovereign. However, most of them still have things, like Independence Days, and their own foreign affairs and...
  10. AHC: Reunite the United States and the British Empire with POD after 1848

    Looking at a map of shipping lanes in the 19th century, you'd hardly be able to tell that the US and British Empire were different countries, despite protectionist policies in the United States in the 1800s. How could the economic link between Britain and the United States be made into a...

  12. Vice Lord Protector of the Commonwealth

    So, part of the problem with the British Commonwealth as constituted under the Instruments of Government was that the position of Lord Protector had no clear successor. The Lord Protector could nominate anyone he wanted, but Oliver Cromwell steadfastly refused to do so publicly. His son Richard...

    Result of a Powell style commonwealth?

    As in the title, what would be the result of the adoption of changes to the commonwealth along the lines of Powell’s 1953 Speech on the Royal Titles Bill? (link: https://www.enochpowell.net/fr-74.html) Imagine that the uk parliament were hypnotised by ASBs in the early 1950’s and decided on...

    AHC: Have the Commonwealth drive on the right.

    What would it take for the UK and its empire to drive on the right side of the road like in most of the rest of Europe. BTW: This is also the same scenario for Japan.
  15. WI: Henry Cromwell, Lord Protector

    IOTL, when Oliver Cromwell passed away on September 3rd 1658, he was succeeded as Lord Protector by his eldest surviving son, Richard Cromwell. Richard, however, lacked the authority of his father, particularly when it came to dealing with the NMA, and so he was eventually forced to resign. This...

    House of Stuart goes extinct before Restoration

    The idea here is simple. All the Stuarts, between the execution of Charles I in 1649 to 1659/1660, all died before they could have a chance to return to power after the death of Cromwell. (Say Charles II is killed following Worcester, etc.) What is the fate of England, Scotland and Ireland...

    So for those of you who were around before I left the board, I had a TL called the Commonwealth Wank. I've been asked to revive it or start it over now that I'm back, and I've been thinking about it more and more. So, with a bit of inspiration from @Kanan, I am pleased to announce that I have...

    Henry Stuart Survives His Illness And Becomes King Henry the IX of England (1612)

    One of the key turning points in English history for myself was the death of Henry Stuart in 1612. Strong, virile, and everything the heir to a throne should be, few suspected that in 1612, Henry Stuart would die of typhoid fever at the young age of 18 years old. It makes you wonder what would...
  20. WI: Cromwell decides on full extermination of the Irish

    We are aware that after the Cromwellian conquest of Ireland, the native landlord population to a large extent was pushed beyond the Shannon River into Connacht, and much of the population caught up in the wars were exported as slaves to the West Indies or killed. However, much of the poorer...
