  1. No WW2 and Alt Cold War: Political Developments?

    Let's create a scenario: WW1 and the Treaty of Versailles happen as OTL, but the rise of the Nazis to power is avoided, with a sane, "vanilla" right-wing authoritarian government taking hold in Germany instead in the wake of the Great Depression. Through diplomacy, maneuvering, and small-scale...

  3. Could the Napoleonic Wars end with a Prussian wank?

    This is far from a subject I'm well versed about, but from what little I know Prussia had a pro-Napoleon party before the outbreak of the War of the Fourth Coalition. How plausible would it be for Berlin to ally itself with France during the War of the Third Coalition in exchange for getting...
  4. What would a dutch-led Germany be called?

    Let's say, in some way or another, the Netherlands manage to unify most of germany for the exception of the southern states like bavaria, Wurttemberg etc.. and the dutch language becomes the dominante and native tongue of the peoples. What would this Dutch majority and led country be called?

  6. AHC: Make West Germany/Germany a part of France's sphere of influence

    Backstory: France's post war vision for Germany was to smash a unified German state into many smaller states and form a French sphere of influence in those German states. Those countries would be looking towards France for their economies, for culture, and for military protection. This all...

  9. WI: No miracles for Brandenburg: Friderick II is killed, Prussia defeated

    Friderick II of Prussia is accidentally killed in August 1759 during the battle. Prussia is completely demoralised and begs for peace, and eventually ends up being reduced to Brandenburg and Pomerania, with Russia taking East Prussia and Austria taking back Silesia. I seriously doubt it would...

  11. Could Luxembourg expand within the German Empire?

    In a CP victory scenario, inwhich Luxembourg joins the German Empire as a new member state, how likely could it be that Prussia cedes the Britburg-Prüm region?

  12. Demographics of a surviving German Empire

    Hello, I was quite impressed with the work done on this thread (https://www.alternatehistory.com/forum/threads/demographics-of-a-surviving-austria-hungary-again.532307/), and was wondering if anyone here had the knowledge to do the same for the German Empire. Differences between this thread and...
  13. King William III of the Netherlands dies without issue: a German on the Dutch throne or a Republic?

    King William III of the Netherlands, who died in 1890, outlived all three of his sons. His daughter Queen Wilhelmina was born in 1880 and succeeded him in 1890, under a regency of course by her mother. She reigned until her abdication in 1948 and died in 1962. Let's say Wilhelmina is never born...
  14. Europe and the rest of the world without WW2.

    The pod is simple: Hitler dies from his wounds after being blinded by mustard gas on WW1 and never enters politics, meaning that while there's several far right-wing groups causing troubles they never get to wield any serious power outside of working as a block. So for Germany there's no war as...

    AH Discussion: No unification of Italy and Germany, better or worse for Europe?

    We all know the history of the unifications of Germany and Italy. But to oversimplify... In Germany, after Napoleon, the age of Romanticism and Rise of German Nationalism, which culminated in the failed 1848 Revolution, Germany would be united through blood and iron. Under the prime minister...
  16. Weimar Germany: Wilhelm Marx wins in 1925- effects on the German foreign policy and rearmament?

    The permise is simple. Let's say that Hindenburg refuse to participate in 1925 German reichsprasident election and his main OTL contender, Wilhelm Marx beats a less popular candidate. OTL, it seems that Marx was comitted to guarding the Weimar republic and thus we may seen more restrictive...

  19. PC/AHC: Christian Socialist Germany

    In otl Europe, most Leftists tended to be secular if not atheist while most Christians tended to support right-wing policies, especially capitalism, making imagining what a fusion of the two would look like in Germany (or anywhere else at the time really) difficult.

    What if Germany instead of Russia is the first nation to go communist?

    In another post I talked about how I've been fascinated by the idea of an actual industrialized proletarian country being the first nation to establish communism for a bit now. Let's say that Fanny Kaplan succeeds in assassinating Lenin or the Russian Revolution simply never happens in the...
