    A Voyage Never Taken or A More Glorious Marriage "On the Second Decade of the Sixteenth Century butterflies would flutter their wings and fly." Note I removed certain elements from the timeline, I felt too overwhelmed by butterflies when I was writing and there looks to be plot holes so I...
  2. Stricter canonical rulings on marriage

    As we all know, the (Catholic) Church had a very large definition of the degree of kinship in which marriages were prohibited. However, the bishops and afterwards could always grant dispensation from these interdiction, leading to some genetic problems when kings decided to keep it up in the...
  3. WI: Felipe II and Anna of Austria’s Second Son

  5. AHC/WI: More Habsburg-Romanov Matches

    Despite being (effectively) the oldest and most prestigious dynasty in Europe, the Habsburgs had only one marriage alliance with the Romanovs of Russia. Now I can fully understand the reasons why; first both dynasties were very devote and any bride would be expected to convert to her new...

    WI: Different Marry Happy Austria

    All the Habsburgs of OTL descend from Ernst I ‘der Eiserne’, Archduke of Austria and his second marriage to Cymburgis of Masovia (who passed the genes for what later became the Habsburg lip and prognathism into the family). However, Ernst had two older brothers (discounting the Albertine line)...
  7. WI Maximilian I, King of Hungary in 1490?

    So what do you think, what could possibly happen, if Emperor Maximilian is elected as King of Hungary? For POD, let's say he marries Beatrix of Aragonia, the widow of Matthias and makes a compromise with Matthias's bastard son, John Corvinus, who would become the ban of several Southern...

    Christian Victory in Long Turkish War?

    As Habsburgists on this site are aware, there was a war fought from 1593 to 1606 in Hungary between Austria and her allies (mostly consisting of the Dacian Principalities), and the Ottoman Empire. It was very indecisive despite the costliness of the war for both sides, but what I am wondering is...

  10. When In Doubt, Add More Habsburgs

    While I was digging around for the tweaks to the Angevin heirs in the 15th century, I came across some interesting tidbits, namely that by the time Maximilian I became Holy Roman Emperor he was sort of the last Habsburg standing with the exception of his son and daughter. After some further...

    AHC: Non-Habsburg Austria

    So, the challenge here is to give the Austrian (or austro-hungarian if you want) throne to a non-Habsburger, with a PoD after 1400. It doesn't matter the shape of the empire, as long as its capital is centered around the austrian region. The king can be related to the Habsburg dynasty, but is...

    WI: Edward Longshanks dies in 1259, brother against brother, Plantagenet Germany?

    This is basically a convoluted attempt to make the Plantagenets a permanent fixture in Germany, but here goes: Henry III and Prince Edward (the future Edward I Longshanks, Malleus Scotorum, etc.) were on extremely bad terms by the end of 1259, with Edward taking the side of barons and acting...

    WI: The Ottoman Empire attacks Vienna during the Thirty Years' War

    I find it strange that they didn´t. How would the enemies of the Habsburgs have reacted? On the one hand they hated the Habsburgs, on the other hand they hardly would have wanted an even more powerful Ottoman Empire.

  16. WI: Better luck for the earlier Habsburgs

    Yeah, during the 13th century the Habsburgs had a "meteoric" rising, from irrelevant Swabian counts to German kings and Dukes of Austria and Styria. Let's upgrade it to "stellar". What if King Albert I's son Rudolf had survived and defeat Henry of Carinthia's partisans and becoming sole King of...
