    Basically, assume John I Zapolya is successful in establishing control over the entire Hungarian kingdom by 1530. What would his government look like in terms of diplomacy, religion, etc.? Would he marry someone else ITTL? How cordial would relations with the Ottomans be? What about the spread...

    WI: Ajtony's state endures?

    Ajtony or Ahtum was a powerful warlord of debated ethnic origin that for a time managed to carve out a semi-independent state from the Kingdom of Hungary around the very beginning of the 11th century. He established his rule over the modern Banat (Temeswar) region, controlling a good part of...
  4. Challenge: name an airplane uglier than the Lloyd Luftkreuzer

    Challenge: name an airplane uglier than the Lloyd 40.08 Luftkreuzer bomber. Only a single prototype was built in Austria-Hungary during 1916, but it never flew! Instead, it tipped over on its nose during taxi-tests revealing a centre-of-gravity that was way too high and too far forward. Despite...
  5. AHC: "Dances with Deer", a revolution in pre-Christian European Culture cinema

    Some time ago, I remember reading a tentative script about an amateur Hungarian movie taking place around the year 1000 AD (when Hungary was Christianized), but there was still a lot of infighting in the country about who gets to rule it. The screenplay actually had the title "Dances with Deer"...

    Most likely time for a Peaceful Dissolution of Austria-Hungary?

    So I'm thinking about this idea I had. Basically, Austria strongarming colonial endeavours causes Hungary and Croatia-Slavonia to secede, ending Austria-Hungary. An Austria that still controls South Tyrol and Trentino, Czechia, Slovakia and Istria. The Kingdom of Hungary secedes whole, meaning...
  7. WI: Matthias Corvinus and George of Podebrady remained allies

    Czech king George of Podebraby was initially protector and ally of young Matthias, who also married his daughtet Catherine. Although over time ties with Podebrad, who was excommunicated by Pope as heretic, were more and more problematic for Matthias, who eventually turned against his former...

    Hungary disintegrates in the 14th century?

    Was it ever possible for the Kingdom of Hungary to de facto disintegrate around the 14th century, that is, in the aftermath of the extinction of the main line of the Arpad dynasty? IOTL, after the death of Andrew III, the throne was contested between multiple pretenders, chiefly the Premyslid...

    Change happens in 1410. William, son of Antoine of Brabant and Elizabeth of Luxembourg, survives, while his cousin Elizabeth, daughter of Sigismund of Luxembourg and Barbara of Cili, dies.

    What if the Austrian Empire collapsed?

    During the 1848 Revolutions in the Austrian Empire by the Hungarians their bid for independence was brutally crushed by the Russian Empire. However, what if this never occurred. I suppose this could go two ways: 1. The Russian simply ignore the revolt altogether. 2. The Russians move their army...
  11. AHC: Lutheran Hungary

    Your challenge is to have the majority of Hungary be Lutheran by the year 1600.
  12. AHC/WI Jules Verne's "Two Years Vacation" / "Adrift in the Pacific" was more popular in the West

    Growing up in Hungary, this was my favorite work from Jules Verne, resonating well with experiencing occasional hardships in countryside life in Central Europe, and in spite of this, remaining optimistic, resourceful, and co-operative while trusting God. The novel is still an obligatory reading...
  13. WI: Slavic-speaking Hungary

    In OTL, Bulgarians are descended from the Bulgars, a people of Turkic origins who gradually adopted a South Slavic language, and nowadays consider themselves Slavs. What if something similar happened in Hungary too around 1000 AD, and nowadays people in Hungary speak a Slavic language that is...
  14. DBWI: No expulsion of Hungarians after WW2

    After WW2 Hungarians were ethnically cleansed from Yugoslavia, Romania and Czechoslovakia just like the Germans were from central and Eastern Europe. Although controversial today at the time it was seen as a fair punishment for Hungary’s alliance with Nazi Germany. What if they had not been...

    [ONGOING] What REALLY would have happened if the Ottomans won the siege of Vienna 1529

    Now I know what most of you are thinking. You've probably seen this scenario/POD dozens of times on this forum. But the reason why I think it deserves a better assessment is that most of the time the answers to this generally misunderstand the aims and state which the Ottoman Empire was in...
  16. A Hungary divided

    This is a TL I've been working on, not sure how plausible it is, or if it will be a coherent storyline, or just a one-shot peppered with snippets of daily life. In this TL, the Soviet Union didn't collapse, and the 1989 Revolutions of Eastern Europe were much more radical and violent, not just...
  17. Anne of Foix-Candale lives longer

    Anne de Foix, wife of Vladislaus II of Bohemia and Hungary, died in 1506 after giving birth prematurely to her only son Louis (who as result was retarded). Doctors, who ordered bloodletting to reduce fever also greatly contributed to her death. Say that ATL Louis is born normally and Anne...
