    WI: Italy Joined The Entente Instead Of The Triple Alliance/Joined The Entente Early

    italy's joining of the triple alliance with AH and Germany is a bit of an oddity when one considers their relationship with Austria was always... less than pleasant due to Italian adriatic claims. Now, even against France they had some desires (i believe tunis and some minor claims against the...

    AHCWI: Milanese Italy

    Milan is a wealthy, industrial part of Italy that was powerful during the Renaissance. However, with the rise of the hapsburgs, it fell into the spaniosh branch before being ceded to the Austrians and then getting Napoleoned (which I promise is a very real technical term for "got conquered by an...

  6. Alternate Italian Unification Discussion Thread

    Hi everyone! I have seen some threads popping up recently, regarding alternate Italian unification, or non-unification scenarios. Since this is the topic that interests me the most, I thought it was worth it to try and make a comprehensive discussion thread on the topic. Should you choose to...
  7. First Italian War of Independence

    During the Revolutions of 1848, Italian patriots rose up across Lombardy-Venetia in order to expel the Austrians from Italy and were joined by Piedmontese and Tuscan troops along with many volounteers but their efforts were ultimately in vain and by 1849 Austrian rule had been restored and the...

    Butterfly Badoglio

    Hi, as an Italian i've never understood why that a...hole was always in charge during our hardest hour... A more competent military commander would have partially avoided Caporetto disaster (yeah the main austro-german thrust could have failed if the guy wasn't a batshit moron) since our guy...

    Threadmarks: The Point Of Divergences : A Discussion

    One thing that I wonder is why lots of threads discuss just one POD instead of multiples. I for my timeline want to do multiples and want to know your opinions. Canada actually owns the Carribbean and Falklands when a jokes gets serious and taken to parliament and passes (barely) Rhodesia joins...
  12. AHC: The Fertile Plan Enacted & A Better Cassibile Armistice

    Your challenge is for the Fertile Plan to be enacted (Jordan,Syria,Lebanon and Iraq ) to be united then to have an Italy that changes sides but that it can have better terms with the Allies. For the first I think a British ship that wasn't sunk by Vichy OTL could instead be actually sunk (I...
  13. Challenge: Papal States Annexed By Spain

    As soon as Spain had control over southern Italy around the early 16th century could they somehow annex the Papal States too? Assuming the Sack of Rome that happened at that same century occurred could Spain then decide to annex the Papal States in order to ensure a loyal papacy and also to...

    A Better Thought out Sixtus Affair?

    So it's seems that i have caught the Habsburg bug for i seem to be reading on them too much for my own sake. Alright, otl, the Sixtus affair was an attempt by Karl I to get peace in March - May 1917. It failed. Utterly. Partly because the foreign minister thought it was good to talk badly...

  17. AHC: Earlier Kingdom of Italy, run by the Habsburg

    I have sometimes wondered if it was possible to have the Habsburg create a functioning, autonomous Kingdom of Italy, with one of their collateral lines picked to run. It should be possible, I guess, from the 1700s, when so many of the minor states in Italy came under their sway. I guess the...
