  1. Russian Manchuria: geopolitical consequences

    Let's say that Russia, around the 1850's-70's, grabs the whole Manchuria from the Qing, also guaranteeing Port-Arthur. Considering that the area was very lightly populated back then and is able to sustain a big population with its natural resources - today Chinese Manchuria has more than 100...

    The Manchurian Candidate: Asia and the Wider World

    After months upon months of planning, plotting, working and hiatuses of various length, I'm very pleased to be kicking off my first fully fleshed out timeline, The Manchurian Candidate: Asia and the Wider World. This thread will serve as the centerpoint of my timeline and the continuining...
  3. Manchuria under Industrialized Imperial China in 19th century

    I've mentioned something similar about consequences of industrialised China here back then. This is a scenario where Imperial China, whether under Qing or other dynasties ruled under Han Chinese, succeeds in industrialisation. What would Manchuria looked like in an industrialised Imperial China?

    WI: No (or less) Han Chinese immigration into Manchuria?

    IOTL, in the 19th century, droves of Han Chinese started pouring into Manchuria, violating the Qind Dynasty's edicts in regards to settlement and thus forcing them to be revised. The region then saw a boom in population and industry, and is now a quite developed and majority-Han part of China...
  5. WI Russia conquers the Manchu and all land north of the Wall?

    What if during Russia's siberian expansion they conquer the Manchu and the land north of the wall before the Manchu conquer China? I guess the Ming would be dealing with their own chaos and decline so the Manchus are on their own but it also means the Ming would get replaced by a non Manchu...
  6. Best case scenario for 19th century Qing Dynasty

    Like the title says, what would be the best case scenario for the Qing Dynasty in the 19th century? China under the times of Early Qing were at the most powerful at their zenith under Kangxi, Yongzheng and Qianlong. After Qianlong, Qing China is no longer the great empire it once used to be and...
  7. AHC/WI: Ming conquest of Manchuria

    What happens if the Ming decided to conquer the region of Manchuria, rather than vassalize the tribes there? How will this impact on China and perhaps Asia?

    WIP - The Tiger and the Magpie - A Korean Manchuria TL

    This is my first TL. Basically, the idea is that Korea controls large parts of southern Manchuria and "outer Manchuria" (Primorsky Krai & Sakhalin). The Korean kingdoms of Goguryeo and Balhae and some proto-Korean kingdoms controlled the region for about 2000 years before the Khitan conquest in...
  9. Can Japan hold Manchuria without Sino-Japanese War?

    Suppose that Japan stopped short in Manchuria. Marco Polo Bridge Incident or the equivalent never happened, Japan become less expansionist (might be due to oil discovery in Manchuria). Eventually Chiang will finish his business with the communist and would be pressured to deal with Japan. In...
  10. Japan's nuclear ace

    This might need to go in ASB, so let me know if you think that's the case. What if the Japanese had a much more organized, well-funded, and successful atomic weapons program, and it was headquartered in Manchuria rather than Japan proper. Let's also say that the program progresses enough to...

    WI: No Central Plains War?

    In 1930, a group of Northwest-based warlords under Yan Xishan and Feng Yuxiang fought one of China's most destructive civil wars in the Republican Era against Chiang Kaishek. Despite early successes, Northwestern forces quickly disintegrated when Zhang Xueliang's Fengtian Clique intervened on...

    AXIS VICTORIOUS!!!! What happens to Pu Yi, and Manchukuo?

    So in an Axis victory, what would be the fate of Pu Yi, and Manchukuo. I was always thinking Pu Yi would have the ambition after the Japanese victory to try to unify China under the Qing, as a sort of Qing restoration. that's just my opinion. But in an Axis victory, what do you think would...
  15. WI: different Sino-Russian border

    OTL, the Sino-Russian border goes from the Mongolian-Russian-Chinese tripoint along the Argun river, stops at the confluence of the Ussuri river, then runs south along the Ussuri until it reaches the Tumen river. This border was determined by a series of Sino-Russian border agreements throughout...

    Does this surviving Manchurian empire looks accurate?

    It has been taken from the Fatherland mod for Darkest hour, while it is a game, I think you will be interested. Here their description: When the honorable Kwantung Army crossed the Yalu in 1931, no one would have thought that the entire future of Japan would rest in these provinces. In these...

    After a victory in the Chinese Civil War, could the KMT capture Manchuria?

    So, suppose that the KMT manages to defeat the CCP early in the Chinese Civil War before much trouble can happen, and march on Manchuria. What happens next? Can the nationalists keep Manchuria or will the USSR intervene? The soviets could prop up a friendly communist regime in a region that was...

    Let's say that by some reason Manchukuo survives until modern day, probably still as a japanese puppet, how is not important for this scenario In this case how Manchukuo would look like today? And the Manchu culture and language? The number of manchu speakers were declining rapidly since the...
