    WI/AHC: Viceroyalty of Rio Grande

    What if, between the 16th Century to 18th Century, Viceroyalty of New Spain was split in two? The Viceroyalty of New Spain in the South, with it's capital at Mexico City, and the Viceroyalty of Rio Grande, with it's capital in Monterrey. (Map is inaccurate, a bit late 1821, but this is the...
  2. Mexican backed Black South

    Say that just after winning the civil war (only requirement on how being whatever was realistically possible), the CSA forgets that they just barely won and almost immediately invades Mexico. Despite a surprisingly successful initial blitzkrieg, emperor Maximilian is overthrown in a republican...
  3. WI: Agustín de Iturbide declares himself president instead of emperor?

    So he does that instead of declaring an Empire and became the President defacto dictator of Mexico. Effects? Basically it seems that many is not happy on what he did IOTL that he declared an Empire. ITTL he declared the Republic of Mexico, and declare himself President. How would it affect...
  4. WI Idea of Reconquista becomes deeply entrenched in Mexico fuelling a Major Long-lasting Conflict with the United States a la Ireland, Palestine etc ?

    OTL Mexico obtained independence in 1821, the government characterized by instability leaving it ill-prepared for a major international conflict when war broke out with the U.S. in 1846 [Wikipedia]. The Mexican-American War of 1846 lead to the loss of Texas, California and New Mexico, thus...
  5. AHC: With a POD after the Mexican-American War, have Mexico develop to the same level as Canada and the US

    Here are some rules to add clarification to the challenge: The POD may occur at any point following the end of the Mexican-American War. By the modern-day Mexican territory must be more or less identical to that of OTL -- so no retaking of Central America or the Northern territories lost to the...
  6. WI: Texas Rebellion against Mexico soundly defeated, alternate path for Texas- and more

    This is a WI but it is also about an idea for a TL that I had, that I wanted to work out some of the more obvious butterflies as a result of it. The basic idea is this: in OTL, Texas was the destination for considerable amounts of immigrants from Central Europe, as early as 1840. In any TL...
  7. Mexico reforms in the 1970s?

    So I've made some research on prominent Mexican politicians during the 1960-70s, the most authoritarian years of PRI's perfect dictatorship, mostly because I was inspired by @Roberto El Rey's excellent TL. I eventually stumbled upon the name of Carlos Alberto Madrazo Becerra, who was governor of...

    AHC: French California

    in the period surrounding the American Revolution, the new world colonial empires largely collapsed. The French had lost it prior to the revolution, the Portuguese and Spanish destroyed by napoleon, and Russia was barely a player in the arena. Only the British remained, and even they struggled...

    American Civil War in 1996?

    If Canada were to have a Civil War after the Independence of Quebec, what would a spillover look like? And a Second American Civil War? Ignore this maybe being not possible, I’m looking for the effects.
  10. AHC: Reverse the fates of Canada and Mexico

    Your challenge is to have a prosperous, stable Mexico and a conflicted, troubled Canada. Bonus points if the POD is after June 1, 1867.

    Effects of Spain keeping Mexico?

    Hypothetically, What if the Mexican War for independence, never happened? Let’s say, New Spain doesn’t revolt, and remains loyal to Spain, despite the troubling times in Spain itself, and the revolutions in South America? How would Spain keeping Mexico effect the American Expansion? Could New...

    Mexico Does Not Lose Territory

    Various Mexican provinces (Texas; for example) seceded due to the centralist regime inposed by Santa Anna. How could be avoided the creation of the centralist regime? Would the Mexican-American War still happen? If it still happened, how could Mexico win the war and not lose it’s territories to...
  13. DBWI: Mexico becomes a republic

    The Old World is commonly thought of as a place of monarchies, and the New a place of republics. While this is generally true, there are exceptions in both cases. One of these is the Mexican Empire. What if Mexico had ended up becoming a republic?
  14. If mexico was not invaded by France during the American civil war; would it have invaded America to reconquer it's territory?

    Would mexico try to reconquer it's territory from the United States during the civil war; if it never got invaded by France?
  15. what are the best ways on how to achieve a better-off Mexico?

    There are a multiple ways in which Mexico, which would have had the similar economic potential early in the mid-19th century to early 20th century as Japan, South Korea, Australia, US and Canada, did could have infinitely become better off than the mess it has become in the past 100-plus years...

    Mormons in Mexico

    So, let us assume that Mexico manages to pull a surprise victory, or something occurs in Washington which makes the idea of going to war with Mexico undesirable, point is Mexico keeps its land, case closed. Now let's also assume that Mormon history up to this point had remained the same, and the...

    Threadmarks: A Homecoming

    The loudspeaker broadcast the final boarding call for the ferry. I had been smoking a cigarette and staring out across the harbour, looking at nothing in particular but taking in the sunshine on a nearly cloudless day. The announcement broke my focus, so I grabbed my backpack off the dock, mate...
  18. Álvaro Obregón wasn't assassinated in 1928?

    Álvaro Obregón was one of the Mexican Revolution's most famous generals, being the one who crushed Pancho Villa's forces at the decisive Battle of Celaya. Because of that, he was elected president of Mexico in 1920, with his term expiring four years later, after which he was succeeded by his...
  19. DBAHC: More successful Canada, less successful Mexico

    Canada and Mexico are, in many ways, a study in contrasts. The former is infamous for seemingly being a "perpetual developing country", whereas the latter is known as an overall quite successful country despite a rough start (it does have some lingering issues, but no country is perfect). Your...

    Assuming Early Colonization: How Far South Could You Sail From Carolina In 1495?

    So I'm working on my timeline, The Death of Ferdinand, and in it, Charles VIII hired Columbus instead of Castile (under Joanna, Isabella's rival claimant), and he has established a small settlement in Carolina, I'm thinking near the border of them. Now, they've found some small bits of quartz...
