    AHC: Crown Prince Reza Pahlavi deposes Mohammad Reza Shah in a palace coup

    Hi again. (did I do that AHC thing right?) So about 3 weeks ago or so I posted my first thread about Iran and its Monarchy, that one was about WI. the Qajars had overthrown the Pahlavis in an alternate Iranian revolution, the replies I got were.. interesting, not really what I expected but the...
  2. AHC: Monarchism + Communism

    Is there way to make a political system which combines elements of Absolute Monarchy and Communism start getting popular in the 19th century or early 20th century, and become dominant over many large countries, and not just have modern, somewhat different, isolated examples like North Korea...
  3. DBPC: Most countries republics?

    One thing I find very interesting is the fact that the predominance of monarchism has lasted so long. Granted, monarchs generally don't enjoy the kind of power they had in past centuries, but the monarchy remains the most common type of government by far. How plausible is it for most countries...
  4. Potential Central American Monarchs?

    I'm currently working on a scenario revolving around a (somehow) monarchist Nicaragua, with monarchy being established some time in the mid- to late 1800s. Are there any estranged or ambitious nobles or dukes in Europe that would be willing to accept an invitation to rule any Central American...
  5. 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...

    AHC: Successful King Charles X of France

    This is Charles X the last true King of France (The usurper Louis-Philippe doesn't count). Assuming he had been watching the Revolutions and political developments in nations like Austria, Prussia, and Russia more closely and had kept his conservatism and Neo-Absolute vision of government, what...

    DBWI- Constitutional Monarchies weren't the norm?

    Recently, the passing of the King of France has restarted talks by some within the country to move towards the idea of France becoming a Republic and ditching the monarchy, which seems to have been gaining steam slowly over the last two decades due to scandals within the Royal Family and some of...
  8. Effect of more surviving monarchies on social media, pop culture

    I follow a few of the Habsburg family members on twitter, and I just realized how strange that phrase sounds in historical perspective. Eduard von Habsburg (@EduardHabsburg), the grandson of Austro-Hungarian Emperor Franz Joseph, is the Hungarian Ambassador to the Holy See. Most of the account...
  9. AHC: Create a large left-wing (constitutional) monarchist movement in a country

    Okay, so monarchism is a philosophy that has mostly died out (although there are still a few remaining monarchies where the monarch still has some actual power and a few forums, such as r/monarchism, where people still advocate for a return to monarchy). Most monarchist movements are rather...

    WI: Hitler was a Monarchist ?

    I know these "What if Hitler was "x" Ideology" questions are cliché. But I would like to know: What if Hitler was a Hohenzollern supporter that saw the abdication of the Kaiser as the reason for the defeat in the "Great War "? What if he saw the Social-Democrats, communists, Jews, Bankers, and...
  11. "Three Emperors' League" monarchist bloc established before WWI

    What if the German Empire, the Austro-Hungarian Empire, and the Russian Empire formed a stable alliance before WW1? Reforming the League of Three Emperors, they come to an agreement on the Balkans, Baltic, and Black Sea, redirecting their ambitions outward at the expense of Romania, Serbia, the...

    A sketch of a monarchist germany scenario I have.

    First of all, a disclaimer: While I have some narrative skills, sadly my focus on history is the twenty century brazilian history, and so I do not know enought of weimar and early third reich politics of Germany to pull off this sceario. I would love to see it realized and I would cooperate with...
  13. PODs and Candidates for an American Monarchy

    A question that has been asked many times before here: how do you end up with a USA or equivalent being a monarchy rather than a republic? How far back do you need to change events, and who are the candidates? The requirement here is for a hereditary monarchy rather than an elective one, so a...

    WI Monarchist East

    What if the former East Germany potentially in spite of Communism and the memory of Weimar became a largely pro-Monarchist society. How would this effect German politics post-unification? Would this new regional mainstream remain regional or perhaps begin to spark something like a Royalist...

    The Co-Prosperity Sphere
    Threadmarks: Chapter 1: The Tokyo Conference

    Chapter 1: The Tokyo Conference: The Japanese Empire felt betrayed ever since the Nine-Power Treaty of 1922, that was affirming the sovereignty and territorial integrity of China and the Treaty for the Limitation and Reduction of Naval Armament of 1930, so that it later would not be a part of...

    AHC reactionary Karl Marx

    On the wave of the communist Hitler, Socialist Mussolini and Social Democrat Mosley scenario's I came with a idea: What if Karl Marx was a "reactionary"? Since this term is to ample, in this certain case reactionary means someones that strongly wants the restoration of the old (pre napoleonic)...

    Threadmarks: Serbian War

    Hello everyone! I've decided to start my TL! The POD is in 1903, The May overthrow fails to kill King Alexander I of Serbia. Stuff ensues. Here goes nothing! Excerpt from London times, 1st June 1903: SERBIA EMBROILED IN CIVIL WAR! Austria-Hungary Prepares Intervention! Ladies and Gentlemen...
  18. A hindu princess for Prince Edward

    Point of divergence: After the death of Adelaide Dubus, Edward does not encounter his long-time mistress madame de Saint-Laurent. He still gets posted to Canada and carries on more-or-less as per OTL there and might have a string of mistresses, but not any one he forms any long-term bond with...

    Threadmarks: Prologue

    Note: This is my first attempt at writing a TL. Please don't be too harsh. Constructive criticism and historical inaccuracy correction are very much appreciated. Expect an update about once a week. Now on to the story! :cool: The Holy Russian Empire "What they cannot understand is that we are...
  20. Effects of no Welf-Hohenzollern reconciliation?

    After losing Hanover to Prussia, George V stuck to his claim and stayed largely in Austria and Great Britain, even paying for a small private army of loyalists. His son, Ernest Augustus initially followed the same line, but later reconciled with the Hohenzollerns when his son was offered a...
