  1. Good King George - A Republican Britain and a Monarchist America
    Threadmarks: Introduction

    Good King George "The so-called Good King George III of Great Britain, Ireland and latterly America came to the throne with great ambition and a desire to rule, a trait of quiet absolutism that was quickly forced down as he grappled with his place as an increasingly constitutional monarch. But...

    AHC: Make Andorra have its own hereditary monarchy (no co-princes)

    The challenge is to make Andorra have its own monarchy that lasts (any PoD after its foundation in 805); it basically ends up a lot like OTL Monaco, being a tiny little statelet with its own monarchy, bordering but seperate from large countries, and probably being a tax paradise. There are no...

  5. Semi-successful 1848 Revolutions

    So, I was just thinking about an alternate outcome for the 1848 Revolutions and I was wondering how plausible the scenario is, potential PoDs, and and how it might affect the future of Europe. The results of the Revolutions are: Constitutional monarchy, either Legitimist or Orleanist, in...
  6. WI: Assassination of James I Steward failed

    James I Steward - if remember at all- is remember for a few things, but the most well known thing about him is that he was murdered on 21 February 1437 by a group of 30+ people led by sir Robert Graham. Despite his death, his bloodline remained on the throne, despite the fact that his son - also...
  7. AHC: restore as many native monarchies abolished by foreign invasion as possible after independence

    if you have not been paying attention, many countries have lost their native monarchies to imperialism (which is why I find it odd that monarchists defend imperialism, British invasions alone ended more native monarchies then radical revolutionary republicanism ever did; in most cases...

    WI: England Practice Sialic Law

    OTL, male preference was the defacto succession law of England and thus Britain. However, England inherited much of her early legal and political system from its Norman conquerors. What if, among this, was an official practice of sialic/male-only primogeniture? Obviously no Elizabeth I and thus...
  9. Modern Feudalism

    What might the culture of the modern world look like if feudalism was still the prevalent form of government? I'm talking about a society where the hereditary nobility and royalty still hold significant powers but the world's tech level is about the same as OTL. What would media and pop culture...

    Would it be possible for minor royals/nobles to become a leader of a political party?

    What I have in mind is a quasi-federal monarchy such as the German Empire, where you had the Emperor and many kings and dukes throughout Germany. Were they all banned from being active in the politics at all? And if they were, would it be possible, in Germany or any other country, for royals to...

    Simeon II goes for return of monarchy instead prime minister.

    in 2001, Simeon II won the elections with his party and become prime minister (a disaster). At the time people where really supporting him and i think he might have tried to bring back monarchy. SO what if he manages to make a call for a referendum, win and become again Tsar of Bulgaria? it's...

    Could the Spanish civil war bring back the monarchy immediately?

    The nationalists in Spain were a mix of right wing elements from fascists to conservatives, republicans and monarchists. Eventually who took power was Franco who ruled as a dictator until his death in 1975, and he was some kind of compromise since he was not as fascist as the falangists and...
  15. Possible candidates for a post-independence Chilean monarchy?

    I will keep this short. Let's say that, after Chile declares its independence from Spain, they decide to have a constitutional monarchy in order to preserve order and civility in the political scene and to avoid the failed republics and constant coups and civil wars that happen in other Latin...

    Earliest point for Non-Monarchical Governments to become the Norm

    Exactly as it says on the tin, what is the earliest possible point that a form of government, any form of government that cannot reasonably be described as monarchist in nature could become the normal(or at least most common) form of government. Now obviously monarchies can still exist, they...

    AHC: Strongest British Crown Possible?

    After the English Civil War, glorious revolution, and definitely after George III's mental health failed, the parliament was effectively the primary government of the empire. The crown certainly butted in occasionally but this is about the time 'crowned republic' starts showing up. So what I...
  20. Was Napoleon making himself a monarch a mistake?

    This is something I've heard people tossing around here and there. The basic idea is that Napoleon didn't make a very wise move in crowning himself as a monarch, at least in the sense about his family. They say that people respected and adored Napoleon himself, not his family, and that he would...
