    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...

This makes Iceland the...

    DBWI: What if No Second Napoleonic Wars

    As we all know the reign of Napoleon II is seen by most historians as the one of the most unexpected and pivotal moments in history. After the final defeat of Napoleon I at Leipzig or "The Battle of Nations" as the Coalition powers dubbed it, the French Empire quickly fell apart with France...

    AHC: Poland survives partitions

    How can Poland survive partitions? They don't need to be very big, but just surviving somewhere while still calling themselves Poland. I was thinking maybe a bigger Free City of Krakow being an Austrian puppet state, but I'm not sure if Prussia/Russia would allow it and if Austria would allow it...

    Right now Europe is home to 22 Monarchies, some were restored after WW2 and others after the fall of the Iron Curtain. Could Europe become more republicans with most of them disappearing?

    How much different History of England would be, if Charles I Stuart , the rightful king of England, after his defeat in English Civil War instead of beign imprisoned and eventually executed for treason, was somehow able to escape to the France like other members of his family? He still had lost...

    Princess Toria and King Carlos I of Portugal Marry

    I've been reading about the importance of Britain's support for the maintenance of the Portuguese monarchy, and I wonder what could have happened if Princess Victoria of Wales married King Charles I of Portugal? In the 1880s, Carlos' mother wanted her son to marry Toria, Maria Valeria of...

    DBWI: What do you think of the second Bismarck?

    First of all, I must say that Herr Hugenberg is the closest a human being can come to a character of the Tin Tin stories by Hergé. Well, Alfred von Hugenberg was the german chancellor from 1933 until his death in 1946, and remains a usually positively figure who did some very negative points...

    DBWI: Nigeria becomes a Republic instead of a Monarchy?

    I got another e-mail from a Nigerian prince, once again asking for my help in smuggling his wealth out of the country before the revolutionaries get to it. This got me thinking: what if Nigeria had become a republic instead of a monarchy upon gaining independence from Britain? How would the...
  14. Other possible Greek monarchs?

    Other than Otto I, who could have been King of Greece? I think maybe Alexander Mavrocoradtos, or Alexander and Demetrius Ypsilantis in the earlier years, and after Otto I maybe Ernest of Leiningen, Ernest II of Saxe-Coburg Gotha, Henri of Orléans, or maybe Alfred of Saxe-Coburg Gotha (although...

    AHC: A Neo-Absolutist British Monarchy

    With a pod from the reign of King George III who was a very active monarch till around the 1890's British Empire how can the Crown retake power from Parliament and unofficially sideline the parliament into a rubber stamp like how the French Kings (Louis XIV) did it and Augustus sidelining the...
  16. DBWI: What if the Tsar of Russia was overthrown?

    It's a historic event that is basically legend at this point. The Russian royal family was hated, and the Tsar hated his job, and his family carried a genetic disease that could destroy their whole lineage. However, in 1905, during his sleep, he had a vision of Jesus, who said that he needed to...

    One thing not a lot of people know is that the French Third Republic was almost replaced by a second restoration of the Kingdom of France. When Napoleon III was removed from power as a result of the Franco-Prussian War, France needed a new government, and since monarchists held the majority in...

    So what would be a consequence had the Conservatives Mexican had won in the Reform War? And what would be the consequences of their victory? Would this in any way affect France's intervention of Mexico? Blue is conservative, Red is Liberals and white is Baja California being Baja California.

    With a 1900, can the Stuart (re)take the british throne?

    Before anyone asks, yes I mean the the Maria Herzog von Bayern who claim to be the real sucessors of the Stuart throne, that is why I used (re)take, because the original stuart cannot retake the throne as their direct lineage died, but since they have some connection the Maria Herzog could...
  20. 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...
