  1. Interesting subjects to explore in a Napoleonic victory scenario

    I'm thinking of writing a timeline based around a napoleonic victory (original I know) and I'm thinking of interesting historical events to explore in such a timeline. As a WIP it's based on a France-wank, i.e success in Russia & Spain, as well as naval succes in the Mediterranean atleast, but...

    No American or French Revolutions: what happens with nationalism and the HRE?

    So, both the American Revolution and the French Revolution fail through a mixture of luck on the counterrevolutionary side and compromise; the British colonies in America get representation and, eventually, autonomy, and the French monarchy ends up reforming into a "constitutional" monarchy...

    AHQ: What distinguishes Slovenes from Croats?

    A question to this board’s balkanophiles... what exactly is the difference between Slovenes and Croats as distinct peoples? They seem to have similar ethno-cultural characteristics to me, when put in comparison. How and why exactly did Slovenia develop a particular identity as a South Slavic...

    The Greatest Game in the World - A Mildly Different 1848
    Threadmarks: Introduction

    March 1847 "Workingmen of all countries unite!” It was those simple words etched onto paper that sent Europe into revolt. While some historians argue that the social unrest and liberal desires in Europe were building since the ages of Napoleon, it is hard to argue that the release of Karl...

    Run Through the Šar-Plannina: A Springtime of the Vardar Basin Timeline

    After making so many jokes about Vardar Insurgents in other threads, I'm actually going to make a timeline about said Vardar Insurgents.

    Alternate Ideologies

    This is a thread for Alternate Ideologies (preferably those that appeared in the mid 1800s-early 1900s, so modern/industrial ones). The ideology could be an alternative/analogue to an existing ideology, an ideology that could have arisen at the time, an OTL ideology that could have gained more...

    AHC - different South Slavic unification

    As the title says, make the South Slavs unite differently from the OTL Yugoslav state that was centred in Serbia but attempted to appease the other ethnic groups. The borders do not need to be those of OTL Yugoslavia. Any South Slavic nation state that contains a few South Slavic ethnicities...
  8. Pan-Iranism Becomes Successful?

    Pan-Iranism was the ideology that the Iranian peoples (Persian, Pashtun, Baluch, Kurd, etc) should unite to form one nation. Could it been possible for the movement to take off successfully than it did OTL and be able to gain a following in the Iranian countries and territories? And if so...

    Could a Bonapartist state be built in the 20th century and survives until modern day?

    Ok, first of all, the state must really be openly Bonapartist, not of a similar ideology. And if you think I'm creating this thread because of KR, yeah, you are right But what can be used to define Bonapartism? First of all the state must claim to be "Bonapartistic", and now to the...

    Anaxios: A Discussion on a Modern Byzantium

    Let us imagine a modern Romanía. One that has endured the ages, yet commands not the world's stage. Let us imagine the Romans as a people stretching from Azerbaijan to Serbia. Let us imagine that much of history is similar to ours; the Turks, the crusades, the rise of Europe, the Renaissance...

    WI: Denmark joins the central powers and take baltic territories.

    On the XIII until the XVII centuries AD the Kingdom of Denmark controlled parts of the baltic, as it can be check on this map. Since Denmark became a very peacefull country after the war with Prussia I believe that a 19th century PoD is more realistic for the situation. Let's say that after the...

He engaged zulfiqar bhutto's pakistan in a proxy war causing dissent and sabotage in the border land. Daud khan saw Durand line as a false border (afghanistan doesn't actually recognise...

    WI: Perón does not die in power.

    After being removed in a coup in 1955, Perón returned to power after being elected in 1973 after 18 years of exile, however he did not ruled for long as his health was failing and he died in power in 1974. Let's say that he managed to keep ruling until the end of his mandate in 1978, how does...
  14. How to make everything go to hell after 1860-something?

    Okay, so I had an idea. Probably a bad idea, but still an idea. It's a timeline where everything starts going to hell around the mid-late 1860s, and we see massive-scale nationalist, anarchist, and socialist revolts of all different varieties almost worldwide by the early 20th century. Got any...

    It is possible for a surviving anglo saxon britain be considered germanic?

    I had this idea after finding this 19th century poster. Now, this is pan germanist propaganda, if you showed this to anyone in britain, the US, Canada and especially in Ireland, they most likely would laugh a lot. But to make this plausible, let's say that the norman invasions falls, and while...

    What would the right wing look like if it had not embraced nationalism.

    Since at least the 1930s, nationalism has been one of the core beliefs of right wing politics, perhaps the number one belief. It is hard to imagine what a modern right wing party would look like without at least a little racism. But what if the conservatives of the 1700s and 1800s decided that...

  18. Challenge: Plausible alternative to nationalism

    Ok guys what I'm asking you is to think about (or tell me about, if you already know) an alternative ideology on how a state should be formed. Obviously we already had ethno-linguistic nationalism and kingdoms big and small, can you think of another way to organize a state? Your POD can be...

    How would an independant Tyrol affect the relationship between Austria, Germany and Italy? Was there ever a chance that Tyrol might become independant? Would the Allies and Soviet Union have any intrest in a independant Tyrol? Would a independant Tyrol begin a new national identity project to...

    Victory of the USSR in the Cold War: National Bolshevism as the ideology of the New Right.

    I was visited by the following idea: what if in this world a number of ultra-nationalists can take advantage of various forms of national Bolshevism as a banner. I note that here it is rather a collective term than the name of a specific ideology.
