  1. Swedish Atlantic Coast | Sweden holds Trøndelag and Northern Norway instead of Scania

    It always bothers me how Norway almost pulls a Chile with Sweden... As I studied more about the Swedish possessions in the Baltic, I realized that they briefly dominated Trøndelag, essentially dividing Norway into two segments (although the northern part was sparsely populated). Also this thread...

    Robert F. Scott reaches the South Pole first?

    This is something I always wondered about, during the race to the South Pole, Roald Amundsen was the first to reach the famed geographical point. But what if his rival Robert F. Scott reached it first? How would he be able to do it? And what would it mean for British prestige?
  3. Finnish war of 1808-1809 results in a status quo ante bellum, what happens to Scandinavia at Vienna?

    In a scenario where no (or only very minor) Swedish territorial occur as a result of Russia's invasion of Swedish Finland and Bernadotte isn't made crown prince of Sweden but the Napoleonic Wars as a whole afterwards follow a broadly similar pattern with similar Swedish levels of involvement in...
  4. AHC: Make Sweden part of Russia and increase German/Scandinavian immigration to Russia

    I've been thinking lately how to wank Russia, and, with the help of the threads like Greater Volga German population and Quinoa introduction in Europe, I think I've figured it out. First of all, food. Here's map of where Russia could grow Quinoa (my own estimation): With this amazing crop...
  5. Potential PODs for an independent Norway created during the Congress of Vienna

    What are some potential points of divergance for an independent Norway to be created during the Congress of Vienna? Would it be viable? How would such a thing look in practice?
  6. Denmark-Norway remains intact + Sweden keeps Finland, what happens to scandinavism?

    Assuming that both Denmark-Norway remains intact and Finland stays a part of Sweden, with a point of divergence in sometime close to the Napoleonic wars, what would become of scandinavism? It had already started to some small degree during the late 1700s (for example during Gustav IIIs visit to...
  7. Bouvet Island (in South Atlantic close to Antarctica) not annexed by Norway in 1927

    In OTL, Bouvet Island was annexed by the Norwegians at the end of 1927 in the wake of the Norvegia expedition, which was the first to make an extended stay on the island. But until then, it was the British who had possessed that island, ever since George Norris (the captain of a whaling...
  8. Sweden decisively wins the Battle of Langnes

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Langnes The Battle of Langnes was the last battle of the Norway swedish war of 1814. The battle ended in a stalemate with the Norwegian army able to retreat in good order across the Langnes River. This showed that the war was going to go on far longer...
  9. Swedish involvement in the second danish-prussian war?

    In the real world despite a promise of Swedish help from the king of Sweden and Norway, Denmark fought alone. In an alternate world, what would fulfilling the promise look like? what would it take for the Swedish government to agree to help Denmark? What would opinions be like in Norway? (who...

    For I am the master of all things! - A more succesful Eric of Pomerania

    This is a timeline about Eric VII of Denmark, Norway and Sweden, better known as Eric of Pomerania. Often considered the man who ruined the Kalmar Union which his adopted mother created, Eric is generally seen as a very unsuccesful King, but he is also a very important one. Some historians...
  11. Plausibility and effects of an early Norwegian rediscovery of Vinland?

    A lot of the timelines and discussion about the Norse exploration of North America I've seen tend to focus on the initial discoveries and settlements, and wether or not it would be feasible for them to survive on their own. I think that makes a lot of sense narratively, but lately I've instead...

    WI: Sweden-Norway gets the Congo instead of Belgium

    I'm not sure if this is true or not, but apparently, the United Kingdoms of Sweden and Norway was the next country to get the Congo had Belgium not gotten it. Let's say that in an alternate timeline that Belgium's claim to the Congo is declined at the Berlin Conference by the other countries...

    Would Scandinavia go Protestant if Christian II of Denmark stayed on the throne?

    I'm writing a timeline where Christian II of Denmark isn't deposed from his position as King of Denmark, Norway and Sweden, due to him not carrying out the Stockholm Bloodbath. At first I was initially thinking that it wouldn't have a big effect on the course of The Reformation in Scandinavia...

  15. Sweden loses the War of Liberation?

    The Swedish War of Liberation was the conflict that led to the rise of the House of Vasa in Sweden and ended the Kalmar Union for good. In spite of its ultimately victorious conclusion, however, the war began as a small peasant uprising, and even after it grew in size it took the rebels two...
  16. A Danish victory at Brunkeberg?

    The Battle of Brunkeberg was a crushing setback for Denmark and the Kalmar Union, since it secured Sweden's independence from Copenhagen for the next few decades. Although John and Christian II did control the kingdom later, they only did so for a brief amount of time before it broke away for...
  17. Free northern Norway during ww2

    During the battle of Narvik it looked like the Germans were going to be defeated however the Allies decided to withdraw due to the events in France. The Norwegian army after the Allies had evacuated then capitulated. What if the Allies never withdrew and the Germans lost the battle of Narvik...
  18. WI: Eric of Pomerania succeeds in getting Bogislav nominated as his heir

    In OTL, the childless Kalmar Union king Eric of Pomerania tried unsuccessfully for years to get his paternal first cousin (Bogislav IX, duke of Pomerania) to be named his universal heir in Denmark, Norway, and Sweden. This was stymied when the Danish estates rejected Bogislav in 1436 and brought...
  19. Rise of the United Kingdom of Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland (1836-1906)

    With the fall of the Swedish Empire at the beginning of the 18th Century, Sweden had become a lesser player in European affairs, after the end of the Great Northern War, and the death of King Charles XII. They would play a minor role in the Napoleonic Wars, switching sides alongside Russia...

    I've again started to look to construct a scenario in which Haakon VI of Norway marries Elizabeth of Holstein instead of the future Margaret I of Denmark. I'm trying to research what other potential husband she could have. Margaret was born in 1353 for an age assessment. With a...
