    Parliament of UKGBI

    So assuming Ireland remains fully within the UK (by the least violent means) and a roughly similar global history, how would Parliament look if A) There's external devolution similar wrt Scotland, Wales, etc?

    AHC: UK Parliament outside London

    So while pondering the various acts of union and internal vs external devolution, I had a thought: How do we get a parliament for the UK that does not reside in London?

This was a key date in the planned Gunpowder Plot in 1605 to kill King James, destroy Parliament, kidnap Princess Elizabeth, convert her to Catholicism and place her on the throne of England in order to stop...

    Hungarian parliamentary politics in A-H during the late 19th century

    I'm very interested in the period. I want to research it further and speculate about developments for the sake of a timeline I've been slowly preparing. I intend this thread to be a broader discussion on the OTL direction of Hungarian parliamentary politics in the late 19th century (as a...

    Why exactly was Charles II of England restored?

    i have a question, mentioned above. How come there was support for Charles II's restoration to the throne? -England was dominated by protestants, and Charles I's atrocities towards protestants were still fresh on most of people's minds. Why propel his own son back to the throne? -i get that it...
  10. Relocating the British Monarchy to the Americas

    Perhaps recognizing the incredible potential of the Americas, and determining that it would eclipse the UK as it was, the monarchy declares a series of drastic changes. 1) The creation of the Kingdom of New England, the boundaries being the lands of the colonies 2) Movement of the Royal seat to...
