  7. AHC: Prevent Ferdinand Marcos from being re-elected in 1969

    The 1969 Philippine presidential election is known to be the one of the dirtiest elections in Philippine history, with alleged cases of vote-buying, and Ferdinand Marcos having spent 50,000,000 Philippine Pesos for his campaign (most of which were unloaded in Cebu).

    The Barito of Madagascar settle in the Philippines instead of Madagascar

    The Barito of Madagascar settle in the Philippines instead of Madagascar, I don't think it would really have an impact on the history of the Philippines although Madagascar would remain uninhabited.

    International Impacts of the Spanish not discovering and conquering the Philippines

    Since I am doing a timeline where the Spanish don't colonize and discover the Philippines, it will be quite obvious that there will be the impact of the Spanish not conquering in the territory and one of that is that Luzon would be divided into a state ruled by Bruneian dynasty and a state ruled...

    What if the U.S. military never withdrew from the Philippines in 1992?

    This may somehow border into current politics so please keep it to a minimum. In OTL September 1991, the Philippine Senate voted not to renew the lease of the U.S. military bases in the archipelago. This was following the Mount Pinatubo eruption in June of that year in which Clark and Subic...

    DBWI: Magellan does not land in Mollucas and in the Bruneian Empire

    I remember some people in Alternate History boards are thinking of Magellan not landing in Maluku in 1521 and instead in Sugbu, I find this hillarious. I remember, that Sugbu, Butuan and Madyaas are not pacified by Brunei until a certain point and the Northern States north of the Bolkiah...

    AHC: Luzon develops similarly as Classical and Feudal Japan

    I once saw a rice productivity map of the Philippines and, upon seeing the Cagayan and Central Luzon Valleys, I wondered how it would have fared under the koku system used in Japan. Hence, I'll just phrase this challenge with these questions: Up to what degree did the political economy of...
