But in particular how much more it would hurt republicans and if democrats would do even better in 1932...

    Help with Brazil without the 1964 coup

    I'm thinking about writing a timeline with a wank Populist Republic, however, I'm having difficulty in trying to imagine how Brazilian elections would play out without the 1964 coup. I'm betting in either a JK or Carlos Lacerda winning in 1965, and the defeated candidate in that election winning...

    Would it be possible for minor royals/nobles to become a leader of a political party?

    What I have in mind is a quasi-federal monarchy such as the German Empire, where you had the Emperor and many kings and dukes throughout Germany.
