  2. Would Morocco be considered part of Europe if Portugal was able to conquer/integrate it?

    Suppose Sebastian conquers Morocco and it is slowly integrated into Portugal, with a Luso-Arabic language being the lingua franca. Would this alternate Morocco (or at least parts of it) be looked at like another part of Europe?
  3. King Dom Miguel I of Brazil - An Absolutist Brazil Wank
    Threadmarks: The Younger Brother

    Prince Pedro of Portugal was a willful young man, and his early life in Rio de Janeiro, away from the big battles happening in Europe, gave rise to a strong desire to take part in great events. When the Pernambucan Revolution came in 1817, defying the rule of this father in the Americans, the...

  6. WI: Portugal became the dominant Kingdom in the Iberian peninsula around the XIII Century

    Let's suppose Portugal manages to enter a personal union with Leon instead of what happened in OTL. I won't discuss how plausible this scenario is. I'm more curious to know about what would happen specifically during the Age of Discovery and the colonization of America. Here is a map to what I...

    WI: Portugal establishes settlements in Luzon in 1545/1550s

    I wonder what will happen if the Portuguese established settlements in Luzon in 1545 due to one of the Portuguese traders nad navigators there establishing settlements there, I tend to think that it would lead to Legaspi ignoring Luzon in 1565/1570 if it still happens but the Spanish would still...

    AHC/WI: French Brazil, Portuguese Canada

    IOTL, Portugal briefly flirted with colonizing eastern Canada (Newfoundland & Labrador, Nova Scotia), while France attempted to take Brazil in the 1550's. I'm planning out a TL where I basically swap France and Portugal around: France gets Brazil, successfully throwing out the Portuguese, and as...

    Portuguese Philippines

    I think if the Portuguese colonized the Philippines, the colonization will be much slower and the Portuguese would have rights to Luzon and Sulu due to discovery and alliance, the last Majapahit ruler was allied with Manuel I and Joao III. I think the Igorots might have allied with the...

    Scenario: The Iberian peninsula is united under a single flag sometime before 1492. Main question: How does this affect the colonization of the New World?

    With a POD of 1480, besides Brazil and its African and Asian territories, could Portugal have other colonies? Before anyone talks about how they couldn't do that because of demographics, you're wrong, @Viriato has consistently shown that Portugal had an enormous amount of settlers and extremely...

    If Brazil maintained its union with Portugal, how soon would slavery be abolished?

    Let's say the United Kingdom of Portugal, Brazil and the Algarves survived and Brazil continued to be the capital of the Portuguese Empire. With the passage of time the colonial empire would be more and more Brazilian than Portuguese. So how long would slavery in Brazil survive and how would it...
