  1. WI: Queen Victoria had more children

    Recently a though has passed through my head: what if Albert had died in 1871 and he and Victoria had had 24 children, born on this order: girl in 1840; four boys in 1841; girl and boy in 1842; girl in 1843; two girls in 1846; boy in 1848; boy in 1853; girl in 1854; girl and boy in 1856; boy...
  2. DBWI: No Empress Victoria

    Today's the 94th birthday of Empress Elizabeth, who has ruled over Albion since the age of 28 and in 4 years could be surpassing her great-great-grandmother was the longest-reinging monarch of the isles . That got me thinking, what if we hadn't had Victoria the Great? She ascended to the throne...
  3. WI: Victoria and Albert assassinated 1840?

    There was an actual attempt in 1840 on the lives of the newlyweds then expecting their first child. Assuming the child is lost too, the king of Hanover was next in line for the throne at that moment. One supposes an earlier George V means no Prussian conquest of Hanover, which completely blows...

    WI: Evidence is found that the Royal Family was Jack the Ripper?

    So there's a commonplace rumour that Prince Albert Victor, son of Queen Victoria, or at the very least members of the English Royal family (specifically the Marquess of Salisbury), were responsible for the murders that happened at the hands of Jack the Ripper. There isn't really much to back it...

    Desire the Right: the world of Patagonia
    Threadmarks: Main Page

    It is finally time for me to start my not-so-long-teased new TL (which I teased a lot more in the Our Fair Country Discord server, and is actually just a reboot of an earler TL I did)! Presenting, Patagonia 2.0! This will function similarly to many excellent TLs such as Our Fair Country, A...

    DBWI: Queen Victoria?

    What if King Victor was born a girl? Too the best of my knowledge of British succession laws she'd still be the heir to her uncle. However, Hanover's succession laws forbid female inheritance. So perhaps fewer wars in Germany? Also things in India maybe quite different, Victorian era people...
  7. WI: Queen Victoria became interested in Spiritualism?

    WI: Queen Victoria, infamous for her mourning of her husband, the Albert, Prince Consort, developed an interest in the popular 'Spiritualism' movement that emerged in the Victorian Era and tried a séance to speak to him once more? Would she try it more than once? Would she embrace a...
  8. WI: Queen Victoria assassinated in 1882

    On March 2, 1882, a disgruntled poet named Roderick Maclean shot at Queen Victoria. Needless to say, he missed, possibly because his aim was disrupted by an Eton schoolboy. What if his shot had killed Victoria?
  9. WI: Leiningen influences on Victorian Era

    What if the princip of Leiningen live more and not die so early, making the mother of the queen Victoria remains marriage with him and the queen not born, how the not born of the mother of Europe influence the Europe?
  10. How would a longer-living Prince Edward, Duke of Kent affected Queen Victoria as future monarch?

    How would a longer-lived Prince Edward (let's say living until just about a year before Victoria becomes queen) affect Victoria's abilities and time as the Queen of Britain? First off, it can be pointed out that Edward might well have a son who would knock Victoria out of the succession so...

    WI: British Republic Established in the 1870s Through Royal Deaths?

    Following the death of Queen Victoria's mother and husband in 1861, Victoria went in to a depression fueled isolation, and just barely performed the functions of Queen of the British Empire. This was at the same time that rumours were circulating that the Crown Prince (the future King Edward...

    WI: Prince Albert died just after Princess Victoria was born?

    Would Victoria, only having been married to Albert for about two years, be less heartbroken? Or would she mourn him as she did in her later years, never remarry and when she died in 1901, Victoria the Princess Royal would be crowned Queen? If she went into such a deep depression at the start of...
  14. Did the Great Reform Act start/cause the decline of the British Monarchy?

    So I've always heard that the passage of the 1832 Great Reform act is what started the decline of the British monarch's powers but is this true? I mean within two years of the Act William IV appointed a Prime Minister who wasn't from the majority party. The attempt failed, but that was due to...

    DBWI: Queen Victoria

    What if on the 24th day of May 1819, Victoria of Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld gave birth to a girl rather than a boy. What would Britain and the world at large look like with "Victoria" (or whatever alternate name is given to the girl) on the throne? From what I know, the claims Hannover would have been...

    What happens to the Church of England with a British Republic?

    So my current timeline Stars and Stripes Ascendant is based off a trilogy of books with an Ameriwank where the United States successfully invades Britain in 1866 due to a war over the Trent Affair, with the book ending in Britain's capitulation and the forced abdication of Queen Victoria. Under...
  17. Barren Victoria...

    Does anyone have ideas of the effect of Queen Victoria being barren her entire life? Assume she lives the same amount of time, dying in 1901, with the heir presumptives during her life being Ernest Augustus, King of Hanover, then his son King George V of Hanover and then George V's son, Prince...

    WI: No Kensington System

    There were several requests from both George IV and William IV to have the young princess Alexandrina Victoria brought up in the royal household, whilst the duchess of Kent reviled the idea of allowing her daughter out of her sight.
