  2. Unity in Diversity: Indonesian Confederation
    Threadmarks: 1. Start of a Revolution

    So, I've been thinking about this WI for a while and I think it would be very interesting. The Indonesian Kingdoms would rebel from the Dutch/French during the Napoleonic wars and go on to form a confederation. Though I am new to this forum, I will give it a try. This might be unrealistic. But...

    The year is 1871. The harsh rule of Napoleon III in this timeline has tarnished his image in France. Many people sought a return the the old republic, whilst others took a more radical view.

    Jose de San Martin, King of La Plata.

    The title says it all. I know it is borderline ASB at best, but I want to know how any of you think this could be possible (if it is possible)?
