  4. AHC: Latest date of divergence to keep Europeans more superstitious

    What do you think is the latest PoD, when most Europeans could be kept in believing in Vampires, Werewolves, Fairies, Witches, and Curses, especially in rural areas?

    WI: Russian Moldavia?

    I'd like to start a discussion on a scenario, with a PoD anywhere between 1600 and 1848 (arguably the starting mark of Romanian nationalism), in which the Russian Empire manages to annex the region of Moldavia into its domains after conflicts with the Ottoman Empire. All lands shown in the map...

    WI: Romania expels the Transylvanian Hungarians at the end of WWI?

    The issue of Transylvania and the Hungarian population in the east was a burning issue since the end of the Crimean War in the 1850s and the formation of Romania as a nation.

    The Focsani-Namoloasa-Braila(FNB) line was about 180km long and situated on the Siret river bank, beween the impassable Carpathian mountains and the Danube Delta so it couldn't be flanked.

    Okay, so, this is a pretty simple alternate history post: how could Romania become an empire (colonial or otherwise), and how could this empire last until at least the early-mid 20th century?

    WI: A Phanariote state in Moldavia and Wallachia?

    What if Alexander Ypsilantis had somehow managed to defeat the Ottomans during his revolt in the 1820's? Perhaps as result of more support from Russia, alongside more military victories?

    King Michael was popular on Romania, and after the fall of bloc some royal houses did tried to return to the power, like the house of Zog in Albania (that only failed because the government frauded the plebiscite) and Tsar Simeon of Bulgaria, who had a lackluster government and blew his chances...
