  1. Smaller Mexico, fragmented New Spain (Gran Colombia but in Mexico) - Better outcome?

    Most Alt-history narratives explore the scenario of Mexico remaining a vast "empire", potentially rivaling the United States in power. This speculation is cool indeed, but here I would like to think about a smaller Mexican State. At the time of its independence, Mexico was indeed enormous, and...

    AHC: Less Spanish colonization

    Starting in 1492, what PODs could result in Spain colonizing less of the Americas? You can have some Native civilizations surviving, though due to disease it is likely that some regions would still be colonized as IOTL.

    Plausibility check: Portuguese-speaking population as big or bigger than Hispanophone

    Is it possible to screw Spain (and especially the size of its colonial empire) whilst wanking Portugal (and its colonial empire) to a point where the number of people who speak Portuguese is just as big as or even bigger than the Hispanophone population?

They achieved this through leasing out a few relatively unimportant mines to the Spanish and using the money to buy guns and the technology to make them-...

    Most Interesting Alt. Colonies?

    I'm thinking of doing a TL which, due to a POD in the Castilian War of Succession, creates very different colonies. I have a few ideas but want to know what you guys think?

    DBWI: Make Castile A Great Power

    Otl, Iberia has been divided into Castile, Aragon, and Portugal since before the end of the reconquista. And this fractured state means that they never became the biggest powers. Aragon had significant power in Italy, even still controlling much of the land south ot Rome, and the Mediterranean...
  9. WI: Spain is colonially screwed over

    What if, for whatever reason, all of Spain's colonies in the new world failed? Who would colonize where? What would the end result be? Sorry for the simplistic WI, I was originally have all the major empires (England, France, Portugal, and Spain) have their colonies in the New World screwed...
