While the civil war in the United States and other problems in Europe developed Ivan wondered what he was doing. He took the Tsesarevich away quickly while he protested. That quadrilateral was not a place for someone who would inherit an empire sooner or later "Paskevich what the hell are you doing?!" Question Nicholas Alexandrovich.The son of Czar Alexander II was irritated with the only guard who dared to remove him from that place in Italy. "Tsesarevich, excuse me" Ivan exclaimed quickly, swallowing "But you are a very important person, I understand that you love these ... "practices" further west of St. Petersburg, but this behavior would be scandalous and besides ... What Would it happen if something happened to you? Princess Dagmar of Denmark and Tsarevna would be very distressed about her loss". Argument Ivan Paskevich believing that these could already be his last words in case of suffering the wrath of Tsesarevich. But he only found a sigh of sadness when the 21-year-old man nodded. "You're right" "Excuse me...What?" Confused question the guard, to which the Tsesarevich was going to the exit. "Come on Ivan, there's a lot to do yet" Nicholas said as he returned to where he was staying for his trip to Europe. Soon they would return to Russia. Excerpt from "Russian Reform: Alexander II and Nicholas II" of Yury Ovechkin At the beginning of the 19th century the Russian Empire was not a site that favored economic growth or the freedoms of the individual. The Crimean War had been long and costly, problems between different ethnic groups were normal, liberalism was rare and industry was little compared to the growing economies in Western Europe. The change begins in 1855. Alexander II, although he made mistakes, made the beginning of the so-called "Russian Reform", we talked about the military reform, the new bureaucracy, the new judicial system, the creation of the zemstvo, the peace with the ottomans in the balkans, the industrial development of Finland and the emancipation of the servants, while on the other side we have errors in education, reliable judgments, suppression of nationalisms and the various attacks on his life, which ceased in 1881, with his death. And so, the change continued, with the coronation of Nicholas the second after the time of mourning. ................................................................................................................ Honestly, this would be the first "alternate history" I do, it was originally going to be a true story but now I think it would be more of a "documentary" or anthology. With a POD in 1864-1865, I'm open to ideas and suggestions, some of the changes are already mentioned in the thread "We need help for an alternate history" while others probably change or do not happen (because I have no idea how alone Serbia and Greece could become independent from the Ottomans while Bulgaria does not).
