Alternate History: Explain the historical event

Took me a while to realise that Goeschen wasn't Georg Joachim Göschen or something dutch.

Common Korean name for the 1600's and 1700's, characterised by an unstable government era, in part brought upon by early western imperialism.

The Waipounamu Renaissance

After the partition, and the devastation of the subsequent war, South Aotearoa experienced an economic miracle during the 1960s under the Mana Orurehau regime. In this environment, the South Aotearoan film industry blossomed both artistically and commercially, surpassing the great successes of 1920s Aotearoan film. Propaganda films such as Pakanga! (1963) and Rātā (1967) used government funding to push technical boundaries, while directors such as Korahina Maniapoto and Maunga Utatonga developed the groundbreaking Hoa Kiriata art movement, highlighted by works such as as Te Pua (1965) and Turaturaki (1971).

The Confrontación
 
The Confrontación
1649 painting by famous Dutch painter Rembrandt. In this painting he uses his characteristic thick, poignant oils to craft his typically moody scene. A gang of heavily armed Spanish cavalry, armor reflecting dim torchlight and the moon, are accosted on the road by a band of Dutch freemen, some armed with simple axes and halberds, led by a simply dressed Dutch Reformed priest. The moon set "behind" the Dutch (from the Spaniard perspective) casts their faces into shadow, transforming them into wraiths ready to fight. The moon thus also illumines the surprised Spanish, horses balking. Finally the title, in Spanish: Confrontación, almost seems a taunt. Painted in 1649, a year after the end of the Thirty Years' War and the Eighty Years' War, the Dutch Republic was extremely successfully in its objectives and had even driven the Spanish from the Southern Provinces. The painting is famous for its political significance along with of course its artistic excellence.

El Camino

The name given to Katherine of Aragon's famous 1519 pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela in northern Spain, made in Thanksgiving for the birth of her twin sons, James, Prince of Wales, and Henry, Duke of York, in 1518. Katherine had prayed to her ancestors' patron saint to give her a strong warrior son throughout her pregnancy and the twins were born on July 25th, causing Katherine to exclaim "Santiago Matamoros me ha bendecido! " [St James the Moor killer has blessed me!]

Fittingly for his namesake, the Prince of Wales became a Crusader, invading Morocco in the name of the One True Church in 1542, succeeding in Christianising it and claiming it for England to hold as hereditary Papal Vassals.

The surrender of the last CSA holdouts in 1905

Signed in Liverpool in England, the surrender marked a distinct thawing of Anglo-American relations as the British, prompted by Philadelphia's rising star on the world stage, and eager not to lose influence in India and Africa, ceased its support of the CSA government in exile and forced its leaders to surrender themselves to President Roosevelt to face justice for their continued betrayal of the United States of America.

The Battle of Culloden Field - Prince Charles's Greatest Victory.
The famous Prince Charles was a flame that burned brightly, and briefly. Born in 1387 with an impeccable pedigree (son of Edward V "of Angouleme", grandson of Edward IV "the Black King", great-grandson of Edward III, great-great-grandson of Edward II, great-great-great-grandson of Edward I...Anglo-French monarchs in those days were not known for their creativity). As Edward IV held tightly to his claim to the French throne, his son Edward (later V) decided to break with tradition and named his son Charles, hoping to pacify French nobles by guaranteeing they would not become "Anglicized" in any way. Charles grew to be beautiful and charming, the darling of English and French commoners alike. When warlike Edward IV died and his softer son Edward V succeeded to the throne many French nobles rose in revolt, demanding greater rights and some even demanding the kingdoms' new personal union be broken, with Charles to become their king, and his father ruling over England. Despite the Angevin history of sons fighting fathers, Charles remained loyal and true to his father, destroying army after army of rebels. As he mopped the rebels up news came of a Scottish invasion of England, plagued by arrest as well. Sailing quickly to take command of his father's forces in England, Prince Charles fought an astonishing blitz campaign, seizing town after town and finally killing the king of Scotland and his sons at the Battle of Culloden Field in 1414. Alas it was to be his last. Prince Charles died of wounds sustained in the battle. He left no son, having spent his youth in diplomacy and martial pursuits. His lone brother, Edward, became Edward VI of England, France, Wales, and Ireland on their father's death...but it was not to last. Within two decades the only Anglo holdings on the continent were Calais and some bits of Aquitaine. Despite a century of bloodshed and effort, the Anglo-French Union was no more.

The Tan of the Hour

Notorious slogan for a self-tanning company whose largely unvetted and untested product resulted in horrific toxic skin allergies leading to the deaths of over 100 people and permanent scarring in many other cases. Later it was found that the company's warning of not applying more than a few ounces across the entire body in one sitting was to be takrn seriously, especially as sunlight was found to be one of the three key ingredients needed for the skin death, which in its earliest stages gave one the look of a phenomenal tropical tan for about 70 minutes - as the skin was literally *dying*.

President Ed Gein
When the first of Hitler’s Z-weapons was detonated in New York Harbor in 1944, the tide of the war, which had been somewhat stagnant, totally broke against the US. With only a nascent nuclear program of its own, the Americans were defenseless against the German atomic attacks as they rolled through the country. By 1950, it was over

And who did the Nazis want on power in their new puppet state? The most monstrous people they could find- those with the most abhorrent psychopathies, who they could control, because the depravity of their mentalities did not mean they weren’t susceptible to control - in fact it made them more so. Enter “President” Ed Gein.

I will speak nothing more of him. Just reminding you of the truth, here, from this underground station, reminding any remaining real Americans of what has happened to us...

God Chancellors of Imperium Teutonicorum

The official title of the council that ruled the Holy German Empire from 1467, after the overthrow of the Hohenstaufen family, to 1609, when the Chancellors were plagued by a series of scandals involving black magic. This led to a revolution that saw the execution of all chancellors and the restoration of the Hohenstaufens, with some help from France and the Kalmar Union.

England's Shame
 
England's Shame
Replies to a Scottish protest hymme that mourns the victims of the brutal reprisals against Scottish people during their independence struggle. After Europe was subdued by the Nazis and a separate peace with England was made, Oswald Mosley and his government rose to power. In 1966 Scottland, disgusted by Mosley's many wars in the overseas colonies and Ireland had enough and tried to break away peacefully from Britain's iron grip. A liberal minded Democratic yet Nationalist movement tried to organize elections as Mosley and secretary of war, Arminius Midford, Unity Midford's out of the wedlock son, prepared to reduce Scottland to a simple district. A Democratic Constitution was declared for Scottland. Enraged, Mosley ordered British forces to quell the rebellion, German Luftwaffe was invited to bomb Scottish cities. The war lasted until 1973 with many casulties on both sides. Scottland never forgave the British fascist war crimes even after WW3, when Nazi Germany was destroyed and Britain was liberated and Scottland won its independence.

The Sentinelese Expansion
A summarized explanation of the waves of migration of the Sentinelese people from their homeland (Sentinel Island) to their present-day homeland in the Broken Island (OOC: Broken Ridge), a microcontinent in the south of the Indian ocean. There, the migrating Sentineles brought their language/s said to be the remaining member of the ancient Andamanese family, and customs to the different regions of the island, adjusting their lifestyle to the environment of their new homeland. At the course of the centuries, the Sentinelese had interacted and intermixed with other ethnolinguistic groups who traded with them like the Arabs, Sabeans and Africans.

The Burgundian Congo
In the late 19th century, as efforts were made to unite the French-speaking peoples with the Bretons and the Provencals, a diplomatic mission was sent to the Kingdom of the Congo by the Burgundian delegates, to see how they had managed in their own area. So many Burgundians arrived that the locals joked it was the Burgundian Congo

Became President of the Plainfield Chamber of Commerce after several unsuccessful tries. While originally losing by substantial margins, he eventually gained the office after several members unaccountably disappeared. After one term, he retired and opened a little roadside upholstery/lampshade shop.

South Pole Pony Express
In the late 19th Century Argentine sought to populate the very sparse settled Patagonia-Fireland. In the 1880es, Argentine President Miguel Juarez Celman contacted American Wild West Show performer and former frontier Pony Express rider William Frederick Cody aka Buffalo Bill. Cody was invited to built up a communication system in Patagonia. Cody draw a concept modelled after the historic Pony express. He bought several hundred Ponies in the American West and shipped them to Argentine. He also hired several hundred young Argentine Gaucho Cowboys from Argentine , whom he thought to be more suitable for the country. He called his new company South Pole Pony Express and received funds from the Argentine state. Bufallo Bill´s Pony Express in Argentine didn´t turn in good profits, in the 1890es Cody went back to the US and the company became State owned. The South Pole Pony Express operated well into the 1920es.

The Pyrenees front in WW1
Refers to the fighting in the Pyrenees in WW1 where Portugal,France,and Britain invaded Spain,due to the Spanish leader being antithetical to their interest in the region. The front was a brutal meatgrinder and stalemate. It’s said that the pyrenees front gave Germany some hope that the the Entente would bleed themselves out on that from,but those hopes stopped immediately after Austria-Hungary collapsed into ethnic warfare,and the United States joined the war as a member of the Entente.
