Alternate Wikipedia Infoboxes VI (Do Not Post Current Politics or Political Figures Here)

So, a while ago I posted a map of a Nestorian Turkey in the Map Thread - here's it's Emperor.

Osman IV (Os̱mân Ömer Nestur Çoḫân ben Bâyezîd ben Erṭoğrıl ebû Orhan Os̱mânoğlu; born 28 January 1970) is the Şâhenşâh of the Ottoman Empire. He ascended to the throne on 2017 upon the death of his father.

Osman was born in the Imperial Palace of Nebuchadnezzar (Iraki: Serây-i Nebûḫâtneṣṣâr), located in the Karḫa district in the Iraki capital, Bağdad. He was the second child and first son of his father Bayezid III and his mother, Queen Empress Zeînifelek Gülezibâ Kocabaṣı. He became Veliaht-i Şâhenşâhlık upon his father's accession as Şâhenşâh on 13 June 2009 and succeeded him following his death on 14 October 2017. He went to private primary, secondary and tertiary schools in Irak and attended the Imperial University of Gondēšāpūr in Persia, as well as the Pandidaktḗrion in Constantinople, graduating with a degree in Law and a Master in Economic Law, respectively. He married Kadınefendi Nakşidil Yıldız in 1993, and they have seven children: Princess Mihrümah (born 1994), Veliaht-i Şâhenşâhlık Orhan (born 1996), twins Prince Çihangir and Princess Raziye (born 1997), Princess Melisa (born 1999), Prince Rüstem (born 2001) and Princess Bezmiâlem (born 2004).

Osman is interested in sports, such as chariot racing, bullfighting and football, and religious affairs. Until his accession to the throne, he was a member of the Imperial Chariot-Racing Committee and the Grandmaster of the secular branch of the Order of Mârs̱adai. He is a supporter of the Red Charioteer Club of Baghdad (Iraki: Kızıl Arabacıları-ye Bağdad'ın) and of the Yunansêray Football Club.

I used the likeness of Turkish actor Halit Ergenç to give life to Osman IV. Turkish soap operas have become common here in Mexico for some reason, and he stars as Suleiman the Magnificent in one.

Οσμάν ΙΟμερ Νεστούρ Τζοχάν βεν Βάγεζίδ βεν Ερτογχριλ εβυ Ορχαν Οσμανογχλυ
This is based on OTL's Karamanli Turkish, which was a form of written Turkish and a dialect spoken by Orthodox Turks in the Ottoman Empire.

ܘܨܡܐܢ ܥܡܝܪ ܢܝܣܬܘܪ ܫܥܚܐܢ ܒܢ ܒܐܝܙܝܕ ܒܢ ܝܪܬܥܓܪܝܠ ܝܒܘ ܘܪܗܢ ܘܣܡܐܢܘܓܠܘ
This was my attempt at writing the full name of Osman IV in Syriac... More likely than not a bunch of nonsense, but hey, I tried!

Turkish ITTL is more akin to Ottoman Turkish, with several loanwords - but nowhere near OTL's level - and it's mostly written in the Pahlavi script, which is not replaced by Arabic in Iran. To be honest, it's very tiresome to make the letters match the phonology (a.k.a. it being actually readable and not just a bunch of random gibberish) so, even if I did my best and carefully checked each letter I copied and pasted from Wikipedia, expect it to be full of errors. I don't think there are many people here who can read the Pahlavi script, but whatever lol.
That's dope bro, I'd like to get my eyeballs on a Eastern Roman Empire if you have made it.

I remember a TL with this exact idea of Jerry Litton becoming president, though sadly I don't recall the name of it anymore.

EDIT: Here it is

haha! This was one of the first timelines I read on the site when I was just lurking, and one of the main inspirations for that little Litton one-shot I made. I wondered where it had gone-- sad to see it hasn't been updated in over a year. Was absolutely one of my favorite TLs, despite it being unfinished.

Thanks, mate, for sure! However, you'll have to give me some time since I've got to 1) make a collage of the Byzantine territories (they also have a pretty big empire), 2) edit and tweak the wikibox I've already got of the Byzantine emperor, 3) make a write up for the lore of the map, and 4) make up a Wikipedia-style bio for the emperor.

Maybe I exaggerated with the "you'll have to give me time"... Well, I didn't say how much, I guess. Here's the infobox and bio of Emperor and Autocrat Alexios V. I'll have the map done later - I'm kinda busy with school rn.

Alexios V (Greek: Αλέξιος Κωνσταντῖνος Κάρολος Στέφανος Ιωάννης Δημητήρος Ἀβρᾱᾱ́μ Μιχαήλ Παλαιολόγος-Δανία; romanized: Aléxios Kōnstantînos Károlos Stéphanos Iōánnēs Dēmḗtrios Abrāā́m Mikhaḗl Palaiológos-Danía; born 10 July 1965) is the current Emperor and Autocrat of the Hellenes.

Alexios was born in the Porphyry Room of the Great Palace of Constantinople, as the first child of the Prince and Princess of Hellas (later Theodore IV and Anna-Maria of Byzantium and Denmark). His father ascended the throne after the death of his uncle Michael XI in 1977, making 12-year-old Alexius the heir apparent. He received his primary, secondary and tertiary education in Constantinople and obtained a degree and masters in economics at the Aristotelian University of Thessalonica. In 1991, he married Duchess Catherine Mavrocordata, with whom he has five children: Princess Maria Irene (born 1992), Constantine Alexander, Prince of Hellas (born 1994), Prince George Pamphilus (born 1996), Prince Philip Simon (born 2000) and Prince Basil Nicholas (born 2003).

When his father died in 2006, after 29 years of reign, Alexios became the Emperor and Autocrat of the Hellenes and reigned over Greece, Anatolia, Cyrenaica, Azania, Erythræa, Antipodæa, and multiple other Indian, Chinese and Indonesian coastal enclaves. Since then, Alexios has reigned as a constitutional monarch, retaining significant powers. Currently, one of the main concerns of Alexios is the rising tensions in the Empire's Azanian provinces, with an ethnic and religious conflict between the Greek ắpoikoi and the native Azanians that has been slowly escalating since 1999.

The man in the pic is the actual Crown Prince of Greece, Pavlos of Glücksburg.

After an extensive 1 minute read of the Wikipedia article for "Born in the purple", I realized that it's a title reserved for the children born to a reigning Emperor and that they were born in an entirely lined-with-porphyry room in the Great Palace of Constantinople... I can't be bothered to change the entire lore again, so let's just assume that it changed with the centuries and now it's a title reserved for the children born of the main family line, and in that same room in the Great Palace. By the time Alexios was born, his father Theodore had just become the heir apparent of the Byzantine empire, and him and his wife, who had also just gotten married, moved to the Great Palace.

Family relations: Alexios V is the brother-in-law of the sister of the Emperor of Mexico, Agustín VI, first cousin of the King of All Spain, Felipe VI, and of the King of Denmark, Frederik X, thus being the nephew of the Queen Mother of Denmark, Margrethe II, and is also the nephew of the King of Nubia, Senouthios III, as well as a second cousin of Constantin III of Wallachia-Moldavia, of Peter IV of Croatia and Uros IX of Serbia.

As you can guess, apoikoi means colonist, coming from ἀπο- and οἶκος, meaning "away from home".

Easter egg: an Archimesazon shares his name with a certain bloatmaxxing legend in the bodybuilding sphere.

I probably would've given Bush New Hampshire, given that it was his second strongest state in popular vote percentage only after Utah in the real life 1988 US Presidential Election. Apart from that, good job.

Looking back at the popular vote percent; you're right! I tend to forget how recent NH's lurch to the left is haha :p I'll make an edit to it, just for accuracy's sake.
 
What are Osman IV’s family relations?
I'll be honest with you, I've got 0 clue why I wrote that. I haven't plotted out the Ottoman family tree yet. I have a very old page on familyecho.com from when my "TL" was still in its infant stage, where I developed the family tree of the Mexican monarch, Agustín VI. That later grew and extended to almost all of Europe, and the American monarchist countries, and the occasional non-European and non-American monarchs.

I don't wanna rush and have to revise everything later, so I'll give you some countries where he could potentially have family relations: Egypt, Assyria, Tocharistan, Bactria, Chorasmia, Sogdia, Sindh, Bengal, Uyghuristan, Mongolia, Qipchaqistan, Qimaqestan and Qarloqistan. However, they're not guaranteed. because I haven't plotted their family trees. The countries in bold are more likely since they're also Nestorian.

I see, but I also have some other questions:
1) Does the House of Palæologus have any branches?
2) Was Margrethe II of Denmark Queen-regent or Queen-consort?
3) Is Augustin VI of Mexico a Hapsburg or a Iturbide?

1.- Well, the Palæologus are actually the Palæologus-Danía - the main line went extinct after the death of Irene I (r. 1841-1892), who married Otto (Óthōn) of Bavaria. Irene and Otto only had one child, a daughter at that. Helena II (r. 1892-1913) married OTLs George I, who actually maintains the name William (Gouliélmos), and their line is the currently reigning one.

Btw, TTL doesn't have a central POD. Hell, it's not even a TL proper. It started as just a map with some lore that is currently expanding with time.

I didn't really do much research and I also said that I just make things up as time passes, often employing the rule of cool and ignoring plausibility and all that jazz (how else would Zoroastrians, Manichaeans, Tocharians, Bactrians and Sogdians, for example, still be around?). However, I can tell you about the current descendants of William and Helena - the King of Wallachia-Moldavia (Constantin III), the King of Serbia (Aleksander II), the King of Croatia (Josip IV), the King of Spain (Felipe VI), the heir apparent of Nubia (Philotheus), the children of the Counts of Évreux, the Duke of Aosta, the King of Hungary (Leopold I), the King of Perú (Andrés IV), the Duke of Kent, the Archduke of Baden (Maximilian II), the Grand Duke of Hesse, Prince Charles and the King of the Two Sicilies (Martin III).

2.- Margrethe II was, as IOTL, Queen regnant. The royal houses of some places remained virtually untouched, like Denmark. Others, like Sweden, are actually different - their monarchs are still members of the House of Holstein-Gottorp.

3.- Agustín VI is an Iturbide. His last names are de Iturbide y Orléans (his father, Fernando II, was a direct descendant of Agustín de Iturbide, and his mother is OTL's Anne, Duchess of Calabria, a child of the French King, Henri VI). Also, the Habsburgs are present in the Americas, more specifically, in the Kingdom of Louisiana (I sent Maximilian to Louisiana lol), which covers the entire Mississippi basin and the states of Alabama, Mississippi and Georgia.
