I'm interested to see how these fleeing Ottomans do in FRA and the CSA, I assume it's mostly Muslim Turks? I wonder how Americans deal with a large influx of "Mohammedans" in their countries, something that didn't really happen in our timeline until much later.
 
@Dante It really is interesting when you start looking a migration patterns and relies that if War X happened in location B in stead of Location A how much they change. TTL Europe has been stable yes the Troubles happened but long run the Franciscanist Revolution served to unify many of Europe's small states into bigger ones, France never had the revolution as we know it and is still the Number 1 power in Europe, and as my next chapter on Great Britain will show they have been closing the Naval gap as The Royal Navy has been forced to spread out to cover more area form more potential enemies. There was also an Irish wave to hit the Americas back during the troubles but since the creation of New South Ireland and the Irish Removal Act Irish migration has shifted away from the Americas and is concentrating on New South Ireland (OTL New Zealand).

Glad yall are enjoying the Story feel free to comment and I will answer as best I can. and as this cookie has already popped up once The Up coming British Chapter will see. "King George IV is dead, The King is Dead God Save The King, Long Live the King, Long live King Richard IV." To any Brits out there if I butchered that let me know and how I should fix it. I am Truly winging it.
 
Sardinia is not likely to have a good future. (Probably end up in a similar outcome like Bohemia Empire) A Sardinia colony (Syria for example if they could get it) would have been a better sensible idea for a backup plan when Italy heats up or just come with an arrangement with the Empire over the matter.

Piedmont is part of Sardinia. Back when the Troubles wrecked the old order in Italy Napoleon was close to getting all of the Italian Pensular under his new Empire. But the French beat him to Turin and saved the Sardinia's bacon. Since then Sardinia has been a buffer state for France and VE1 was cool with that but he is now dead and the hot heads now control the government.
 
The Savoy back up plan is Armenia. Which will have a Savoy monarch for a while remember it's Victoria Maria that will inherit the throne not Grand Duke Paul he will be King consort.
 
The British Empire in the 1830’s
The British Empire in the 1830’s




As the 1830’s dawned King George IV of Great Britain was a sickly man and he was increasingly aware that his time on this earth was growing less and less. For the most part he couldn't complain The Empire was stronger now than when his father George III left it in his hands. He had seen the biggest part of the Indian continent added to the Empire, China had been humbled in the Great Opium war the Quing dynasty shattered into smaller more easily dealt with realms. British North America had not only been defended but thanks to the settlement plan he had championed had successfully seen the Population rise to be equal to the American Republics. And he had brought the Rising star of the Mederatranin in to a firm alliance with the Empire. He should have been happy to lay his worldly burdens down but there was one hang up that prevented this, Henry Prince of Wales (Prince Lionheart) his eldest son had no interest in becoming king or governing the realm instead he wanted to dedicate his life to the Royal Army and allow his younger brother Richard Duke of York. George had been putting this decision off for several years now hoping that Henry would see sense but it had never happened. So in October of 1830 as George IV lay on his death bed his two eldest sons and Prime Minister F. J. Robinson, 1st Viscount Goderich (Tory) gathered and a new order of succession was drawn up with Henry giving up the title Prince of Wells and taking the Title Henry Duke of Mann and would be given residence on the Isle of Mann. His children could inherit the tile and estates granted to him,His Children would drop below his youngest sister Princess Wilhelmina Amelia and any children she may have in the line of succession. While Richard William Edward Duke of York would become Richard William Edward Prince of Wales and his 9 year old son would become Henry Edward Alexander Duke of York. These changes would be legalized with the passage of the Succession Act of 1830.


Henry Edward Augustus Hanover Duke of Mann and King Richard IV King of the United Kingdom of the British Isles, and The Crown Republic of New England

On February 2, 1831 George IV would peacefully passed away at the age of sixty nine. His second son would take the throne of the British Empire when he was asked what his regal name would be he simply answered “My Name is Richard, so that would make me Richard IV.” Richard IV would be crowned King of the United Kingdom of the British Isles, and The Crown Republic of New England. Ten year old Henry Duke of York became Henry Prince of Wales. As Duke of York Richard had been in the middle of the politics of the British Empire and so King Richard IV had a perspective on British Politics and the British people that no king since Charles II had had. Being crowned king placed some constitutional constraints upon Richard IV but he made it clear that he would be taking a very active role in the government.


As the 1830’s progressed it became clear that two major problems were on the horizon. First was the fact that following the Dutch Revolution France was not only the the dominant power in Western Europe but also controlled the entire southern shore of the English Channel. Then to make thing even better by the mid 1830 the French Navy commissioned its 57th Ship ship of the line and the first steam powered Ship of the line. This meant that because the Royal Navy was spread out covering the far flung empire that in the Event of a war they could achieve parody with the Home Fleet This tied in to the second was the situation in America where both the Federal Republic of America and the Commonwealth of American States had both shown a renewed aggressiveness with the recent Mississippi War in which they dissected the Republic of Louisiana and the Republic of Cuba. With Louisiana being split between the two countries and Cuba being annexed into the Commonwealth of American States. The British would respond to all this with the Defense Bill of 1838 which would expand the Royal Navy including the construction of 12 steam powered ships of the line and the Army of British North America. However much to Henry Duke of Mann’s frustration it did not allow for the procurement of a new cap lock Rifled Musket, like several European Powers were switching to. Instead the Brown Bess conversion to Cap lock that had begun in the late 1820’s would continue as would the conversion of the older rifles like the Ferguson Baker and Brunswick rifles, it also meant that the British Army would field a mix armament instead of a universal Rifled Musket. King Richard also leaned on the Crown Republic of New England to increase its defense spending.


Politically in Great Britain the Tories lead by Prime Minister F. J. Robinson, 1st Viscount Goderich and Sir Robert Peel, 2nd Baronet would control parliament throughout the 1830’s. This is largely due to the actions of King Richard who was able to get the Tories to pass the Parliamentary Reform Act of 1833 added 200 seats to the House of Commons and extended the franchise to all English men of the age of 25 (at the insistence of the King). This extension of the vote to the working class served to kill the fledgling Chartist Republican movement in Britain, and strengthened the view of the King in the eyes of the Working class. (1) Still following the 1839 general election it was the Whigs who prevailed as John Russell, 1st Earl Russell became Prime Minister and formed a government.


Overseas Territory

Away from the home islands the British empire was prospering the British East India Company had rested control of most of India during the 1820’s with the Britain or it Mantra Puppet state controlling ⅔ or India the French and their Mysore puppet state controlled the remaining third of the continent. When the Durch Revolution forced King William II to flee to the Cape Colony and set up the Dutch Overseas Kingdom he had sought British protection for his poor and underdeveloped nation as well as the promise that given the chance the British would help him win back his lost Eruoean lands. This would result in the Secret Treaty of Kaapstat signed and ratified in 1838. The existence would be the reason for the British not recognizing the Second Dutch Republic or signing the 1838 Dutch Neutrality and Independence Treaty. In exchange for this the Dutch of Seas Republic sold the British Empire the Island of Sri Lanka and rights to build naval bases in the Dutch East Indies. The Colonies of New Hanover and Kingsland on the Continent of Australia would see a population increase in the 1830’s as the Penal Colony Act of 1833 began directing Penal colonists from England and Ireland away from British North America and the two Australian Colonies. By the End of the Decade the population of New Hanover on the West Coast of Australia would be just over 115,000 and the population of Kingsland on the South East Coast of Australia would be just over 125,000 people.


Australia the off blue is the swedish settlement of New Stockholm.

Now we come to British North America the 1820’s and early 1830's had seen British colonization policy focused on building up the population of the Sprawling lands that were British North America; and these policies had done their job nicely with the The massive colony having 4,096,007 by the 1840 census. At the urging of Arthur Wellesley, 1st Earl of Ontario (after the Great Lake) The commander of the Royal Army of British North America. British North America was reorganized form large territories into a series of Commonwealths. These Commonwealths would have more local authority than the old territories, but nowhere near the level of old American Colonies. The Territory of Lower Canada would become the Commonwealth of Canada, the Territory of Upper Canada become the Commonwealth of Ontario, The Large Michigan Territory would be broken up into three Commonwealths The large southern Peninsula would now be known as the Commonwealth of Huron, the Smaller northern Northern Peninsula would be known as Commonwealth of Superior and the land South of Lake Superior and between Lake Michigan and the Mississippi would know be known as the Commonwealth of Michigan.(2) The Vast open lands of Missouri and Prince Rupert were left as is as their populations didn’t warrant a change at this point. The last changes for British North America came from the Defense Bill of 1838 which funded the construction of Forts in the Commonwealth”s of Huron, Michigan, and Ontario; and the creation of a Royal Naval Dockyard at Sydney Harbor in Nova Scotia.


British North America 4,096,007 people not counting the Crown Republic of New England.

Commonwealth of Ontario: 775,399
Commonwealth of Michigan: 796,578
Commonwealth of Huron: 762,578
Commonwealth of Canada 610,550
Commonwealth of Superior: 350,550
Missouri: 349,896
Prince Rupert's Land: 225,456
Nova Scotia 177,000
Prince Edward Island 48,000


British North America end of the 1830's I know it looks rough this was not an easy map to make I will try to refine it.

  1. I have looked up information on how the British Electoral process works and as an feel like I’m nowhere near enough informed to actually have it make since so I’m gonna leave by British politics vague other than for story needs. If someone can help me better under stand it feel free to PM me and I can go more in depth.
  2. )Huron is the Lower Peninsula of Michigan OTL, Superior is the Upper Peninsula of Michigan plus some of Wisconsin OTL, Michigan is Wisconsin plus Chicago area OTL

Russian Emprie in the 1830's
Russia land for the Russians




When he came to throne in 1816 at the end of his Regency Micheal II had a vision of the Russia that he wanted to create and it had nothing to do with the Knightly orders that had been his father Paul I’s vision. Micheal freely admitted that his father was an idiot. No Micheal’s vision of Russia’s future was of an industrialized Empire of free Russians ruled by the Czar as the Father of the Nation and with Russian Orthodox Church providing the moral guidance that every free Russian Citizen would need. In the 1820’s Russia had joined the British Coalition in the Great Opium war that destroyed the old order in China and had annexed much of Manchuria afterwards giving them an ice free port in the Pacific at Port Arthur. Russia had also gain strong influence in the Joseon Kingdom (Korea). Which under Russian supervision would be transformed into the Korean Empire in March of 1834 as it began to adopt western industry and weaponry and military tactics.

By the beginning of the 1830’s Czar Michael II had been on the Throne for fourteen years and his vision of a new Russia started to take shape. The freed serfs had been granted lands if they wanted it but many were encouraged to move to the cities were the developing factories needed labor. Under the Ministry of Industrial Production and Development factories offered good steady wages even during the cold Russian winters in which no farm work could be done, adding to this in 1837, Russia became the first country in the Industrialized world to have a state mandated 90 hour work week. 1837 would also see the competing of the Moscow and Black Sea Railway which had begun construction in 1825, after importing six steam engines from Britain, gauged to Russia’s extra wide gauge track at five ft, nine inches wide. The Rail line was 1,026 miles long and had been built in two sections one running south from Moscow to Kiev and the other running north from Sevastopol to Kiev. The St. Petersburg and Moscow Railway would also be completed in 1839 having started later as would the Moscow and Minsk Railway. Russia had also established its first locomotive works in 1834 The Imperial Locomotive Factory with locations in Moscow, Kiev and St. Petersburg. Micheal would also encourage the Russian Textile and Iron/Steal working industries.



Then in 1839 Micheal II issued an edict to the Ministry of Railroad Development in which he called for a Railroad to be built to connect Moscow with Port Author and Vladivostok in the Russian Far East. Isidor Koshkin the head of the Ministry of Railroad Development would spend the next 5 years darning up the Trans Siberian Railway Program. When it was issued in 1844 It would establish no less than four state owned or partially state owned Railroads that would have the task to make the Czar's Dream a reality. with the Rail line not being completed until 1873 in the last years of Micheal's Reign.

Micheal II also saw the need to reform the Russian Imperial Army. Micheal’s primary reason for doing this was to build the moral of the average soldier, create a professional officer corps, and to use the army as a means to take the Russian peasants out of their traditional village farms and create the educated manpower base that the budding Russian Industries needed. To achieve this he cut the number of years that each conscript had to serve from 10 years of active service to 4 years of active service and an addition 3 as an active reservist. During the years as an active reservist soldiers alternate weeks of training and drilling with weeks of technical classes training them for industrial jobs Micheal would open a slew of regional officer academies based upon the military academies in Prussia, France, and Britain. He also mandated that every senior officer attend one tactical and strategic class every two years. No new officer commissions would be awarded to anyone without a diploma from on of the Imperial Military academies starting in 1834 the year the first classes would graduate. The Imperial Army would also begin converting their rifles and muskets to cap lock models and the rifles would be rebored to fire the .58 caliber wolfshot bullet. However for the most part the average Russian soldier was armed with smooth bore muskets. The navy would see the Imperial fleet expanded and the Pacific Fleet created in 1831 and then expanded greatly in 1836 when gold was discovered in the Yukon River valley. This super strong gold rush would bring the Russian Treasury much needed gold reserves after Micheal's reform programs had nearly exhausted it.

In an era where the old order was falling in line with the march of Constitutionalism Michael II and his reforms would fall well short of the bar. Micheal would create and implement a Constitution on March 27, 1838. This constitution created and a unicameral elected legislature known as the Imperial Council. The Imperial Council at 800 seats; of these seats 400 were directly elected by all Russian males and had served in the military, or owned at least two acres land. The remaining 400 were appointed by the Czar. Under the Constitution the Imperial Council could pass any law it wanted to but nothing became a law without the Czar's approval. Second the Czar could issue Imperial Edicts whenever he wanted, there was legally no difference between a law created in the Imperial Council and approved by the Czar's and an Imperial Edict. The Czar also named the Premier the head of the Imperial Council. The first election held in September of 1839 would see the Constitutional Democrat Party and the Orthodox Peasants Party as the two big winners the CDP carrying many of the cities and the OPD carrying the countryside districts. Czar Micheal II would use most of his seats for the Imperial Unity Party which supported the Czar Position and of which Micheal was the head. He would award a larger number of seats to the winner of the election the Constitutional Democratic Party and give the last fifty seats he had to the runner up in the general election the Orthodox Peasants Party. In keeping with the will of the general election Micheal would appoint the leader of the CDP Dmitry Bychkov of St. Petersburg as the First Premier of the Russian Empire, even though the Imperial Unity Party had the most seats on the Imperial Council, according to Micheal as he was the head of the party it was not in the running form the Premiership.

Been wondering if there will be a Korea or Japan update? Seems you have something in store for the Joseon Kingdom (Korea).
Yes Asia has felt my butterflies in swarms. Japan has been affected in the France 1810-1820 chapter the Rosebud treaty gave the French a colony on the home islands and allowed the French to station 40,000 troops outside of that colony and opened Japan up to french trade.

Same chapter saw France help Thailand conquer Laos and Cambodia while the French colonized Vietnam. Thailand is a French ally not puppet.

And Korea well what the Russians intentions are remains to be seen.
Next chapter takes us to the fun oligarchy known as the Republic of Louisiana
 
Also when dealing with Asian countries with the exception of Thailand/Siam I will not be using the Imperial Era names, this is due exclusively to the fact that I have no clue how to make them and be anything close enough to realistic with them. I exclude because they are all Rama I, II, III, IV ect. If someone knows how they are derived and can help me come up with realistic regal names for China and Japan then I will gladly accept like @isabella did with the way Russian names are derived. (and I'm mostly sure I'm not completely butchering them anymore.)

I'm not trying to offend anyone by saying example emperor bob of china I don't want to disrespect some of the oldest cultures in the world either.

You have put the wrong name for Micheal’s Empress (likely the one of her father)...
