How? Was it annexed by Switzerland after WWI? (since in OTL it was actually specified in the treaty of Versailles that Liechtenstein (they wrote the name wrong, BTW) would remain independent, or somehow it was annexed on the Treaty of Vienna or when the German Confederation end? (in OTL the first had Liechtenstein remain independnet as a gift to the ruling prince, a major Austrian general and diplomat in the Napoleonic Wars who also ruled over vast fiefdoms in Austria and Bohemia; while the second had Liechtenstein's independence specifically reafirmed in the treaty that ended the German Confederation)
How did Southern Germany become republican, wasn't Bavaria one of the regions that supported the return of monarchy the most in Germany at the time (while the House of Wittlesbach was even persecuted by the Nazis because of their anti-nazist sentiments)?
Raetia (southern Germany) is an area that is going to get explored in greater detail, but yes support for the return of monarchy in those regions was high in the post-war period. And the modern states were the result of divisions of the occupation zone into Baden, Wurttemberg, Bavaria, Swabia and Franconia. The former three are sub-national monarchies, while the latter are republics. Plus Nuremberg gets separated off as the capital city.The description gives three sub-national monarchies. I'm assuming that this is Baden, Wurttemberg and Bavaria, with Bavarian Swabia and Bavarian Franconia being republics.
Who are the monarchs of Venezuela?
Venezuela is a republic in the present day, but its history is a blend of OTL Venezuela and Greece with an extra helping of batshit crazy.And more importantly, are they still a monarchy in the present day?
So the Morgenthau plan was adopted in this TL.
A variant of the OTL Morgenthau plan was adopted yes. However the economic part fell by the wayside with the advent of the Cold War. France had the Rhenish Protectorate but had to gradually disengage due to its colonial crises. Nowadays they are all developed and prosperous, and still fairly industrialised.Uhhh, no. All the German states are developed and prosperous despite being politically divded.
Thanks and thanks for catching that! It should line up nowpan german flag seems to show the incorrect eastern borders of brandenburg, otherwise 10/10 would read again
Oh definitelyAbout the Germanies, I believe that Rhineland and Raetia would get (so much) more tradition in terms of soccer than the rest (like Savoy in the Italian peninsula). Also, the UEFA Champions League slots' draft would be a hell to do it .
hmm isn't Luxemburgish a German dialect? And i thought both it and Lichtenstein were part of the HRE? maybe i am wrong.
Luxembourgish is a separate language. Yes Liechtenstein, Luxembourg (& Limburg) were part of the HRE and the German Confederation, however they never formed part of the German Empire or Nazi Germany - which is the main criteria for inclusion ITTL as a "German state".Afaik Norwegian is closer to Danish than Luxemburgish is to German. Bottom line is that OTL it is considered a separate language.
Why thank you I'll try not to let mine get too big!Well If my ego ever gets to big I can just look at this thread and it will collapse. But in all seriousness this is amazing and throws light on a period I was interested in ITTL.
Yes I have been inspired by @Thande and Look To The West, which is absolutely amazing! But I like to think I've put my own spin on itInspired by Look to the West I assume?
Here's the last post I did on Mexico. Most of it is stil valid canon, but subject to a pending review and update.How is Mexico ITL? Are they better or worse than OTL? Is there still as much corruption and crime?
It's in the works. However, my computer is struggling to handle completing it...
East Prussia, which is now New Israel, isn't counted as part of the geo-poltical region of "Germany" as it doesn't speak German and isn't ethnically German. It was weird Cold War condominium between Britain and the Soviets, that eventually became a neutral Jewish state.
Love a condominium. It would be great to see an infobox on this if you can (unless you've already done one and I missed it, in which case humble apologies).East Prussia, which is now New Israel, isn't counted as part of the geo-poltical region of "Germany" as it doesn't speak German and isn't ethnically German.
