Miscellaneous <1900 (Alternate) History Thread

What year are we in?
1874 to 1876. My thinking right now is to have a former Confederate (different than William Loring) that is more experienced in fighting in mountainous terrain arrive and help train Egyptian troops, but I'm sure there's more to an Egyptian victory than which American helps them.
 
Supposing you had a delayed American revolution where only the areas south of the mason Dixon line became independent, do you think that the MegaCanada that remained would talk about a Chicago-Quebec City corridor instead of Windsor to Quebec City?
 
What consequences could there have been had James ii of England never converted to Catholicism and instead remained a high church Anglican?
 
what if Zemsky Sobor of 1613 elected a democracy instead of the Romanov monarchy and retained power for itself taking power as the governing body of russia
 
What would happen if Arthur died of natural causes during Katherine's journey to England, so she lands on shore and finds out that her intended husband is dead? Would she be married off to Henry Jr (as Elizabeth is alive and Henry Sr therefore isn't free)? Would they ship her back? @isabella

Henry is years away from being legally able to marry so she would need to wait him reaching the legal age (Isabella and Fernando would likely push for that solution) but then everything would depend by the timing as Henry VII will likely want the payment of the full dowry before the wedding so things can go as OTL

Well she waited for him IOTL so is not so big a deal...
Would Ferdinand and Isabella pay the dowry though? Seeing as she is NOT yet married and will not be for a long time

The first part was sent with Katherine and the payment of the second one, well that was the reason for which the betrothal was called off in OTL at Isabella’s death so…

As I just said, the second part, would it be paid if she isn't going to be married for half a decade yet?
 
And if Isabella didn't die before paying?
Then the wedding will go ahead as planned as the payment of the dowry was the reason for its collapse (because Henry VII had been bullied in accepting the match for his second son as he reputed Catherine way too old for Henry so he would NOT celebrate it without receiving the full dowry)

Ah thank you
 
What If Arthur and Katherine married as otl, but Prince Henry and a chunk of court all died before Arthur himself did in 1502?

With both brothers dead who will follow King Henry VII?

Well either Margaret will become Queen after her father and will likely still marry James IV as OTL or Henry VII will remarry and leave the crown to his eldest son by his second wife (who will likely need to marry a girl with Yorkist blood for securing better his crown against the de la Poles, the Poles and the Courtenays
