    The last photograph of Roman von Ungern-Sternberg alive before he was carried away and executed for treason against the Motherland and attempting to destabilize the government.

    After Savinkov's rise to power, the Mad Baron refused to recognize the Vozhd as the leader of Russia, and declared that he would only follow the will of Gramd Duke Kirill Romanov, the legitimate heir to the Russian throne and, in Sternberg's view, the only rightful ruler of Russia. Following this decision, he would try to make Mongolia less reliant on the aid of foreign nations through a series of modernization programs throughout the country. He would also expand his realm by invading and conquering the Ma Clique, Kumul Khanate, and the Xinjiang Clique. This would later result in further unrest in these lands, and Sternberg responded through a series of ethnic cleansings that killed tens of thousands of Chinese in Sternberg's domain.

    Eventually, Savinkov decided to rid himself of this minor thorn in his side, and began a surprise invasion of Mongolia in 1941. The Mad Baron's armies were completely overwhelmed by the modernized Russian army, and he would be captured during the assault on Urga. The Mad Baron was given a swift military trial, where he was found guilty of all charges and sentenced to death. Sternberg was dragged into the middle of the city, and he was swiftly executed in front of a large crowd. His body was then burned, leaving nothing behind of the former ruler of Mongolia. Sternberg's death would completely unravel the country, as his conquered lands managed to defeat his remaining men and reclaim their independence, and Mongolia would be officially annexed into the Russian State a week after his execution.

    Miklós Horthy de Nagybánya (1868-1961) a famous admiral of the Austro-Hungarian and later Danubian Navy. He served in the Navy for over fifty years from 1896 until his retirement at the age of 79 in 1947, shortly after the end of the Second Weltkrieg. It should be noted that much of his service during the Fifth Balkan War and the Second Weltkrieg was mostly administrative due to his advanced age, although he did a lot to coordinate Danubian naval actions against the Serbian and Greek navies during the Fifth Balkan War and the Socialist Italian and French navies during the Second Weltkrieg.

    Celebrations take place in Paris on September 3, 1988, the day of the fall of the Paris Fence, the re-unification of Paris and the re-unification of France under the newly established Fifth Republic of France. The re-unification of France under the Republic of France was a major victory for the Accord and the Latin League/Western European Economic Alliance. This and the fall of the Kingdom of France was somewhat of a setback for the German Empire and the Reichspakt. For many, this was also seen as a victory of French liberal republicanism over German conservative monarchism.

    Photo of fictional German dictator, Adolf Hitler. In an alternate history series: The rise of the Fatherland, it follows a reality in where the central powers lost world war 1, leading to Germany's utter humiliation and defeat at the hands of the victorious entente, and the rise of a 'fascist' state in Germany. Hitler is played by Bruno Granz.

    The dragon Fafnir in the Nibelungen filmtrilogy (Roland Emmerich 2000-2003) The first movie in the trilogy Das Rheingold with a budget of 75 million reichsmark was the most expensive movie ever to come out of Babelsberg till that point. Inspired by the books by Michael Ende, Emmerich made a set of movies that were a revolution in special effects. Critics claimed that this came at the cost of storytelling, but the public loved it. The receipts in Germany alone were already thrice the budget, which increased with every sequel.

    John Nance Garner speaking happily with his allies after learning of his victory in the 1936 election.
    During the 1936 election, none of the four main candidates were able to secure a majority in the Electoral College, which led to the vote being passed to the House of Representatives. Due to Garner's allies and connections within the Senate, which he gained during his years as Speaker of the House, he was able to gain a majority of the votes and emerged as the victor of the 1936 presidential election, despite winning few states during the early stages of the election.

    However, Garner's presidency would only go on to exacerbate the instability throughout the country, and his refusal to compromise with the SPA or AFP would lead to the Second American Civil War.

    German Stormtroopers advancing in a suburb of Smolensk. April 7th, 1944.

    The German and Austrian drive into Russia that that begun in 1942, after the Battle of Warsaw, was finally halted by the Russians in Smolensk. Russian Tank Divisions beat back German attempts to encircle the city, and forced the army to fight in the city. Smolensk was the first case of heavy urban combat that German troops had been in since Warsaw. Every other urban center had been skirted by panzers and Panzer-Grenadiers and were encircled. The Russians didn't give up any part of Smolensk without a fight, and the city would be destroyed in the fighting. The Battle of Smolensk raged for 4 months, giving the Germans time to get their logistics in order, and they went to try and encircle the city again in June, but the Russians were able to retreat in good order, saving them from annihilation in a pocket.

    President John F. Kennedy of the New England Republic (Unrecognized as the United States of America) giving his "I Am A Chicagoan" speech on May 1st, 1963, in Chicago, Commonwealth of America. Kennedy's speech was an attempt to ease tensions between New England and Syndicalist America after the May Day Bombings in Boston the year before, but the fact that John was the third New England Kennedy president in a row (Preceded by Joseph Sr. from New England's foundation in 1940 to 1948 and Joseph Jr. from 1948 to 1956), and that his younger brother Robert was poised to become the fourth in the 1964 New England elections, meant that his words fell mostly on deaf ears as Chairman Farrell Dobbs of the Commonwealth continued to rail against the "Kingdom of New England" - a pejorative name that was only reinforced by the continuing heavy Canadian presence in Boston. John would be assassinated later that year as he was riding in his presidential motorcade on November 22nd by Lee Harvey Oswald - a Totalist radical and former Red National Guard private - triggering the "Kennedy Crisis" between Canada and Syndicalist America. Many today argue that there is evidence to suggest that John was assassinated by Canadian agents seeking to manufacture outrage against the American Commonwealth, or that New England hawks - including some other members of the Kennedy family - plotted against him due to his attempts at making peace with the syndicalists; the fact that Oswald was killed by James Joseph Bulger Jr. - a member of the Irish Mob in Boston - before he could be officially interrogated only reinforced such ideas. Official reports have dismissed these conspiracy theories, but they manage to hold strong amongst many.

    English poster for the movie "Graf Dracula",the austrian movie adaption of Bram Stoker's famous novel.
    Released in 1955 and directed by Alfred Deésy , the movie was directly financiated by the ministry of culture of the Danube Federation with the purpouse of promoting abroad both the culture and the traditions of the country.
    While the movie is generally considered one of the best horror movies of the 20th century, it has been often accused of an excessive nationalist tone and to be a piece of propaganda for the Danube Federation: not only the entire setting was moved from Britain to Hungary ( with most of the action taking place in Budapest), but many critics also pointed out that both Dracula and his servants ( including the gypsies) very often speak with an heavy romanian accent.
    The movie was also criticised for changing the nationality of most of the characters involved, with the only exception being Abraham Van Helsing, played by dutch actor Johannes Heesters .
    The movie is also famous for being the film debut of austrian actor Maximilian Shell as Jonatan Harker (here an austrian lawyer called Jonas Harrer) and the first european movie of Emanuel Goldemberg ( here playing the famous vampire), following his exile from the United States in 1951.

    Nikolai Ryzhkov, the final Vozdh of Russia from 1986, after the death of Vozdh Andrey Vlasov, until his resignation from power in 1999, after which the Russian Republic was re-established and democracy would begin to gradually return to Russia after over sixty years of dictatorship and National Populism. His reign as Vozdh was marked by numerous reforms that liberalized the Russian economy, opened up Russia to foreign markets, allowed foreign corporations to operate within Russia, freed numerous political dissidents, opened up political discourse, increased local autonomy for numerous ethnic groups within the Russian State, among other such things, all in an attempt to in his words; "Bring the Russian State into the modern age."

    Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, leader of the radical-wing of the NRPR and the main rival to Nikolai Ryzhkov in the aftermath of the death of Andrey Vlasov in 1986 and the subsequent years of Ryzhkov's rule. After the failure Moscow Coup of 1996, he was sentenced to life imprisonment for his role in conspiring against the rule of Nikolai Ryzhkov. He died in prison in 2004.

    [​IMG]
    Dmitry Yazov, leader of the failed Moscow Coup of 1996, a failed coup attempt against the reformist rule of Nikolai Ryzhkov and in favor of installing Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn as the Vozdh of Russia. The coup and the violence in Moscow, some of the worst since the Russian Civil War, and which many international observers feared would lead to a Third Russian Civil War, lasted from May 21 to June 14, 1996.

    Neo-Bolshevist, Communist, Syndicalist and Marxist-Leninist militants take advantage of the coup attempt and take control of a public building in Moscow. After the forces of Yazov were defeated, the government forces would eventually strike out against the numerous leftist militants active throughout Moscow, with the militants being either killed or imprisoned after surrendering to the government.

    Ivan Silayev, provisional head of state of the Russian State and the first President of the Russian Republic after it was re-established after sixty-two years on October 14, 1999. He would be democratically elected in 2000, and was thus the first democratically elected leader of Russia since Alexander Kerensky. Over the next twenty years, Russia would find itself on a long and gradual path towards re-molding itself as a democratic nation. As of 2019, Russia is once again a democratic nation, though ethnic tensions, electoral fraud and the influence of wealthy oligarchs continue to be sometimes serious threats to the democracy of the nation.

    Syndicalist propaganda comic featuring 'Felix the Cat' produced during the American Civil War

    While the character of Felix the Cat, having made his first debut in 1919, originally had no political connotations of any kind. However, during the Second American Civil War, he was quickly appropriated by the CSA in their own propaganda, both due to him already being a widely recognised cultural icon by the 1930s thanks to all the animated short films in which he was featured in, and the character being a black cat, just as the IWW's own 'sabo-tabby' was.

    While the CSA was eventually defeated in the Second Civil War, by that point Felix the Cat's association with the far-left had already been deeply ingrained into public consciousness, not just in the United States, but also the rest of the world thanks to the propaganda effort of the Internationale's member states, with 'sabo-tabby' and Felix the Cat had became one in the same. This continued even after Otto Messmer, the co-creator of the
    character, had publicly expressed his dismay at Felix being used as a symbol of international syndicalism , claiming that he was forced by the CSA to continue his work of producing new Felix comics during the war from his home in New Jersey, and has since disavowed the chararter.

    Even all into the 21st century, fan-made Felix the Cat comics can still often be found on internet message boards and online forums as a symbol associated with the far-left, with him advocating for various act of workplace sabotage and political violence against members of 'the capitalist system of murder, theft, and exploitation'.
