How much would 2023 be different?
How would Africa’s development be affected? Sierra Leone and Liberia arose out of a desire to send former slaves to Africa
British Monarchists and Anti-American Leftists be like:
This does indirectly lead to the question on if this changes much of anything on the British monarchy (or monarchy elsewhere). The war was about things done by Parliament, not about the power of Parliament vs. the King, after all.
There are nearly two and a half centuries between the Revolution and the present. That's time for a lot of stuff, especially when George III was not a figurehead.It's a common rhetorical device amongst American propagandists that they were fighting a war against Tyrannical King George.
Whereas anyone with even the slightest knowledge of British Constitutional history since at least the 1650s knows that by the time the Revolution erupted, the Monarch has only a minimal input in policy, amd their true war was with parliament and the government.
I'd imagine little would really change in the relationship between monarch and parliament, in the UK at least. The drift in power from the crown to parliament would continue much as it did in real life.
But does these events prevent a general Scramble? Sans Napoleon the Ottomans are likely to be in short-term (1770-1870) better shape if the Balkans aren’t divided between Austria, Russia and New Byzantium, which means no French AlgeriaIf no American independence equals no French Revolution equals no Napoleonic War, then South Africa remains Dutch, which means a Boer/Afrikaaner ascendancy in Southern Africa without the amelioration of British settlers which served to dampen the largely Afrikaaner influenced pro Apartheid tendency that occurred IOTL.
Which on other words, means Apartheid South Africa x10, probably earlier
