French timelines and scenarios
TLs in which the country makes appearances
The Chaos TL
by Max Sinister
- France first rose to become strongest western European power, became an absolutist kingdom, later a republic after the dynasty died out, later declined and was divided between New Rome
, but later returned as a strong part of the Socialist Block
Fight and Be Right
- France undergoes various dramatic changes within its politics, mostly withdraws from the larger conflicts and eventually settles on being a liberal republic during the 1930s, electing a certain Italian-descended Alphonse Capone as its president and building a Trans-Saharan Railway in its North African colonies.
The Time of Crows
- Due to the horrifying spread and aftermath of the Reaping Plague, the French monarchy undergoes a rather different (and possbily even more sinister) French Revolution than in OTL.

- Among other things, the analogue of the French Revolution comes a few years earlier and takes on a more peaceful tone, with France remaining a monarchy, but with constitutional reforms and the Bourbons left as pure figureheads (á la the British monarchy). Due to less turmoil in the late 18th and early 19th century, France manages to continue building a vast overseas colonial empire, avoiding the decades-long setbacks it suffered in OTL. One of their most prized overseas colonies in the Pacific are the Southern/French Sandwich Islands (the southern half of the OTL Hawaiian Islands).
Protect and Survive
- Heavily devastated by The Exchange (particularly in its northern regions), parts of France still survive after the war. The country's provisional post-war government (mostly set up on a few ships of the French navy sailing in the Atlantic) manages to contact its counterpart in the United Kingdom fairly quickly after the war.
