    Treating this semi-plausibly (which I really shouldn't be btw), I'd draw people's attention to the massive Nile on the map. This clearly isn't just poor mapping but is actually a clue to the real story here. The Nile being so massive means two things: 1. Its flood zone is even bigger, which...

    Hotspur Percy wins (WI)?

    Well, if we're making the argument that making oneself de facto ruler is the same as declaring oneself king then Simon de Montfort set the precedent. That said, there is a key difference in perception. Making yourself de facto ruler is very different to making yourself actually king. Taking...

    Hotspur Percy wins (WI)?

    I disagree. There is a quite a difference, only technical and psychological perhaps, between making oneself de facto ruler of England, which was hardly uncommon, and declaring yourself King.

    Hotspur Percy wins (WI)?

    That's because the wikipedia map is terrible. This is a better map of the Identure: (My own work)

    Hotspur Percy wins (WI)?

    You're quite correct, it would appeared I've misremembered the details. I'm fairly sure there was a second Percy army on the way to help Hotspur and unable to arrive before he was defeated but it seems I've forgotten who was leading it.

    Hotspur Percy wins (WI)?

    Ok yes, he technically didn't but he has set a precedent for overthrowing the king cause you don't like him.

    Hotspur Percy wins (WI)?

    Some critique here, Glyndwr probably won't march his army to Shrewsbury (too far primarily) but there was a second Percy army, under Hotspur's uncle, Sir Thomas Percy, that was marching to help him IOTL. He didn't get there in time IOTL because Henry IV had managed to reach Shrewsbury first and...

    The fact that China isn't British pink is very disappointing :P Jokes, aside those Africa and India are something else.

    Fair enough. Maps just for fun are entirely fair.

    Absolutely, I'm mainly asking if there is/what is the original POD. I realise that's not very clear tho. :coldsweat:

    WI Japan flipped Prussia and Britain?

    That's not how the Japanese thought, in their view, and not without some reason having beaten Russia and participated in WWI and Versailles, they were one of the big boys now. This also a misunderstanding. Firstly because the British were able to dominate banking and insurance in part because...

    WI Japan flipped Prussia and Britain?

    You've misunderstood, it was the best option for what the main Japanese interest groups at the time wanted to do.

    Um, so unless there's some background POD here, there's no way the Safavids were gonna manage this in 1730. They're a total mess by that point and just six years from falling completely.
