  1. AH Question - multiple Hungarian states

    In a question totally unrelated to a project that I am totally not currently working on *cough*, I wanted the board's opinion on whether having multiple ethnic-Hungarian states would be possible. One option I had considered was a catholic west Hungarian state, and an orthodox east Hungarian...
  2. AH question on Bavaria following the Napoleonic War

    Given Bavaria was pro-French for much of the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars (mostly for pragmatic reasons), how likely would it be for it to end up smaller than IOTL following the Congress of Vienna? Assume Napoleon still gets defeated, more or less per IOTL, if that helps. Saxony was...
  3. How plausible are the proposed states of Australia?

    For reasons totally unconnected to a TL that I am totally not currently writing...*eyes dart back and forth*, I am looking into the various proposed states of Australia, as listed here. Even though some of those proposals date back to pre-1900, I put the thread here as Australia became...
  4. PC question - more provinces for the Confederation of Canada

    I've been doing some reading which is in no way related to a TL I am totally not writing, and came across proposals to split Canada East (formerly Lower Canada) into three provinces in the period leading up to the formation of the Confederation of Canada - the province of Montreal, the Eastern...
  5. PC: question about the Austro-Prussian war

    A question that is completely unrelated to a TL that I am totally not currently in the process of writing: IOTL, as a result of the Prussians winning the Austro-Prussian war, it annexed: Schleswig-Holstein Hesse-Kassel Nassau Hannover Frankfurt parts of Hesse-Darmstadt a small snippet of...
  6. I never promised you a rose garden – a TILAW by Analytical Engine

    Hello, what’s this then? It’s a TILAW. Oh God, not another one. How many does the board have now? Never you mind. I just wanted to try my hand at one. But you’ll suck. You’re not Thande or Meadow – you’ve never done one before. I’m going to do it anyway. <looks at title> What –...
  7. Reds vs. Blues, an alternate Cold War

    Preface Yes, after many, many (many) months (if not years :o), Analytical Engine presents a new timeline. Hurray! Since I finally have the time to actually write the damn thing, having finished my exams for this year (phew!), I might as well get started. Anyway, back to my much alluded to...
  8. WI - Samuel J. Tilden won the US Presidential election of 1876?

    Hi all. I was looking up US presidential elections, as one does, and found that the one for 1876 was really close. Really, really close. Down to the wire, possible acts of (minor) corruption close. Tilden won the popular vote, and lost the electoral vote to Hayes by 1. There were two seperate...
  9. WI: Austrian participation in the Second Partition of Poland

    Sorry if this has already come up a quintillion times before. I'd been pondering this for a while, particularly what territories Austria would nab - probably southern parts of New Galicia (OTL 3rd partition lands) and southern parts of OTL Russian secon partition territory. Any one else have...
  10. AHC: "Ba'athist" Iran

    With Iran having an alternate fate in my ST TL (Communist in this case), I was thinking "WI: Iran had a Ba'athist-style government instead of the Shia-islamist it has IOTL". Presumably, it would need for the modernist tendancies of the last Shah to either be significantly reduced or...
  11. WI: A world without Reganomics

    Any ideas on how the western world might be without Reganomics? (I'm not making any value judgements one way or the other on either the man himself, or his economic ideas.) Thoughts?
  12. Question re: American Canada

    Partially due to all of the recent threads on American Quebec/Nova Scotia, I've been wondering on the following question: WI: the Americans captured and held Montreal during the revolution, but NOT Quebec? Any thoughts?
  13. I've just come accross this on wikipedia:

    I wonder if anyone has any thoughts on it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polish-Czechoslovakian_confederation
  14. Question - When did the Phoenician/Canaanite decline to obscurity?

    After watching Bible's Burried Secrets by Dr Francesca Stavrakopoulou, I got thinking about Ba'al-based religion. I've been looking all over, and I can't seem to find when the Phoenician/Canaanite religions declined into oblivion. Greek and Roman writers comment on them, and it probably still...
  15. TimeRiders - The Doomsday Code

    Note to British fans of the series, TimeRiders - The Doomsday Code is out. Alex Scarrow once again brings alternate history to the masses. :) I've almost finished it myself. It's interesting in as much as it more or less inverts the traditional Robin Hood story for its purposes. However...
  16. Fate of a surviving Temple of Solomon?

    Ok, so WI: either the Second Temple isn't destroyed, or someone builds a Third, and the Roman Empire, or at least the eastern part of it, stil becomes Christian- what happens to it? Would the Christians seize it and turn it into a cathedral, or work out some sort of time-share? Any thoughts?
  17. WI: Different partition of India

    Hold on, don't leave just yet. I was wondering WI: there was a bigger Pakistan but no Bangladesh? Basically, Pakistan has Kashmir and all of the Punjab (the OTL Indian province of Punjab), but India has greater Bengal... Any thoughts?
  18. Alternate religious developments in the US

    I was wondering (and because I need to know this for my Strangerverse-Britwank TL :o) how the development of religious denominations would be like in a still-British USA, since it would, technically, have an established religion (CoE). Would that affect anything (if at all)? Oh, and by the way...
  19. Hamburger Gold Coast

    Inspired by this post by V-J, how would you get one or more colonies established by the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg? ;) Any thoughts?
  20. WI: Mandeanism replaces/instead of Christianity

    WI: Mandeanism became the dominant religion that originated in Palestine? *faints with excitement* :p
