  1. Napoleon accepts the Frankfurt Proposals

    ... and promptly dies. Suppose at Leipzig or sometime between then and the proposals being posed to Napoleon he is badly injured one way or another, enough to make him worry that he will be unable to take to the field again or even be near the front and as such he decides to accept the proposals...
  2. No war of 1812 - Anglo/Canadian-American relations?

    There's been a variety of threads lately on the war of 1812, with plenty of rather strong opinions being bandied about. Given the military realities however it seems difficult to greatly change the outcome, at least without a relatively early POD/massive screwing of one side or the other by...
  3. Multi-racial convicts?

    OTL the Brits sent to Australia convicts of largely British origin, but what if for whatever reason they decided to dump in Australia malcontents from all across the Empire? Why might they do this, and how would it affect the development of Australian society and the Empire in general?
  4. Maximum British or American victory in the War of 1812

    The War of 1812 is a fairly popular POD for giving either the Brits or Americans a decent beating, which is apparently more satisfying than the quasi-draw what we got IOTL, but what would be the maximum victory either side could expect to gain in this war specifically? American Canada? British...
  5. How well could Japan have fought the Allies if it wasn't engaged in China?

    Japan disengaging from China in order to fight the Western Allies seems fairly implausible, given that the purpose of the Pacific War was to acquire resources for the war in China, but I'm just wondering just how well Japan might have performed against the Allies if it had all its resources...
  6. HMS Calcutta isn't stupid and finds the Yarra River

    I've often wondered how Australian and most specifically Victorian history might have turned out if David Collins had some common sense and actually settled on a decent sized river as opposed to what now is called home by a bunch of cash upped bogans (Sorrento). IIRC the main reason the Port...
  7. Different locations for 'Canberra'

    Living in Canberra has plenty of benefits, but it's a huge pain getting anywhere from here. With a POD no later than the 1891 Constitutional Convention, what other sites could serve as the Australian Federal Capital? Anything up to and including Melbourne or Sydney counts, but bonus points if...
  8. Imperial Palaiologoi inherit Montferrat?

    Would it be at all feasible for the Palaiologoi in Constantinople to inherit the March if Montferrat sometime before/immediately after the fall of Constantinople? If so would such an inheritance lead to Montferrat falling under Roman/Byzantine suzerainty, or even allow a legal continuation of...
