  1. WI: Nestorian Mongols

    Around the time of the mongol invasion of the middle east, european christians all thought that it was the legendary eastern christian Prester John. This was not the case as mongols were not christians and certainly had to alliance, formal or not, with Christianity. What if Nestorian efforts...
  2. WI: Musso stays out of Ethiopia

    As it says on the tin. What would Italy gain from staying out of Ethiopia during the 1930s? What would they loose? I feel that Italy would gain a lot from not invading- the money, manpower, and time saved could be better put towards modernizing the army which would make for a more potent...
  3. AHC: Viable war-baloons

    I've seen many threads here about how a Napoleonic balloon invasion has a snowflake's chance in hell of working out. That being said, what technological PODs exist that would make air baloons a viable option not only for a Napoleonic invasion of Britain, but for wars in general?
  4. No Manzikert, no Crusade?

    If the battle of Manzikert is avoided (Arp Aslan never wanted battle) and a peace settlement is acheived between the Romans and the Turks, would the 1st Crusade happen? How long before it would, if it happens at all?
  5. AHC: More Orthodox Countries

    With a POD or PODS before 1071, have more nations accept the Orthodox Rite of Christianity, and stay that way for a good amount of time. I was thinking about Harald Hardrada converting while in the Varangian Guard, and then becoming the King of Norway, Denmark, and England, and then...
  6. Postumus: Call of the West v2

    As some of you may know, my first timeline about Postumus has ended. This is because I was not happy with the style of writing I was going with, and I recently discovered more about the man, whose full name is M. Cassianus Latinius Postumus. I all of my naivete, I only used online sources for...
  7. Crusader Mecenaries

    The plan of Alexios 1 Komnenos with the First Crusade was to simply use the crusaders as mercenaries. OTL, they acted more way too independently for his plans to work. My question is: What if the First Crusaders were more subservient to Alexios? Would the First Crusade be more or less...
  8. Postumus: Call of the West

    I’d like to thank Basileus444 for inspiring me to create my own timeline. At first, I was trying to make a TL about a much, much stronger Ethiopia, but I could not find a good POD to do so. However, I was researching the later Roman Empire and found a man name Postumus, Emperor of the Empire of...
  9. Plausibility Check: Joint Ethiopian-Byzantine reconquest of Egypt

    I've finally come to the conclusion that I'm writing a TL about Ethiopia, or similar Kingdoms in the area. My overall plan is to find one or more PODs that have Ethiopia: 1: Control the beginning of the Nile 2: Have enough of a military to invade Egypt. But that's where things get...
