    WI: The ERE never becomes iconoclast.

    I'm honestly surprised to see that this PoD seems to be so rarely discussed; the majority of threads are about iconoclasm completely succeeding, sometimes even in Western Europe. But anyway: Suppose Leo III Syrus is successfully overthrown during his reign, either by Agallianos Kontoskeles in...

    WI: Leo I Thrax becomes sole Roman emperor

    From: WI Emperor Leo I declined to name Majorian as Western Roman Emperor in 457 AD? Leo I (Valerius Leo) was indeed a very influential emperor in the west. In fact, there were three instances where Leo was sole Roman emperor (461, 465-67, 472-73), and he was the one who appointed Anthemius as...

    WI: Leontius remains in power?

    Emperor (Flavius) Leontius "Leo" Augustus ruled the Eastern Roman Empire from 695 to 698. A very popular emperor, he had overthrown Justinian II Rhinotmetus, who alienated both nobles and common people with his despotic rule, land policies and taxation. When Justinian was brought before him in...

    AHC/WI: Indochina becomes Muslim-majority, Maritime SEA remains Hindu-Buddhist

    A while ago I made this thread: AHC: Muslim-majority Indochina. It gained quite some traction and interest before eventually dying off, which motivated to me to try something more unique. The objective of this AHC is once again to make Indochina a firmly Islamic region, but with a twist...

    WI: Heraclius moves the ERE's capital to Carthage?

    According to Runciman (1977), Heraclius I, Eastern Roman Emperor from 610 to 641, originally considered abandoning Constantinople in the war with Sassanid Persia. Constantinople had been suffering throughout the campaign against the Persians as grain was the primary source of food for the city...

    WI / AHC: Ramathipadi I / Sultan Ibrahim of Cambodia isn't overthrown

    Ramathipadi I is notably the only king of Cambodia in its history to convert to Islam, renaming himself to Sultan Ibrahim. He did this after being implored by his partner (and eventual wife and queen), Neak Moneang, who was of Cham and / or Malay blood. The two had a daughter, Princess Dav...

    Earliest possible unification of the Low Countries?

    What is the earliest point at which the Low Countries can be a unified, independent state? And how would this be accomplished? Ideally, I'm searching a way that leads to an independent state (so no unification under a foreign power) where Old or Middle Dutch is the main language or at least...

    AHC: Muslim-majority Indochina

    The challenge is to have Islam spread across Mainland Southeast Asia beyond Malaya and the Cham and become the majority religion (at least 60 - 70%). Bonus points if all five countries (Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia) are Muslim-majority. Vietnam alone also accords bonus points...

    AHC: Make Andorra have its own hereditary monarchy (no co-princes)

    The challenge is to make Andorra have its own monarchy that lasts (any PoD after its foundation in 805); it basically ends up a lot like OTL Monaco, being a tiny little statelet with its own monarchy, bordering but seperate from large countries, and probably being a tax paradise. There are no...

    AHC: France and the HRE swap places (France is a decentralized mess, the HRE is fully centralized)

    Everyone knows the Ancién Regime's French Kingdom as an, eventually, highly centralized kingdom, which shed nearly all of its fiefs and whose kings became the poster boys of absolutism and the divine right to rule. The neighbouring Holy Roman Empire, in the meantime, became a messy hodgepodge of...
