    WI: The ERE never becomes iconoclast.

    So without the Holy Roman Empire as we know it, what could come of the Frankish Empire and of Germany?

    WI: The ERE never becomes iconoclast.

    Interesting. In what way? Could you elaborate?

    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?

    Thank you so much for the reply! So essentially, the Romans need to win the Battle of Carthage (698) and ally with Dihya. This would prevent Apsimarus from rebelling, indeed. Justinian is still a danger though, but who knows, his escape could be butterflied. What could the effects on Western...

    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

    I do like the sound of that! I think a surviving Bengal Sultanate could also help. Any idea on how we can achieve that?

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

    Indeed -- how would you facilitate the Islamization of Indochina, though?

    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...

    AHC: Muslim-majority Indochina

    Can anyone tell me more about the Bengal Sultanate, and how it could've potentially survived?

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

    Interesting. Though, that'd probably require Ibrahim to remain firmly seated. Any idea on how we can accomplish that?

    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...

    AHC: Muslim-majority Indochina

    So what I'm inferring here is that a surviving Bengal Sultanate is a good setup for a Muslim Indochina. I'm not too well-versed on its history; what would need to be done to prevent its downfall?

    AHC: Muslim-majority Indochina

    Gonna bump this one, it’s been a week or so

    AHC: Muslim-majority Indochina

    Interesting (sorry for late reply)! Any other ideas? All the ones currently here are insanely cool and I love them! But sheer curiosity alone makes me wonder if there are even more opportunities out there -- I love learning new things.

    Earliest possible unification of the Low Countries?

    Okay, that's a super interesting setup. Thanks for posting it!
