    There were some grandiose plans for Kolomenskoye renovation, but these would likely go for Peterhof references.

    It would be especially funny if Paris is not getting a renovation and staying a badly planned mess, but Moscow gets one because of Nick I order love.

    Probably Nicholas is going to pull a what Nap III did to Paris IOTL?

    What if Queen Victoria had married Marthinus Wessel Pretorius instead of Prince Albert?

    What if Queen Victoria had married Marthinus Wessel Pretorius instead of Prince Albert?

    That said, the Korean princess thing despite long being declared a symbol of ASB marriage PoDs is more plausible that this, because the obstacle lies in mentality while by law this is plausible match. Here I see at least a few contradictions to 1779 (?) Royal Marriages law.

    What if Queen Victoria had married Marthinus Wessel Pretorius instead of Prince Albert?

    The idea was more along the lines of butterflying away Russo-Japanese war as we know it. Bolsheviks are rather obscure as of year 1900. But still, the point about "this is not EU4" stands.

    What if Queen Victoria had married Marthinus Wessel Pretorius instead of Prince Albert?

    This reminds me of a memetic Korean princess thread from Russian AH board when a dude argued for freakin' six pages that the best way for House of Romanov to stay in power is for Nicholas II marrying a Korean princess instead of Alice of Hesse. Because Far East ports and stuff.

    Most likely Palatinate either does not get a spare girl or it gets Ulrika Eleonora and TTL Mary York goes to Sweden for advantages of double alliance. I can see her uncle/dad/brother being adventurous enough to go for this match.

    A William and Mary Timeline: For Want Of An Heir

    Rest in peace. I think that her reign would be called the Second Elisabethan Age in the future.

    Unless he's a certain character from "Monday begins on Saturday", you need to correct the date.

    It screws with abbreviations pretty frequently, as AI sometimes misunderstands context. For example, translating ПЖ (right ventricle/RV) as "pancreas" (because ПЖ also stands for "поджелудочная железа" and AI is more leaning towards this meaning even if this is a cardiology article).

    Darling, the raw GT is embarassing there. It took кн. (knyaz/Prince) and interpreted it as книга /book. Is it the check "Does anyone actually read my stuff?"

    So "Empress Elisabeth" is a plausible name for a ship. Just not for OTL Elisabeth Petrovna but for Elisabeth Alexeevna. After all, HMS Royal Spouse did exist aplenty in Royal Navy, and Russians can copy the habit. P.S. And apparently did OTL, did not see your post, sorry for being an ignoramus.

    We don't know the name of TTL wife of Alexander, but IOTL she was christened as Elisabeth Alexeevna. And a Princess Elisabeth did exist TTL - a daughter of Peter I and Maria Kantemir.

    A William and Mary Timeline: For Want Of An Heir

    Maine is unlikely to be promoted, as Louis disliked his "Monsieur in all but name" ambitions IOTL, so he is unlikely to trust him re. delicate matters unlike Conde (Duc de Bourbon ATM) who is a friend of his.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Louis,_Prince_of_Cond%C3%A9_(1668%E2%80%931710) Not the best diplomacy-wise, but his wife is the favoritest half-sibling of the King (IOTL co-founder of Cabal de Meudon) so Duke and Duchess of Bourbon are in the inner circle of the new King.

    A William and Mary Timeline: For Want Of An Heir

    We've discussed that reason for TTL Texel being lost is that TTL Louis XV listens to (rather snobbish) advisors who say that promoting commoner to commander (Bart was ennobled only after winning Texel) is a shit idea and Châteaurenault should command instead, biting him in the ass hard.

    List of Alternate Monarchs and Aristocratic Lineage

    Unavailability of Charlotte Amalie of Hesse-Kassel for Christian (complete with Lizelotte's father feud with his brother who is Willem of Orange's stepfather ITTL) results in Sophie Amalie of Brunswick looking for Liselotte as a match for her son. Given how Lizelotte was brought up at the court...
