    AHC:This "Germany"

    So alternate unifications of Germany are fascinating to me and many others on this forum. One I always find interesting is a kliendeusthland without purssia (or tradiing it for german austria). So I was thinking, what kind of post-westphallian PODs would w need to get this germany, which instead...
  5. AHC: Earlier Kingdom of Italy, run by the Habsburg

    I have sometimes wondered if it was possible to have the Habsburg create a functioning, autonomous Kingdom of Italy, with one of their collateral lines picked to run. It should be possible, I guess, from the 1700s, when so many of the minor states in Italy came under their sway. I guess the...
  6. AHC/WI: Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg were merged with Austria after WW2 and formed the Danube Federation?

    Even after being destroyed during WW2 and split in half for 45 years, Germany is still Europes largest economy. So what if the Allies agreed that Germany is too dangerous to be left alive and decided that Baden-Württemberg and Bavaria will be merged with Austria? This idea isn't even that...

    WI: Hitler serves in Austria-Hungary?

    IOTL, Hitler very nearly was rejected from the German army, but because of an administrative error, his lack of German citizenship and his having Austrian citizenship technically disqualifying him from serving in the army was not revealed, probably due to an administrative error. The rest, we...

    WI: Habsburgs promote the Venetian language

    From what I have read the old area where Venetian is spoken is at one point called Austria, I think the Habsburgs could take advantage of this in some way.

  10. Philip Habsburg dies in 1498

    As title says-Philip, son of HRE Maximilian, dies just after birth of his first child Eleanor (thus both Habsburg-Trastamara marriages have similar unhappy ending). What are consequences? Joanna of Castile IMHO returns to Spain and is then married to Manuel of Portugal. Meanwhile what would...
  11. No Ottomans, effects on Habsburgs/HRE?

    Hello all, there has been plenty of no Ottoman/Osmani screw timelines, and all involve clouds of butterflies. So I was wondering what would be the specific effects on the Habsburg dynasty and the Holy Roman Empire as a whole? I don't think that the specifics are too important. Whether...

  13. Victory at Kolin/Surrender of Prague WI?

    Frederick's opening moves in the Seven Years War put the Austrians in a tough spot, removing a major ally and shutting their main army in Prague. However, their victory at Kolin forced him to relinquish his siege and the whole position in Bohemia. However, if Frederick had won at Kolin, could...

    DBWI: Why Didnt "Nationalism" Take Off?

    So I was digging around some weird ideologies for my timeline, and I found this one called "nationalism," basically the gist of it is that people who are linguistically, culturally, and ethnically similar should unite under their own state. Like, a german empire other than the HRE or a slavic...

  18. Prussian worst case scenario in 7YW, what happens to Poland?

    Prussia loses the Seven Years' War and is practically dismembered. Silesia goes to the Habsburgs, Cottbus to Saxony, much of Pommerania with Stettin to Sweden and East Prussia to Russia, who trades it for Kurland&Semigalia with the PLC. In such circumstances, what could await the PLC in the...
  19. Would the Habsburgs had fared better or worse without Royal Hungary?

    POD: John Szapolyai achieves early victory against Ferdinand in 1527, who has to retreat from the country. An agreement is reached, which (once again) garantuees Habsburg succession upon the childless death of the hungarian king. This does not occur. Mostly focusing on Austria and the...
