    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.

  4. 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...

  6. 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.

    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...

  11. 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...
  12. 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...
  13. Demographics of a surviving Austria-Hungary?

    WW1 still happens somewhat similar to OTL, but without diving too much into details, Austria-Hungary remains completely intact following the war. Based on hindsight and on pre-war trends, how could the demographics of Austria-Hungary look like by the early 21th century? How big could the...

  17. Feasibility of Grossdeutchland

    Was Grossdeutchland feasible at all (1840s-1860s)? There were debates over it, that led to the idea never materializing, but could this have actually worked? And if so, what POD could happen to form it?

  19. AHC: Revive the League of the Three Emperors

    Is it possible at all with a 1900 POD, to have Russia's alliance with France fall out and having the League of Three Emperors be revived? If this alliance was reformed would they be beatable by any other possible Alliance? Surely WW1 would be butterflied away.
