    AHC: This Portuguese Empire

    OTL, while Portugal was a big player on the world stage for its time (perhaps the fist true world player,) it nonetheless never quite reached this height. came short by a rather wide margin in fact, never having much more than Ceuta, failing to establish much in labrador/Canada, lost its spice...

    AHCWI: Portuguese Deep South

    Portugal's most noted colony is of course brazil. Given the size, this is no surprise. it is also one of the only places in the new world that Portugal could settle without breaking tordesillas However, given that the deep south at least bares a few superficial traits with brazil due to climate...
  3. Wank Spanish Empire: Spanish conquer all of Americas

    Spainish at Tordesillas push border to middle of Atlantic and get Brazil In New England they establish shipyards since Latin America lacks timber Armada rules the western Atlantic preventing any non Spanish colonies From Newfoundland to Straits of Magellan they build naval forts for Armada...
  4. AHC/WI: Southern Brazil/Paraná Basin independent country

    WI/AHC: Spanish Amazonas

    So, this is for a later POD on a timeline I'm writing. In OTL, Spain claimed the Amazon for themselves, but during the 18th Century, after redrawing of borders, the Portuguese controlled the Amazon. What if, the Spanish had explored and settled more of the Amazon during the 16th Century...
  7. No Dutch Portuguese War

    How would Portugal and her colonies develop without this conflict? For a POD I can think of two immediately that work. 1. No Iberian Union, either Sebastian does not perish in a war with Morocco, or someone other than Phillip manages to inherit the kingdom. 2. The Netherlands is not inherited...
  8. Tasso Jereissati president

    Tasso played a big role in the Plano Real and the rise of the PSDB, and (at least according to Ciro Gomes) he was the natural presidential candidate in 1994 until FHC decided to impose himself. Taking Ciro's word as truth, say FHC either backs down or is backed down(according to Ciro he opposed...
  9. Brazilian WI: Ciro Gomes is elected president of Brazil in 2002?

    For a brief time during the first round of the 2002 Brazilian presidential race, former governor of Ceará and former minister of finance Ciro Gomes either led the polls or was just barely behind Lula, the favourite candidate and OTL winner. However, Ciro's numbers collapsed and he eventually got...
  10. Brazilian WI: Fernando Henrique Cardoso became mayor of São Paulo in 1985?

    Nine years before he ran for (and won) the presidency of Brasil, Fernando Henrique Cardoso (or just FHC) ran for mayor of São Paulo. However, although he led the polls from day one right up until election day, he was narrowly defeated by former president Jânio Quadros in a huge upset. What if...

    WI: Full scale US invasion of Brazil in 1964.

    In 1964 we had the US sponsored coup in Brazil. To jump a long boring discussion, the government of João Goulart wanted to do some very capitalist reforms on the country, so a minor faction of the army and some sectors of the civil society painted him as a commie, even tough him paradoxically...
  12. Rio de Janeiro wasn't captured by the French in 1711?

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Rio_de_Janeiro After defeating a French raid the previous year, the port of Rio de Janeiro was captured in September 1711 by a much larger fleet led by the experienced corsair René Duguay-Trouin and occupied by his troops until December, when they...
  13. What is the earliest plausible date for the Braganzas to go to Brazil?

    Like it says on the tin. I suppose they could've done it during the Fantastic War, assuming the Spanish invasion is more successful and they capture Lisbon? Would they return to Europe as soon as things cooled down, or would they stay in America for longer, like how John VI did? @Lusitania
  14. AHC/WI: Brazilian United Americas

    Whenever someone thinks of a united North and South America, they (understandably) think immediately of it being led by the US. But what if it was united by their more southern neighbor? Starting in 1822, how can we get a Brazilian-led unified Americas by the year 2200 (just thought giving 400...
  15. Brazilian WI: Cristovam Buarque is reelected governor of Brasília in 1998?

  16. Best case scenario for Brazil after a failed 1964 coup?

    Say that the coup against João Goulart fails for whatever reason - say more generals remain loyal, or the putchists control fewer important states (Carlos Lacerda, Magalhães Pinto, Ademar de Barros and Ildo Meneghetti all won their races by thin margins) - and the president remains in office...
  17. Brazilian dictatorship WI: Costa e Silva is assassinated?

    On July 25, 1966, a bomb went blew up in the Guararapes Airport, near Recife, killing 2 people and wounding 14 others. However, the main target of the attack, army general and future Brazilian dictator Artur da Costa e Silva, wasn't present because his plane malfunctioned and he traveled to...

    WI: More Powers Successfully Colonized Parts of Brazil?

    Brazil, despite being an utterly massive region, only had one lasting colonial master- Portugal. However, other powers both tried their hand at carving regions of influence and settlementd- notably, the Dutch in the north and the French down south. So that begs the question, what if all three...
