    France Wins Out In India, Where Does Britain Go?

    Say France wins the Battle of Plassey and the Indian theater of the 7 years war as a whole, becoming the dominant European force in the subcontinent. the European and American theaters are unaffected. Where does the BEIC go from there? Is it dissolved? Start going into Indonesia again and maybe...

    What If William III and Mary Had A Living Son?

    OTL Queen Mary II of England and her Prince Consort William III had no surviving children, meaning the house of Orange-Nassau remained solely a Dutch house. But what if they had produced a living heir? We'll say they name him James after her father and have him 1679, about two years into their...

  6. Domestic British Politics without WW1?

    How would domestic British politics develop without intervention in WW1? Im going to assume that the Archduke is still dies and Europe descends into war but Britain stays out. But say things in Ireland reach a head before this occurs and Britain is too preoccupied with Ireland to intervene. Or...
  7. Central Powers victory

    During WW1 there were many close calls, opportunities not fully exploited and a certain degree of logistical failures on both sides but especially the Central Powers one. So my question is: in which battle/campaign the Central Powers, if history took a different turn, could have defeated the...
  8. Impact of British Alaska on Canadian Confederation and British Columbia

    In OTL, the USA purchased Alaska from the Russian Empire in 1867. But, what if Britain expressed more interest and was able to purchase it from the Russians? How does this affect the formation of the Canadian Confederation and how is British Columbia in particular affected by this? Do they join...
  9. War of 1812 complete disaster for Britain

    How could the War of 1812 be a complete disaster for Britain? (It was a draw IRL). I am curious since I think I am going to make a new timeline based on this...

    DBAHC: The US Surpasses Britain In Influence?

    Ooc: this is a double blind, where we ask an alternate history question... from an alternate history. We ask what if the south broke away, people in tl 191 ask what if the south didn't. And to establish something: britain has lost india, British Arabia, Egypt and the Suez, but retains the rest...

    Mosley and Hitler

    Axis victory scenarios and similar WW2 histories often depict him as a close friend to Hitler after coming in power or being put in power as a quislingist leader by Hitler after the surrender of Britain. This seems very unlikely for several reasons. Mosley's ideas weren't particularly extreme...

    Hitler wanted genocide of British and French?

    Wikipedia says that high-ranking Nazi official Otto Bräutigam claimed in his book that he had the opportunity to read a personal report by quartermaster-general Eduard Wagner regarding a discussion with Heinrich Himmler, in which Himmler had expressed the intention to exterminate about 80% of...

    How can the British hold their European land?

    I’m thinking of making map of Europe/the World if England/UK decided to hold on tighter to their continental holdings, and try to grasp new ones. How much land could you get Britain to own in Europe? After 1400

    WI: Britain And France Force Belgium Out of the Kongo?

    when the kongo free state was confiscated from king Leopold, the belgian government stopped trade from the territory while they got things sorted. This upset Britain and France, who had let Belgium (and Leopold) have the colony as long as the major powers were allowed to trade. So when belgium...

    Latin Britain?

    What if the Latin influence in the British Isle stayed or was larger. Maybe the Saxons and Jutes and other Germanic peoples have less of an impact and only make a small influence.
  16. A Better Budgeted British WW1

    Lets call it a BBB WW1 because why not? Based on the flurry of recent threads involving a change in US support for the Entente/Aliies. So here is the question: WW1 hurt Britain financially. That much is clear. So, ignoring the occasionally rabid debate over how bad the situation in 1916/1917...

    A Better Decade - a British TL.
    Threadmarks: Chapter 1 - McKeena

    Chapter 1 While Britain had indeed come out of the Great War victorious, it was by no means an awe inspiring victory nor one that managed to make Britain stronger in the long run. Its war debt with America was extremely high which had turned Britain from a net creditor to a net debtor. Britain...

    AHC: A World of Kings Through 2000

    The challenge is that with a POD (or several, which is most likely needed) no earlier than May 6, 1910, and no later than November 9, 1923, the following statements are true as of January 1, 2000: -The British Empire is the most powerful entity on Earth, headed by the descendants of King George...
