  1. WI/Plausibility Check : Roman Empire Sends a Foederati to “reconquer” Britain

    Could the Romans have used a foederati tribe or just a migration era tribe like the Goths ,Vandals , Alans , Franks , any tribe really etc. To reconquer Britain (or parts of it ) akin to that of Zeno sending Theodoric the reconquer Italy or akin to that of the Visigoths crushing the Silingi...

    AHC: Earlier Channel 4

    Simply put, have the British TV network Channel 4 first come onto the air at a plausible date earlier than 1982. Ideally, after the launch of ITV in 1955.

  5. WE'LL MEET AGAIN

    THE LAST POST Truro, November 28th 1907 John Powell rubbed his hands together. It was cold this morning, oddly cold for Cornwall. They’d run out of tea months back so there was only acorn-coffee to warm them. It was bitter and with no sugar to sweeten it, men gulped the piping liquid as if it...
  6. Prussia defeated in Seven Years War: Results outside Germany?

    "While we had France for an enemy, Germany was the scene to employ and baffle her arms." - William Pitt, 1st Earl of Chatham The European theater of the Seven Years' War was almost entirely centered around Prussia, the mighty Iron Kingdom against whom three European Great Powers - France...

    Charles XII of Sweden marries Louisa Maria Stuart - Personal union between Sweden and Britain?

    admittedly this a very unlikely scenario, but let's say it goes ahead in 1710 when Charles XII was in the Ottoman court. They have a single son who survives through the normal dangers of childhood in the era. The family returns to Sweden in 1715 with Charles XII and Charles XII is still killed...

    WI: England Practice Sialic Law

    OTL, male preference was the defacto succession law of England and thus Britain. However, England inherited much of her early legal and political system from its Norman conquerors. What if, among this, was an official practice of sialic/male-only primogeniture? Obviously no Elizabeth I and thus...

    What would a British/French “denazification” look like?

    Presuming there is a POD sometime between 1914 and 1917, which causes the Entente to either lose the Great War with the Central Powers coming out victorious, or a peace treaty is signed with neither side coming out truly on top of the other. Either way it results in a situation like that of OTL...

    No Louisianna Purchase; Fate of Mexico?

    OTL, the louisianna purchase was rather controversial when brought to the senate. People accused jefferson of a power grab, or saying the country had too much land and not enough money to justify the purchase. Say in TTL, those voices are stronger, and as a result, the US doesn't get Louisianna...

    Rear Admiral Sir Horace Hood survives the Battle of Jutland

    As I was working on some more of my naval fiction stories recently, I was once more sidetracked (as one inevitably happens to be) by reading again about Rear Admiral Sir Horace Hood who was lost when HMS Invincible blew up at Jutland. Looking through his career history, he appears to have been...

    Questions: Goals and Aftermath of a successful Indian Rebellion of 1857

    The Indian Rebellion is one of the most famous events in British/Indian History. It saw the formal end of the Mughal Empire, large scale atrocities on both sides, and saw the end of EIC Rule in India, transitioning to direct British control of the British Raj. Unrealistically, the rebellion was...

    London 1917; '... I speak for all people's on this fair isle, I speak for all in any class, I speak for this nation when I say; Britain must leave the war!' The crowds erupted in cheers to the words of Oswald Mosley. He was a famous figure, having gained a reputation for his bravery and...

    Could the Stuart rule of Britain be restored through a invasion?

    I have been wondering about something like a integralist Ultrareactionary France somehow invading the UK, or maybe if somehow the German empire land and overrun the islands (since the Stuart claimant is German). What do you think?

    What if Newfoundland was never intergrated into Canada?

    It's what it says on the tin. What would happen if the Dominion of Newfoundland never decided to join up with Canada and regained its parliamentary privileges? I know the final referendum on the matter had less than a 5% difference between restoration of the Newfoundlandic parliament or...
  16. Delayed Indian independence

    Nevermind the reasons (which have been litigated at length here, please do feel free to add your thoughts there). Say the Tories win the 1945 general election. I think it's fairly obvious to everyone (with the possible exception of Churchill) that India will be getting independence in short...
  17. Irish Sea Tunnel

    As fanciful as it now seems, there were genuine proposals to build a fixed link between Great Britain and Ireland in the 1890s, notably by (Northern) Irish engineer Luke Livingston Macassey. Macassey offered seven different options for such a link, including two solid bridges and five tunnels...
  18. Suez and Vietnam

    Just a question I've been pondering for a while, and wanted to get the wider forum's thoughts on this. If the United States, for whatever reason, "backs" Britain during the Suez Crisis (which in reality just means not taking an actively anti-British stance during the crisis), does this have any...

    How Do We Prevent The Worst Of England's Actions With Scotland, Ireland, and Wales?

    The english naturally have a pretty nasty reputation, and of course it all started in Ireland and Scotland (and wales but i think they got to them a bit later). Despite this they historically would often try to say Britain is a nation of equals. Your goal is to make this true- at least in the...

    AHC: Italian Britain

    One of the things that impress me is the amount of italians and italo-americans in the US today and even during all it's history, being a protestant anglo-saxon country and all. I've been wanting a scenario with England for a while but all I could think of is catholic UKs that have been done...
