  1. WI: Who Succeeds Edward VIII in a Vichy UK

    Edward VIII was married to Wallis Simpson for 35 years but they had no children. In a tl where Britain loses WWII and George VI and other anti-German royals either escape or are executed, who will succeed a restored puppet Edward when he dies in 1972? Depending on succession laws, I believe the...

    Crown Imperial: An Alt British Monarchy
    Threadmarks: GIV: Part 1: Prince of Fools

    King George IV (1820 - 1827) NB: A Simplified Timeline of George IV's can be found by clicking here. Part One: The Prince of Fools Haddon Hall is a perfect example of the English country house. Tucked neatly in a bend in the River Wye near Bakewell in Derbyshire, it is acknowledged as one of...

    AHC: Prevent the British Monarchy from Losing its Power and Authority During the Victorian Era.

    It's often said that the Victorian Era was the period in which the Modern British Monarchy's Constitutional conventions took hold where the Monarch became more of an apolitical figurehead as power and authority shifted more towards Parliament and the Office of Prime Minister. I've heard that...
  4. What would happen to the monarchy if Britain turned fascist in the early 30s?

    Assuming this is a CP victory since it would obviously be ASB to do it along the likes of OTL. Does Edward and Wallace charm Oswald Mosely and his cronies or are they ousted like the German monarchy IOTL.
  5. Question: English royalty and name John

    This statement is repeated countless time on this forum-name John was not given among English Royal Family due to memory of John Lackland. But name 'John' was given to royal sons long after Softsword. It was common among Plantagenets and later also present among Yorks and Lancastrians. Also IIRC...
  6. Did the Great Reform Act start/cause the decline of the British Monarchy?

    So I've always heard that the passage of the 1832 Great Reform act is what started the decline of the British monarch's powers but is this true? I mean within two years of the Act William IV appointed a Prime Minister who wasn't from the majority party. The attempt failed, but that was due to...

    WI: Edward VIII abdicates the British throne in 1936, but *doesn't* abdicate as King of Canada?

    Just something I thought of. It looks like the Canadian throne has been separate from the British throne since 1931, and the Canadian government was fairly independent of the British government at that time (although Canada didn't gain complete independence until 1982). So, what if, when Edward...
  8. Relocating the British Monarchy to the Americas

    Perhaps recognizing the incredible potential of the Americas, and determining that it would eclipse the UK as it was, the monarchy declares a series of drastic changes. 1) The creation of the Kingdom of New England, the boundaries being the lands of the colonies 2) Movement of the Royal seat to...
