    WI: England wins the Hundred Years War, and France joins the HRE.

    Sure hope this hasn’t been done. In the event of an English victory in the 100YW they regain the lands they lost at the Treaty of Albeville, and proclaiming the Angevin Empire restored. And France, after losing catastrophically, collapses into small states ruled by the Dukes and Lords. These...

    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

    No English Civil War

    I'm far from an expert in the topic, but I've been trying to understand how the English Civil War worked. How could it be avoided? Maybe Charles I wins against the Scotts in 1639 and is therefore not forced to convene the Parliaments. Maybe his support of the Huguenots at the Siege of La...
