    AHQ: Gothic Italy survives; religious development in Francia?

    An interesting incident of our timeline is that Clovis I, the Merovingian conqueror of Gaul, converted from paganism to the Nicene Orthodoxy of his wife, Clotilde, rather than the Arianism espoused by the Gothic and Burgundian kingdoms to his south. He did this in 496, significantly before...

    AHC: The Empire of Louis the Pious divided into 5

    So OTL the rebellions of his sons paved the way for Louis the Pious's Francian Roman Empire to be divided into 3, subsequently causing imperial power to decline until Otto of East Francia (Germany) conquered Italy and claimed the imperial mantle & title. In your opinion what's the best way to...
  3. The Visigoths win at Vouillé?

    The Battle of Vouillé was, IOTL, a devastating defeat for the Visigothic Kingdom, which not only lost its king, Alaric II (killed in action), but was also forced to give up also half of its territory to the Franks, including the capital city of Toulouse. According to Wikipedia, the kingdom went...

    WI: This Treaty of Verdun?

    assuming Lothair dies as a kid, or never exists at all, could something like this be the eventual division of the Carolingian Empire? what might that entail for the two portions of Frankia? Would this result in a vague france wank, given the wealth of Italy, or will they be doomed to even...

    Split East & West Francias, with Middle Francian Roman Empire

    So OTL both West and East Francian kingdoms initially fractured before reforming, whilst Middle Francia split leaving nearly a century before Italy/Lombardy and its occasional imperial title were added to Otto's East Francia. So, how do we keep East and West Francias divided while imperial...

    WI: Charlemagne Conquers Eastern Spain Instead of Germany?

    OTL, Charlemagne conquered much of Germany, but his attempts to oust the Umayyad from spain failed. Now, i don't know much military history at all, much less during this period, but what if his fortunes were reversed? What if Charlemagne was able to establish a strong base in Iberia, but was...

    DBAHC: Wank The Franks

    Ignoring that amusing title, the Franks were a notable Germanic tribe in gaul, centered around the northern portion. They were never the masters of gaul, the power mainly being in Visogothic Aquitaine. But the Franks were no slouches either, with strong generalship being prominent in many of...

    Kent as a Frankish fief?

    IOTL, the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Kent had close ties with continental Europe due to its strategic location at the Strait of Dover. Indeed, it was one of the first areas of Anglo-Saxon England to be christianized, receiving Frankish missionaries as early as the 5th century. So, my question is...

    WI: No king Clovis I?

    Clovis I was the first Frankish king of any weight to throw around post-Roman Europe. His campaigns were crucial for the expansion of the Frankish state against threats such as the Alemanni on the Rhine frontier, the Soissons state in Neustria, and lastly, the Visigothic kingdom's province in...

    Final Light: A Carolingian Timeline
    Threadmarks: CHAPTER 1: The Death of a King

    After lurking for so long in these forums, I've decided to make my own timeline. The style is obviously heavily inspired by Planet of Hats' amazing and awesome Al-Andalus timeline, and I thank him here for his contributions. ---------------- "Right action is better than knowledge; but in order...
  13. WI: Saint Rurik?

    Okay, so this might be a stretch, but since so much of the man is clouded in myth, I think it might happen. What if Rurik, not long after his conquest of Novgorod (but before taking Kiev) meets a group of Catholic missionaries from Francia and decides for political reasons to convert to...

    Alternate divisions of alternate divisions of the Frankish Imperium

    OTL the Carolingian realm was divided into 3 then Middle Francia itself divided. The resultant toing and froing lead to the Kingdom of France (West Francia) and the Holy Roman Empire (containing Arelat, Italy, and East-Francia/Germany). What plausible ATL divisions and subsequent divisions and...
  15. Plausibility Check: Could the Frankish Kingdom develop stiff resistance in post-Roman Gaul?

    I made a map about a rebellion of the Romano-Gaulish population and "upper class" against their Frankish rulers, forming a kingdom which claimed to be the heir to Rome. This rebellion would happen sometime in the seventh century. The primary reason why I created this map was too see how the...
  16. What if Charlemagne invaded Scandinavia?

    According to the Royal Frankish Annals, in the year 810 Charlemagne was preparing to invade Denmark, but the death of their King Gudfred caused Charlemagne to call off the invasion. What if Gudfred lived, and the Franks invaded Denmark? If Charlemagne conquered Denmark, it seems possible that...
  17. Maximum extent of Umayyad expansion in Francia, and vice versa?

    Although the Battle of Tours was not the clear turning point it is often thought to be, the Umayyads still made it pretty far into the Frankish realm(s). The Battle of Tours, albeit mostly a raid, did have significant effects on the popularity of Charles Martel, the founder of the Carolingian...

    WI: Lothair II (of Lotharingia) has a legitimate heir?

    Firstly, for those of you unfamiliar with Lothair II, here's his Wikipedia page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lothair_II. Long story short, Lothair II was the second son of Emperor Lothair I who ended up inheriting the lands stretching from the Frisian coast south to the Duchy of Lorraine...
