  1. No Napoleon:Span of Bourbon restoration

    If Napoleon was never born how early would bourbon restoration happen ? How long would they stay on the throne?

    PC/WI: "Napoleonic" victory but with Lafayette

    We all know Napoleon Bonaparte, the revolutionary general who proclaimed himself Emperor and used his military to spread both the Revolution's ideals and his empire. Let's not talk about him. Let's talk about the Marquis of Lafayette, a figure I find quite underrated. The "hero of both worlds"...

    WI: Revolutionary republican Spain?

    With a PoD between 1789 and 1815, is it possible for Spain to fall to a French-style republican revolution (deposing the monarchy and nobility, instituting a new national identity, commitment to spreading the rebellion, etc.), mostly through internal instability, a republican French invasion, or...

    WI: Egyptian Sister Republic?

    Apologies to Edward Said's ghost. What would the estabilished political regime of a successful Egyptian Expedition after 1798 look like? Assume that the French naval squadron is not defeated by Nelson at the Battle of the Nile. Because of the continued threat of the French Mediterranean navy...
  5. [POD discussion] The French Revolution stays domestic

    So in the fall of 1791, the balance of opinion in the Legislative Assembly in Paris was against the war party, the Brissotins. While the Royal reputation was in the toilet, Louis' docility to anti emigre legislation had taken the wind out of the pro war sails, and the froth of anger was dying...
  6. George III permenantly mad in 1789; long term consequences?

    So I've been reading Janice Hadlow's excellent A Royal Experiment, a biography on the marriages of the Hanoverian Royal line,just finished the chapter on George III's 1788-89 madness and its got me thinking; what if, instead of recovering, George III went permanently mad in 1789? How would...

    Most plausibly successful Egyptian Expedition (1798-1801)

    So, assume that Napoleon Bonaparte and Jean-Baptiste Kléber are more successful in their Egyptian Expedition. As a PoD, i propose a French victory at the Battle of The Nile (1798), or at least no destruction of the French fleet at it. The expeditionary army's supply problem is vastly reduced as...

    No Napoleon: Effects on French Revolutionary Wars?

    Let's just say Nappy never exists. Ignoring all the later effects of this, would the outcome of the F.R.W been pretty much OTL, or less successful?
  10. Lafayette, we have come.

    The Revolution happens differently. Lafayette looks onto the French chaos. But now there was a new wrinkle. There was a dictator - Lafayette. Lafayette looks onto France and asks, "Now what?"

    The Portuguese Colonial Empire without Napoleon

    So, let's say that Napoleon remains an obscure general. The French Directory is overthrown by someone else, and a fairly stable Republican France controls much of Germany and Italy by the end of the French Revolutionary Wars. Spain continues to dither between France and the Coalition, and when...

    AHC: Preserve the Roman Republic (1798)

    During the French Revolutionary Wars, Revolutionary France overthrew the Papal States, in its place creating a nation known as the Roman Republic. Yeah, Roman Republic. Anyways, it had consuls, as well as a Senate. However, what it did not have was popular support, as it was a French puppet...
