    Philosophy in an Achaemenid Greece?

    Suppose that you have your run of the mill Achaemenid success story in Greece. Thermopylae fails to hold the Achaemenids for even a few hours, the allied Greek navy gets smashed at Salamis and Themistocles killed, and with both land and naval dominance, the Peloponnese, as well as some Aegean...

    Palaiologos in 1800 Greece

    When Greece regained independence in the 800' they trie to find a surviving descendant of the last byzantine emperor Costantine XI as Wikipedia also states: "Beyond Constantine's martyrdom, the Palaiologos dynasty had a lasting impact on the Greeks throughout the centuries of Ottoman rule...
  3. Enosis (Union of Greece and Cyprus) after 1950?

    This thread is inspired by a rather obscure WI I raised in another thread that proved to be surprisingly productive, and I'd like to focus more on the subject in the title, that of Enosis with a POD after 1950. Calling in @Tanaka did nothing wrong and @Lascaris, who did the bulk of the...
  4. WI: Leuchtenberg Greece?

    Upon the deposition of the first monarch to rule Greece post-independence, the childless Otto of Bavaria, the Great Powers were divided as to who should rule Greece. Many Greeks themselves apparently wanted Prince Alfred, Duke of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, a son of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert...
  5. Greek WI: Georgios Papandreou wasn't dismissed in 1965?

    Georgios Papandreou was an influential liberal/social democratic Greek politician who served as Prime Minister of his country for three times, the longest stint lasting from February 1964 to July 1965, when he was dismissed by king Constantine II in what was called the Apostasia. What if he had...

    WI: Indo-Iranians invade Greece?

    The basic idea of this thread is that among the Indo-Iranian peoples, a fourth branch(if you count Nuristani) emerges around 2000 BC, when it starts to migrate westward, towards Western Ukraine and the Carpathians, bypassing them, eventually invading Greece during the Bronze Age collapse. A...
  7. Possible Planning a Greek/Balkan Campaign by Napoelon in 1798?

    I have heard people say that there were rumors that Napoleon's Egyptian Expedition was originally aimed for the Balkans/Greece in particular. After the French took over the Ionian Islands in 1797, it seems like they established contacts with many of the powerful autonomous rulers of the Ottoman...

    WI: Corinth as the premier Classical Greek power?

    When many people think of Classical Greece, they think of the two most well-known city-states, Athens and Sparta. And although for good reason, they were far from the only ones to gain a position of power, and it is very plausible that another one might have achieved the same position of power...

    WI: Messenians win the First Messenian War?

    The Spartans are famous for many things, and their society was unique among the Greek city-states for a number of reasons. As the entire reason it could maintain such a formidable army, it relied heavily on a force of hereditary slaves, known as helots. But the foundation for it all came in the...

    AHC: A 19th Century Neo-Byzantine Empire

    Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to devise a scenario in which Neo-Byzantine Empire is created with a pod from 1815 onwards. This state would essentially be a modern Greek state with a national identity more focused around the idea of Greeks being Romans (Rhomaoi) rather than...

  14. WI: Instead of declaring war on France, Mussolini invades Greece in May 1940?

    So IOTL Mussolini declared war on France and Britain in June 1940, after it was obvious that France was finished. Then, a few months later, in October 1940, he started his disastrous invasion of Greece, which eventually led to British and German interventions. But what if Mussolini decides to...

    Mussolini doesn't "invade" Greece consequences

    Hi! I know there have been a lot of threads about this event but generally everyone speaks about the effect on Barbarossa and survival of Italian Libya. My main question is what happens to Yugoslavia and Bulgaria, both dragged in the war because of the Italian Invasion. Both countries were...

Feedback and discussion is...

  19. What was a best use for Elephants in the ancient world?

    War Elephants have been a controversial subject. One the one hand, they're cool and terrifying proto-tanks that can rout entire armies out of fear. On the other hand, they're outrageously expensive to maintain in significant numbers, and many of the large nations of antiquity developed reliable...

    AHC: Kingdom of Greece joins the Scramble for Africa (EDIT: fixed error in thread title)

    As the title says. How could it happen? What lands could Greece claim (or maybe buy from other powers)? How do you think the Greek colonial administration would look like compared to the other European powers of the day?
