    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...

  3. 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...
  5. What's the worst possible outcome if the Persians conquered Greece?

    I made a youtube video where I'm trying to create videos in sets of two. One where I create the worst possible timeline of a change in history, and another where I create the best possible timeline after a change in history. Any thoughts on how you might've done it? Feedback and discussion is...
  6. What if the Ten Thousand conquered Persia?

    I'm talking about this campaign here. Ten thousand Greek mercenaries were hired by Cyrus the Younger, in an attempt to overthrow his brother to take over the Persian empire. Cyrus died in the first battle, which ultimately left Clearchus and the Ten Thousand stranded in Persian territory, before...

    centaurs Race

    What if centaurs from Greek mythology where real and they where immortal and there leader is Chiron and they are living in Greece
  8. 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?

    WI: 19th century Greece confined to the Peloponnese

    What if the Greek nation-state, being recognized as such in the early half of the 19th century by the Ottomans and the great powers, remained confined to the Peloponnese peninsula (perhaps through less military success or through less favorable diplomacy by its sponsors) instead of extending...
  11. King Leopold I of.....Greece?

    Though I think he would have opted to reign under the name George, the man who would become Belgium's first king in OTL was offered previously, and passed on the throne that went to Otto of Bavaria. Suppose Leopold had become King of Greece, does he fare better than Otto did, and what becomes of...
  12. How could European countries in the 19th century modernise agriculture?

    So a common problem for countries always seems to be lack of modern agriculture, and here I'm specifically referring to Greece. Wikipedia says: So how could a country such as Greece modernise their agriculture in the 19th century? They clearly don't have the government funding to do it, but...

    AHQ/WI: Alternate Greek Junta

    On the 21st of April of 1967, a group of far right anti-communist Colonels launched a coup against the caretaker government that was to lead the country to elections in May. While it was successful, and the king did give his blessings to their government, he was planning a coup of his own, with...

    DBWI: The war against Turkey did not erupt

    As we all know, the intensity of competition for gas in the eastern Mediterranean has escalated since discoveries began between 2016 and 2017 until military skirmishes erupted between Egypt and Turkey in late 2017 on the one hand and Greece and Cyprus against Turkey on the other hand and...

    1974 Greco-Turkish war

    I know threads like this have been up but I’d like to get some more point of veiws on what would happen if Greece and turkey escalated the Cyprus conflict into war. The best pod I could find is that Greece doesn’t recall submarines sent attack the Turkish landing forces and subsequently the...
  17. Impact of a Greek victory in the Turkish War of Independence on the British Royal Family?

    You could write a book on what a Greek victory would've meant for Europe, you could even write a book on why a Greek victory was impossible, but those aren't the subjects I want to discuss. If Greece had won the Greek monarchy wouldn't have been abolished. That means that Prince Andrew never...
  18. Without Mussolini's Invasion, Could Greece Have Remained Neutral in WWII?

    Assume that Mussolini either doesn't feel as much of a need to demonstrate Italian might in comparison to the blitzkrieg, or alternatively, that the Italian government makes a different strategic assessment in the late 1930s that doesn't see Greece as a "vital enemy"-so the war of 1940 doesn't...
  19. Present-day domestic impact of losing Greco-Turkish war for Turkey

    Setting: Suppose through the Greco-Turkish war or together with some later events, Greece ends up taking Thrace, Constantinople, and Smyrna. Possibly a population exchange of some sort would have taken place, though this may or may not need to be as total as IOTL. Now Greece and Turkey have a...

    Could a victorious Greece on the greco turkish war adopt a new roman identity?

    Let's say that Greece wins the greco-turkish war and get's smyrna and other parts of asia minor, but to prevent a wank the turks keep constantinople. on the mid 20s a Mussolini-like figure takes of turkey and try to be a imperialist buffon, thus creates a crisis invading Smyrna to reconquer...
