    PC : Jordan profiting of the Syrian civil war to create a kingdom of greater Syria

    Hashemite have historically tried many time to create a « Hashemite Kingdom of Greater Syria » how would it be doable for Abdullah II and the Jordanian military to try profit of the Crisis early on to create it ? I guess they could play a narrative with them being Sunni to unite the rebel...
  2. Jordan's monarchy is overthrown in 1958?

    What if Jordanian king Hussein suffered the fate of his cousin, Faisal of Iraq, and was toppled by a military coup the same year (1958) that established a republic? Would keeping Suleiman Nabulsi, who pushed for closer ties with Nasserist Egypt, as prime minister (he was removed in 1957 after...
  3. Did the Arab Kingdom of Syria ever have a chance to control all the lands it claimed?

    Like it says on the tin. Could Faisal's kingdom of Syria ever have a clear shot at controlling all the lands it desired to, which stretched from modern day Syria all the way to Palestine and Jordan? Or would the European powers prevent that from happening? Would preventing or scrapping the...

    WI : Syrian Victory At The Battle of Maysalun 1920

    Let’s say the battle of Maysalun https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Maysalun turn on a total disaster for the French with most of the army killed or captured something like the battle of Annual the Pod isn’t really important but would be something like Faisal more determined to fight...

    WI: A Hashemite Kingdom of Israel?

    Say, for the sake of argument, the Faisal-Weizmann Agreement (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Faisal%E2%80%93Weizmann_Agreement) went a bit differently, and the Knesset voted to elect Faisal of Iraq and Syria to be King of Israel. How would this work? Could an Austro-Hungarian-style dual monarchy...
  6. [Retired...For Now] Of Swords and Sand: A Hashemite Arabia Scenario
    Threadmarks: Part 1

    Hello, everyone. I’m new to the AH community and this is my first post. The scenario will reach from 1908 to present, a large project for me. The end result will be a Hashemite-led Arab state, an independent Kurdistan, and a Megali Greece. The Second World War and Cold War section of this...
  7. Sand and Steel: The Story of the Modern Middle East (TL)
    Threadmarks: The Carlton Hotel

    (Preface: I am new to the forum, and I thought it would be fun to join because I've recently been becoming a major alternate history nerd. I love the idea of world-building, and especially building a world based off of an alternate timeline of our own. I've been coming up with this timeline for...
  8. A Good Jordanian POD

    What would be a good POD for a TL focusing on the modern Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan that could potentially make it into a major regional power? This means any point after 25 May 1946.

    Possible capital of a Hashemite-ruled Arabia

    As the question (and the poll) said, what particular city could be the capital of a Hashemite Kingdom of Arabia, given the PoD (e.g. India Office was favored by the British government and the Hashemites have a better relationship with the merchant elite of Hejaz). Could it impact the economic...

    WI: Kingdom of Hejaz remains independent

    In OTL, the Kingdom of Hejaz was an independent state with a Hashemite royal family that existed for a couple years before it was conquered by the Saudis. It was this conquest that created the modern state of Saudi Arabia and reduced the number of Hashemite kingdoms from three to two. How would...
  11. [Middle East AH] - Israel loses the '48 War

    See above. Israel loses the war, Palestine has been carved up occupation-wise by a number of neighboring countries while they decide what's going to happen. So... what does happen? Do the Jews somehow flee Israel en-masse? Get protection from the Hashemites? Do the Hashemites stake a claim to...
  12. WI: all the Hashemite Kingdoms survive?

    Basically what the title says. What if the Hashemites managed to keep their thrones in Iraq, Syria and Hejaz (and possibly take beat the Saudi Sultanate of Nejd)? How would this affect the middle east both in the short and long terms? Would this create a more stable region or would it be more...
