  1. WI: Ottomans march to Buda before fall of Belgrade

    No Operation Margarethe

    In March of 1944, over fears of secret meetings between the Hungarian government and the Allied powers, ordered the occupation of Hungary and disposal of then-Prime Minister Kallay.

  3. European Map of Bonaparte's Butterflies, A "Realistic" Napoleonic Victory Scenario + Lore

    Link to larger map here: I posted this to Reddit originally, but I figured here might be a better place to get discussion and possible feedback. I've never seen a Napoleon Alternate History that I liked. It was either extremely awesome but unrealistic (I.E Napoleon's World) or something like...
  4. DBWI: Hungary stays in WW2

  5. AH Question - multiple Hungarian states

    In a question totally unrelated to a project that I am totally not currently working on *cough*, I wanted the board's opinion on whether having multiple ethnic-Hungarian states would be possible. One option I had considered was a catholic west Hungarian state, and an orthodox east Hungarian...
  6. Corneliu Codreanu becomes the Leader of Romania in 1940, how does WWII unfolds?

    Want some food for thought for a TL in the making, Corneliu Codreanu survives his execution in 1938 and becomes the Căpitanul of Romania in 1940 instead of Antonescu. Codreanu was be a much more charismatic and extreme leader than Antonescu, but instead of going straight to the topic on how...

    AHC: Hungary As The Premier Eastern European Empire

    Hungary used to be a major power in eastern Europe, allied with the poles to keep the ottoman empire in check.

    Grand Duke of Lithuania Žygimantas Kęstutaitis, younger brother of Vytautas, was assassinated on 20 March 1440.

  10. Would the Habsburgs had fared better or worse without Royal Hungary?

    POD: John Szapolyai achieves early victory against Ferdinand in 1527, who has to retreat from the country. An agreement is reached, which (once again) garantuees Habsburg succession upon the childless death of the hungarian king. This does not occur. Mostly focusing on Austria and the...
  11. WI: The European Union doesn't incorporate former East Bloc countries as members?

    How do you think history would be different if the EU decides not to accept countries like Czechia, Slovakia, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Croatia, Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia? How do you think the political climate of these countries, and the Western EU states would be different if these...
  12. AHC: Make more countries have people who proclaim UFO-based mythical pasts among their Nationalists

    Some time ago I've read that many Western Nationalists have pretty dour and non-Esoteric views regarding their pasts, but there is a widespread view among Hungarian Nationalists, that Hungarians are so different from other people on Earth, because ultimately they are not Humans, or at least not...
  13. Demographics of a surviving Austria-Hungary?

    WW1 still happens somewhat similar to OTL, but without diving too much into details, Austria-Hungary remains completely intact following the war. Based on hindsight and on pre-war trends, how could the demographics of Austria-Hungary look like by the early 21th century? How big could the...
  14. WI: Austro-Hungarian victory at Marchfeld, but both Rudolf and Ottokar die?

    IOTL Rudolf was almost killed in the Battle of Marchfeld, but the timely arrival of Ulrich von Kapellen's cavalry broke the Bohemian army and Ottokar was killed in turn.

  17. WI Károlyi Mihály dies on the Eastern Front in 1916?

    Louis d'Anjou, King of Poland and Hungary, had 3 daughters with his wife Elizabeth of Bosnia, two of them-Mary and Hedwig, outlived him and succeeded in Hungary and Poland. But what if Louis and Elizabeth had one more daughter (say Elizabeth, named after mother, born around 1376)? Obviously...
  20. Jagiellons expand to the north instead of south
