  1. Brazil's Old Republic was overthrown in 1924?

    In July 5, 1924, a group of military rebels (the Tenentes) led by Isidoro Dias Lopes led a revolt in São Paulo against the Brazilian Old Republic and its president, Artur Bernardes. However, although they eventually took the city after a few days, by the time their control of it was secured they...
  2. Latin America in a Napoleonic Victory

    If Napoleon were successful in hegemonizing Europe and invades Britain soon after, what happens to his brother Joseph's empire in the Americas? They'd probably revolt, but was it possible for Joseph to keep the territories with France's aid. Also I've heard somewhere that latin America might've...
  3. "Revolution Plowed the Sea" What if Latin America was a Great Power?

    This is a series of maps originally posted to r/imaginarymaps that tries to portray a world in which Latin America became a Great Power through the alliance known as the "Panama Pact" and eventually getting into a Cold War with the German Empire, I'm not really sure how much lore I'm allowed to...

    Threadmarks: Note

    Order and Progress A Brazilian TL by kubitschek NOTE Hello! I have been a lurker for quite a time since the past months, and I have finally decided to write my first timeline. As such, I would love to receive, especially from the Brazilian community present here, any constructive criticism...
  5. Perón isn't overthrown in 1955, completes his second term?

    With a POD after 1951, could Argentine president Juan Perón do something to prevent the military coup that led to decades of instability, more coups, and dictatorships, the most brutal one by far being the National Reorganization Process? Could he have done something to diminish or perhaps...
  6. Mexico reforms in the 1970s?

    So I've made some research on prominent Mexican politicians during the 1960-70s, the most authoritarian years of PRI's perfect dictatorship, mostly because I was inspired by @Roberto El Rey's excellent TL. I eventually stumbled upon the name of Carlos Alberto Madrazo Becerra, who was governor of...

    Threadmarks: Part 1: A Divided City

    ------------------ Part 1: A Divided City Throughout practicaly all of Porto Alegre's republican history, most of its inhabitants had very little say in how the capital of the state of Rio Grande do Sul was run. During the Old Republic, its mayors, like pretty much all other politicians of the...
  8. Brazilian WI: Carlos Lacerda doesn't become governor of Guanabara in 1960?

    This is a rather obscure WI so I'm calling in fellow Brazilians @Gukpard @Guilherme Loureiro @ByzantineCaesar @Gonzaga and @AdrianoChika. Carlos Lacerda was one of the more important political figures of the 1945-1964 era in Brazil. A journalist and politician who constantly agitated for a...
  9. Nixon's foreign policy if he's elected in 1960, especially to Latin America?

    Like it says on the tin. Would the Alliance for Progress still have happened? Would he have tried to get close to China like he did IOTL? What about the Bay of Pigs and the Cuban Missile Crisis, would the latter still happen?

    CSA relations with Latin America

    With a POD, where the CSA won the war around 1862-1863, and gains independence from the USA, where does it go? The South IOTL had this idea, to conquer large swaths of Latin America, to create, the Golden Circle. But that could come later The question is, what would the Confederate States of...
  11. What would a stable Brazil actually look like?

    I've seen a lot of threads on the survival of Imperial Brazil or even a better Old Republic, but I haven't seen many that actually go into more depth about what this alt-Brazil would actually look like. For simplicity's sake (and my own personal preference) I'm just going to say the the Empire...
  12. Nationalist victory in China: consequences for the Cold War?

    Like it says on the tin. What could've been some major effects of the Nationalists winning the Chinese Civil war? Would the USSR focus most of its efforts in securing its empire in Europe, rather than trying to export communism to the Third World? Would we still have a Korean War? If so, Kim...
  13. AHC: Setup for a Prosperous, Industrialized Latin America

    With a POD any time during or after the Age of Discovery, how can Latin America (anything south of the modern US) be set up to be comparable in living standards to the US of today? Colonization patterns don't necessarily have to be similar (e.g. the metropole for any region can be different) but...

    WI: Néstor Kirchner finishes third in the 2003 Argentine pres. election

    As the title says. What would have happened if Fmr. Pres. Carlos Menem and Fmr. Min. Ricardo López Murphy had occupied the first two places in the 2003 Argentine presidential election? IOTL, the margin between Gov. Néstor Kirchner and Fmr. Minister López Murphy was about 6 points, but was...

    La revolución progresiva: A Latin America supposing

    This is a beginning of some notes towards, a granted unreasonably idealistic, imagining of the history of Latin America after the Second World War. Gualberto Villarroel was the Head of State [nee dictator] in Bolivia in the 1940's. Broadly, his political philosophy was in many respects not...
  16. what are the best ways on how to achieve a better-off Brazil?

    There are a multiple ways in which Brazil, which had the similar economic potential early in the mid-19th century during the imperial period and it was a major rising power both politically and economically and enjoyed a good deal of prestige and prosperity as Australia, US and Canada, did could...

    Gran Colombia

    Gran Colombia was a massive country that was composed of Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador and Panama from 1819 to 1831. Do you think it could still be existing today? If so, how? What impact do you think its existence would have in Latin America, and the rest of the world?

    The loudspeaker broadcast the final boarding call for the ferry. I had been smoking a cigarette and staring out across the harbour, looking at nothing in particular but taking in the sunshine on a nearly cloudless day. The announcement broke my focus, so I grabbed my backpack off the dock, mate...
