    The Fate of Portugal in a post 1812 POD Napoleon Victory

    Let's say for one reason or another Napoleon ends up victorious with no changes up until right before he invades Russia. In the event of such a victory what would be done with Portugal? The Treaty of Fontainebleau splitting Portugal in 3 was created before/with pretense for his eventual...
  2. June 18, 1815 - A Napoleonic TL

    I originally wrote this TL in Italian, so I apologize for errors or linguistic mistakes. I would have liked to add a map of Europe, but I wasn't able to load it because it said it was too large. If you are intrested in reading my original work in Italian, you can find it here...
  3. Napoleon Returns to Spain

    What if, after Wagram, Napoleon decides to handle the Spain problem himself? Of course, there is one caveat I will throw: if Napoleon doesn't beat Wellington and cure the Spanish ulcer by June 1812, he will still have to go to Russia. So with that in mind, assuming the campaign starts from...

    WI: No Hundred Days Or Flight From Elba?

    I've heard it tossed around a few times that France was actually going to get a bit more out of the Congress of Vienna than it did, but Napoleon's flight from elba and retaking of power led to France being left with what it received otl. Say that Napoleon's health is worse, maybe his cancer...

    Greater Ottoman involvement during the Napoleonic Wars

    The Ottoman Empire during the Napoleonic Wars was complicated. Their involvement was very minimal to say the least. They had diplomatic relations with France that really went nowhere, and fought a war with Britain and another war with Russia, and dealt with their own modernization problems...
  8. 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...
  9. What happens to Egypt w/o Napoleon's invasion?

    As the title says - what would have happened had Napoleon never invaded Egypt? IOTL, he played a vital role in breaking the power of the Mameluke ruling caste (although the Mamelukes had already been in a state of civil war for nearly 30 years), which enabled Muhammad Ali to seize power and...

The Point of divergence starts with the Battle of Ligny. At Ligny, the Prussians would suffer a bigger defeat in the battle with...

    AHC: How Large can Napoleonic Poland Get?

    Assuming Napoleon ends up victorious, how large can Napoleonic Poland, the then Grand Duchy of Warsaw theoretically get? Would its status be upgraded to that of a Kingdom? Could Napoleon essentially restore the Commonwealth here, or at least retake a lot of its lost land?

    WI: Napoleon stays as a Republican rather than adopting Monarchism?

    What if Napoleon instead of adopting the trappings and foundations of the First Empire, stays true to his old Republican ideals and maintains and eventually reforms the Consulate? How would this affect Europe and its political re-organization? What would happen to his various conquests if...

    In an 1812 battle with 80,000 men each who would win?
  16. Battle of Friedland does not happen

    What if the Russians retreat over the Alle River in time once Napoleon’s main army arrives to save Lannes on the 14th of June 1807? Would Napoleon start crossing the river and could there be an outcome like at Aspern (where he was crossing the Danube)?

  19. 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...
  20. What was Napoleon's ultimate plan for Europe/the World?

    So this started just as a question for fun, because I was doing a steampunk Napoleonic cold war (Napoleonic France vs. UK and allies) map... But I realized that my historical knowledge of the time is very poor beyond the basics and I need more accurate answers. So, my question is, assuming a...
