  1. An Austrian victory at Wagram?

    The decisive engagement of the War of the Fifth Coalition, the Battle of Wagram came on the heels of the French defeat at Aspern-Essling and ended with a decisive yet bloody victory for them.

  2. Could the Napoleonic Wars end with a Prussian wank?

    This is far from a subject I'm well versed about, but from what little I know Prussia had a pro-Napoleon party before the outbreak of the War of the Fourth Coalition. How plausible would it be for Berlin to ally itself with France during the War of the Third Coalition in exchange for getting...
  3. Napoleonic Wars With No French Demographic Decline?

    https://www.guillaumeblanc.com/files/theme/Blanc_secularization.pdf Many people believe that the French demographic decline started after the French Revolution, when in fact it started as early as the 1730s. The cause of this is theorised to be early secularisation, but why this early...
  4. Persia retains Armenia and Azerbaijan in 1804-1813?

    The Russo Persian War of 1804-1813 was simultaneous to, and deeply affected by, the Napoleonic Wars. The Qajar dynasty, young, unstable and weak, sought foreign aid to turn its army into a force capable of standing up to the Russians, but the shifting dynamics in Europe screwed them over: the...

    Treaty of London, 1814

    So in 1814, the Netherlands and Britain signed the Treaty of London about the return of former Dutch colonies to The Netherlands, colonies occupied by the British during the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars.

    Hello. I have a timeline in the works involving no Napoleonic Wars, and I need to figure out Europe. What would Europe look like politically without the Napoleonic Wars?
  11. Plausibility check: Napoleon scrapes out a victory in 1814?

    The Six Days' Campaign was Napoleon's last display of the brilliance that marked the first years of his military career. Hopelessly outnumbered and leading an army made up of conscripts who barely knew how to use their muskets, he scored four back-to-back victories against the Army of Silesia, a...
  12. Ferdinand VII isn't captured by Napoleon?

    Less than two months after becoming king of Spain for the first time, Ferdinand VII and his deposed father, Charles IV, were called upon by Napoleon to go to Bayonne to, officially, sort out the situation that was developing as a result of the Tumult of Aranjuez and the Dos de Mayo Uprising...

    No Bernadotte for Sweden - effects on Napoleon’s invasion of Russia?

    I’ve been reading Dag Ahlander’s Sverige vid avgrunden 1808-1814 (Sweden at the abyss 1808-1814) detailing Sweden’s political and diplomatic situation during the critical years of the Napoleonic wars. A big surprise while reading it was the large roll Ahlander attributes to Charles XIV John...
  15. What if Horatio Nelson survived?

    The Battle of Trafalgar was one of the most iconic naval battles in history. A climactic clash that sank Napoleon's hopes for an invasion of the British Isles, it was perhaps the greatest victory for Royal Navy admiral Horatio Nelson. However, it was also his last victory, as he was shot by a...

    Dutch Ceylon

    In OTL, during the Napoleonic Wars, the Netherlands lost Ceylon to the British Empire. The British then defeated the Kingdom of Kandy, which was a kingdom in Ceylon (The Dutch only owned the coastal areas of Ceylon). But what if in an alternate timeline, the Netherlands defeated the Kingdom of...

    Batavian Cape Colony

    What if in an alternate timeline, the Netherlands, or more specific the Batavian Republic, won the Battle of Blaauwberg in 1806? Would the result be that the Cape Colony remains Dutch? Or would the British have set up a new expedition in the Cape Colony? And what would have happened more?
