  2. What if Spain enforced its claim to the title of Roman Emperor

    Spain genetically, papally, and legally have a claim to the title of Roman Emperor. So what if they enforced this claim throughout its history? (Title legally given in 1499 and it entered the family genetically ~1530s)

    AHC: Italian/Lombard Versions of Charlemagne Creating the HRE

    Assuming Karloman survives and fights with Charlemagne, could a Lombard Version of Charlemagne arise in Western Europe? Italy despite being ravaged by the Gothic Wars and Lombard Invasions was still the wealthiest region in the Mediterranean world. Assuming some military genius...

    Greek Anatolia

    The Seljuk Turks took Anatolia after the Battle of Manzikert and it was partially recovered by the Komnenoi. This recovery stagnated after the Komnenoi were deposed. Let's say a new emperor comes along in the 1200's and retakes Anatolia. In this POD the Venetians fail in taking Constantinople...
  9. Plausibility and consequences of a (re)unification between the HRE and the ERE

    Hello guys, today I want you to think about the likelihood and the consequences of some kind of union between the eastern Roman empire and the holy Roman empire, precisely I'm thinking about a unification between the 9th and 11th century. How would this new empire look like?

    AHC/WI: Ostrogothic Kingdom Reunites Western Roman Empire

    Inspired by my doing a little reading on Lest Darkness Fall. How possible is it for the Ostrogothic Kingdom of Italy to avoid its decline and eventual fall to the Byzantine Empire, and to indeed expand, perhaps taking North Africa west of Egypt, all or part of Hispania, and all or part of Gaul...
  11. Roman Restoration

    Given that Emperor Justinian's dreams of "renovatio imperii", the restoration of the Roman Empire, died with him, what factors could have led to his empire surviving his death? From the reading I've done ive come to the conclusion that: 1: The plague of Justinian cannot happen. 2: Maurice...

    PC: A Roman Republic after Augustus

    Hi guys! I have a question for you: How plausible is a republican renewal after Augustus? How probable is it to have a restoration of the Roman Republic during the Principate? And how can we achieve that? Some clarifications: I know that the Romans called their state res publica even during...
  14. WI: 1917 Kaiser Wilhelm Executed, Germany breaks into 4 Kingdoms

    I'm currently working on a timeline beginning in 1917 going until World War II. Our point of divergence is March of 1917. After 3 years of the most brutal conflict in the history of man, the German people decided they had enough. Seeing that things were not going their way and that a positive...

    [POLL] Would Byzantium be better off without Justinian's conquests?

    From an ideological point of view, Justinians attempted Restauratio imperii was quite reasonable. The Roman Empire without Italy, without Rome, without the half of its ancient territory doesn't look that impressive so to say. But this is mere ideology. Justinians invasion of Italy ruined the...
