    DBAHC: Roman Empire Centered On Greece And Anatolia

    Otl, after the roman empire was split, the east quickly became more wealthy and more centralized- exactly its downfall as it was seen as a bigger prize. Between the endless barbarian incursions (very near most of their homelands in the carpathian and black sea regions), the persians, and...

    WI: Tiberius survives

    It was reported by Tacitus that Tiberius's death came, after a bout of unconsciousness, in the form of being smothered with cloth by Macro, the prefect of the Guard. Cassius Dio in addition states that Caligula was complicit in this act. What if this attempt on his life failed? I assume that...

Papacy as an independent power worked...

    Was it ever possible for the Byzantines to stay Western in character and culture?

    Obviously, the core of the East was always in Greece, but was the obsoletion of the Latin language and culture inevitable? What developments would be needed to prolong or indefinitely keep it?
