    WI: Alexander I of Russia was born a woman

    In OTL, after a peace treaty in 1807, Alexander I of Russia and Emperor Napoleon became friends, being cordial with each other, and forming an alliance. This friendship lasted until Russia began to distance themselves from the French, and Napoleon invaded Russia. However before that, supposedly...

    1905 Russian Revolution escalates to early Russian Civil War

    Exactly what it says above. How would the rest of the world react? How could it get to this point? And what would the likely outcome be?
  3. Russian presence in North Manchuria, effects on Japanese policies post-1930?

    Some context: Competent A-H fends off Brusilov offensive, no German USW, February Revolution still on time, no Kerensky Offensive, no October Revolution, armistice in late 1917/early 1918, negotiated peace in 1918. Russia only loses Poland (sans Suwalki). German Asia-Pacific possessions have the...
  4. WI: A Russian Tsar claims the Mandate of Heaven

    Ok, before you laugh and dismiss the idea as pure insanity, is there any way for a Russian tsar to somehow take enough of China to be considered, even if only by some of the population, to possess the mandate of heaven? Maybe the Manchu are never able to fully unite China, leaving it split...
  5. The More Things Change: A Late 20th Century Russia Timeline
    Threadmarks: Intro

    General Secretary Boris Yeltsin and Russian President Mikhail Gorbachev The passing of time brings them together once more: Boris Yeltsin would have turned 90 on February 1, and Mikhail Gorbachev will mark his 90th birthday slightly more than a month later, on March 2. This invites comparison...
  6. WI: Napoleon and Russia Agree to Invade the Ottomans Together

    I was thinking about this defunct TL that made me write this post. If Alexander I of Russia and Napoleon decided to agree on invading the Ottomans together and splitting up the empire among themselves, how radically different will Europe, the Middle East, and (to a smaller extent) North Africa...
  7. What would happen if Austria is destroyed in 1848?

    Let's say that the revolutions of 1848 were so severe that they suffocated Austria. What would Europe be like? Hungary becomes independent?

    Discussion: Who had the WORST claims to being the successor of the Roman Empire?

    There is a great debate and discussion on who the successor to the Roman Empire is. From the Holy Roman Empire, to the Ottomans, to the Russians, it stems the points of culture, language, lineage, legality, religion and location, on who truly is the successor to the Roman Empire... This isn't...
  9. Count of Crisco

    Sources for age of sail navies other than English & sometimes the French.

    During the age of sail, roughly 1600-1850, there were hundreds of actions involving more than two or three ships, and easily over a hundred fleet actions. Some dozens of nations would build and use ships in this era. And they were not just limited to the European powers. Nor was this era...

    WI/Challenge: Reverse Ukraine and Belarus

    (Disclaimer: I do not support any of this. Yes, the Holodomor was one of the biggest tragedies in the 20th Century. This is merely a hypothetical, so please to take this seriously, and I hope I don't break any rules or offend anyone? So I hope this isn't controversial when saying this... After...
  13. A Jagiellon Russia?

    Assuming Sigismund II Augustus has a son or two and Russia goes through the Time of Troubles like IOTL, could a member of the Jagiellonian dynasty win the support of enough Russian boyars to become Tsar? IIRC Wladyslaw Vasa had at least a few supporters IOTL, but Sigismund III's...
  14. AHC: Successful Invasion of the Russian Empire pre-1900

    By the title, I mean a comprehensive and successful invasion that sees a foreign government/military (so it cannot be a civil war faction) occupy and hold onto a substantial portion of Russia long enough to force it to the table in negotiations. It must be after the proclamation of the Tsardom...
  15. Russo-French Victory in WWI: Germany Partition Schemes?

    Early in World War I, it seemed possible that an Entente victory would result in a balkanization of Germany. Russian Tsar Nicholas II and French President Raymond Poincaire both supported the idea, various civilian and military leaders proposed such schemes, and in both countries the media...

    Hello everyone on this schedule After some thought on the timeline of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, I decided to rewrite it due to some errors and will write a new timeline of Austria instead.

  18. The Growing Mouse: A Collaborative TL

    1867: Tsar Alexander II of Russia offers to sell the land of Alaska to the House of Liechtenstein. Liechtenstein, wanting protection from major powers like France and Britain, and also seeing good things in the area, accepts.
  19. what would happen to Russia after an axis victory?

    (this is my first post) I find in a lot of axis victories scenarios where either the entirety of Russia is annexed, by both japan and Russia or Russia collapses after a loss to Germany and becomes a fantasy land of airplane states, thief republics, autonomous gulags and funny edgy...
  20. Original Entente Plans for Middle East

    From what I've read, the Sykes-Picot agreement really wasn't at all like the ultimate outcome in the Middle East post-WWI. The basic spheres of influence largely aligned (with some exceptions, ie. France getting Mosul) but at this point there were no plans regarding mandates and establishing...
