    Novgorod and its surrounding regions had a distinct history from the rest of Russia until fairly recently in the grand scheme of things. Until the fall of the Republic of Novgorod in 1478 its political institutions were drastically different from the ones found further south, as a Merchant...
  3. Poland partitioned at Deluge

  4. Denmark-Norway remains intact + Sweden keeps Finland, what happens to scandinavism?

    Assuming that both Denmark-Norway remains intact and Finland stays a part of Sweden, with a point of divergence in sometime close to the Napoleonic wars, what would become of scandinavism? It had already started to some small degree during the late 1700s (for example during Gustav IIIs visit to...
  5. Great Northern War with Karl XI in change?

    In the real world Karl XI died of cancer leaving his young son, Karl XII, in charge of the soon to be at war empire. Based on what we know about Karl XI and Karl XII's respective styles, if the war still begins in roughly the same way, how do you think Karl XI would handle the war? What would...
  6. A 'Greater' Northern War

    I got inspired by this threads central topic: Link So apparently King Frederick William 1(The Soldier King) of Prussia was intended to marry Queen Ulrika Elenora of Sweden at the start of 1700, but on the verge of certification Charles XII pulled the plug on these plans for reasons unknown...

    How could we keep the Swedish Empire as a Great Power into at least the 20th century?

    Question is pretty much in the title. What PoDs would be needed to keep Sweden as a great power? I figure winning the Great Northern War would be a start, but their population problem needs solving. I was looking through this thread...
  8. Sweden decisively wins the Battle of Langnes

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Langnes The Battle of Langnes was the last battle of the Norway swedish war of 1814. The battle ended in a stalemate with the Norwegian army able to retreat in good order across the Langnes River. This showed that the war was going to go on far longer...
  9. A country in despair - rewrite

    Life getting in the way made me loose the extra time I had to write the former TL. But I don´t complain, it was mostly life changes made by my own choice. And upon doing more research I have found so much minor changes that needed to be done, so a fresh start seemed like the best course of...

    WI: Charles XII didn't die but still losses the Great Northern War

    Charles XII was one of the most famous or infamous (Depending on your view) Swedish kings. Already at a young age when the Great Northern War, he already defeated the Denmark-Norway, the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth under the King of Saxony, and finally turned his attention to Russia under...
  11. Swedish involvement in the second danish-prussian war?

    In the real world despite a promise of Swedish help from the king of Sweden and Norway, Denmark fought alone. In an alternate world, what would fulfilling the promise look like? what would it take for the Swedish government to agree to help Denmark? What would opinions be like in Norway? (who...

    How Big of a Role Did the Jesuits Play in Poland-Lithuania's Decline?

    I'm working on a timeline with a less colonized America, and something that I'm thinking about is how a lot of the counter-reformation was funded by new world silver. How much would a timeline where such organizations weren't as large change the history of Poland? It seems like the Khmelnytsky...

    What if Sigismund III Vasa was Protestant?

    I'm guessing he would probably not get elected king of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. Would Maximilian III be elected in Sigismund's place? How different a path would that put the Commonwealth on? Would it set a precedent for a Hapsburg Poland-Lithuania? Would Sigismund and his descendants...
  14. The Swedish Cap party and Hat party if they continued in the 1800s? Support amongst the newly urbanised?

    (First time posting so I'm kinda nervous haha) So I'm in the process of writing and researching a timeline that involves the Swedish Cap and Hat parties continuing into the 1800s. And so I'm wondering about the relationship between the different parties and agricultural workers once they...

    AHC : Make Bulgaria, Italy, Ottomans, Spain, and Sweden strong Allies for Germany in WW1

    The challenge is what it says on the tin. With a POD of 1860 and after, make Bulgaria, Italy, the Ottoman Empire, Spain, and Sweden, strong allies for the German Empire for the oncoming World War 1 so they're carrying their weight and being an effective member of the Central Powers that doesn't...

    What if Sigismund III Vasa wasn't so fanatically Catholic?

    So I'm actually working on a scenario where the Americas were never heavily colonized, and one possible consequence is that the Jesuits wouldn't have the funding to become the force that they did in our timeline. It's possible that Sigismund wouldn't be born or the royal politics that brought...

    What if Sweden joined the Central Powers?

    After doing some research for one of my TLs, I stumbled across some pretty interesting history about how Sweden had some pretty strong pro-German sentiments upon the outbreak of World War One, particularly amongst its monarchy. On multiple occasions prior to the outbreak of hostilities, Sweden...
