  1. Less Russian Siberia?

    I'm thinking a Time of Troubles PoD. Suppose it results in a weaker, conquered, or more westward looking Russia; what do you think might happen to Siberia? I heard something about an indigenous uprising during the time of troubles, but Russian troops were ultimately able to put them down. If...

    WI: Gustavus Adolphus wasn't killed at Lützen

    Gustavus Adolphus, King of Sweden, is one of those rare figures in history, that seem almost legendary. He was the King of Sweden from 1611 to 1632, and was seen as one of the greatest military commanders in modern history and a seen as "The Father of Modern Warfare" due to him pioneering...
  3. WI: Bona Sforza doesn't fall of her horse.

    Whenever I see people pondering what would've happened had the Jagiellonian Dynasty survived past Sigismund II Augustus it involves him fathering children. For all we know Siggie could've been infertile (he was married 3 times and had no children), although that is just a personal opinion. I've...

    In 1605 Polish-Lithuanian (mostly Lithuanian tbh) army under hetman Chodkiewicz stomped Swedish army at Kircholm and Charles IX had to flee from the battleon a borrowed horse. So, the question is, what if, one way or another, he was intercepted by PLC cavalry and taken prisoner? What will...

    WI: Sweden-Norway gets the Congo instead of Belgium

    I'm not sure if this is true or not, but apparently, the United Kingdoms of Sweden and Norway was the next country to get the Congo had Belgium not gotten it. Let's say that in an alternate timeline that Belgium's claim to the Congo is declined at the Berlin Conference by the other countries...

    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...
  8. Gustav III's Russian War goes better for Sweden?

    While he was definitely a skilled politician, Gustav III's tenure as king of Sweden was mediocre at best thanks to his rampant spending and inability to stick to a consistent program. One of his schemes was a surprise attack against Russia, then bogged down in one of its many wars with the...
  9. Sweden wins the Finnish War?

    Did Sweden have a chance of keeping Russia from conquering Finland? If so, how could they do it? I assume keeping control of Sveaborg is a must, for obvious reasons. How would a Russian defeat here affect the Napoleonic Wars? My guess is their alliance with France will fall apart earlier...

    Would Scandinavia go Protestant if Christian II of Denmark stayed on the throne?

    I'm writing a timeline where Christian II of Denmark isn't deposed from his position as King of Denmark, Norway and Sweden, due to him not carrying out the Stockholm Bloodbath. At first I was initially thinking that it wouldn't have a big effect on the course of The Reformation in Scandinavia...
  12. AHQ/AHC: Anti-Scandinavian Sentiments a thing?

    In terms of ethnic European cultures, Anti-Slavic sentiment has long occurred throughout history, as did Ant-Italian and Amti-Irish sentiments, where all of them were discriminated and persecuted against. However, has anti-nordic sentiments ever happened, where people from Norway, Sweden...

  14. Sweden loses the War of Liberation?

    The Swedish War of Liberation was the conflict that led to the rise of the House of Vasa in Sweden and ended the Kalmar Union for good. In spite of its ultimately victorious conclusion, however, the war began as a small peasant uprising, and even after it grew in size it took the rebels two...
  15. A Danish victory at Brunkeberg?

    The Battle of Brunkeberg was a crushing setback for Denmark and the Kalmar Union, since it secured Sweden's independence from Copenhagen for the next few decades. Although John and Christian II did control the kingdom later, they only did so for a brief amount of time before it broke away for...

    What if Switzerland and Sweden got involved in World War 2?

    By if they got involved, I mean how they would affect the world if they declared war with or on the Tripartite Pact, or Germany, Italy, and Japan. I would think that if they joined in on the Axis powers' side, then the world would have been different. I would say the PoD is around 1933, where...

  18. WI: Eric of Pomerania succeeds in getting Bogislav nominated as his heir

    In OTL, the childless Kalmar Union king Eric of Pomerania tried unsuccessfully for years to get his paternal first cousin (Bogislav IX, duke of Pomerania) to be named his universal heir in Denmark, Norway, and Sweden. This was stymied when the Danish estates rejected Bogislav in 1436 and brought...
