It looks like in OTL “everybody” was inclined not to allow Egypt to became excessively strong.Interesting Polish commonwealth is starting to look increasingly big, I think it's fine as long as the corruption and nobility infighting spread to areas previously under control of Prussia and Austria otherwise next generation Russia may have to deal with Poland. Maybe encourage the decadence and corruption if possible? It's still better all the way for a weak commonwealth to shackle polish nationalists to than let them fight for their utopian ideal.
Egypt is starting to emerge as a power, I wonder if they try their colonial empire scheme.
This was mostly a byproduct of a weak regime. AII was trying to please everybody, satisfied nobody and was assassinated leaving country in a terrible mess. But, to be fair, he inherited an empire ruined by the previous reign and was trying to get out of the problems most of which will not exist ITTL.O yeah I read about that war, should be noted that the 1877 war their was a major hidden cost, a lot of Russian volunteers and groups raising funds ect definitely was also a issue, given it created a lobby to intervene much more in the Balkans.
