Alternative History

Welcome to the main page of the Magnam Europae ATL, an alternative timeline that explores the possibilities and reprocussions of a union between the Frankish Empire and the Byzantine Empire through the marriage of Charlemagne of the Frankish Empire and Irene of Athens, leading to a more united Christianity and a reconsolidation of the Roman Empire unseen since its fall in 476 AD.


The point of divergence from our universe takes place in 802 AD. In our universe, following the discussion of a union between Irene and Charlemagne, a conspiracy leads to Irene's banishment to the island of Lesbos, where she meets her fate a year later. In this universe, however, the conspiracy fails and Irene is never dethroned, allowing Charlemagne and Irene to marry and unify the Carolingian and Byzantine Empires.
