Stuff that Happens 1680 - 1750

  • Congress of Prague in 1732 divides Germany into various independent nations as the result of the exiling of Charles VI, Holy Roman Empire in 1712. Austria takes Croatia, Transylvania, and much of Hungary from the Ottoman Empire. Moldavia miraculously retains independence.
  • Konstantin Phaulkon's son Phaulkon Boonsak commissions the first factory in the city of Thonburi.
  • Philippines is under the rule of strongman José Luis Manotoc until 1950, after years of fighting for independence from Japan. The independence day is July 5, 1716. Japan retains Sabah.
  • Franco-Spain takes over huge chunks of North America that sum both countries' possessions.
  • Peru takes over Río de la Plata and holds onto it as Parakwaysuyu after the local Guaraní name. The Spanish language remains the most common. The Portuguese abandon Sacramento so it doesn't matter.
  • Siam begins assimilating Cochinchina, ceding part to Tonquin as a gift.
  • Huge rebellions across China begin in 1730. Burma engages in all-out war with China, with China supported by many European powers and Siam, and Burma supported by Portugal and Britain.
  • A resurgence in Ottoman power and a new structure by the new sultan allows for rapid expansion, taking Wallachia and parts of Poland-Lithuania.
  • Japan takes Pusan, having ended its sakoku period.
  • Triple Alliance members are cleaning up after the war. Money goes into development of modern facilities and infrastructure in cities, while rural areas are largely neglected. As a result, urbanization becomes common.
  • The Peruvian city of Tjintja (OTL Tambo de Mora) becomes Peru's second largest city, after Qusqu by 1733.
  • Peruvian scientist Vaskar Qutja happens on the discovery of quinine, from a local plant. This allows expansion in Patjakutiqpa Kuluni to increase rapidly inland. European powers are unaware of this innovation.
  • The population of Fuegian slaves in North America reaches 15,000 in 1720, and it reaches 25,000 in South America. Free Yaghans number about 1,600 in Ninasuyu, and many are used for medical research.
  • The Tjintja Islands' European facilities are destroyed by an earthquake in 1746 and not repopulated by the Danes. The earthquake also destoys many buildings of mud, stone, and brick in Pisqu and Patjaqamaq, killing about 12,000, making it by far the deadliest earthquake in Peruvian history.
  • Smallpox epidemic of 1746, kills 12% of Peruvians, especially those along the coast affected by the earthquake. The population of Tjintja drops from 189,000 to around 112,000 in the ensuing chaos. The Sapa Inka offers large amounts of gold and silver to anyone who could produce a cure for smallpox in 1747.
  • Acts of Union in 1722, unify Scotland, England, Ireland. The south of Ireland launches a rebellion and successfully declares independence as the Catholic Kingdom of Ireland by 1741. The action is also highly controversal in Scotland.


  • An uprising beginning in Münich spreads a sense of German nationalism. Thousands are executed, especially Slavs and Jews, in the creation of a new German Republic, led by Emil Fleischer from 1779 to 1782. He declares the German Empire and invades several nearby states. Shockwaves are sent through Europe, bringing ideas of nationalism, authoritarianism, and others. Nationalist composer Richard Schiffer (1742-1819) composes many nationalist pieces using folk melodies from Germany.
  • Norwegian Jan Knudsen visits the Philippines.
  • France comes to dominate the Franco-Spanish Union.
  • Germany declares war on France and other states for the period of 1796-1799.
  • Prussia annexes Lübeck and Courland. Prussia explores the Kongo and establishes a trading post at its mouth.
  • Poland-Lithuania is invaded by the Ottoman Empire and is subsequently divided among Prussia, Brandenburg, Sweden.
  • Sweden and Denmark fight, and Sweden is victorious in the war of 1755 - 1756.
  • Moldavia is annexed by the Ottoman Empire.
  • Panthay Rebellion of 1760 to 1776 culminates in Burmese conquest of Kunming and beginning the Kuei Dynasty in China. Siam supports China, while Burma is supported by Britain and some European powers.
  • Guano is first brought to Thailand in 1753. Guano reaches Europe in 1787.
  • Siamese Industrial Revolution: along the Chao Phraya. Reaches Philippines and Tonquin in the 1790s.
  • United Provinces is de facto vassalized under Britain, also entering dynastic union with Prussia.
  • Naples returns to Franco-Spain, Savoy annexes Sardinia, Venice and Savoy split formerly Austrian Italy, while Austria takes the Dalmatian Coast of Venice.
  • Russia completes annexation of Siberia and begins settling Alaska.
  • Trade/colonial dispute between Britain and Franco-Spain erupts in five-year's war, ending up in British annexation of Louisiana and Canada.
  • Siam explores and settles the northern coast of Australia, mainly among those escaping religious persecution or wishing to escape the frenzied life of the Industrial Revolution.
  • Scottish-Norwegian Enlightment. Scotland and Norway begin to escape the statism and nationalism of Europe. Both countries produce works of art and literature of a distinct style, fueled by trade and the growing power of the MacAnroy family in both countries.
  • Philosophers including Lukas Fuchs in Mecklenburg (1668-1735), Franz Bachmeier in Bavaria (1690-1735), Karl Junker in Vienna (1712-1777) establish the ideas of the Enlightement in Europe. These include statism, exploration of self, ideas of duty to country, among others. Art retains its ceremonial purpose and has a classical formula outlined by Tuscan composer Antonio Barberini.
  • Si Xi Rebellion 1783-1786 in Northern China as a backlash against non-Chinese rule in China under the Kuei Dynasty. It is quickly and effectively put down by the new government, although the traces of the Four Cliques are missing.
  • José Luis Manotoc is overthrown by a group of rebels led by Emilio Santiago Panto Morales, son of a Chinese slave from Duruguán, and a Spanish criollo, on 15 July 1750. He grants land back to mestizos and Hispanics that was taken by the regime of Manotoc.
  • Compromise of 1775: Franco-Spain gives Britain rights to the Mississippi River in return for ten million British pounds.
  • Art and music flourishes during what is known as the Menam period in Siam, and ideas spread to Japan, China, and the Philippines. Art of the time is ambitious and attempts to achieve superlatives of simplicity and beauty. Led by Siamese composers Palaphong, Thanasorn, and Wan Kam, and Udompattana, as well as Peruvian composer Titu Imanuy Langermann, and Filipino Manuel Ávila Vega of Zamboanga the movement's music incorporates many local elements, and thus nationalist undertones. The main origin of the music is Piphat, Gamelan, and Kulintang music. Art is similar and depicts more than religious elements. Spanish style media is used commonly in Siam, creating images of Buddhist scripture but also of new technological advances. It is believed that pictures depicting technology grew out of perfection of engineering drawings, and came to motivate the people to work in factories.
  • The change of government and many rebellions causes many Chinese to flee their homes, to the Philippines, Burma, Indochina, and to a lesser extent, Peru. There is about an equal distribution of rich and poor migrants, and they particularly from the regions of Xia-men, Kuang-chou, Che-chiang, Kuang-xi, Yün-nan, Kuei-chou, and Sze-ch'uan (Ch'eng-tu Rebellion).
  • Various smallpox epidemics in the 1770s kill over 20% of the remaining population of Peru. Scientist Kumja Vanqar Pavkar, while travelling in Uruguay near OTL Comandante Fontana, Argentina, discovers a Guaraní village which had been afflicted with cowpox five years prior to the epidemic reaching the area, and had not had a single case of smallpox since, despite most of the neighbouring villages being nearly wiped out the disease. makes an attempt to connect the two incidents by intentionally contracting cowpox and then demonstrating immunity to smallpox. By the 1780s, a wakamate (vaccine) is derived against cowpox, at first only among the royal family, but later used throughout the empire.
  • Chinese Filipino composer Andrés Iturburu Nong writes the Teochew Suite, bringing Chinese culture into the repertoire of Triple Alliance music in 1777, as a partial celebration of the new dynasty. By the 1790, it has become the dominant musical style, althoughthid movement fails to penetrate the Pacific Ocean to Peru, or to India.
  • Peruvian scientist Titu Qhapaq Jupanki invents the pneumatic tire in 1759. In 1798 his son Javar Qhapaq Jupanki develops the bicycle, marketing the technology to revolutionize the tjaski system by the mid-19th century.
