"IF YOU WOULD WISH TO HELP WITH ANY OF THESE IDEAS, PLEASE TELL ME!'

NOTE: This idea is not mine. I got the idea when I saw Mitro's one, which you can find here . You're free to comment on this ideas.

NOTE 2: Probably not all (hell, not even most) of the ideas in this page will ever become their own TLs. However, I will write down any TL idea I have here.




1983:Doomsday

  • Kivuan Republic

    Kivuan controlled territory in dark green and claimed in light green within the former Zaire in white.

    Kivuan Republic:
    Presidential dictatorship located in the eastern half of what used to be Zaire. Relatively stable although power decreases as soon as you reach the anarchical only-claimed areas filled with Hutu and Tutsi immigrants. Has a huge metal deposits which might eventually prove of vital importance; is therefore being influenced by both the EABC (East African Bloc for Cooperation; Buganda, Toro, Bunyoro and the UPR as observer) and the EAC if Caeruleus grants me permission.
  • Kingdom of Aragon: A Catalan-speaking monarchy (the name coming from revivalist traditions; Aragonese is an official language, but spoken but a small minority of the population) in either Tarragonès or (if it's not viable due to it only being 91 kilometers from Barcelona) the Terres de l'Ebre.
  • Extremaduran Republic: Extremeñu and Spanish-speaking republic in Extremadura.
  • New Gallifrey: Since we've got this and this, and since I'm one of the most obsessed Whovians you will ever find, why not a small microstate based on Gallifrey? :P
    • Maybe Peter Davison was in his home of Woking, Surrey, and survived and Tom Baker was somewhere on his way to Liverpool. Banding together to establish a working community, slowly they begun to see themselves as the Doctors, which led to the state of New Gallifrey being established. Otherwise, an obsessive Whovian (I could serve if I was born thirty years earlier! :P) would work as well.

Kingdom of Aragon

Kingdom of Aragon 83DD

Blue: The Tortosa Kingdom. Green: The Gandesa Kingdom. Red: the (apparently) obsolete Tarragones Kingdom

After a short feedback discussion with LG, I'm pretty happy that the Kingdom of Aragon is probably viable if it is small and somewhere in Ebro (apparently Tarragona isn't useful since it's too close to Barcelona to survive... I'm not sure on that, but I'll redirect Aragon southwards). I now have two ideas for Aragon (besides, of course, obsolete Tarragona): the Gandesa and Tortosa versions. They are named after their respective capitals. Of course, the third way would be merging both states (even though I'd rather not).


Map of Central Asia

&nbsp 1983 Central Asia


To do list (Colombia)

  • Begin expansion into Panama (until the Channel Zone by early 2013?)
    • Occupy Coiba Island by March 2012 at the latest; turn the prison into a military base. Base military operations into La Liga, Azuero and Costa Rica from there.
    • March on Chepo. Negotiate with the other groups putting pressure on them. April or May of 2012 at latest.
    • Create a viable highway through the Darién Gap.
      • By December 15: Studies into a Darien Highway starts?
      • March across the Darien with part of the Colombian army? (less casualties with ex-guerilla and Guna aid, yet still the casualties due to jungle are high)
      • March on Chepo by early 2012? Soon afterwards discuss with the East Panama warlords for peace as the Chepo Regional Authority (with autonomy similar to Darien's).
      • Establish a military base somewhere around the Canal Zone.
      • Land troops on Coiba and establish military presence on the former island; later seize Cébaco from the Azuereños before the ANZ or USSR can establish aid on the Panaman states
      • Negotiate with the Ngäbe-Buglé government like Darien and East Panama's.
  • Populate or militarize the atolls in the Caribbean
  • Seek to reform the SAC into a more closely-knit organization
    • Monetary union enforced by July of 2013?
  • Seek to expand the SAC to Central America and the Caribbean?
  • Help our allies (Pakistan, the south Indian states) in any future war of agression?
  • Expand the SAC sphere of influence to Central Asia and Europe?

A T'ang Empire?

The An Shi Rebellion does not occur in China, and the T'ang are not weakened. Therefore, a Chinese Tang Empire survives until today.

    • T'ang becomes more pan-Chinese and a constitutional monarchy?
    • Earlier modernization?
    • Further influence into Korea and Japan?

Finnish Empire

  • The Uralic tribes form their own governments preventing them from being annexed by the surrounding nations?
    • Possible Uralic tribes to become important nations: Great Perm, Finland, Mari El, the Karelians, Mordovia, Urheimat (the original place of the Uralics, possibly between the Volga and the Oka, with the Kama basin as well, at its larger), Saamiland and the Samoyeds.
      • The Uralic tribes are converted to Islam by the Bulgars?
        • Part of the Golden Horde is "Uralicized" after its conversion to Islam?
      • On an opposite note, the Uralic tribes adopt another religion (Nestorian or a local rite of Christianity or Catholicism, maybe even Judaism) and assert their influence over the Bulgarians by converting them?
        • Later, after the Mongol invasion, they partially overrun the Rus' states and Byzantium?
  • The Varangians to visit Rus' are Finns and leave their language in the new state?
  • Slavs don't expand north but west (with mixed results)?

Christian Mongols?

(based on a blog idea)

Genghis Khan is a Kereit and henceforth Christian; his hordes preach Christianity.



Long Live Babylon?

The Babylonians set a small guard of the Euphrates. Before the Babylonian army became too drunk, an alarm that the water levels were lowering was uttered and Babylon is saved from Cyrus' armies.



Early Italy?

The Lombard Kingdom/the Kingdom of Italy retains it's independence and becomes one of the first modern states to unify. This leads the Italian country to establish influence over its boundary territories (the Kingdom of Arles and the Swiss Cantons) and becomes one of the modern great powers.


Pazzi Wars?

Giuliano de'Medici survives the Pazzi Conspiracy. This eventually leads to a inter-Italian war and later French and Habsburg intervention. The war becomes an early equivalent of the Seven Years' War.

  • Milan and Bologna aid the Tuscans in their war against the Papal States and Naples. The Italian alliances game soon takes it to a pan-Italian war.
  • Alternatively, the Guelph and Ghibelline conflict escalates into an all out war.

Lutheran Catholicism?

Luther somehow becomes Pope and reforms the Catholic Church without divides.


United Kingdom of France and Tuscany?

Flag of the Kingdom of Etruria

You have to love Napoleon for creating awesome flags. :P. This could be the flag of the Kingdom?

Caterina de' Medici becomes Duchess of Tuscany (as her half-brother wasn't born). After her marriage to the King of France and the birth of their son Lorenzo France and Tuscany unify.
  • This leads to further Franco-Spanish Wars as they clash for control of Italy (especially the Milanesado and Siena?)
  • France eventually annexes all of Northern Italy?
  • Italian is more widely spoken throughout France and French in Italy?

Vive les Jacobins et Live la Monarchie?

Louis XVI's pride is not as hurt as on OTL, and when he is executed his son is made King under Robespierre's puppetry. This causes the War of the Vendée not to happen and Robespierre to kill less people, only continuing the anti-Catholic and anti-Conservative measures the revolutionaries had started.

Greater Switzerland?

(based on an article I read stating several areas wouldn't mind being part of Switzerland).

Switzerland annexes Lombardy, Savoy, Liguria and parts of Veneto, Trentino, Baden-Württemberg and Bavaria. This makes it one of the powers of the age.


Victory in Varna

The Karamanids wait for the Hungarian attack, which is also aided by a Holy Roman-sent army in order to save the Byzantines. The crusaders are able to take Varna. Later on, Morea (and Athens), Epirus, Byzantium and Trebizond also attack the weakened army, and are soon able to vanquish the Ottomans from Europe.


Backwards Black Plague

(This will probably be basically a parody of this sort of timelines, which I find implausible and cliché as hell and a place for me to write ASB stuff; not a serious timeline)

The Black Plague mutates into a much devastating form just after moving into the Muslim and Oriental worlds. This causes Europe, Native America and India or somesuch ro fight for the spoils.

Frederick's Empire

  • Kaiser Frederick III doesn't get cancer and rules for far longer, establishing a liberal German Empire and a very different Europe.


British Defeat TLs

1701

  • The Spanish expedition against Charles Town is also successful and the southern colonies go to Spain.
  • Marquês das Minas dies in Estremadura, leading to the fall of Portugal to Franco-Spanish forces?
  • The Siege of Liège is a failure leading to the death of Marlborough?
  • The Jacobites land at the Firth of Forth, and, aided by non-Anglicans and Franco-Spanish troops are able to take over much of the Celtic areas in Great Britain.

1740

  • The War of Jenkins' Ear is even more of an embarassing defeat; St.Simon's Island falls and most of Georgia soon follows.
  • The Jacobite-French invasion of Scotland is successful, leading to a Catholicised-and more Celtic-Great Britain.

1759

  • the Spanish fleet is present in the Battle of Quiberon Bay, leading to a French invasion of Great Britain.





Middle East

A Divided Caliphate

An Outline

  • During 661 (or 750?) the Caliphate breaks apart between Zoroastrians, Nestorians, Orthodox and Monofysist.
  • The Caliphate breaks apart and the only Muslim remainders are Turkestan, an Ummayyad remainder on Iberia and an Abbasid remainder on Arabia.
  • The Renaissance may happen earlier (because of greater cooperation between Christian nations), later (because of there not being a great Muslim influence) or never (for the same reasons as above).


Smaller Islam

An Outline

  • The Byzantine-Sassanid War of 602-628 does not occur, so the Persian army is much stronger and stable. The Persians are able to resist the attack by Muslims. This also causes the Byzantines to be able to defeat the Arab invaders too. The Middle East is divided between a Muslim Arabia, a Christian Syria, Egypt and Anatolia, and a Zoroastrian/Christian Persia and Mesopotamia.


  • A Turk leader, however, later converts to Islam voluntarily, and OTL East Iran, Afghanistan and Turkestan become Muslim.


Richard Lionheart, the Crusader

Richard Lionheart recieves more support at taking Egypt and waits until 1192, when Saladdin died. With the Ayyubbids facing huge threats, Richard comes in and leads a very successful crusade against Egypt, which falls within a year.


Greece

Victory at Sakarya

The Greeks wait for the Turks to attack instead of marching through a desert to break the Sakarya line. Successful, they proceed to take Ankara and finish with a new victory crushing to the Turks.


Byzantium

That Byzantine door isn't left ajar and Byzantium survives in time for a wave of Christian reinforcements, which break off the siege and kill Mehmet.


Britain

Teyrnas Prydain Fawr?

  • The English kingdoms do not unify/unify much later. They are easier pray for a revitalized Kingdom of Alba and Principality of Wales. These later unify as the Kingdom of Welsh, Scots, English and Cornish (Kingdom of Great Britain). Henceforth, the British Isles are more Celtic.
    • Saint Augustine, Palladius, etc are able to reach communion with the Celts but not the Saxons hemce turning Christianity against them?

Kingdom of Scotland and France?

King Francis II doesn't get ill and survives till much later, therefore having children with Mary, Queen of Scots. This later leads to a second "Hundred Years War" scenario with the French invading the English.

No Civil War?

Frederick William, son of James I, survives and becomes King of Scotland and England. A more able ruler than his brother or his father, he is able to stop the Civil War by giving concessions to Parliament.

Hail the Tudors!

Queen Elizabeth I marries either Ser Walter Raleigh or Robert Dudley, perpetuating the Tudor Line.

Elizabeth marries a foreign suitor?

Devereux England

Robert Devereux's Essex Rebellion is successful.

Albert's Britain

Albert, Victoria's spouse, doesn't die. Without mourning, Victoria doesn't expand voting nor does her modernise the military leading to a weaker UK.

Seacole's Victory

Mary Seacole is admitted by Florence Nightingale leading to less segregation in XIX Century Europe?


Russia

1905 Revolution?

  • The 1905 Revolution is more successful, and it removes all but the excecutive powers of the Tsar, together witth leadership of the army, and grants autonomy to several new "Grand Duchies", semi-independent.

Map 3

RussianProvinces1905Rwithlanguages

Thanks to the Russian defeat in the Russo-Japanese War, Russia's duma fell into a period of huge jingoism. From then on, the Russian military was modernised to a huge point and prove to be one of the best armies in the world, defeating all Germany, Austria, Japan and the Ottoman Empire in the War of the Monarchs.



Constantin and Constitution

The Decembrist revolt is successful, leading to a constitutional monarchy and eventually a federation like in 1905's (see idea above).

Empress Alexandra

Alexander I of Russia is born female, and named Alexandra Pavlovna. Pavlov, noticing her huge intellect, names her heir to the Russian throne, despite her having several male siblings. When Napoleon makes a visit to Russia to either accord an alliance or declare war, he falls in love with Alexandra, and they are married, bringing the huge French and Russian empires together. Soon enough, Prussia and Austria are forced to swear perpetual allegiance to France and Russia, and Great Britain loses in the Old World (although the New World remained under a fixed pro-British rule, as did the British Isles themselves).

Pavlov's India

Emperor Pavlov lives long enough to start an invasion of India. While suffering heavy losses thanks to the unknown terrain and too warm living conditions, eventually they are able to oust the British from India, thus crippling the British in the Napoleonic Wars.


Feodor's Russia

Gonudov Division of Russia

The division of Russia (in Gonudov's own map!)

This TL involves four main PODs:

  1. Novgorod isn't entirely destroyed, creating a strong anti-boyar stronghold.
  2. Queen Elizabeth is charmed by young Feodor Godunov. Although she is too old to marry him, she agrees to sign an alliance with Russia and bethrode Elizabeth, her nephew's daughter.
  3. Feodor's sister is able to marry Gustaf Adolph of Sweden, gaining two main allies.
  4. The Great Famine of 1603 doesn't occur, which means Feodor is far more loved. A repentant boyar warns Feodor of his impending assassination, and the Gonudovs are able to flee to Novgorod, where English and Swedish troops aid him against the Poles.
  5. Possible name: The Deserting Oprichniki (because several boyars who plotted against Fedor were oprichniki)?


Swedish Novgorod

The Battle of the Neva of 1204 results a crushing Novgorodian defeat, which leads Sweden to start annexing the Novgorod Republic and later on as far as the Urals, leading to a far more powerful Sweden taking part of the place of Russia OTL.


Iran

Heil Reza?

Reza Shah Pahlavi's armies fight more than in OTL and are able, with help from the montainous enviroment, to expulse the Soviets and Britush from their invasion. The Shah declafes an allianc to Nazi Germany cutting the USSR and UK's oil routes.

Pahlavis Forever

The Persiqn 1953 minister isn't deposed leading to a mantaining of the Shah, allbeit after a crisis with the US and UK.


Colombia

Colombia Superpower?

Santander and Bolívar (alternatively Camilo Torres and Nariño) share the same ideals. Colombia doesn't suffers as huge of an internal crisis and becomes somewhat a superpower.


  • Venezuelan and Ecuatorian independence movements are unsuccessful and known as the "Páez Rebellion".
  • The Colombian-Peruvian War doesn't happen and Colombo-Peruvian relations are good.


British Colombia

The Battle of Cartagena de Indias is a British victory.


Pink Tide

1

The soldiers at the Banana Massacre in Colombia refuse to shoot the protesters and head for Bogotá so to establish a communist government. Later, USSR intervention has the USA marines not to intervene in the massacre. This leads to an earlier Pink tide in Latin America?


2

Colombia is invaded by the USA.

Royalist Bolivar

Bolívar agrees to go to Napoleon's coronation and doesn't meet either Alexander von Humboldt and Simón Rodríguez. This changes his political ideals and he becomes a staunch loyalist. As the leader of the anti-revolutionary army, he is able to defeat the revolts leading to a later Latin American independence.


Rest of the Americas

Fergusson, Saver of Britain

Fergusson shoots George Washington. A weakened Continental Army leads to a defeat in the American Revolution.


War of 1798

The Americans go to full out war after the failure of Jay's Treaty against the British. This leads to both a weaker Britain and the US in Europe and less fighting against revolutionary France as well as a weaker USA, or a British victory and the re-annexing of the US.f


United Provinces of Hispanic America?

Hispanic Flag

Possible flag of the Kingdom of Hispanic America? (The Coat of Arms is Columbus').

The crown prince of Spain escapes the Spanish mainland like the crown prince of Portugal instead of submitting to José de Bonaparte, leading to a Brazil-like independence of the Spanish colonies as a whole.

Differences

  • The USA includes Canada, but it only spreads until the Mississippi within OTL boundaries, as Spain did not cede Louisiana back to France
  • Everything up to the Mississippi and the 49 Parallel would be part of Hispanic America.
  • HA might develop into either a constitutional monarchy or a democracy.


Ful title of the King (for the lolz)

His Most Eminent Highness, King _______ of Houses Bourbon and Columbus, the Emperor of America, Admiral of the Ocean Sea and Viceroy of the West and East Indies, King of New Spain, of Perú, of New Granada, of the Argentine, of Chile, of Jerusalem, of the Haitis, Duke of Santo Domingo, of Oregon, of Luzón and the Philippines, of Quito, Venezuela, the Guayanas, California, Tejas, Utia, Nueva Orleáns, Misuri, Arkansó, Upper Luisiana, Upper Perú, of Cuba, of Puerto Rico, Count of Jamaica, of Acre, Lord Marshall of Habana, Chief Citizen of Cartagena and Mompós, Sheriff of Cumaná, of Punta Arenas, Lord Protector of Amazonia.


Name

If Hispanic America becomes a republic, its official name will be the United States of Colombia (Estados Unidos de Colombia), the United Provinces of the West Indies (Provincias Unidas de las Indias Occidentales) or the United Provinces of Hispanic America (Provincias Unidas de América Hispánica or Provincias Unidas de América Española). The monarchist title would be the American Empire (Imperio Americano), the Empire of the West Indies (Imperio de las Indias Occidentales) or Empire of Colombia (Imperio Colombiano or Imperio de Colombia).

  • NOTE: Colombia was not a title used for what is called Colombia nowadays until the collapse of Gran Colombia: before (and for a while shortly afterwards), it was used as Bolivar's idea for the Latin American federation.

The long, lame names (:P) are due to the fact that, since Spain's territory in the Americas was far vaster than Portugal's, there was not a single name for the colonies (such as Brazil). Therefore, a single name can't be used, and the terms for describing regions (which are far less "magical" than those for single nations) have to be used.

Union of Hispanic Crowns

The Jesuits are only weakened, instead of expulsed, by the Bourbon Reforms (maybe due to the Spanish keeping of the Misiones Orientales?). This leads the Count of Aranda's plan for the viceroyalties to become three dependent Kingdoms to occur, leading to a more powerful Spanish Empire

The Kingdoms

  • Universal Spanish Monarchy (Monarquía Universal Hispánica), 1492-1783
  • Spanish Union (Unión Española), 1783-1808, 1813-???
    • Empire of Spain (Imperio Español), led by the senior Spanish Bourbons. f.1783. Under Emperor Charles III (later Charles IV amd then Fernando VII)
    • Kingdom of Perú (Reino del Perú), led by the Bourbon-Habsburg branch of the family. f.1783. Under Infante Fernando (later Fernando VII of Spain and I of the Two Sicilies)
      • Argentine Viceroyalty (Virreinato Argentino), f.1800
      • Paraguay Missions (Misiones del Paraguay), f. the 1600s, aut.1805
    • Kingdom of New Granada (Nuevo Reino de Granada), led by the Bourbón-Bragança branch. f.1784. Under Infante Gabriel Bourbon.
      • Capitaincy General of Venezuela (Capitanía General de Venezuela), f.1777
    • Kingdom of New Spain (Reino de la Nueva España), led by the Bourbon-Moctezuma branch. f.1784. Under Infante Antonio Pascual Bourbon.
      • Californian Missions (Misiones de California), f.1700s, aut.1812
      • Yucatán Duchy (Ducado del Yucatán), f.1820

Monarch List

=Spanish Union and Empire of Spain

  • Charles III (Carlos III, 1716-1788)
  • Charles IV (Carlos IV, 1788-1795)
  • Ferdinand VII (Fernando VII, 1795-1805, 1813-???)
  • Ferdinand VIII (Fernando VIII, 1805-1806, 18???-???)
  • Joseph Bonaparte (José Bonaparte (Pepe Botellas), 1806-1808)


Welsh America

An expedition west by Madog ap Owain Gwynedd actually happens and leads to the earlier Christianization ( and the Celtification) of the tribes in eastern north America? (map to come soon)

  • Most natives are now immune to smallpox
  • Parts of America follow Old World religions
  • Advanced boating and weaponry in America exists.
    • Maybe this leads to an earlier or more unsuccessful and/or peaceful colonization?


Spanish Louisiana?

Somehow Spain doesn't give Louisiana back to France in 1803.

  • Republic of Louisiana (República de Luisiana) or American filibuster state?
    • Further American expansionism into Canada in the War of 1812?
      • Spanish/Mexican/Louisianan Oregón or more competence over the region?

Early Civil War

The Nullification Crisis leads to an earlier Civil War.


Spotty Lincoln, Spotty Congress

The Spot Resolutions are voted into Congress and Polk is impeached or just falls out of favor. Andrew Jackson comes into power and reaches a deal less devastating for Mexico than that OTL.


War of the Americas

(A new ASB! YAY!)

Rick Santorum goes in as presidential candidate in 2008 and attracts enough voters to be elected President. His ultra-right wing policies bring in Latin America's and the Middle East's leftists' fury. This leads to the 2011 College revolts in Latin America and the Arab Spring leading to a socialist revolution and then a 1983-like scenario.

Skræling Empire

Thorfinn Karselfni allows to trade weapons to the Skrælings together with milk (and later own pigs, horses and cows); this oeads to a more friendly Skrælings which don't expulse (and even help) the Vikings enough time for a large enough colony to arrive as well as smallpox. In result, when European explorers come a few hundred years later, the natives are far mpre advanced.

Mayan Empire

Tikal prince Jan Ujol Chaak defeats Calakmul paving the way to a more unified Americas.


Vive la Louisiane française!

The French are not attacked by yellow fever and go over to recovering Haiti. Hence, a French American empire is possible.


Harrison's Northwest

Harrison lives for his full term, leading to the cancel of the Northwest Ordinance (something deemed inconstitutional nowadays) and a lot of the Northwest Territories deciding whether to be slave or free by vote. Soon, many northern states are also slave-allowing.
