Heart of Empire: An Alternate British Profile by mdc01957 Heart of Empire: An Alternate British Profile by mdc01957
Here's something of a surprise present for all of you as well as a change of theme: a map profile of an alternate history UK based on some campaign games in both Medieval II: Total War and Napoleon: Total War as England/Britain. The basic premise is that England succeeded in both uniting the Isles earlier and retaining some of its lands in France (and later regaining more of it in an alternate Napoleonic Wars).

So feel free to relax, lie back and think of England. Though if this link comes to mind ([link]), I won't blame you. ;)

"Nation Profile: The British Empire/Commonwealth

The United Kingdom of Great Britain, Normandy and Britanny - commonly referred to as either the U.K., Britannia or the British Empire - is a sovereign constitutional monarchy located in Western Europe, with London as the official capital. Though it has in many ways originated from and tied with England, it is comprised of constituent countries that include Wales and Scotland; Up until the 1915 Independence Referendum, the Dominion of Ireland was considered part of the United Crown. At present, it is a prominent member of the European Community (EC) and League of Nations. It is also an informal member of the International Great Powers Conference (IGPC) and recognized head of the British Commonwealth of Nations, often derided by foreign critics such as the French Directorate as but another manifestation of its Empire since the Indian Question (1950s). Its current monarch is HRM King George XIV of the House of Lancaster-Windsor (since 1974), with Jonathan Bellford of the Social Federalist Party (So-Federalist) as Prime Minister...

I fancy doing a map of Europe based on Europe when I finish my Crusader Kings II game, I managed to unite the British Isles in 1231, gained Navarra and most of Northern Spain through marriage when my wife died in 1240, along with a considerable claim for France, which I took, bring France into the Empire by 1277, so as you could tell, hugely accurate to history!

I kinda have my sympathies for the Netherlands. I think they kinda deserve to give France some serious beating, though it will never happen... :(

I hope Britain and the Benelux will be as close friends again as they used to be, instead of the British sticking to those French... :(

Even though I'm not British, I like this a lot. As long as the Dutch people are united, I wouldn't actually mind being part of another country (except for France and as long as we can just have some autonomy and speak our own language), like Britain, Spain or Germany. :) And you have made a very nice map, btw. :nod:

Alright.

Does this Alternate UK retain any colonies not depicted on this map?
Reply

At least some of them. They're still pretty powerful.

Interesting, I wonder if the UK scaled down colonization efforts due to the fact they need to hold parts of France.

Really now?

Admittedly, I only went as far as having Canada and the Oceanic countries at least being the major bastions of Commonwealth (i.e. "reformed Empire") power on the planet.

good map, but might want to change some details such as the dynastic name (windsors only came into being in the early 20th centuary when the royal family changed their germanic name due to anti-german sentiments), the brtiish commonwealth and such titles (id doubt theyd still exsist if the term "british empire" was still in use, as the commonwealth was only formed after the emprie disintergrated)

id also tweak the flag a little, as if ireland is a dominion, bot a consituant part of this brtiian, then st patricks cross wouldnt be on the flag...mabye add something from its french lands instead
