I haven't really had much time to upload/work on anything lately, school's started, and well my "creative block" has left me with a lot of unfinished maps/ideas xP.
You could say this is the product of procrastination lol
Anyway, I guess this has kind of turned into a fledgling series, if i have time i might do the other maps of the Habsburg holdings in this alternate timeline. Until then i hope this is good enough.
*Just for clarification, this is an alternate History map of what maybe it would look like if the Habsburgs had kept many of their european holdings/federated them... or something to that effect lol
*set in the mid to late 19th century.
*Sorry if the province borders are off (well for Austria-Hungary anyway), i made the mistake of erasing the national borders when editing the base map, and then coming up with the idea of adding provincial borders. I used a map of the "United States of Greater Austria" and visually traced the lines of the proposed states (like i said i probably murdered them, sorry xP).
*I'd probably say this would be placed sometime before the Spanish American War? Haven't really worked out a date yet.
*The reason why there's two National Capitals is because i figured the Royal Family would be Housed in Vienna, and the Senate and "Royal Representatives" based in Budapest.
*Overall I'd probably see this idea as more of a Confederation meets Global Empire, but then again; I guess maybe something along the lines of the Organization of the German Empire maybe? Idk....
*There are four main "autonomous" regions within the European section of the Empire: The Kingdom of Spain, The United States of Greater Austria, Kingdom of Naples, and The United Netherlands. The Austrian/Hungarian Branch of the Monarchy Holds Power over the others, thus the "Royal" Capital is located in Vienna, and the Legislative Capital in Budapest. (I'm considering making Madrid the Judicial Capital? But i can't really decide.)
*About the Abbreviations, i had absolutely no idea how to go about that, so i just winged it, if anyone wants to correct me or make any suggestions, be my guest.
*I've got to say, i love spain after this lol, the borders are not as complex as any of the other's i had to draw, but then again i slightly simplified them for the sake of my sanity <.< >.>
*This is simply a map of the European holdings, the others may fallow if i have the time or patience.... xP
*The world map of this little timeline of mine can be seen here:[link]
-Subnote: Refer to the rough draft description for a majority of the timeline reasoning/description.
*A closer look at the South American Holdings:[link]
*A closer look at the South African Holdings:[link]
If you have any questions, than feel free to ask, i will try to answer them to the best of my ability (considering i forgot a majority of my reasoning to this Dx) lol
