Habsburg South Africa by Muzik-Maniac Habsburg South Africa by Muzik-Maniac
I really wanted to do an overview of all the Habsburg possessions within africa for my timeline, but the base map i found was too big, so i just ended up cropping sections out of it, and so africa will have to be uploaded in pieces. :P

Anyway, here's the Habsburg Autonomous Republics of South Africa.

Not much Historical Divergence here Considering this is before the Anglo-Boer Wars, but it can probably be summed up as:
-British Empire Occupies the cape colony during the Napoleonic wars for fear of France using the Cape colony for attacks on British holdings [Due to the siege and occupation of the Netherlands (just like OTL)].

-In response to the British Occupation, many dutch settlers move north (in turn "providing" room for English settlers to arrive in the cape colony, making the south very Anglicized)

-Habsburg empire re-incorporates the Netherlands at the end of the Napoleonic wars, and in turn re-asserts itself over the new Northern Dutch Republics.

I'll add more when i have the time.

If you have any questions or suggestions feel free to ask/tell.

By Dutch do you mean the Dutch from Europe or the Boers?
