This timeline overviews alterations to many events in world history. Some include literature happening ahead of its own time, others would include super heroes coming to life. These events will include a more positive and progressive history in mankind's life.
Man rises from the Dinosaurs' ashes
Man still evolves to dominate the world after the dinosaurs die out. Many things go the way the already have, with only some small change:
One caveman discovers how to make fire to warm other men, light the darkness, and heat the foods they eat. However, one change is that the caveman is depicted with a flaming torch on the walls of the cave he lived in, honored by man around him.
The earliest painting
Cavemen become the 1st painters. The painting, which becomes one of the earliest paintings in mankind's history, is the portrait of a family of prehistoric people (a caveman, his wife, a daughter, and a son). As one of the first paintings in history, family portraits rise to high arts, museums get filled with portraits of family from from the past from all over the world. Eventually, the same family in the portrait was found in the arctic, frozen in a block of ice. A research vessel then transported them to Sea World in California, USA, for further research.
The 1st 'Museum'
Another grand wonder and mystery of prehistoric man was in one cave that remained hidden in North America until 2003. The walls of the cave were adorned with cave paintings of events in history that had yet to happen: these included the Colosseum (Ancient Rome), a pyramid and Sphinx (Ancient Egypt), a Medieval Castle (Middle Ages), Mona Lisa (outline, Renaissance), Santa Maria (Columbus' voyage), George Washington (American Revolution), the American and Confederate flags crossed against each other (American Civil War), and the Nazi swastika (WW2). The roots of these paintings were said to have been foretold by a shaman of the cave tribes, who was said to have seen the future during his time. Nevertheless, the discovery of this 'prehistoric museum' boggled scientists and archaeologists alike and is still being studied today.
Spartacus rises from the tragedy of being taken from his parents and learns to fight to take his revenge. He's bought as a slave to Calbertia, the daughter of Cicero. There, he and the young girl fall in love and eventually escape from the palace. They then gather up the slaves to revolt against the Roman Empire, but the fail. Having survived, Spartacus and Calbertia eventually marry, have children of their own, while Spartacus fights as an arena gladiator until his death.
Queen of the Nile
During her reign over Egypt, Cleopatra rises to grant full rights and privileges, similar to men.
The Child Pharaoh
After finding true love, King Tutankhamen, the child pharaoh of Egypt, is almost poisoned by his grand vizier, Ay. His spirit, was said to have adventured through the underworld, gathering idles of the gods to place at the exit to open it while fighting off Set and other dangers. Upon leaving, Tut returns to his body and exposes Ay as a traitor. Later, Ay tries to wield Set's powers and transforms into a fierce creature whom Tut fights and defeats.
The Greeks have the 1st Olympic games and they invite other civilizations of the time (BC China, Israel, Babylon, the Roman Empire, the Indus Valley, and Egypt) to join in. Other than the promise of eternal life, the winners gained either bronze, silver, or golden armor (as a precursor to medals) and the tradition of inviting others to participate in the games continues as a way to ensure peace between nations.
Pythagoras, the Great philosopher and leader of his time, studied to solve life's great secrets. As he traveled, he started to look into the methods of reincarnation. During those days, he realized that while the body dies, the soul lives on to seek a new host body. However, the memories of the soul's past life disappear. In rare cases, though, any lingering memories of the soul's past life could appear to the new subject as dreams or nightmares.
Pythagoras also looked into the establishment of an equal and just government with shared properties. Where no one would be superior or have more or less than others. He also paved way for mathematical ways to solve right triangles. As his life would progress, Pythagoras' work would influence people such as Plato. Like many men who came after him, Pythagoras came up with the theory that the Earth was spherical, not flat, and that it and the other planets revolved in orbit around the sun.
The great playwright, Homer, presents plays that Greeks had never before imagined. He reinvents the myth of Heracles, describes the 'dawn of a new age' during the Iron Age, and brings grand yet tragic stories with Horus, the Tradegy of Patraus, The Tempest, and Pharnaces & Juliet.
In 2 centuries following the visit of Marco Polo and his brothers to China, the land flourishes. In fact, so does the art of theater in both opera and shadow plays. Wang Jiusi is praised for his story and how they're performed.
The Maid of Orleans
Joan of Arc becomes the savior of France. When she is nearly burned at the stake for witchcraft, angels from the heavens saved her. She was then endowed with magic she can use to liberate and protect France. After escaping, the newly crowned king of France names her one of his knights. So she may fight for France and protect it until death. God saves her from unjust execution and an invasion from China comes. Rouge Chinese generals invade Europe, starting with France. So Joan and her men become instrumental to the defeat of the generals, earning more fame for Joan.
Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo become the best of friends and paint and sculpt artistic marvels beyond even the finest of their time. Later on, da Vinci puts in the time and effort needed to build his 'flying machines' and other inventions. He presents the Duke of Florence with his 'mobile artillery', the very 1st tank to be incorporated into the military forces. Using pedals to power his 'sky screw' (the earliest helicopter), da Vinci and his helpers deliver crates of Italian wine to the Emperor of China (making the 1st 'manned' flight). The following year, da Vinci used another machine (with maneuverable wings based off his studies with birds) staged the 2 manned flight, but the 1st to transport travailing passengers. Having extended the machine with an extra set of wings to hold multiple people, Leonardo flies a number of people to England.
With the assassination of Oliver Cromwell in 1608, the religious reformers debated on who to lead them. At the same time, they were losing patience with the rowdy side of the winter holiday, Christmas (thinking that too much fun would extinguish their religious souls and faith). However, those who feared the religious reformers' takeover of England chose to do away with them by burning their building to the ground. No records were found if the arsonists were ever caught.
William Shakespeare, England's renowned playwright, lives longer and takes the stage with many plays (Much Ado About Nothing, Julius Caesar, etc.), but he doesn't stop there. One night, Shakespeare's head is filled with visions of inspiration from the most famous series of plays by Homer, Star Wars. When Christmas time comes to England again, Shakespeare precedes the holiday with a tale that would influence Christmas for generations to come, A Christmas Carol. Shakespeare's works would go down in history even before our time, such much, that the actors from his plays would form a group that would travel the world performing Shakespeare's great plays everywhere they went.
Colonization and Revolution
After the success of the Jamestown colonies during the 12th century after Leif Erikson's discovery, England spread her people across the North American continent, as did Spain and France. As time passed, the people of the colonies grew farther away from the way of life that they started with. They spoke out against governors and nobles, demanding liberty. When it wasn't given to them, they took action with the Boston Tea Party, skirmish battles at Lexington and Concord, and eventually the Declaration of Independence. Following the early protests, English Loyalists tried to cut down Boston's Liberty Tree, but they failed thanks to those who vowed to protect it. This escalated into a war against England, where the colonial army was led by George Washington. Sometime after the war, many in America decided they needed to make their own marks on world culture; art, music, theater, law, etc. One man named Al Funcoot, took that into his own hands and became America's earliest playwright.
After that, Washington became America's 1st elected leader, the President of the United States of America. During his Presidency, Washington and his wife, Martha, came to their doorstep to find 3 orphaned boys (one 4-year-old, one 3-year-old, and one infant), all were brothers who'd lost their family in the war. The Washingtons kindly adopt them as their own sons (oldest Robert Noah, middle Jake Vikeman, youngest William Arthur). One rumor during the Washington administration was that God came to Washington a spoke to him, giving him a task; build an ark for a coming flood.
At the start of the 19th century, Napoleon Bonaparte came into power in France and attempted to conquer the world. After some conquests across Europe and Africa, Napoleon set his sites on the American homeland. So he loaded all his ships up with artillery and men and set sail for America. At that time, John Hancock, America's 4th President, led American forces to stop Napoleon and send him away. Before then, Thomas Jefferson, an old friend of Washington from the Revolution, was the President. During that time, Jefferson, in Virginia, publicly gives his slaves legal freedom and rights and privileges to them. Many people (political and citizen) were surprised by this, in either a negative of positive way. After this, Jefferson sets an example that 'all men are created equal' does indeed mean all men, no matter their religion or skin tone. With Jefferson's Virginia Address, American slavery ended for good, setting an example not only for America, but the world as well.
Years later, the 1st World War saw the rise of a new hero, Abraham Lincoln. He leads America to help her allies against would-be dictators and escapes assassination to advance the rights of America's former slaves, which eventually leads to Frederick Douglas to become the first black man to enter the White House. During his 1st year in office, Douglas continued Lincoln's work in the 1st world war. Russian Tsar Alexander II and German Chancellor Otto Von Bismarch both looked to 'make the world peaceful', but in an extreme way. To protect the world and their homelands from the would-be conquerors, Queen Victoria of England and US Presidents Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglas rally their armies in their own alliance and the world war had begun.
The New Century
As the 1900s hundreds rolled around, America started growing and growing. However, it falls into a state of Great Depression, crime, and eventually, and another world war. German Chancellor, Adolf Hitler, made alliances with Japan and Italy to conquer the world, until Russia, England, and America stepped up to stop them. As technology advanced, so did America's government policies.
