This timeline is a timeline that I will build until some date, and then it will become a live one.

The live news will start in 2014 and will be detailed.

Basically, here is what happens : a revolution happens in 1909 Germany and, after the treaty of Bern, Germany cedes Elsass-Lothringen to France and, in counterpart, is allowed to join the Entente. After this Russia creates the "Alliance of the Four Empires" with the Ottoman Empire, the Austro-Hungarian Empire and the Chinese Empire. What will happen in this World War I? What will happen after?
