In September 1956 just before the Suez Crisis. French Prime Minister Guy Mollet met up with British Prime Minister Anthony Eden in London. Mollet proposed a union between the United Kingdom and the French Union with Elizabeth II as head of state and a common citizenship. As an alternative, Mollet proposed that France join the Commonwealth. British Prime Minister Anthony Eden rejected both proposals and France went on to join the Treaty of Rome, which established the European Economic Community and strengthened the Franco-German cooperation.

But what if Eden accepted Mollet's first offer? What if this would lead to a major global power known as the Franco-British Union.
Franco-British Union

As Britain and France decided to stick together, the Suez War ended in British/French\Israeli victory. Following the end war the Governments of the United Kingdom and France started to hold serious talks of a possible merger between the two countries.

The constitution of the Union will provide for joint organs of defence, foreign, financial and economic policies. Every citizen of France will enjoy immediately citizenship of Great Britain, every British subject will become a citizen of France..
