How You Can Contribute
Any and all original alternate histories are permitted here. You are welcome to contribute any pages you wish, whether it be a minor sketch of an alternate history or an entire story that's fully-fleshed out. Should you have suggestions or material you'd wish to add to an existing alt-history, please contact the author to discuss integration, or propose it on the discussion pages. Please make sure you understand the typical definition of Alternate History, found in the What is Alternate History page. While Future Histories are interesting, as is Science Fiction, these are not within the scope of our wiki. Note that only those timelines which are created by the author should be posted and not those which are derivative work.

While at this time we are only exhibiting pages relating to our Alternate histories, we aren't ruling out the possibilities of discussion, or description pages to help would-be alt-historians get off to a good start.

Please read and adhere to the Conventions in use in this wiki before you start contributing!

"Cabotia" in "Cabotia and Brasil"

Cabotia and Brasil

In 1492, Christopher Columbus went to the court of Isabella of Castile and Ferdinand of Aragon, asking for help in an enterprise to sail west and reach the Indies. The King and Queen are not convinced, and Columbus leaves for France where his luck is no better.

The Discovery of Cabotia: In 1497, Italian explorer John Cabot lead an expedition to Asia and disembarked in the land currently known as Cabotia (OTL North America), and claimed it to England. A second expedition led by Cabot was lost.

The Discovery of Brasil: In 1500, Pedro Álvares Cabral led an expedition which disembarked on Brasil (OTL South America), claiming the land for Portugal. Ferdinand Magellan, in 1514, discovered the strait that bears his name and explored the Neptunic (OTL Pacific) coast of Brasil and southern Cabotia.
