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!

"How the little piglets would grunt if they knew how the old boar suffered"

Ragnar Lodbroks död by Hugo Hamilton

Ragnar Lodbrok (Old Norse: Ragnarr Loðbrók), legendary Norse hero, is dying. Gradually the snakes wrap around his body, and he dies a slow death, his last words escaping with his dying breath. Ælla of Northumbria watches, having slain his foe and condemned him to a painful death. The Norseman shall never again plague his shores. Little does Ælla know however of the retaliation that will follow, the wrath of Ragnar's sons. So ends the tale of Ragnar Lodbrok, but it is only beginning of the Ragnarssona þáttr the Tale of Ragnar's Sons, as they seek out their ultimate revenge. War would be brought to the British Isles, with a Great Heathen Army upon its door. Years of devastation plague Britain, leading to the Norse carving their own nations out of the fragile British kingdoms. The fate of the British Isles and Scandinavia, and later the world, is greatly changed.

This timeline uses many legends and Norse sagas as sources for its foundation. Since records and accurate sources are hard to acquire for this time, many things are based on speculation or local folklore, and may not be completely correct. Despite this, this timeline sets out to create an interesting scenario, using as many records as possible to create what the time period of this timeline's point of divergence may have looked like.
