East Asia

1820s: King Gioacchino starts hiring Indian soldiers to improve control over his vast empire.

1826: More than 20,000 killed in Nippon by Tsunami.

Muslim world

1820s: An independence movement develops in rural Greece (supported by Russians, often via the Orthodox church). The cities, however, stay firmly in Seljuk hand - 250 years with a printing press have assimilated most of the upper and upper middle class.

1824: Dawudid dynasty of Choresm dies out. A council temporarily takes over the reign - but not for long.

1827: After committing a scandalous act, sultan Kay Khusrau XI is deposed by the Wali (prime minister) and beheaded. This act strengthens the Jumhuriya movement (which proposes an Islamic republic, and connects political Islam with Seljuk nationalism).

1828-34: After a payment of tribute was missed, Novorossiya conquers and subjugates Choresm.

1832-39: Suez Canal built.

1835: After anti-Jewish pogroms in North Africa, a delegation of rabbis approaches the emperor. He offers the Jews a home at the Sinai, as close to biblical Israel as possible without moving right in, to form a buffer against the Persian empire and to guard the Suez canal. This marks the beginning of the Jewish state. (This is not completely un-selfish: The Jewish traders can be replaced by Italians, thus strengthening their influence.)

1838-40: Morocco conquered by New Rome after Muslim uprising. (Fled) Spanish royal family exiled to Braseal. Emperor Alessandro has the old Holy City of Kairouan (Tunisia) re-secrated for the Muslim pilgrims.

1839: Shah Inayatullah IV of Persia toppled by his son Inayatullah V.

Russian lands

Flood at the area of OTL Leningrad, kills many people in the cities there which I didn't work out.

1834: When Russia diplomatically clashes with Hungary, emperor Alessandro fears Russia invading Hungary at the wrong time. So he suggests the Hungarian Division: Austria goes to Germany, Croatia to New Rome, Transsylvania becomes a Russian protectorate. New Rome also acquires most of OTL Slovenia (which was once Austrian, until Austria was inherited by Hungary in 1816), so Germany is cut off from the Adria.

1838/39: After Poles rise up against Russian occupation, Novorossiya attacks and conquers all of Poland. The last king flees to Sweden, later to Britain.

Europe

1820: German parliament decides that Walter Meier mustn't return to Germany. The German politicians criticize that he worked as a tribute collector for the French, that he didn't manage to include Nassau, Switzerland, the Rhineland, Prussia, Austria and the Dutch into Germany, and many are simply envious.

1823: Alessandro Napoleoni who was appointed successor of king Gioacchino, declares himself New Roman emperor. He plans to unite the lands of the old Roman empire (in Western Europe at least), but also thinks about new colonies.

Germany gives itself the first constitution, after having discussed it for years.

Germany and New Rome make a treaty of friendship.

1825: Flood around Hamburg. Water measured to be about five meters higher than usual.

1825-27: Rhenish War. Germany and Switzerland defeat France; Rhineland, Alsace-Lorraine, German-speaking Luxemburg, western Switzerland ceded by France. The long (more than 50 years!) French influence still proves to be hard to overcome, and many people decide to emigrate from the "liberated" lands to France.

1827: After the Rhenish War, France has to give Western and Eastern Frisia independence. Frisia becomes part of Germany and a refugium for Dutch nationalists fleeing from the French. In 1840, Frisia becomes part of the Netherlands again after they become independent.

1830: Death of grand duke Adolf Ignaz II of Nassau. (In his Bohemian exile, Walter Meier triumphs: "Adolf Nazi [1] is dead!") A plebiscite about the future in the country makes Nassau a republic, which is soon united with Germany (thus gaining the important Ruhr area). Britain protests, since the king now holds (thanks to various marriages of the Royal Family with expelled German princes and princesses) claims to Nassau (and other German states).

[1] No kidding - "Nazi" was once used as a short form of Ignaz.

1830s: "Railroad mania" starts in Britain.

1833: Death of last Bourbon king Sigismond / Zsigmond III of Hungary.

1835: Emperor Alessandro introduces the French calendar (equivalent to OTL World Calendar), metric lengths and weights in the New Roman Empire. The Germans soon follow suit.

1832-36:Anti-British War of allied New Rome, Germany, German Atlantis and Canada. Unexpectedly, the Imperial Navy proves to be stronger than the Royal Navy, thanks to the numerous fights against Spanish Navy-in-exile. In the peace of Roma Nuova, Britain has to cede Newfoundland to Canada and its lands in South Atlantis, which are divided along the Tropic of Capricorn: Braseal goes to New Rome, the Germans receive Argentine as a place for settlement (from now on, more often called Argentinien). Patagonia, being uninteresting for the victors, becomes independent Aymaria.

1837: Texas added to New Rome.

First German settlers arrive in Argentinien. The British upper class is kicked out, while the ordinary Brits are assimilated with time.
