Interesting that Sweden managed to colonise that much of this world of yours. They are a naval power I guess? Good effort from them :D This is making me want to do my own alternate histories... gah. Top work :)

Thank you very much!
Sweden did much better, yes. Charles XII got nearly killed in battle, which hammered some sense into his stubborn head.
I would like to see your AH world! Go on and create! ;-)

I don't have worked out this very much, so I have no idea about further colonies.

Very nice map, especially the place names.
This place is going to be very very interesting in about 150 years.

It reminds me of an alternate world I was working on a couple months ago, where a Hanoverian succeeded to the throne who greatly increased British influence in northern Europe, creating a somewhat similar colonial situation, although replacing Denmark and Sweden with Britain-Hanover and Prussia.

This is a Britain-Netherlands-Denmark mix.

Britavia-Danmark?

A union between the UK and Denmark?

Britain and Netherlands = Britavia + Denmark.

And it seems the Germans (Austrians?) have some colonial muscle now.

Indeed. The HRE gets more centralised in this TL.

There's a Counterweight continent on Discworld.

Sapiento Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
Ah, yes, now I remember. No, it is an hommage to the old theories of having a counterweight landmass in the south to balance the old world.

Ah, well I guess Pratchett got the idea from the same theories.

Uhm, isn't it spelled 'Denmark' instead of 'Danmark'?
Great map though! :)

In this TL there is a dynastic and political Union between Britain and Denmark which led to the use of the Danish word.

Nothing to be sorry off, that's not obvious from the map.

I just noticed the name 'Britavia'. I see what you did there...
I'm planning on uploading some of my own universes in the near future. They're just no use when all they do is spinning around in my head. Gotta write/draw things down!
