A map showing an Eastern Roman (Byzantine) Empire, known as 'Rhomania' that not only survived but prospered, becoming one of the world's great powers again and building up a colonial empire around the Indian Ocean. The double red/brown lines are railways.
Where does the name "Rhodesia" come from in this timeline? OTL it comes from that one British guy called Cecil Rhodes.
Probably from the island of Rhodes
Seems plausible; still, why would an area in Central Africa be named after a Mediterranean Island?
I likes it; who's ruling in Irak/Mesopotamia, by the way?
I wonder...what's the position of OTL European powers here?
Especially, say, Britain and France--the rush for the Americas in particular would be VERY interesting to see in this timeline, methinks. (Byzantine/Rhomanians working with the American Revolutionaries? Conflicts with Russia over Alaska? Trade disputes in the Caribbean?)
Arabia a republic? I think i have some cheese on the can sell you.
I've always wondered why the romans never moved along and beyond the Red Sea. Their whole empire was built around a sea; its not as if they don't know how to sail. They were no strangers to colonialism either, or else there would be no Romania.
Glorious, simply glorious! Out of couriosity how do the rhomanians handle the various non-christian peoples in their domain? In OTL they were fairly tolerant of jews and muslims within thier borders (compared to western europe of the time at least).
yay go Rhomania go!
Why East India? Wouldn't it make more sense for them to take West India, to profit from the lucrative pepper trade?
i like the idea ^^ Nice Work
Yay maps. Can you put a link for Isaac's Empire here? I could not find it in google. Yes I am very ashamed of not bookmarking it.
