Map requests

Often an article relating to alternate history can benefit from a map to describe the political changes to the world. For an example of some maps go here:Maps of Alternate histories. If you would like a map created, post a request below and an interested project member may assist you. The Alternate History Wiki has a bunch of blank maps that may be useful for this. [1]

  • 1632 (novel) - need a map that corresponds with Europe or the Holy Roman Empire of 1631-32.
  • Code Geass - needs a map for the Holy Britannian Empire, the Chinese Federation, the Euro Universe and the United Federation of Nations.
