    Election maps and assorted others

    Does Countess Markievicz not count because the First Dail didn't have the uncontested consent of its claimed territory, then? Although neither did the Bolsheviks, come to think of it. Or perhaps you're counting the Republic as non-parliamentary because the Dail hardly ever actually met?

    I dunno, man “What sort of music do you like, granddad?” “Aw well, you have to understand that I grew up in Derby. Which, in, sort of, late Noughties, early Teens, was the absolute epicentre of the neo-post-skiffle craze.” “The - ?” “Yeah, so you had groups like… Uttoxeter Health Club - The...

    Lists of Heads of Government and Heads of State

    I think you can learn a lot about Tim from the fact that his only steady jobs have been Mayor and Driveway Concrete Pourer In West Auckland, both of which require significant levels of good humour and tenacity.

    General Fruity Creek, yes. Rivera was the founder of the Colorado Party and one of the leaders of the Independence struggle. A landowner and power-hungry caudillo, he is renowned as the codifier of the Colorados' urban liberal outlook because he was defeated in the interior by Manuel Oribe and...

    The Constitutional Convention election of June 1916 provided the first electoral defeat for the Colorados in half a century - and, to make things worse, there was a general election due the following January. Some factors pointed in the Colorados' favour. Viera's Halt of all progressive...

    WI: Portuguese Fleet Capsizes, 1808

    I mentioned them upthread - I personally don't think people would rally around an 11 year old girl with no legal right to the throne as a wartime leader, tbh. I'm landing on either a prominent nobleman, not necessarily related the thr Braganzas, or a random foreign prince chosen by Britain as...

    WI: Portuguese Fleet Capsizes, 1808

    Britain probably isn't going to do an armed intervention unless some local commander goes mental (i.e. Rio de la Plata, 1806) or the government in London gets lobbied for decades (i.e. the planned invasion of Venezuela, 1808). There's also no real incentive for them to intervene, as any...

    More Uruguayan content, this time the elections for the Constitutional Assembly in 1916. The strongest personality in Uruguayan politics in the first quarter of the twentieth century was Jose Batlle y Ordonez, the liberal reformer who smashed a Blanco rebellion in 1903 and forced them to...

    WI: Portuguese Fleet Capsizes, 1808

    The thought did cross my mind - after all, the House of Braganza and the House of Aviz were both founded by bastards. There were a few acknowledged illegitimate children of the House of Braganza, but the only line still around in 1808 was the family of Miguel, son of Pedro II (great-grandfather...

    WI: Portuguese Fleet Capsizes, 1808

    Apologies, this is going to be an incredibly 'Who Would The HMS Hood Marry' post, but I got thinking last night about who would be the heir to the Portuguese throne in 1808 if things had gone rather worse for J o a o. For the uninitiated, Portugal tried to remain neutral for as long as possible...

    Kimkatya's Beige Dungeon, A Test Thread

    He was indeed a Carlist, and was given a decoration (the Order of Outlawed Legitimacy) by Sixto Enrique, the brane genius who bases his claim on being the most senior legitimate heir except for his nephew, who isn't eligible for the throne because he isn't sufficiently right-wing. There's a bit...

    I'm going to conclude this run with 1971, partly because this is a bit too much effort to put in just for Max's benefit, but mostly because it was the last election held before the 1973 military coup. As you might expect from the fact that there was a military coup, things weren't going...

    The 1966 election was a slightly unusual one, in that it featured a constitutional referendum whose result would apply to the election that was being held. The UBD government opened the floor to a reform of the Executive to return from a Colegiado to a Presidential system, and all the...
