Slavic Western Europe by GTD-Orion Slavic Western Europe by GTD-Orion
In this alternate-history map you can see modern-day Europe where, supposedly, the Slavs here migrated far into Western Europe during the whole migration era ( back when the Roman Empire collapsed ). So the Germanic people moved southwards, Balts expanded in the area the Slavs left, etc. And now you have would-be-France as a Polish ( Lechian ) state, for example. Or would-be-Germany as Russia ( Rus ). Or an Anglian "England" in the Mediterranean sea.

Also, the Muslim conquests ( 7th-8th Century ) never happened.

Please DON'T take this map seriously. Hopefully I won't decide to make anything this silly ever again.

----------

This was made using GIMP v2. I used the Victoria II world map ( fan-made, as far as I know ) as a basemap for the territory and geography shapes.

The font used isn't made by me - I found it on DaFont.

I love it, really cool. Very well designed. It's like something straight out of the cold war plans.

Very interesting, tho I donīt think all that germanic tribes would only settle in Italy and Spain and expell the romanic people, maybe they would move to Scandinavia, England and whole France.

interesting concept. I wouldn't think that the Germanics would head south, but rather north. What would have happened to the Roman people?

Same thing that happened in real history. Just sooner, I guess.

I do have one complaint though: It's a bit hard to read. If you could make another one with an easier to read print, that'd be awesome!

But I do love how you have Yugoslavia in south France and Bulgaria in Denmark

It does look strange. And it also seemed like a Byzantine successor state also survived.
