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.

Anglia = Albion.

Here Albion - Celtic ( well, the name Albion itself is ancient Greek, and Alba is celtic ), while Anglia - Anglo-Saxon.

Oh wait, you are right, England itself in fact has rather Anglo-Saxon roots than Celtic.

Isn't 'Albion' a Latin name by the way?

No idea. It seems to be of Celtic origins. Probably latinized.

It's highly mixed society, both of Celts and Roman ones, they just turned to Christianity after rule of the Western Roman Empire - in fact, no one is 100% sure about roots of England. I had went to English Philology and no one is sure for 100%.
