Fraternité en Rébellion
Fraternité en Rébellion is a Hearts of Iron IV mod set in the flames of 1933. In this alternate history timeline the French Revolution is narrowly avoided through the combination of wiser policy directions, a tougher stance on governance and a little stroke of luck. Its flames of liberté, égalité, fraternité never cut across Europe and the liberal thought of the Enlightenment is in time overshadowed by the continued hegemony of the Church and the Divine Right. Through oppression of the masses and suppression of the intellectuals, the absolutist monarchs of Ancien Europe cement their grip on power throughout the 19th century. However, the old order shall soon tremble - with Berlin erupting into a popular revolt, Prussia became a republic by 1880. Before them, Britain had transitioned into a liberal republic in the 1860s, reforming its Empire into a visionary Commonwealth. The revolutionaries vowed to spread the once extinguished ideals of the Enlightenment across Europe and the world. Now, in a Europe torn between ideological fault lines, a Great War seems inevitable, in a Europe split in two.
