What If WWI/WWII Hadn't Happened?
Figure this would be interesting, especially if people who live in the relevant countries share their views:
How would the monarchies of Germany, Austria, Russia, Hungary, Yugoslavia, Italy, etc. have turned out today if they hadn't been overthrown after World Wars I and II?
Would the monarchs have ended up being purely symbolic figureheads, with a vibrant democracy, as in Western Europe, or would monarchs have kept real power? Would the Czar in Russia have turned out like Putin? If those monarchs had held on to real power, would those countries have still ended up as democracies?
I'd say we know how Romania and Bulgaria would have turned out since their kings are still around and are still active, but how about the rest?
