Have in mind that, other than the point of divergence and the consequences of it, the setting must still be close to the real world. A real time period filled with unrealistic stuff at all corners is not alternate history, it's something else. For example, the middle ages filled with elves, dwarves, orcs and magic is a MedievalEuropeanFantasy, and a more modern setting with them is an UrbanFantasy. If the point of divergence is an unrealistic event (for example, "what if an advanced alien ship crashed in Germany during WWII and the nazis got all sorts of alien techs from it?"), then see WeirdHistoricalWar.
