-> ''Save France, save the world.''

[[http://www.alternatehistory.com/discussion/showthread.php?t=161590 Read it here]].

Written by @/{{AnalyticalEngine}}, '''Vive la Francewank''' is one of a series of [[AlternateHistory alternate history]] timelines in the so-called "[[http://wiki.alternatehistory.com/doku.php/timelines/the_strangerverse Strangerverse]]", and hosted on ''Website/AlternateHistoryDotCom''.

The basic premise is that a [[TimeTravel time traveller]] [[AfterTheEnd from the future]] has gone back in time to 1617, and gives king Louis XIII a mission : [[TakeOverTheWorld Unite the world]] under UsefulNotes/{{France}} [[SaveThisPersonSaveTheWorld to save it]] by preventing an [[ApocalypseHow apocalyptic]] [[WorldWarIII war]] from happening in 2258.

----
!!Historical characters who appear or are referenced in the timeline:

* Blase Pascal
* [[TheHouseOfStuart Charles I of England and Scotland]]
* Louis XIII of France
* Marin Mersenne
* Pierre de Fermat
* René Descartes
* Cardinal Richelieu

** [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters And a host of others...]]

----
!!This AlternateHistory timelime provides examples of :

* AChildShallLeadThem[=/=]RegentForLife: Following the French victory in the Alt-War of the Spanish Succession, this is (mostly) the case in the Italian/Flemish domains.
* AlienSpaceBats
* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation[[invoked]]: [[spoiler: King Louis XIII is cured of his madness before it even starts. Descartes discovers much of what Sir Isaac Newton did in OTL, but a generation earlier]]
* AlternateHistoryWank: ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin
* AntiVillain: Cardinal Richelieu. Yes, that one...
* AppliedPhlebotinum: The various gifts the Stranger grants to the king.
* AuthorityEqualsAssKicking[=/=] WarriorPrince: This happened a lot during the 17th and 18th centuries.
* AwesomeMomentOfCrowning
* BadassArmy: With an unfair tech advantage, the French Army is definitely one. Ironically, so is the ''[[DidntSeeThatComing English]]'' army...
* BalkanizeMe: [[spoiler:Russia]] has been partitioned up by its neighbours.
* BilingualBonus: Many things are referred to in French, with an appropriate footnote.
* ButtMonkey: Russia. [[spoiler:Poor, poor Russia]]...
* EnglishCivilWar: Rather shorter due to Charles I getting a cannonball to the chest.
* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses: [[ArrangedMarriage Arranged Marriages]] were a common part of diplomacy during this period.
* HistoricalDomainCharacter: Louis XIII being the main one.
* HundredPercentAdorationRating: Lampshaded. France has had rather less civil unrest, though that was more due to charisma enhancement...
* HypnoTrinket: The rings.
* KingBobTheNth: Well, it is Bourbon France after all. [[CaptainObvious They weren't big on originality when it came to names]]...
* LEtatCestMoi: Played with. [[spoiler: the alternate Louis XIV is anything but the Sun King though]]
* MotherRussiaMakesYouStrong: Subverted, massively.
* PeoplesRepublicOfTyranny: [[spoiler:Federation of People's Republics]] and the [[spoiler:Italian People's Republic]]
* PolesWithPoleaxes: Poland is kicking some serious arse in TTL.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: The French kings at least try to be this.
* RoyallyScrewedUp: With the alternate equivalent to Charles II of Spain, no less.
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: The kings of France serve as heads of the Order of St. Denis.
* SecretCircleOfSecrets: Subverted. The Order of St. Denis are good guys, for a [[MoralDissonance given value of good]].
* ShownTheirWork: As evidenced by the copious footnotes, sometimes covering almost half of a given post's word count.
* SuccessionCrisis: Russia. More recently, the UsefulNotes/WarOfTheSpanishSuccession.
* TakeOverTheWorld: This is the basic premise of the timeline. Indeed, the eventual goal is for an ''[[OneWorldOrder Un ordre mondial]].''
* TimeTravel
* TheFederation: How the [[spoiler:Federation of People's Republics]] sees itself.
* TheRevolutionWillNotBeBureaucratized: Subverted. The revolution in the [[spoiler:Federation of People's Republics]] was ''started'' thanks to many of its supporters being entrenched in the existing bureaucracy
* TheRevolutionWillNotBeCivilized
* TheWisePrince: Played with, since the king has a considerable benefit of hindsight.
* UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans: One of the core beliefs of the [[spoiler:Federation of People's Republics]].
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Charles I of England/Scotland.
