I am quite pleased with this scenario. I know exactly what happened here, but I'm curious to see how all of you interpret this map. Type in the comments what you think this scenario is and Ill tell you how right, or wrong, you were.

Vandalia?
...I'm interested, though it's probably not what I was thinking of.

In OTL it was a proposed British colony in present day West Virginia and eastern Tennessee. It was named in honor of Queen Charlotte, thought to be a descendant of the Vandals. An alternate name was "Westsylvania". Now that I think about it, Westsylvania might have been better, but I'm still okay with Vandalia.

A descendant of the Vandals? That's strange. It's not very possible, and I don't know why they would want to say that. The Vandals didn't have the best reputation then.

I didn't say it was likely, only that they thought so and proposed it as the name of a colony.

I did about 5 minutes of research and thought up this very poor explanation. Tracing back Queen Charlotte's ancestry on her father's side, I could go back to 1090 to Niklot, a pagan chief of a slavic group in modern Mecklenburg. He was an ancestor of the House of Mecklenburg, which is where Queen Charlotte came from before being married to King George III of England. Until pretty recently, "King of the Wends" was part of Denmark's and Sweden's monarchical titles. The Wends were a group of Western Slavic people who also formerly lived in Mecklenburg. In Latin, "King of the Wends" is translated to "vandalorum rex", which also happens to mean "King of the Vandals". Because of this, it might have been believed that there was at least a possibility that the House of Mecklenburg, and thereby Queen Charlotte, were descended from the Vandals.

This isn't a very good explanation, and I didn't think to just look up "Was Queen Charlotte a descendant of the Vandals?", but at least it gives some background. I don't really understand why they would want her to be a Vandal, but hey, more power to'em.

Now I understand, but it's kind of silly still.

Actually, your wrong. Its VERY silly, but just because its silly that doesn't mean that it didn't happen. For whatever reason, they tried to name the colony "Vandalia" in honor of her. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vandalia…

I see. And would you care to explain why you brought up my "wrong"?
