In 1907 The Academy of Fine Arts Vienna accepted the enrollment of a man named Adolf Hitler. Many years later, we find a world vastly different from our own. With a resurgent Byzantine Empire on the rise, a not always so Cold War being fought between the United Nations and Central Security Pact. Though World War II, has never occurred, the world has seemed to find a way to incorporate just as much hardship across the Earth.

that is more or less actually what it is,
During the Bulgarian coup d'état of 1923, Prime Minister Aleksandar Stamboliyski convinced Tsar Boris to flee to Byzantium and set up a government in exile. In the aftermath of the coup the Bulgarian Communist Party began an uprising in late August, quickly gaining steam with Soviet support. Seeing an opportunity Constantine offers to help the Bulgarian Government in exile, the government accepted, and in early September 1923 the Treaty of Thessaloniki was signed between the two governments. The Royal Hellenic Army, invaded in late September, catching both the fascists and communists by surprise, and with the support of loyalist forces, by early December victory had been achieved, and coup leader Aleksandar Tsankov
fled the country. With Byzantine forces occupying the country, Constantine had gained a enormous amount of power over Bulgaria. Bulgaria is more or less subsequently forced into signing the Treaty of Varna, which established the dual monarchy and created the Byzantine-Bulgarian Empire.

The Union was rather short lived though because if the sudden death of the Bulgarian Tsar in 1925, which some people theorize may have been planned by Constantine. Upon one day after he Tsar's death, Constantine declared himself the sole ruler of the Byzantine Empire, of which Bulgaria was made into a province. Over the course of the next year several minor revolts occurred across Bulgaria but all of them were easily defeated. In order to avoid future conflict Constantine opted to compromise with Bulgarian officials, and the Linguistic Cooperative Act of 1925, was signed in late June, the treaty dictated that neither Bulgarian or Greek would be used in certain areas, and instead Latin, a neutral language with association with the empire, went into official use in some cases. this also factored into the paired Military Reorganization Act, which restructured the Byzantine Military into the "Novam Legionem Ratio", in which the largest level of organization was a Legion, which consisted of ten cohorts each with 10,000 men. In the beginning of 1926 the Empire had three legions of men, along with seven unassigned cohorts.

This hasn't been updated in the history here yet

Lakoma95 - Yet, I did not insult you at all, I was just telling you the facts. Here is the Greek population from where I look up for it : En.wikipedia.org.
I would rather say that you should seek help from psychologist, rather than me. Anyway, Greece still had greater population than Bulgaria and you are probably uneducated or just ignorant to look up to it.

Lakoma95 - I have no clue from what hole of the world you got those facts. As we said, after Greece defeats Turkey and forms Byzantine Empire, they would have ten times greater population than Bulgaria, they would probably have military support from France and United Kingdom (I did not read the lore). When the war breaks out, I'm very sure that Greeks would use Turkish population to fight the Bulgarians. In the Greek War of Independence, Greece defeated Turkey so hard in few battles, that Western Powers were amazed how such a small nation can defeat a great empire. Greeks almost never lost against Turkish peasants. Yes, they lost the "war" in 1925(we can't call that the war, we can call it the skirmish). If the League of Nations didn't interfere, Greece would probably win. In this timeline, after fall of Turkey, it's sure that Greece would win in less than a year. Also, Greek population in 1900 was 6,000,000 and in 1928 it was 6,204,684, so around 1920 they had 6,100,100 population (or something like that). I don't know where you got that information. Again, before you say something very stupid, you should check your facts, after all this is ALTERNATE TIMELINE. If you don't like it, then don't come here, not the place for people like you.
