Introduction

This is my 3rd article. It involves adding pioneer Renaissance figures to selected nations of Europe: Italy, Spain, France, Germany, England, and Russia. In current history as we know it, the Renaissance, which is said to have originated in Florence, Italy, took quite a while for the most part to be spread outside of Italy, although it entered certain nations like Spain earlier on, as I recall. This thread entails shortening this process, hence the introduction of additional pioneer Renaissance men. As can be inferred from the following paragraphs, the Renaissance goes from Italy to Spain around 1375, as well as other nations afterward, leading up to its entry into Russia around 1395. After the Renaissance enters Russia, there is a highly mobilized mainstream process that spreads it to the rest of Europe, a process finalizing by around 1400.

Note

  • All the names in these lists were invented, with the exceptions of Dante, Giotto, Petrarch, and Boccaccio in the Italian Renaissance list. Of these four, Dante and Petrarch are famous, Giotto and Boccaccio being somewhat as such.

Change rough-draft surname for Spanish sculptor Pablo, because Pablo Escobar, as I just found out, is the name of an evidently well-known Columbian drug lord!

How do you come up with/determine the changes to the timeline, and why? Interesting that you're very specific about some things.

How? I've come up with all this stuff and determined the changes based on knowledge I've accumulated over the years about how things are right now. Don't underestimate my intelligence. (joking) 😉

Why? The bottom line is, I want to make the world a better, more interesting place. I also want to expand numerous aspects of culture and prevent history from repeating itself. 🙂
