Talk:Tejas

I think it highly unlikely that Tejas's independence from Mexico would "never" be recognised by Mexico. I'm sure they'd get over it soon enough. Especially given that Pt. V. Lobos presented gifts, such as a "ceremonial deed" to the newly crowned queen of Tejas! Elemtilas

This referes to the first independence. The second independence was recognized at the end of the Mejican civil war, in 1857. --Carlos Th (comments) 14:38, 22 Jul 2005 (PDT)

Why is the article proposalized? I thought that this was pretty much all established and part of QSS? BoArthur 12:22, 2 November 2005 (PST)

I'd say: go ahead and deproposalise it! --IJzeren Jan 13:05, 2 November 2005 (PST)
I think it was misunderstood that anything created before the wiki was not QSS, so Tejas' history, which had been estabished on the list was thought to be simply a proposal. -- Doobieous
And hoy-pollostanzimat! Tejas is no longer a "proposal". Most of the information in the article (apart from the Lithuanian immigrants) was pretty well established before the present Wiki came along. [PB]

Royal Alert

It turns out that *here* Marie Gabrielle has been dead since 13 November 2003.Theophilus88 09:15, 13 April 2006 (PDT)

I'm curious about that. Can you give a link? BoArthur
See the section on SOLMS-BRAUNFELS. Elemtilas 12:05, 13 April 2006 (PDT)
I should imagine she'd quite possibly follow...for some reason I thought our Marie Gabrielle was younger. Well. Padraic?
I think she's about 98, yes? Well, perhaps she should take it easy and retire this year. ;))) Anyway, there's an heir lined up so whenever it is decided that M-G should step off the stage of world politics, the next one in line has only to step up! I think her accension was really more of a "connection with the old royal past; bridge to the royal future" sort of thing. That she's been on the job for almost three years now is quite astonishing. Hardy old gal! Elemtilas 15:15, 13 April 2006 (PDT)

No reason she couldn't live just a little longer than *here*. Maybe her demise is impending *there*? Nik 23:25, 13 April 2006 (PDT)

Is there a significant date in Tejan history on which the transfer of power could take place?Theophilus88 13:44, 14 April 2006 (PDT)
Possibly the anniversary of her coronation? That would be the official date of Tejas's rebirth. Elemtilas 13:47, 14 April 2006 (PDT)
Any ideas about her possible successor? Zahir 12:09, 15 April 2006 (PDT)
In the article it says that it would be her great-grandson that would take over as ruler...BoArthur 10:04, 17 April 2006 (PDT)
So is it the consensus that Juan Carlos (born 1983) should be the new King of Tejas? Zahir 08:32, 15 June 2007 (PDT)
I imagine so, Herr Doktor. BoArthur 17:36, 15 June 2007 (PDT)

Map

Tejas map.PNG

Here's my tentative proposal for a map of Tejas' cities.

For the record, these are the names that are substantially different:

  • Resaca La Palma <--Neue Braunfels <-- Brownsville (already a New Braunfels in that area)
  • Carlshafen <-- Galveston
  • Houston <-- Santa Anna <-- Houston (though I've been told since that there are QSS news articles referring to "Houston")
  • San Agustin <-- Austin
  • Edessa <-- Odessa
  • Wilna <-- Waco (reflecting Lithuanian influences)
  • Adler <-- Abilene
  • Ciudad Las Vacas <-- Fort Worth
  • Teutoberg <-- Tyler
  • Tenehua <-- Laboque <-- Lubbock (but I'm really unsatisfied with this) (Renamed for a subdivision of the Comanche Nation)
  • Guachita <-- Wichita Falls, TX
  • Alburquerque <-- Albuquerque (reverting to original Spanish spelling)
  • Guacinca <-- Phoenix, AZ
  • Oneida <-- Amarillo (original name of city)
  • Cimarron <-- doesn't exist *here*; close to Satanta & Meade, KS
  • Quivira <-- Opposite Wichita, KS
  • Coloradac (French)/Gran Junta (Castilian) (within Alpes-Argentes)<--Deleted - Not within Tejas<-- Gran Junta <-- Grand Junction, CO (probably a Bushista renaming of something else)
  • Vado de Moapa <-- Moab, UT
  • Chucson <-- Tucson, AZ
  • Mesilla <-- Las Cruces, NM
  • Rio Taovayzes <-- Red River

Anyway, that's my initial take on things. Geoff 12:33, 29 March 2009 (UTC)

I certainly like what I see. Zahir 14:43, 29 March 2009 (UTC)
Updated map. Second-level changes italicised. Geoff 10:33, 2 April 2009 (UTC)
I should note that Grand Junction wàs originally part of Tejas, but as of 2004 is part of the Alpes-Argentes purchase. IIRC it is known as Coloradac in French. Perhaps Gran Junta could be the original/Castilian name? Juan Martin Velez Linares 01:16, 27 July 2015
I won't fuss over that. Seems fitting. BoArthur 13:23, 28 July 2015 (PDT)

A couple of notes I would like to make: Oneida/Oneyda is an American name, presumably derived from the Iroquois tribe of the same name. Considering that the Iroquois *there* are closely associated with the NAL, it seems unlikely that the city of Amarillo would be named after them. I personally think the name Amarillo makes more sense, since it's Spanish/Castilian derived and all, but that's just me. Juan Martin Velez Linares 12:38, 1/3/2016 (CST)

Since it's now QSS, the best thing to do would be to justify the discrepancy. Could be a reference to the founders of the city for example. ---Marc pasquin
...I'm going to have to create an Iroquois diaspora in Castilian North America, aren't I? Oh, fine... let's just say mining interests in Aquanishuonigy took interest in the extensive natural resources of Tejas, Alta California, and Montrei, and encouraged immigration to those countries. Sound fair? Juan Martin Velez Linares 9:27, 2/3/2016 (CST)
Doesn't even have to be a large diaspora. Chain emigration means that sometime you will end up with a group of people related by blood or narrow geography that simply uproot and move somewhere else within only a few generations. Oneyda might have been founded by 3 iroquois families look for better pasture for their cattle. They then hired more family members and acquaintances to work on the ranches with some eventually settling nearby. a few stores were established at a crossroads, other unrelated people moved in and eventually you had a municipality with a name related to the original settlers.
An example from *here* of name from other countries is the Quebec regional county municipality of Les Basques which takes its name for the nearby Ile-aux-basques which is called that due to the fact that basque fishermen went there during the 16th and 17th century. And this is the only link with the Basque country. Ethnically, there is no notable basque ancestry amongst founders or the population at larges
There are large Basque settlements in Idaho, *here*, as well as cities around Utah that celebrate "Swiss Days", "Scandinavian Days", "Iceland Days" and so on in summer festivals. I agree, leave it as Oneyda. BoArthur 08:30, 8 March 2016 (PST)
