In The Old Phoenix
These guys have been there:
Theseus (and here)
Holger Danske (and here)
Irene Adler (see image)
a Zenobia who won free of Rome
an Abelard who remained whole (and here)
a Prince Rupert who defeated Cromwell (and here)
a Tecumtha who preserved his nation
These alternative versions of Abelard and Prince Rupert are in Poul Anderson's canon whereas the alternative Zenobia and Tecumtha are not.
And, if you can find the time to research all these characters in the detail that they deserve, then you are a better man than I am.
