In The Old Phoenix

All One Universe, p.111.

These guys have been there:

Theseus (and here)
Holger Danske (and here)
Huck Finn
Irene Adler (see image)
Red Hanrahan
blind Rhysling
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.
