Establishing DatesEdit

Because the dates in the books are so well marked, it's fairly easy to establish fairly accurate dates for events. From Dark of the Moon on, the chapters are all dated, and even in God Stalk, mention of calendar events allows many dates to be established as well.

All dates are in the Tastigon calendar, with years counting time since the Fall. The years are given a few times:

Going farther back, the dates become somewhat less precise. This is because if someone says something happened "five years ago," that means about five years ago, not exactly five years ago to the day. For example, if they said that in the year 3000, subtracting 5 years from the year they said that in will give you a rough idea (3000 - 5 = 2995) but depending on time of year the person said it in, and the time of year the event in question took place, the event could've fallen in the calendar year 2994 or 2996 as well.

Going further back, things become even less clear. If someone says an event was "fifty years ago" that means about fifty years, and they're likely rounding.

If an event is not included, or the math used to find it is flawed or incorrect, please correct it. You're also welcome to add events not currently included. However, please think carefully and make sure your math makes sense before adding it too, and don't add events where there is not reasonable evidence for their date.

PregnancyEdit

Sometimes the length of pregnancy can be used an indicator for a date.

In "Lost Knots" Kinzi calls a Rawneth's pregnancy 9 months,[6] mirroring a human pregnant on Earth. (An average human pregnancy is 280 days.) However, 9 Rathillien months isn't 280 days: A Rathillien month is 40 days long, so 9 months is 360 days. That's one Feast of Fools shy of exactly a year. "Months" doesn't necessarily mean Rathillien months, though. It could also refer to the months of some earlier world, which may have had more Earth-like months. Or those months could be something totally different that both Earth and Rathillien months.

In The Gates of Tagmeth, we hear how Must conceived her baby on Summer's Eve, 3029.[7] That baby is then born on Winter 63.[8] Spring 60 to Winter 63 is 244 days. [1 day of spring (DOC) + all 120 days of summer + all 60 days of Autumn + 63 days of winter = 244 days] Her baby is born early.[9] The question the becomes how early is this. In the case of a human-like 280-day pregnancy, Must gave birth 87% of the way through. In the case of a 9-Rathillien-month 360-day pregnancy, she gave birth 68% of the way through. We know Kencyr are tough, so a 360-day Kencyr pregnancy is still plausible, but it seems unlikely seeing as Kells says, "the child is large and she’s just a slip of a girl, going through this for the first time."[9]

There is also the possibility that Highborn pregnancies and Kendar pregnancies are not identical in length. Rawneth (said to have a 9-month pregnancy) is Highborn, while Must (known to have a 244 day pregnancy) is half-Highborn half-Kendar.

So in conclusion, a Kencyr pregnancy is likely about 280 days, but we aren't sure. But despite these inconclusive answers, a baby being born sometime in the year after their conception seems a reasonable estimate, and that is what we use when estimating dates.

BattlesEdit

Kithorn massacreEdit

Summer 120, 2940s
We know from Index that the massacre occurred on Autumn's Eve.[1]
As for the year, it is consistently referred to as about 80 years ago. This occurs many times, in different books and different years, and almost always phrased as about 80 years.[2][3][4][5][6] The books take place in the mid to late 3020s, so the massacre would've been in the 2940s.

Knorth MassacreEdit

Spring 54, 2993
In Seeker's Mask Brenwyr says it's the anniversary of the Knorth massacre.[7] She says it in "Part I", which isn't dated, but "Part II" is: Spring 54.[8] We know both sections take place on the same night because of the Tishooo storm.
After the massacre, Ganth went directly to the White Hills. In Seeker's Mask, Harn—also on Spring 54—recounts how this was the day day they marched south.[9]
As for the year, in Seeker's Mask (3027) Brenwyr and Harn says it's the 34th anniversary, putting the Massacre in 2993. [3027 - 34 = 2993] This is backed up by "Lost Knots", which Kinzi wrote on the night of the Massacre and which is dated 2993.[10]

Battle of the White HillsEdit

Circa late spring, 2993
Ganth marched his people south directly after the Knorth Massacre, which was on Spring 54, 2993 (see Knorth Massacre). The White Hills are maybe 1 day south of the Riverland, if you really push it. [Spring 54 + 1 day = Spring 55] The fighting lasted 3 days.[11] [Spring 55 + 3 days = Spring 58]

Battle of UrakarnEdit

Circa 3012
Torisen was at Urakarn when he was 15,[12] and he was was born in 2997 (see Torisen's birth). [2997 + 15 = 3012]

Attack on East KensholdEdit

Circa 3022
Narth was hurt in Gerridon's raid of East Kenshold. He lived 2 years before he died of his injuries. After his father's death, the new Lord Harth kicked out the yondri.[13] God Stalk's events take place in 3025 and 3026. Jame meets Marc on the Feast of Fools between those two year, meaning he left East Kenshold in 3025, and by extension, that Narth also died in 3025. Two years before that, when he sustained the injuries, would've been 3022. [3025 - 3 = 3022]

Final attack on North KensholdEdit

Circa 3024
Torisen became Highlord just a dream showed him Ganth's death in the final assault on the keep.[14] Torisen became Highlord in 3024 (see Torisen's ascension).

Births and DeathsEdit

AdirainaEdit

Born circa the 2900s
Adiraina's in her 120s[15] in Bound in Blood (3027). She was born in the 2900s. [3027 - 120s = 2907]

AdricEdit

Born circa 2877
Adric's 149[16] in Dark of the Moon (late 3026). He was born in 2877. [3026 - 149 = 2877]

AerulanEdit

Died Spring 54, 2993
Aerulan died in the Knorth Massacre on Spring 54, 2993 (see Knorth Massacre).

BaneEdit

Born circa 2995 or 2997
We have two mutually contradictory accounts of Bane's birth, both from dubious sources.
In God Stalk, Bane tells Jame how the Exiles passed Tai-tastigon in the night, and then nearly a year later, two came back.[17] The Exiles left the Riverland right after the White Hills in late spring 2993 (see White Hills). Late spring and early summer would've been the best time to cross the Ebonbane, so assuming they weren't stuck in the mountains for years (if they were, it seems unlikely they would've survived and we know they did) they would've come into the Eastern Lands and passed Tai-tastigon later that same year, 2993. And then if Bane's mother and Ishtier came down to the city almost a year later, that would've been in 2994 [2993 + 1 = 2994] and Bane would've been born the following year, in 2995. [2994 + 1 = 2995] Bane tells this story to Jame, and Bane himself was presumably told it by Ishtier, who we know wasn't be honest with him. In the same story he says Ganth died in the mountains, which we know is a lie.
The second account is from Anar. In "Among the Dead" Anar tells how 3 years into their exile, Ganth lead his people in a crazy charge against the Perimal Darkling, and it was then that Ishtier and Ganth's mistress ran away.[18] Their exile began in 2993 (see White Hills) so the raid would've been in 2996. [2993 + 3 = 2996] We know Bane's mother was newly pregnant when she left, so Bane would've been born the following year, in 2997. [2996 + 1 = 2997]
Ishtier is a liar, and Anar is crazy, and so both accounts are rather dubious. However, Anar's account lines up very well with Jame and Torisen's birth (see Jame and Torisen) which lends it credibility. So for now, Anar's story and Bane being born in 2997 seems more likely.
Died Winter 3, 3026
The night Bane was killed was the same night Jame and Marc left Tai-tastigon.[19]

BrierEdit

Born circa 3008
Brier turned 17 2 years before Seeker's Mask (early 3027).[20] She was born in 3008. [3027 - 2 - 17 = 3008]
Brier was 5 or 6[21] when the Southern Host marched on Urakarn in 3012 (see Battle of Urakarn). [3012 - 5 = 3007] [3012 - 6 = 3006] If she was born in 3008, she would've been 4 at the time. (Possibly 5, depending on when in the year her birthday and the battle were. See the note at the top of the page.) This is in keeping with the above dates: 15-year-old Tori was probably not precisely accurate at guessing the ages of children. Also, Brier is tall, and as a child being tall could easily be interpreted as being older.

Danior LordanEdit

Born circa 3023
He was about 4 at the Lordan's Presentation (the winter of 3027)[22] [3027 - 4 = 3023]

DiantheEdit

Born circa 2937
Dianthe is 90[23] in Seeker's Mask (early 3027). She was born in 2937. [3027 - 90 = 2937]

GanthEdit

Born circa 2965
Ganth was barely 18[24] in "Hearts of Woven Shadow" (2983). He was born in 2965. [2983 - 18 = 2965]
Died circa 3024
Ganth died in the final attack on North Kenshold in 3024 (see Final attack on North Kenshold).

GenjarEdit

Died circa 3012
Genjar died shortly after the Battle of Urakarn in 3012 (see Battle of Urakarn).

GerraintEdit

Died Summer 6, 2983
Gerraint died in "Hearts of Woven Shadow" on Summer 6, 2983.[25]

GreshanEdit

Born circa 2960
Greshan is 5 years older than Ganth.[26] Ganth was born 2965 (see Ganth's birth). [2965 - 5 = 2960]
Died circa late Spring, 2983
In "Hearts of Woven Shadow" (Summer 6, 2983)[25] Greshan had been at Gothregor 5 days.[27] [Summer 6 - 5 days = Summer 1] Add add a day or two to retrieve it from Tentir, and he died sometime at the end of Spring.

HallikEdit

Died circa late Spring, 2983
Hallik died the same day Greshan did (see Greshan's death).

HarnEdit

Born circa the early 2960s
Harn is in his late 60s[28] in Dark of the Moon (late 3026). 3026 - 60 = 2966] 2966 expanded to the 2960s. If he's in his late 60s, he was born in the early 2960s.

Jame and TorisenEdit

Born circa 2997
In "Among the Dead" (3004) Anar says Jame and Tori are 7.[29] Anar is crazy and so he's not completely trustworthy, but we do actually know this is true because "Among the Dead" ends with Jame being banished into the Haunted Lands, and she herself says she was 7 when that happened.
If Jame and Tori were 7 in 3004, then they must've been born around 2997. [3004 - 7 = 2997] This is backed up by the story Anar tells: How 3 years into their exile, Ganth lead his people in a crazy charge against the Perimal Darkling, and it was then that Ganth found the Dreamweaver and took her as his mistress.[18] Their exile began in 2993 (See White Hills) so the raid would've been in 2996. [2993 + 3 = 2996] If the twins were convinced that year and born the following year, you again end up with the twins being born in 2997. [2996 + 1 = 2997]

KallystineEdit

Born circa 3002
Kallystine is 25[30] in Seeker's Mask (early 3027). She was born in 3027. [3027 - 25 = 3002]

KenanEdit

Born circa 2984
Kenan was conceived in "Hearts of Woven Shadow" (Summer 6, 2983) and born the following year, in 2984. [2983 + 1 = 2984]

KindrieEdit

Born circa 3005
In "Among the Dead" (3004) Keral says that Kindrie will be conceived that night.[31] If Kindrie was conceived in 3004, then he would be born the following year, in 3005.
Kallystine says Tieri lived 12 years after the Knorth massacre.[32] The massacre was 2993 (see Knorth Massacre) so Tieri died in 2005. [2993 + 12 = 3005] This also lines up with Kindrie being born in 3005 and conceived the previous year in 3004.

KinziEdit

Died Spring 54, 2993
Kinzi died in the Knorth Massacre on Spring 54, 2993 (see Knorth Massacre).

MarcEdit

Born circa 2932
Marc is 94[33] in Dark of the Moon (late 3026) [3026 - 94 = 2932] and 95[34] in To Ride a Rathorn (late 3027) [3027 - 95 = 2932]

Old Lord CaineronEdit

Died circa late spring, 2993
Caldane's father Lord Caineron died in the White Hills (see White Hills).

Old Lord ComanEdit

Died late autumn or early winter, 3026
In Dark of the Moon, on Winter 6, 3026, Torisen says Old Lord Coman recently died, putting his death in early winter or late autumn.[35]

Old Lord JaranEdit

Born circa 2866
He was 160[36] in Dark of the Moon (late 3026). [3026 - 160 = 2866]
Died Winter 17, 3026
He died 2 days into the Haunted Lands, which they entered on the 15th.[37] [Winter 15 + 2 days = Winter 17]

Old Lord RandirEdit

Died circa Winter 50s, 2992
In "Lost Knots" (2993, Spring 54) Kinzi says he's been dead 3 months.[38] A Rathillien month is 40 days. [40 days * 3 = 120 days] Back to the beginning of that year is 54 days, and the Feast of Fools is another day. [120 days - 54 days - 1 day = 65 days] 65 days back into the previous winter is Winter 55. The, because 3 months isn't to-the-day exact, that can be expanded to the 50s of Winter.

PridEdit

Born circa 3013
In Bound in Blood (3027) Jame thinks Prid is about 14.[39] [3027 - 14 = 3013]

RawnethEdit

Born circa 2962
Rawneth is 3 years older than Ganth.[40] Ganth was born 2965 (see Ganth's birth). [2965 - 3 = 2962]

RoaneEdit

Died Autumn 2982
In "Hearts of Woven Shadow" (2983) it was "last autumn."[41] [2983 - 1 = 2982]

RoseEdit

Died circa 3012
Rose died shortly after the Battle of Urakarn in 3012 (see Battle of Urakarn).

ScrampEdit

Died on the Feast of Fools between 3025 and 3026
Scamp died on the Feast of Fools.[42] The Feast of Fools, technically, belongs neither to the new year nor the old year. The Feast of Fools in God Stalk is the one between 3025 and 3026.

TaniscentEdit

Born circa 3001
Tanis is 24 at the beginning of God Stalk (3025).[43][44] [3025 - 24 = 3001] The book spans over a year, and at at the end it's 3026 and she's 25. [3026 - 25 = 3001][45]
Died 3026
Tanis dies at the end of God Stalk (3026).

TelarienEdit

Died circa 2982
Telarien died giving birth to Tieri (see Tieri's birth).

TheocandiEdit

Died 3026
Theocandi dies at the end of God Stalk (3026).

TieriEdit

Born circa 2982
Tieri was 1[46] in "Hearts of Woven Shadow" (2983). She was born in 2982. [2983 - 1 = 2982]
Died circa 3005
Tieri died giving birth to Kindrie (see Kindrie's birth).

TimmonEdit

Born circa 3006 - 3007
Jame thinks Timmon is 20 or 21[47] in To Ride a Rathorn (3027). [3027 - 20 = 3007] [3027 - 21 = 3006]

WinterEdit

Died 3004
Winter died in "Among the Dead" in 3004.

AscensionsEdit

Theocandi to SirdanEdit

Elected 2984
Theocandi is said to have been in power for 40 years.[48][49] [3026 - 40 = 2986] 2986 was not an election year though (see Thieves' Guild elections) meaning "forty years" is slightly rounded number, which is to be expected. The closest election year to that was 2984.

Ganth to HighlordEdit

Summer 6, 2983
Ganth became Highlord when Gerraint died (see Gerraint's death) which as seen "Hearts of Woven Shadow" was Summer 6, 2983.

Torisen to HighlordEdit

Circa 3024
In Dark of the Moon (late 3026), Torisen says he became Highlord 3 years ago, just after he came of age, after a dream showed him Ganth's death.[50][51] [3026 - 3 = 3023]
The span of time without a highlord after Ganth's exile lasted 31 years,[52] and began in 2993 (see White Hills). [2993 + 31 = 3024]
Torisen was born in 2997 (see Torisen's birth) and Highborn come of age at 27.[53] [2997 + 27 = 3024]
In Bound in Blood (3027) Torisen recites the names of the dead for Autumn's Eve the third time since becoming Lord Knorth.[54] [3027 - 3 = 3024]
All this points to Torisen becoming highlord in 3024, and the 3023 date from Dark of the Moon being because that was near the very end of the year.

Tiggeri to established sonEdit

3026, Summer
In Seeker's Mask (Srping 3027) Tiggeri is said to have been established since the previous summer.[55] That would be the summer of 3026.

Other EventsEdit

Thieves' Guild electionsEdit

The election in God Stalk is in 3026. Elections happen ever 7 years. So the election years were 3026, 3019, 3012, 3005, 2998, 2991, 2984, 2977, 2970, and so on.

Lower Town crisisEdit

3019
The Lower Town Crisis took place during the election prior to the one in God Stalk.[56] That would've been the 3019 election. (see Thieves' Guild elections). This is the one that involved Master Tane and a Shadow Thief.

Eye of AbarradenEdit

Circa 2969
In the beginning of God Stalk it's 3025, and the Eye of Abarraden was 56 years ago.[57] [3025 - 56 = 2969]

Rawneth's banishment from GothregorEdit

Summer 120, 2978
This is the event when Kinzi caught Rawneth, Ganth, and Greshan in her quarters. Kinzi forbid Rawenth and Greshan's courtship and banished Rawneth from Gothregor. In "Hearts of Woven Shadow" (2983) Ganth says it was Autumn's Eve, 5 years ago.[58] [2983 - 5 = 2978]

Randiroc's disappearanceEdit

Circa Winter 10s, 2992
In "Lost Knots" (2993, Spring 54) Kinzi says he's been missing 4 months.[38] A Rathillien month is 40 days. [40 days * 4 = 160 days] Back to the beginning of that year is 54 days, and the Feast of Fools is another day. [160 days - 54 days - 1 day = 105 days] 105 days back into the previous winter is Winter 15. The, because 4 months isn't to-the-day exact, that can be expanded to the 10s of Winter.
