History to 0 BC

Circa 10,000 BC: Ra is born ("The Sun and the Serpent" Part III).

"Several thousand years ago": Loki steals Andvari's Ring from its creator.  Andvari places a curse on the ring so that all who use it have calamities befall them ("Nocturne").

Circa 9000 BC: The Fair Folk, led by Avallach and Danu, war against the dragons.  The Dragon King, Apep, is defeated and imprisoned by the halfling Ra, while the Dragon Queen is slain by Marduk ("The Rising" Part I, "The Sun and the Serpent" Part II, The Guide to the Seelie Court).  Avallach is seemingly killed by a fay-hating human, Balinos the Mad, armed with a spear tipped with meteoric iron.  He is actually badly wounded, and is transported to the castle Carbonek somewhere in the mountains of Wales (Bio).  Oberon is selected by the ruling council of the Fair Folk to succeed his father to the throne.  Madoc and his supporters break away from those fay supporting Oberon, forming the Unseelie Court.   Those who remain with Oberon become known as the Seelie Court.  The First Unseelie War breaks out, lasting 10 years (The Guide to the Unseelie Court).

Between c. 9000 BC and c. 8990 BC: Odin sacrifices his eye to the mysterious Mimir in exchange for the knowledge to defeat the Jotnar in the FUW ("An Eye for an Eye").  In the fourth year of the FUW, King Leitos of Atlantis posts troops in Hyperborea.  In the seventh year of the war, the Atlantean wizards Deucalion and Pyrrha, under orders from King Leitos, begin creating a powerful spell intended to defeat or nullify the Seelie and Unseelie Courts before they destroy Atlantis.   The single large island of Hyperborea is shattered by the "war of the gods" into the modern-day British Isles.  Ultima Thule (modern-day Norway and the rest of the Scandinavian peninsula) is nearly covered in ice.  The original Olympians- distant ancestors of the New Olympians- are accidentally created from Atlantean citizens as a result of side-effects of the magical war ("The Downfall").   Nine years into the First Unseelie War, the events of "The Downfall" occur.  Deucalion and Pyrrha become the first leaders of the Olympians ("Nor Iron Bars a Cage").  As the War ends, the events of "Not a Prison Make" occur (excepting the creation of the Phoenix Gate). After this, the Unseelie Court is defeated and punished (The Guide to the Unseelie Court).

Danu leaves Avalon with three of the Royal Guard of Avalon's knights, and goes to live in Ireland ("The Rising" Part II).  Tethys forms the Elder Court.  Ra takes his war-weary entourage to the land of Kemet.  He founds a kingdom of humans, gargoyles, and Fair Folk, living in harmony ("The Sun and the Serpent" Part II).

Between c. 8990 BC and c. 8972 BC: Balinos the Mad dies, but his spirit is unable to rest, feeling guilt for his murder of Avallach- which led to the First Unseelie War and the destruction of his homeland, Atlantis.   He wanders the world for the next 11,000 or so years ("The Council" Part III).  Pandora travels the world for 18 years, capturing the spirits freed from Pandora's Box (which include Loki).  Among those she imprisons are the Efreet.   The Phoenix Gate is finally forged 10 years after Brooklyn leaves Pandora (This date for the Gate's forging almost (but not totally) contradicts the course of events of "Not a Prison Make".).  13 years into her journey, Pandora makes a visit to a mage, who knows nothing of gargoyles ("Nor Iron Bars a Cage").  18 years after "Not a Prison Make", the events of "Nor Iron Bars a Cage" occur.

Circa 6774 BC: Ra's health begins to ever-so-slowly decline ("The Sun and the Serpent" Part II).

6074 BC: Past-time events of "The Sun and the Serpent" Parts I & II.

6073 BC: Brooklyn writes on a tablet, in hieroglyphs, a message for the Manhattan Clan in the future.  He doesn't think he'll be coming back, but hopes the tablet will be brought to the clan's attention so they know what happened to him ("History's Forgotten").  Harthoth and Meryt organize a celebration of the first anniversary of Brooklyn's arrival ("Return to Paradise" Part I).

6071 BC: Past-time events of "The Sun and the Serpent" Part III & IV.   Soon after Brooklyn resumes his role as the Timedancer, Meryt's clan drifts apart, scattering across Kemet ("The Sun and the Serpent" Part II).

Between 1290 BC and 1224 BC: Meryt's clan reunites under the reign of Ramses II.  However, the clan eventually dies out with the passage of time ("The Sun and the Serpent" Part II).

Circa 1200 BC: The Morrigan (as Eris) is involved in the Trojan War ("Dark Passions").

1184 B.C.: In the final year of the Trojan War, Achilles uses the Godslayer to kill Hector, but is himself slain by one of Paris's arrows shortly afterwards (The Godslayer). Following the sack of Troy, Odysseus, on his way home to Ithaca, comes to Sicily where he encounters the Cyclops Polyphemus (Fata Morgana)

Between 800 BC and 400 BC: The cask of Isis-Hathor is created ("Disobedience").

585 BC: Queen Tea and her court come to Ireland, and give King Eremon of Scotland the Stone of Destiny.  It is taken to Tea's Seat, or Teamhail, later known as Tara ("The Stone of Destiny").

Circa 500 BC: "Art of War".

3rd Century BC: An unnamed sorcerer encounters a "goddess" (probably Titania) who tells him of the Phoenix Gate, which he calls the Phoenus Ianua.  He writes down his experience on a scroll, which passes into the hands of the Mage, along with a second, magically sealed scroll, which contains the secret to controlling the Gate ("Out of Joint" Part II).

23 BC: Past-time parts of "Out of Joint" Parts I & II.

4th Century: Harthoth visits Japan for the first time ("The Sun and the Serpent" Part I).

Early 5th Century: The Morolt comes out of hiding, and enters the employ of an Irish king as his official champion (The Guide to the Unseelie Court).  The city-kingdom of Ys is at its height during the time of King Arthur's grandfather (and Uther's father) King Constantine of Britain.  It was below sea level, and protected by a wall with a single key that could open it.  A clan of gargoyles lived there alongside the human population.  Madoc, in the guise of a mysterious knight, comes to the city and manages to woo the king's daughter, Dahut, to give him the key.  He unlocks the gate, sinking the city of Ys below the waves.   Only King Gradlon and his advisor, St. Guenole, survive.  Dahut is transformed into a sea creature by Tethys of the Elder Court, but the entity known as the Kraken comes to dwell in the city some time later ("The Drowned City").  During the reign of King Constantine, three 'demons' fall from the stars and attack the Picts near Wyvern Hill.  Angering the wyvern that lives there, the creature uses his powers to imprison them in stone in his cave.  There they would remain, until the wyvern's power was broken centuries later ("Dragon's Stone").

Merlin returns the Stone of Destiny after Arthur becomes king, nearly a year after he borrowed it ("The Stone of Destiny").  Sir Marrok, a British knight, is placed under a curse that requires him, at certain times, to remove his clothes and spend a week as a wolf.   His wife discovers this, and takes his garments, preventing him from becoming human again.  When he has been gone long enough, his wife weds the lover she had taken in an extramarital affair ("Dark Passions").  King Arthur slays the Giant of Geen known as Dinabuc, at Mont St. Michel. Merlin puts the other Giants of Geen, including Orgoglio (Dinabuc's brother) to sleep on the Isle of Man ("Giants in the Earth").  Years later, Nimue imprisons Merlin in a Tower of Air spell out of fear from tales told by Madoc ("The Last Enchantment" Part II).  Morgana la Fay makes a couple magical assassination attempts on Arthur, which are all defeated.  These result in the death of Morgana's lover Sir Accolon of Gaul, and the death of her daughter Morfydd, deaths that Morgana adds to her reasons to hate Arthur Pendragon ("The Goddess of Winter" Part III).  Seven years after his wife's treachery, King Arthur finds Sir Marrok, learns the nature of his situation, and helps restore him to humanity ("Dark Passions").

Mid-6th Century: Decades after the fall of Camelot, Merlin becomes the advisor of King Gwenddolau.  Merlin has high hopes for this king ("On Holiday" Part II).

573: Gwenddolau dies at the Battle of Arderydd.  This last failure makes Merlin go insane for a time, as he believes his immortal halfling existence is pointless, and that he is doomed to eternal failure.   He becomes a mad hermit, known as the Madman of the Caledonian Forest, until he finally decides that his halfling nature gives him the unique opportunity to 'nudge mankind in the right direction from time to time when necessary' ("On Holiday" Part II).
