Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Mystery of Talara, v 1 states that in 3E 405 there was a millenial celebration of the kingdom's founding, making 2E 301 the year it was actually founded.
  2. ^ a b Varen's Rebellion is stated in Pirate Queen of the Gold Coast to have begun 2E 576 and continued into the following year, but the end-date of the conflict is not explicitly identified in any existing sources. It is known, however, that after Varen Aquilarios was crowned emperor, he and his Companions spent two years (according to Lyris Titanborn) questing for the Amulet of Kings before returning to the Imperial City and causing the Soulburst in 2E 579. Therefore, the end of Varen's Rebellion occurred in 2E 577.
  3. ^ Some sources[35][55][56] cite the Soulburst as occurring in 578, while others[50] say 579.
  4. ^ The Wolf Queen, v1 suggests Tiber Septim was born in 2E 288, but since that would mean he was nearly 650 years old when he died, it seems more likely that Potema was misremembering her lessons. The Arcturian Heresy states that Tiber was 108 when he died, which places his birth in around 2E 827-828. If Potema simply had the digits in the wrong order, 828 seems more likely.
  5. ^ Biography of Queen Barenziah asserts Barenziah was five years old at the time of the Armistice, which was made some unknown time in the final years of the era.
