Making Sense of Timelines Game of Thrones

Updated: Jul 2, 2023

I've made it my mission to make sense of timelines of different books and movies! Lots of movies, TV series and books don't always make sense. It gives me a headache to try and keep it all straight, so I've taken to putting myself to work - analysing everything in detail and doing my best to not only put everything into sequential order put also to add dates when I could.


As well as making timelines, I've also taken to making family trees! Some of these family trees will have not only Cannon characters, but also non-cannon characters, filling in ancestorial gaps but when I do that I make sure to change the colour who you know who is cannon and who isn't. I don't mind if a name is borrowed for your stories.


This first timeline is for the Game of Thrones series. From the time just before the landing of Aegon the conquest until just before the Blackfire Rebellion. From the Blackfire rebellion (195 After Conquest) a second timeline will be posted since things get just a little more complicated with lots of stuff happening at once and I haven't completed it yet! I've got up to the events of Harrenhel and Roberts Rebellion done, and I've also done the Ironborn rebellion.

So that is the Game of Thrones Timeline, from 28 Years before the Conquest, to 134 years after Aegon lands on Westeros shores. I've not included details of the battles raged by Aegon and the various kings, or the various reforms that were implimented and when or even when Jaehaerys built the King's Road. That will be included in a different timeline. For now, this is just a brief outline of basic facts of the first 8 Targaryen Kings. The next ten targaryen kings and Robert's Rebellion will be posted seperately.
