The timeline documents important dates and events in the Witcher series, with the dates in human calendar are counted from the "Resurrection", a mysterious event mentioned in Season of Storms.

For easier viewing and separation of canon/non-canon this page has been split into 3 sections. Only the main page is considered canon, the others are non-canon (like the games and TV shows).
