"Do you really wish to know?"
Spoilers from the books and/or adaptations to follow!

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 4 sections. Only the main page is considered canon, the others are non-canon (like the games, Netflix show, and other adaptations).

For the sake of convenience, Ciri's year of birth is assumed to be 1252; two other possible dates are 1251 and 1253, see Ciri#Ciri's age for the details.

Between 2700 BR to 1240 BR

Once on land, Jan Bekker was quick to discover and harness the Force found there and humans set up the first settlement. It took several hundred years for the elves to notice the growing threat posed by the newcomers
