Red Queen Wiki

A timeline of events that occured throughout the Red Queen series.


Julian Jacos writes that Montfortian scholars were attempting an ice dig up north. They found traces of a nuclear act dating to approximately 2000 OE. Julian then corroborates the date 2000 OE with 2022 AD based on papers he found in the Horn Mountain vaults in Montfort.

These records have mentions of catastrophic drought dating to 2015 AD and state that one small scale act of nuclear warfare took place in the year 2022, according to the pre-Calamities calendar.
