This timeline is composed of events that take place in The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Volume I (LGV1), Volume II (LGV2), The Black Dossier (BLKD), the three issues of Volume III: Century (CENT), the side-stories "Nemo: Heart Of Ice" and "Nemo: The Roses Of Berlin" as well as the side stories "Allan and the Sundered Veil" (ATSV), the events hinted at or briefly covered in the expansive work "The New Traveller's Almanac" (TNTA), the three part short story "Minions of the Moon" (MINM), and the short story "A Perfect Match.. And A Perfect Fuse!".

While this timeline concerns itself primarily with events which occur in the canon of LoEG directly, it also mentions several events which, while happening to characters contained in LoEG, are not directly shown in the pages of LoEG, but in the original works the characters were taken from; at some points, however, the fictional canon of LoEG comes into conflict with the worlds of the various fictional works used as components of the LoEG fiction. These places are clearly marked, but as a general rule, unless specifically noted, the events of the sampled fictional canon all are assumed to have happened as depicted in the original work, with the addition of being in a world in which the events of all the other fictional bodies have taken place as well.

Thirdly, this timeline heavily sites events from Gulliver's Travels by Jonathan Swift. Wherever Lemuel Gulliver is herein mentioned, and no note is made to site a specific reference in Moore's works, it is to be implied that this is in reference to the events this book.[1]

For the purposes of this timeline, Orlando's dates are taken above those of Haddo's, as Haddo is potentially a more unreliable narrator, not having been present for the events of which he speaks, as Orlando ostensibly was. Also, Orlando's date is corroborated by Eratosthenes, who gives us 1184 BC, April 24, as the date of the fall of Troy. Haddo may also have meant to say "12th," one above eleven (as in the "11-hundreds"), rather than "10th," one below eleven.

  85. Time Placement: If Caliph Haroun Al Raschid (who began his reign on September 14 of 786) is the Caliph from 1001 Arabian Nights, then Scheherazade would have become his concubine after three thousand nights of women who failed to please him. Putting their first night together in about early December/late November of this year. It cannot be much later than this, because in 796 the Caliph moved the Imperial residence from Baghdad, where Orlando says he met both the Caliph and Scheherazade, to ar-Raqqah.
  86. 86.0 86.1 BLKD p.41, pnl.2. Timeline Note: Orlando later claims to have sulked in Baghdad for "almost a century" until Al-Wathik Be’Ilah became Caliph, which was in 842. Even if he and Sinbad became lovers in 778, this would mean he would have been sulking until 908. Though this fits with the later reference in pnl.4 of this same page where he says "around 900 AD," for purposes of keeping with the genealogy and named historical figures, we are assuming Orlando was exaggerating with how long he mourned and was only being vague about the latter "around 900 AD" reference.

  350. The Andy Griffith Show, season 4, episode 11 "Citizen's Arrest" (16 December 1963), in which Barney has been a deputy for ten years. This contradicts season 1, episode 5 "Irresistible Andy" (31 October 1960), where he says he has been deputy for a year and a half, and season 5, episode 2 "Barney's Physical" (28 September 1964), where he celebrates five years on the force. The earlier date has been preferred, as Barney (unnamed) is mentioned as witnessing Allan and Mina escaping on the Rose of Nowhere with the Galley-Wag and the Dutch Dolls after breaking them out of Maybury jail sometime before September 1956, as described in BLKD p. 157.

  370. In 1969, a television newscast opines that "the Wilson government [is] uncertain whether the popular barefoot Prime Minister will vanish into the hills after winning the election" (CENT:2 p. 28, panel 1). Historically, the Prime Minister from 1964 to 1970 was Harold Wilson of the Labour Party; contemporary issues of Private Eye facetiously equated the politician with his fellow-Yorkshireman the fictional athlete. The Labour Party was widely expected to win the general election in 1970.
  371. MINM:1 p.6
  372. MINM:1 p.3-4
  373. Jack is described as being seven months old in 1965 in NEMO:2 p. 59. However, a birth date of 1962 is suggested in TEMP:1 p. 5, panel 3 and TEMP:2 p. 19, panel 1, where he is said to have been aged seven when he last saw Mina and Orlando in 1969 (CENT:2 p. 5). In NEMO:3, set in 1975, he looks more like a ten-year-old than a thirteen-year-old, so the 1965 date has been preferred.
  374. NEMO:2 pp. 57-60.
  375. TEMP:1 p. 7, panel 5; TEMP:6, back cover.
  376. TEMP:5 back cover; TEMP:6 p. 31.

  404. He is described as "incoming U. S. President Palmer" in 2009 (CENT:3 p. 9, panel 8), though in the timeline of 24 his election was probably about five years earlier. Mention is also made of the "former Bartlet administration": in The West Wing Josiah Bartlet was President from 1999 to 2007, when he was succeeded by Matt Santos.
  405. CENT:3 pp. 3-5.
  406. In TEMP:1 p. 10 panel 1 (January 2010) MI5 has been searching for Emma Night for three months, which would mean that CENT:3 takes place around October 2009, but trees are shown with green leaves throughout that volume, suggesting a date earlier in that year.
