NOTE: This section may contain spoilers for the Draconica series.
Below is an overview of the all the major events that have taken place on Draconica since it's creation, along with dates (some exact - others approximate).
In Draconican history, it is generally believed that life on Draconica has existed for little over 5000 years. This timeline seeks to cover everything from the birth of the planet to modern day, covering some events of the novels. Some events here may run in conjunction with others.
c. stands for ''circa -'' which is an approximation of the date. OE stands for Old Era, which runs in reverse date order - and NE stands for New Era, which runs in chronological order.
The Birth of the Dragons
No evidence exists to show how long the dragons came to exist (or existed before) the creation of Draconcia - nor is there anything to explain how and when the other dragons were created. It is generally assumed that Jeova created the dragons himself - although this is a source of debate across many scholars of Draconica. As there is no solid evidence, there is no way to predict when the dragons first came to exist.
The Old Era of Draconica
c. 5000 OE *Jeova and his dragons find a barren wasteland of a world and decide to give it life. They travel across Time and Space and mold the world based on the worlds they visited. They also bring back some species of the worlds they visit, leading to the creation of many unique races. *Nar-Gar, in various bursts of anger, tears apart the land of Draconica, splitting it from one big island to several islands. These would eventually go on to become the countries of Draconica. During one of his rages, Nar-Gar sinks the land of Hydrasan, killing many residents. Nar-Gar is put down because of this. *Frostella - in a fit of anger, breathes her icy breath across one island and puts it in a state of permanent frost. This place becomes Naedor. *Kerrigal discovers a hidden source of power at the core of the planet - which he learns can be harnessed and used to help in everyday life. He names this magic and teaches this to the people of Draconica, so that they can incorporate into their daily living. This begins The Age Of Sorcery. *Misuse of magic leads to the creation of ghuls, which cause destruction over Draconica. The Valkyr are formed from a group of warriors, who travel to the centre of the planet and create a magic ink that grants them superhuman abilities. They become Draconica's best warriors for dealing with supernatural threats. *In an event known as The Black Hurricane, Abadon goes berserk and attacks the people of Draconica, destroying a vast number of the population. All the dragons join forces to stop Abadon. Jeova creates a prison for her to restrain her, but to keep it maintained, he must also put himself in a state of everlasting sleep. He takes those who have died to his new home, leading to the creation of the Afterworld and the Necroworld. The reasons as to why Abadon attacked in the first place are a subject of debate on Draconica. The followers of Jeova teach that Abadon was jealous of Jeova’s love for the mortals, however this is contested by some.
c. 4500 OE *Overuse of magic has caused much damage to the land. Dronor devises a way of teaching them how to use the natural resources of the planet - lessening their reliance on dangerous powers. The Age of Sorcery ends and The Age Of Science begins. *This teaching causes a rivalry between Dronor and Kerrigal - which esculates into full scale war. To try and defeat Dronor, Kerrigal creates a giant maelstrom in the ocean to capture Dronor. The plan backfires and he is sucked in instead, presumably destroyed. The Vortex is created. *As the mortals learn to use materials to build cities and towns - so do they learn to build weapons and machines of war. Knowing how worried the dragons are that war could rage out of control, Baala takes it upon himself to become a war embassador for Draconica. No country can go to war without his say so. *The six most intelligent minds of Draconica get together, keen to exploit the new knowledge that science has given them. At the advice of Dahli, they find a large - unpopulated island with an almost infinite number of resources. They each take their own part of the island, making themselves the ruler of their respective lands. The Republic of Garmany is born and later, alchemy is created as an alternative to magic.
3968 OE *Kaiser Grimla Dethshead of Drewghaven, worried about the rise in population of shadoris - and fearing that they may usurp control from the humans due to them being vastly superior physically - perpetrates a massive shadori "cull", resulting in the deaths of several thousand shadoris. Those that survive escape to a deserted island, which they name Shadoria, where they stay in isolation from the rest of the world for many years.
c. 3700 OE *King Geordia Strongheart, in an effort to build a "city that will never fall", gathers a vast amount of eternium to build a wall across the city. *King Geordia dies during construction. Wall is finished and the city is named St Geordia in his honour.
1616 OE *Dracan Bathorula uses Dark magic to protect him from a deadly disease. The result makes him immortal and drives him insane. He overthrows the government of [[Romano]] and becomes the new Viscount. His rule leaves a bloody trail of death and plunges the country into darkness.

279 OE *After seven years or fighting, Isiah appeals for calm - but she is killed in a fight between Baala and Leoni. The two brothers begin a 4 month long fight that eventually results in the death of the two brothers. *The result of their fights caused much devastation and caused black clouds to blot out the sun forever - creating the Dark Lands. *The bones of Leoni and Baala can still be found in the place known as The Last Stand. *The followers of Baala and Leoni become the Baalarian Empire and the Leonidan Kingdom respectably and carry on the conflict started by their masters.
