Xena’s Chronology

Here is a little project in order to understand Xena’s life.

Don’t search for dates, you won’t find them. History was not very respected and if we had to consider the historical characters Xena meets, she would have lived around 200 years.

We will try to tell the important events in a relatively chronological order, from the beginning to the end, using a simple base: 0 for Xena’s birth, 1 for her first year and so on.

Don’t forget that the show places ALL the events « Ten Winters Ago », so some steps will be approximative; we hope we’ll be forgiven.

Each period is followed by the reference to the episods where you can finds the informations.

    This page is incredible! One recomendation: Xena’s Return and the Twilight of Gods and Caligula’s Death should be something about Xena’s return to the Netherlands to battle Grinhilda and her subsequent memory loss that lasts for a year while Gabrielle sleeps in the eternal flame.
