Lord Corlys Velaryon Posted November 16, 2016 Share Posted November 16, 2016 @Rhaenys_Targaryen - I'm (extremely slowly) working on a known & speculative timeline of Terros & I have a (perhaps too round, but it makes it easier) date of c.400BC for when Arlan III Durrandon overthrew the Teague dynasty & added the Riverlands to the Kingdom of the Storm: The World of Ice & Fire mentions once that the Durrandons held the Riverlands for "three centuries" & twice that it was more than that. I'm taking that as Harwyn Hoare defeating Arrec & his Stormlanders to add the Riverlands to his own realm as occurring c.96BC. Let's say Harwyn is born in c.120BC & is "sent to sea" (I'm guessing was effectively a soft exile so that he didn't threaten Qhorwyn's peace policy) to the Stepstones at ~14 (c.106BC). He then spends the next 8 years doing all of his international stuff to return to the Iron Islands at ~22 (c.98BC), immediately succeeding his father (because ailing health, greyscale & a Faceless Man killing his old man & elder brothers respectively). Then Harwyn spends 2 years organising, beginning & completing his Riverlands conquest (c.96BC), & then consolidating his rule ~6 months later in defeating Lothar Bracken (c.95BC). Harwyn dies in c.56BC at 64 having ruled the Iron Islands & Riverlands for ~30 years. He's succeeded by his (eldest?) son, Halleck, who spends ~14 years trying his best to be become Westeros' Worst Ever Military Commander, who dies in c.42BC (likely on the battlefield, say his third unsuccessful attempt to take the Bloody Gate). Halleck is succeeded by his eldest son, Harren, who immediately begins construction of his dream home, Harrenhal, which takes 40 years to complete whilst bloodying & beggaring the Riverlands in the process. The Targaryens land at the mouth of the Blackwater around the same time it's completed in 2BC. Obviously this is all (besides Halleck's death-Harren's ascension which is already in the wiki) far too speculative to be included for the wiki, but it makes more sense imo than the c.350BC dating from the RPG guide (from 2005, IIRC, & so far less information to estimate from).
