Timeline of fictional events

Various storytellers have tried to create better verisimilitude for their stories by linking them to real history. Protagonists could have witnessed a historical event or even participated in it (often fighting in various wars). In some stories they may even be originators of some event or try to prevent it (see Secret History) but fail – history, as we know it, does not change.

In other stories, writers have simply placed the story in some specific year or date.

Fictional countries may also include history of their own, even if the story itself is not concerned about them.

These dates are connected to either specific historical dates or real-world historical events. They are known to be fictitious – not claimed nonfiction of conspiracy theories.
