This timeline uses the "Before Graham's Coronation" (BGC) and "After Graham's Coronation" (GC) scale of years for the reader's use. It should be noted, however, that the people who live within the world of Daventry likely have an entirely different measurement of time. Please note, also, that this timeline is not canon for the King's Quest series and is not recognized by any of the fan projects either. It should be used only in connection with Cray's KQ Companion.
Note: For comparison; The TSL timeline/TSL timeline (classic) places KQ7 at about 24 years after KQ1. The BI timeline places KQ7 about 22 years after KQ1. The AGDI timeline places KQ7 about 21-22 years after KQ1, and the IA timeline places KQ7 about 24 or 26 years after KQ1 (KQ7 takes place before KQ4).
