The OS timeline ("Original Series") is a timeline of the dates given in the two main timelines of the Original Canon King's Quest series (the series as it existed between the 1980-1999).


There are essentially two official timelines introduced throughout the series, due to placement of events varying between sources. With some other 'minor' discrepancies usually in the placement of Graham's wedding in relation to KQ1, or the birth of the twins in relation to KQ2. This causes the games to take place over a period of twenty or twenty-five years give or take depending on the source. These two timelines or range of dates are discussed in The King's Quest Companion. Both timelines consistently share the idea that Graham was married 1 year after KQ1, but birth of the twins is 'less clear' and forces the twins birth as either 1-2 years after KQ2 or closer to 5 years after KQ2.

Each of the two main variants can be broken down into smaller mini-timelines corresponding to the related source material for each of the games.

The KQ1, KQ2, and KQ3 material, the KQ7 Authorized Guide, and KQ8 material more or less fits together forming the OT timeline ("original trilogy"). The novel timeline more or less fits into this range as well (although arguably some differences in backstories and events might place it into an 'alternative' universe if interpreted in some way). But these sources more or less place the bulk of the series over a period less than twenty-five years (approximately closer to twenty years).

Likewise the KQ5, KQ6, KQ7 material fits together to form the Anniversary timeline. Which sets the series over a twenty-five year period.

The odd man out is the KQ4 timeline which has elements that are maybe closer to Anniversary timeline, and some of it is utilized there. But might not fit with some of the material related to KQ5, KQ6, and KQ7. The main difference is largely in relation to the date of Graham's wedding, and the birth of the twins (it places the wedding as three years after KQ1, and twins birth as two years after KQ1). The issue here is the difference 3 or 4 years between KQ1 and the birth of the twins. The alternate wedding date causes a problem with pretty much all other sources (and is pretty much avoided in most sources). So the 'three year' reference is largely ignored in this wiki (but will be shown on this timeline for comparison).

The idea that the birth is on the 2nd year after the marriage is in itself not a problem (and could roughly fit onto the OT timeline), but the completely different year of the wedding (a date that is never brought up again in any source) keeps it from being reliable to the other variants. However, it might be possible to fit if one assumes there was a 'second wedding' (but that only really works with the extended 25 year timeline).

Some miscellany includes the fact that Eldritch/Etheria from KQ7 is treated as a parallel universe in the original canon, and has a different timescale than that of Daventry (time moves faster there). Modern Earth is also treated as a parallel world, with potentially separate timescale (time moves slower on modern Earth). So dating of events of these parallel worlds and how they related to Daventry are not fully clear. A similar issue occurs with the Old Woods in the novels (time can move fast or slow there depending on the will of the Faeries magic).

Finally, the last concern some bring up, relates to the cosmology of King's Quest and how this relates to the timeline. Some sources state that King's Quest was on earth in our distant past, while the Companion suggests its in a parallel world. However, on a closer reading one sees that the parallel world/dimensional travel as described by Peter Spear somehow relates to time travel as well (see time warp, and On the Origin of Daventry), so they need not be considered 'contradictory', and it can only be assumed that time slowed as the world got older[1]. Which still allows for modern world and past Daventry to still exist on the same world (yet still be related to time/parallel world travel).

For that matter is Eldritch really a parallel world or rather yet another parallel point in time on earth (explaining how it can both be described as "another world" and as an 'earthly plane' in KQ7)?

None of the Original Series timelines on this wiki are considered more or less authoritative than any other version of the timeline. Most of these timelines are based on historical dating rather than astronomical dating, where there is an entire year 1 rather than year 0 (0 is a point in time rather than an entire year) (calculating for historical dating may effectively change certain dates and timings, corrections may still need to be made).

Official TimelinesEdit

The King's Quest Companion states that King's Quest games take place over a period of 20 or 25 years (this was likely intended to mean a range of 20-25 years). There are two main interpretations of the timeline based on this quote one takes the route that KQ3/4 took place around twenty years after KQ1 (as per the intent of the original trilogy manuals, and used in the novels and implied by a few references in the companion). The other suggests that KQ6/7 took place twenty-five years after KQ1 (shifting KQ3/4 to about 23 years after KQ1).

Most sources either divide the twins birth as either occurring about two years after KQ1 or five years after KQ1 in relation to the 20-25 year range or the 25 year end date interpretations. The twins birth at five years after KQ1 is introduced by the KQ4 manual, but is applied in later sources (but not always explicit). It is roughly used by material released for KQ6. But there are later sources that may imply the more conservative original timeline as well.

However there are a couple of other variant timelines based on the date when KQ2 took place. The KQ4 timeline places the marriage at three years after KQ1, KQ2 manual and Companion places the marriage at 1 year after KQ1, a few sources suggests that it was 'several years' (which could be anywhere between 2 or 5 years after KQ1 give or take), The Stories So Far places it either 1 or 2.

These various sources also imply different variant dates for when the twins were born in relation to KQ2. As such Original timeline more or less places the twins birth at year 2. Other sources generally place around year five (the story thus far could imply that it took place 2 or 3 years after KQ1).

Main VariationsEdit

  • Original timeline/Earth timeline (forms a more or less consistent timeline with original KQ trilogy, 20 (to 25) year range from the companions, and the novel timeline)

Assuming Graham was 19 at the time of KQ1 as its stated in sources by Lorelei Shannon, he would be 39 at the time of KQ3/4 in these timelines.

Assuming Graham was 19 at the time of KQ1 as its stated in sources by Lorelei Shannon, he would be 42 at the time of KQ3/4 in these timelines.


Note there are a few inconsistencies between the various sources on the placement of certain events, so there is no single cohesive timeline. There are actually several possible official timelines based on differences between the various sources.

These include variant references to time between the KQ Companion/KQ2 prologue story, KQ4 manual, and various references in official KQ hintbooks, manuals, and the games themselves.

Each timeline is based off of references to periods of time between events, given in the official games, official books, official manuals, and official strategy guides. GC standing for Graham's Coronation. This dating system was chosen to represent the dating due to a couple of sources that based the amount of time that passed off anniversary of when King Graham became king. KQ2, KQ4, and KQ6 manuals/hintguides make reference to such anniversaries.

Each timeline is associated around a particular source, be it novels, companion, or material associated with a particular game.

In each timeline article, contradictory material is discussed briefly.

There are inconsistencies between various sources, for example; The introductory story in KQ2 manual and King's Quest Companion implies that the events of KQ2 took place one year after KQ1 according to the KQ4 manual he saw Valanice in the magic mirror and left on the adventure three years after KQ1, the KQV Hintbook placed the events of KQ2 several years after KQ1 (implying it was more than two or three years). Each of these differences essentially creates three to four separate timelines (based on a major divergence surrounding the alternate marriage and birthdate).

The KQV Hintbook has other discrepancies. According to KQ4 the royal twins were born two years after KQ2 (about 5 years after KQ1). Depending on the interpretation of the text; the King's Quest Companion may suggest that the the twins were born 5 years after KQ1, or four years after KQ2 (5 GC) although this is not fully clear (the book only suggests that the KQ games take place over a range of 20 or 25 years), and there is no specific reference to when they were born in relation to the games; the range may be seen as an approximation of when the series takes place rather than specifically that it took place over twenty-five years period (there is no specific reference to how much time passed between KQ2 and KQ3). The age of twins given in later sources in relation to dates given in those sources (KQ6 Hintbook, King's Quest Companion, KQ7, etc) support the birth of 5 years after KQ1 (although KQ2 is placed at different points in time in different sources). The KQV hintbook states that the birth of the twins was one year after the events of KQ2, several years after KQ1 (which doesn't fit directly with other references, unless KQ2 took place four years after KQ1).

King's Quest Companion states that Alexander was kidnapped by shores of Lake Maylie during a summer picnic. The KQV Hintbook places the kidnapping in the castle nursery. KQV Hintbook also contains a possible discrepancy for when Alexander was kidnapped by Manannan. It states that he was kidnapped exactly six months after his birth. However this creates problems with other known details in relation to other sources; Alexander's was a few days or weeks from his eighteenth birthday, the story took place during late summer, and that See No Weevil places the twins birthdays in early autumn. If Alexander was born during early Autumn, as per See No Weevil and supported by KQ3, and kidnapped during the summer (according to King's Quest Companion), then it would imply that Alexander could have been kidnapped up to nine months after his birth. KQ5 Hintbook's date the six month date (from autumn birthdate) would place his kidnapping in during late winter, early spring. The KQV Hintbook also places the events of KQ1 during the spring (this is supported in both the KQ Companion, and alternate KQ1VGA version of the timeline), but it is unclear what affects, if any, that would have on the timeline.

Fan timelines are inconsistent with the official timeline, and multiple dates are off by several years.

King's Quest TimelineEdit

The timeline below is a list of all dates made in official sources, including inconsistent dates. Note, it will be a bit confusing, as the same event may be listed more than once. To simplify things several of the 'main variants' will be shown with color coding, to help show where things diverge.


  • BGC = Before Graham's Coronation
  • GC = Graham's Coronation
  • Violet = OT timeline (KQ1 timeline, KQ2 timeline, KQ3 timeline, KQ8 timeline, Variant 1 companion timeline, and Novel timeline)
  • Tan = Anniversary timeline (companion timeline variant 2, KQ6 timeline, KQ7 timeline, and Wedding timeline)
  • Gold = Companion timelines shared dates (dates shared by both variants of main timelines)
  • Turquoise = Novel timeline (fits roughly on top of OT timeline, but a few minor differences)
  • Red = KQ4 timeline (about the same as Anniversary timeline except for an alternate date for KQ2.)
  • Green = KQ5 Timeline (less specific mainly changes the date of twins birth in relation to KQ2; but mostly fits onto the Anniversary timeline)
  • Blue = KQ6 timeline (some material based on the KQC and fits on the Anniversary timeline, but there are a few minor discrepancies)
  • Olive = KQ7 timeline (mostly concerned with history of Etheria, but also mainly relates to the Anniversary timeline)

Peter Spear, Roberta Williams, and others receive dreams and messages from the world of Daventry. The King's Quest series of computer and video games are based on these messages and dreams. In time the great dreamer, Roberta Williams begins to affect the reality of Daventry causing changes in the world.
In late 1984, Peter Spear was working as a writer and producer for a television station in San Francisco. He first had a chance to talk to John Williams (head of marketing at Sierra) about a new game about to be published. He traveled to Ethiopia, and when he returned the game, "King's Quest" (plain vanilla King's Quest, not King's Quest 1, not Quest for the Crown was waiting for him).[34]
In late 1988, Peter Spear airs a segment on Roberta Williams
In January,Peter Spear met Roberta Williams in Las Vegas and interviewed her a few months later. Roberta talked about the land of her creation. She secretly hinted to Peter Spear that Daventry was a reality, a universe, that really existed. Short time later, Peter Spear began receiving electronic mail from Daventry.[35]
Sierra releases a new and graphically improved King's Quest I. It contained "creative license" that changed elements of the game world, that did not reflect the "real world of Daventry". It was a second "game reality".[36]
The chronicles of Daventry are retold, these centuries later, as the tales of King's Quest."[2]
KQ8 is released.


GC and BGC are unofficial designations for the dates starting with KQ1, and references to events before KQ1.

BPB stands for Before Princeless Bride, and designates different calender used in Eldritch do to time flowing at a different rate than in the world of Daventry.

It should also be noted that these are mainly approximate dates, since there is no way to know specific years or the months that events took place in. There are only references to how much time passes between each event, and a few references to which season the event took place during.

Tombstones in KQ4 give specific years and dates as well. However, according to the King's Quest Companion these are said to be graves from the Other World (Earth), and therefore do not correspond to dates within the world of Daventry itself (at least from King's Quest Companion perspective). From the alternative perspective that KQ is set in Earth's past these may very well represent internal dates within the KQ universe.

Several references including alluded to in KQ3, the manual for KQ4 (and possibly the Companion, and the The World of King's Quest: A Brief History of Daventry suggest that the terrible three-headed dragon and other disasters struck Daventry within same year that Alexander was kidnapped and magic mirror went dark (which went dark on the night of his kidnapping). This suggests that 16-18 maidens were sacrificed. The King's Quest novels instead seem to suggest, that the Dragon attacks and disasters started over 15 years after the kidnapping.

This is a list of the inconsistent references to time between the sources. It also includes a few additional references to time mentioned in different articles, interviews, etc.

Note that the The Silver Lining, KQ2, and other fan Timelines (unofficial) are inconsistent with the dates given in the official sources.

Incidentally, when Peter Spear stated that the King's Quest games take place between 20 or 25 years he was right. In all variant timelines KQ3 onwards, take place as early as 20 years after KQ1 and as much as 25 years after KQ in most variations of the timeline. The KQ5 Timeline (with material from KQ5 Hintbook included) fits on top of the Novel timeline almost perfectly (putting KQ7 about 21 years after KQ1), where as some of the other timelines seem to fit on top of the KQ4 timeline more directly (with varying degrees of success) (with dates ranging as much as 24-25 years after KQ1).

Alternative dates/DiscrepanciesEdit

  • According to the King's Quest Companion, the king's quest games take place over the course of 20 or 25 years.[37]
  • The date of the first withdrawal is unclear. According to information in the Companion it apparently took place after the Ancient Ones had already become legend. According to the guidebook the last date the Ancient Ones had lived in Green Isles was about 1000 years before KQ6. This would mean the first withdrawal would have had to have taken place between 1000 BGC and 0 BGC. This has other issues with other information that suggests that Daventry was founded several millenia before KQ1 (which would suggest that withdrawal occured more than 1000 years before KQ1).
  • Depending on the source Daventry was founded less than 1000 BGC (after the Ancients became legend) or over 2,000 years before KQ1.
  • The introductory story in KQ2 manual originally implied that events of KQ2 took place one year after KQ1 (from the moment he saw Edward in the mirror). The novelization for KQ2 in the King's Quest Companion also states that KQ2 takes place one year after KQ1, mentioning that the Sorcerer had turned him to stone the year before.[38]. The KQ4 manual, places of events of KQ2; three years after KQ1. The KQV Hintbook placed the events of KQ2 several years after KQ1 (implying it was more than two or three years).
  • According to the KQV hintbook and an article in InterAction Magazine (Fall 1992) states that the twins were born 1 year after events of KQ2. According to KQ4 manual, the royal twins were born two years after KQ2. In the King's Quest Companion the twins were born about four years after KQ2.
  • King's Quest: The Floating Castle, King's Quest V Hintbook, and an article in InterAction Magazine (Fall 1992) states that Alexander was 18 years old when he returned from Llewdor (or that 18 years had passed since Alexander was kidnapped). However, according to KQ3 (and several other sources) he and his sister were 17 when he returned from Llewdor.
  • According to information in KQ3, the game took place during the summer. However, a reference in King's Quest Companion which states that Pan plays a "Maytime dance" could imply that KQ4 takes place during spring. However, KQ4 begins directly at the end of KQ3. The companion confirms that KQ4 takes place in the summer, mentioning that the scents of summer hang delightfully heavy.[39]
  • The manual for KQ3 states that Manannan kidnaps his slaves when they are exactly one year old (given the example of his first victim, and that he followed this practice each time). The KQV hintbook and the article in InterAction Magazine (Fall 1992) states that Alexander was kidnapped exactly six months after his birth.The KQC suggests he was kidnapped one year after his birth (Alexander was held captive for seventeen long years). The six month dates creates problems with other known details in relation to other sources; Alexander's was a few weeks from his eighteenth birthday, the story took place during late summer, and that See No Weevil places the twins birthdays in early autumn (as supported by KQ3, and KQC). If Alexander was born during early Autumn, as per See No Weevil and supported by KQ3/KQC, and kidnapped from the shores of Lake Maylie during the summer (according to King's Quest Companion), then it would mean that Alexander would have had to have been kidnapped over ten months after his birthdate . The King's Quest Hintbook's six month reference (from autumn birthdate) would place his kidnapping during late winter, early spring. The companion also states that Alexander was held 17 long years, suggesting he was kidnapped almost a year after his birth (or the following summer after his birth).
  • KQ5 takes place almost a year after KQ4 (23 GC) according to the KQV & KQ8 manuals, during following spring (24 GC). References within KQ6 states that Cassima was "locked in a room nearly six months"[40] which implies it was six months after her rescue in KQ5. This would place KQ6 at about 24 years after KQ1. However the official King's Quest VI Hintbook by Lorelei Shannon places KQ6 at 25 GC, the same year as KQ7 ("...20th birthday...") which would be almost a year after KQ5. KQ6/7 taking place 25 years after KQ1 is supported in the King's Quest Companion). King's Quest Companion states that KQ6 takes place almost a year after KQV[41], and that Cassima was to be in seclusion for a year.[42]
  • The exact timeframe for King's Quest: The Floating Castle is unclear. There are few locations that it could fit in relationship to details given within the book. The last major event mentioned early in the book is Alexander's escape from Manannan (and it is implied that he is at least eighteen). It also mentions that Alexander met the wizard Morowyn nine months before events of the book, he also appears to show no signs of depression (implying he has not yet met Cassima), the epilogue takes place in the following summer. This would mean that details given would place most of the book between KQ4 and KQ5. The epilogue would most likely have to take place after KQV.
  • The date that the magic mirror was obtained is implied to be over 500 years in KQ1 manual, and over 200 years in King's Quest: The Floating Castle.
  • At the end of the KQ1 remake its mentioned that an unspecific number of years of prosperity occurs following events of KQ1.[43]
  • In an article by Peter Spear in Interaction Winter 1992, King's Quest - A Landmark Game, he claimed that the game "Picks up about three months after King's Quest V ended". It is actually said to about six months in the game. The article was original published in Questbusters magazine, and was published before the release of KQ6. It discusses several other prototype ideas.
  • The narrator in KQ4 calls Graham, "old King Graham", Rosella states that Graham is "still young".[44] (she was saying that he still many more years of his life to live). This is not really a contradiction. Several other sources claim that he was "old", as well.
  • According to an interview from Roberta Williams she stated; "Between III and VI, there’s only a period of about two years."
  • It is said in several sources that Alexander was several weeks from his eighteenth birthday when KQ3 began. Exact amount is not clear.

Misc. NotesEdit

  • According to the narrator or Rosella, the mummy is about a 1000 years old. This is merely an approximation and not necessarily accurate.
  • Derek Karlavaegen wrote in Guidebook to the Land of the Green Isles that the old castle had been around for over 300 years, before a newer one built around 100 years before replaced it.
  • In the King's Quest Companion Derek Karlavaegen says that it was nearly a year since the time he arrived on the shores of Isle of the Crown that he made it to Serenia. It is unclear which season he made it to the island (c. 7 GC).
  • Seven is the age of Rosella during Kingdom of Sorrow, which takes place in Spring of the following year (she had her birthday in autumn).
  • KQ6 and KQ7 official hint books says that Graham had just turned 19 at time of KQ1. Several references in KQ1 SCI imply that it is spring, but almost summer, "...spring flowers...", "...the hot summer months", "...before next winter..." The KQC, also mentions spring flowers (this is supported by a reference in the KQV Hint Book, although other dates given in the book are inconsistent).
  • The official novel, The Floating Castle, mentioned that Daventry's King's and Queens had been using the the Magic Mirror for more than "two centuries" until the day the Sorcerer took it from Edward. It should be noted that the date the Magic Mirror was stolen is not specific in the manuals or any other official source. We only know that it been stolen several years before King Graham was tasked with the quest of finding all treasures, and many years after the other 2 treasures had been stolen. King's Quest Companion implies that it had been stolen 20 years before. So the exact date would be around 220 years before Graham's Coronation, but could be as high as around C. 420 BGC.
  • How the 10,000 date relates to Daventry time is somewhat unclear, as time in Old Wood moves differently than outside the woods (or least has since the fairies moved in).
  • Reference to seventeen are made in KQ3 (Gwydion is nearing his eighteenth birthday). According to See No Weevil, Alexander and Rosella were born early autumn. Both Llewdor and Daventry are in the northern hemisphere above the 'tropics' (I.E. Kolyma) and share approximately the same seasons. They would turn 18 during 23 GC after Alexander freed himself from Manannan, and Rosella travelled to Tamir.
  • The day before KQ3, Alexander was busy 'cleaning' the floor in Manannan's room, and emptied the trash in the wizard's study[45]
  • Genesta lost her Talisman, the day before she brought Rosella to Tamir.
  • According to a hidden message in KQ8: "Leslie Steiner has verified this product is year-1000 compliant with all medieval standards."
  • The Deadman's Coins are a few hundred years old (at least). This would suggest they are probably at least two hundred years old, but implies less than a thousand.[6] If so this would suggest that the coins were minted and placed by the Winged Ones, and not by the Ancient Ones.
  • An unused file in KQ7, Graham mentions he has been waiting fifteen minutes for Valanice and Rosella return for lunch. This does not meantthat they were in Etheria for only 15 minutes, it does suggest however that they were in Etheria the same day and time passed between morning and lunch to 15 minutes past lunch. The King's Quest Companion states that they were there much longer than the time that passed in Daventry (but does not explain how much time exactly) but could have been anything from a few days in Eldrich, while less than half a day passed in Daventry. The unused idea for the ending of KQ7 appears to have been the source for the time dilation idea in the Companion, and its stated the ideas were adapted from interviews with Lorelei Shannon and Roberta Williams. Another unused line in the game (although it might appear if the game is played without voice sound) states: "Valanice waited for what could have been moments, or hours, or days..." which is another reference to the nebulous amount of time passing in both realms. Note: This concept of time running separately in different realms is a reference to the phenomenal in Chronicles of Narnia, that occurs whenever people from Earth travel to Narnia (of course usually when people pass back to their own realm, their tend to reset back to the age they were when they left their own world). Other than that time in KQ7 doesn't seem to be all that important to the story, there is reference to there being only a few hours between the point when Rosella met Dr. Cadaver, and when Valanice meets him. But possibly up to a day or a few days passing based on other comments up to the time when Valanice meets Oberon and Titania, and stopping the volcano. There is also some urgency as Rosella will be forced to Marry the false Troll King in a few days or the volcano will erupt before then.
  • According to Mark Seibert, KQ8 takes place after KQ7, but there is no specific indication on how long after. Except that the intent was Graham was now 'old'. He suggests it was no more than a few years after KQ6 however.[46] While Rosella is not directly mentioned by name in KQ8, the Unicorn/Beast does state that the entire royal family was turned to stone during the ordeal. Several other characters (such as the Nymphs and Wizard) also mention that the curse affected the entire world.

King's Quest Timeline VariationsEdit

No source ever gives specific calendar dates for when the stories took place, though the manuals mentioned how much time passed between each game. Even the official universe has two different theories on the existence of Daventry placing it in two different points in time or space. The manuals and KQ6 intro movie states that the games occured a long time ago in earth's past, for example, but the companion states that people withdrew from earth a long time ago to Daventry, and now Derek Karlavaegen is sending history of his world to earth.

With the release of King's Quest I (remake), an additional alternate version of the King's Quest 1 storyline was made, which included more dialogue. It also altered a few details in the game; including changes geography, item locations, and puzzle solutions. The collection of the three treasures of Daventry was more linear ending with the Magic Shield. One altered detail in the storyline for example was that serpent-like moat monsters had replaced the alligators that existed in earlier versions of the game. Though these changes were relatively minor, and the two games storylines remained relatively the same.

Additionally there was an official version of King's Quest 1 made for SMS, and an official version of KQ5 made for the NES, both had a few minor alterations from their respective games. The SMS King's Quest had new art for the people and places of Daventry, and interface similar to early LucasArts adventure games, a few of the puzzles were altered in order to work with the interface, though the text of the story remained largely the same as the AGI original version of the game. KQ5 for the NES, had an interface similar PC disk version but the art design for the various locations was much different, and some places like the desert were reduced in size. Some of the dialogue was modified, location names changed, some of the cut scenes removed or shortened (for example Amanda and Austin never show up), and certain puzzles modified or changed. For example Dink will come from anywhere in the maze from the sound of the tambourine rather than than Graham having to find him in one of four rooms, and the maze is different than in the PC version. Additionally the sea monster at the edge of the sea is a tentacle rather than a Loch Ness type monster. However both adaptations stayed true to the original storylines.

The official King's Quest Companion chose to follow the original version of King's Quest I's story (rather than rewrite the novelization to incorporate the new material) as it was the most common version of the game released at least up to the 3rd edition of the book, and it would go against the conceit behind the story that they were actual documents coming from Daventry. The reference to this reasoning for not changing the story was removed from the introduction in the 4th edition likely due to the remake being more common than the original version by then. However the story was left unaltered for the same reason as the previous editions. King's Quest Companion referenced the alligators in the moat, whereas the novel, King's Quest: The Floating Castle, referenced directly from the remake (mentions serpents in the moat). Another difference is the order that the three treasures are discovered. In the original it could be any order, in the companion it is Mirror, Shield, Chest, and in the remake it is Mirror, Chest, Shield. However that difference is fairly minor.

The King's Quest Companion somewhat branched from the game's timelines in the 4th edition by implying that KQ7 was a fictional story within the King's Quest universe that contained more lies than truth. Though Derek admitted he didn't know for sure, and that the royal family may have chosen to keep the true events secret from him, or that some kind of great dreamer in his world was altering the face and history of his world.

In this timeline it is implied according to the King's Quest Companion that Rosella and Edgar would ultimately become the Heirs of Daventry implying a happy ending to the series as a whole.

Behind the scenesEdit

Fan game developers have created their own timelines for their games as well, see Timelines (unofficial)


These sources contain information related to the official timelines.

Behind the scenesEdit

This timeline includes most sources having to do with King's Quest.

The one exception is with the King's Quest reboot series which has its own separate 'canon'. It does not relate to any of these timelines, and introduces yet another timeline that cannot fit on top of any of the two main variants (nor the KQ4 variant as well). It also changes many of the backstories and details of various characters and events, and is thus clearly in an alternate universe). Graham, Edward and his Queen's backstories are modified (tossing out most of the KQ1 manual's backstory). Graham ages at a different rate, Graham is a different age during the events of KQ1 (21 vs 19), changes to his heritage, and extended family members history, and was a knight for Edward for much less of time, it places the events of KQ2 and marriage of Graham as a decade after KQ1 (rather than 1 year), which then moves all later dates a decade later than they appear in either of the two main original timeline variants. Besides Graham, the backstories for Valanice (there are now two of them), Icebella (who is the 'other Valanice' not married to Graham), Mordack, Manannan & Hagatha are completely reimagined, and tosses out the manual backstories for them (and any the original series in-game backstories). Some of these changes like a butterfly effect will be bound to change certain details about Alexander's backstory as well, and potentially the events surrounding KQ5. Eldritch is part of the world, etc (which will likely effect history of it as it relates to Rosella/Valanice during the events of KQ7, but by how much is currently unknown), so far appears to position them as having been born 20-25 years after KQ1 rather than 1-5 years after KQ1. The reboot series is entirely ignored in this article.

However, Original universe timelines, and the Reboot universes may fit into the Companion's idea of parallel dimensions that can 'co-exist' as alternative worlds but do not directly (physically) interact with each other.

For more information about the reboot series canon's timeline see KQGS timeline. This information does not appear in this timeline below.

It also mostly ignores some of what appears to be the 'implied intent' from the King's Quest novel trilogy, see BB universe which might also affects certain character backgrounds including King Graham's & Alexander's. Which do not align with either the majority of the twenty year or the twenty-five year variations. The Official Book of King's Quest may have details that may or may not fit with the majority of sources (in relation to where Graham was living at the time of KQ1, and Gwydion's backstory in KQ3, but these are generally minor)

The difficulties with the KQ4 material is already discussed above.

KQ1SCI has some minor differences in the 'order of events'. These are largely ignored, but the game itself is more or less treated as being in the same universe as the original series (due to elements of it being included in materials like the The Official Book of King's Quest VI and the novel trilogy). The Sorcerer from KQ1 and Enchanter from KQ2 are considered to be the same character due to a later developmental retcon to the series (the 1986 update of KQ1 changing the character sprite) that was then explained away in the King's Quest Companion. Whereas they were separate characters in the older 1983/84 version of KQ1. But this doesn't really have much influence on the timeline per se, but differences in King's Quest game universes (see game realites and cyberspace as the Companions and KQ7 Authorized guide explains it).

For more information about the difference in these minor alternate remake/reboots, or stories, see canon.
