compiled here by the Loremaster Mäki de Horri
3000 BC Glantri’s last ice age begins.
2200 BC Some southern elves leave the migration of Ilsundal and come to frozen valleys of the area. Part of the group of Enoreth comes also here and settles amongst their relatives. Amongst these settlers is Clan Truedyl (future Gentle Folk), from the other clan comes the Icevale elves and some are forefathers of Schattenalfen.
1950 BC Shadowelves return to surface and settle again in Glantri. They never meet other elves settled there, because many hostile humanoids and human tribes separate them.
1700 BC Elves find a Blackmoorian artefact in Broken Lands and trigger a local catastrophe. Survivors begin their wanderings deep underground when the explosion sends enormous ash and smoke clouds in the air. They are not dispersed in many years.
1690 BC Akkila-Khan builds the fortress of Ul’Ghuzud and begins raids at the borders of modern day Glantri and Ethengar.
800 BC The ice recedes north.
525 BC Some Sheyallia elves escaping from Serpent peninsula and Fireplain settle in the area.
200 BC Orcs rule the area from Streel-river to the west, to Akorros in south. They control also Broken Lands, southern Glantri and most of Ethengar.
150 BC Belcadizian elves arrive to the wooded valleys of Vesubia. They settle north of the river and begin to build a new settlement, which they name Nuevo Alvar.

180 AC Many elves fear that the factional strife will lead to all-out civil unrest. Cries for compromise begin to build. An elven cleric, Don Juan Antonio de Caixas, gains support as a compromise candidate for clan leader. Caixas, however refuses the title of clan leader, saying that clan needs stronger leadership than that limited position can provide. He wants to reinstate the ancient monarchy. Many elders are scandalised, but the idea is popular with many younger elves. Caixas continues to prove his leadership skills as the elders debate.
185 AC Don Juan is named King over all the families of Clan Alhambra. The position is conditional: power is not absolute, he must confer with the elders on all matters before reaching a decision.

The crown is not hereditary, but rather shall pass to the most capable leader upon death or removal of the king.
