The first Wheel of Time prequel

Danu 1st • Evening: With the Battle of the Shining Walls completed, Lan finds his surviving forces reduced to half-strength. [NSTN-H-334]

Danu 2nd • Before Dawn: As the Aiel march east, Lord Emares contacts Lan and arranges for his forces to help set a trap at a ridgeline known as the Hook. [NSTN-H-17]

Danu 2nd • Dawn: The force of over two-thousand Aiel heading towards Lan abruptly halts. Aware of Lan's presence, the Aiel alter course to move around the ridgeline and avoid combat. [NSTN-H-24]

Danu 2nd • Dawn: As most of the Aes Sedai attend to the survivors of the attack against Tar Valon, Gitara Moroso, the Keeper of the Chronicles to Amyrlin Tamra Ospenya, Foretells the birth of the Dragon Reborn on the slopes of Dragonmount. She dies immediately afterwards in the arms of Moiraine Damodred, one of two Accepted present during the Foretelling. Moiraine and Siuan Sanche are sworn to secrecy by the Amyrlin. [TGH-TP-109 / NSTN-H-36]

Danu 2nd • Dawn: Shaiel gives birth to a son on the slopes of Dragonmount during the Battle of the Shining Walls. The infant, Shaiel having died after giving birth, is found by Tam al'Thor, blademaster and Second Captain of the Illian Companions, who later returns with the child to Emond's Field. Tam and Kari name the infant Rand and raise him as their own son. [TEOTW-H-73 / TGH-TP-105-108 / LOC-H-710]

Danu 2nd • Morning: The Amyrlin Seat announces that Tar Valon is to dispense a bounty of one-hundred gold crowns to all women who have given birth since the first soldiers arrived to defend Tar Valon. The bounty covers those within Tar Valon, as well as those accompanying the forces of the Grand Alliance encamped around the city. All Accepted in the White Tower are tasked with collecting and recording this information. [NSTN-H-58]

Danu 2nd: Birth date of Bili, son of Willa Mandair. [NSTN-H-108]

Danu 2nd: Moiraine and Siuan, accompanied by four Tower Guards, leave Tar Valon and pass through the village of Alindaer. [NSTN-H-71]

Danu 2nd • Late Afternoon: After collecting names at a Murandian camp six miles from the city, Moiraine and Siuan return to Tar Valon. [NSTN-H-91]

Danu 2nd: Moiraine learns of the deaths of three uncles, King Laman and his brothers Moressin and Aldecain. She is excused from further work collecting names. [NSTN-H-94]

Danu 3rd: Birth date of Rahien, son of Lady Ines of Kandor, in a farmhouse two miles from Dragonmount. [NSTN-H-316]

Danu 4th: On their second day of recopying information, Moiraine and Siuan begin to secretly make their own copies of the records, limiting themselves to male infants born after Gitara's Foretelling and near Dragonmount. [NSTN-H-109]

Danu 4th: Moiraine becomes aware of the White Tower's intention to place her on the Sun Throne of Cairhien. [NSTN-H-110]

Danu 5th - 6th: Moiraine correctly deduces that the Amyrlin is quietly gathering a small number of experienced Aes Sedai to search for the Dragon Reborn. The five chosen are Kerene Nagashi, Aisha Raveneos, Valera Gorovni, Ludice Daneen and Meilyn Arganya. [TGH-TP-53-110 / LOC-H-710 / NSTN-H-118]

Danu (before thaw): Aeldra Najaf is raised to Keeper of the Chronicles. [NSTN-H-119]

Danu • Evening (before thaw): In preparation for Moiraine and Siuan taking the test to become Aes Sedai, Elaida helps them to practice concentrating while weaving flows of the Power. Her methods result in various injuries to the two Accepted, which she Heals the next morning. [NSTN-H-126]

Danu (before thaw): The morning after Elaida's third session with Moiraine and Siuan, Merean informs them that Elaida had possibly helped them to cheat on their test, and that she had been chastised for such help. [NSTN-H-130]

Danu 12th: An unexpected thaw melts all of the snow on Dragonmount. [NSTN-H-131-316]

NOTE: Although Jordan's wording on page 131 is a bit awkward, this date can be established by a reference on page 316 to a range of ten days that starts on the day of Gitara's Foretelling up to the day before the thaw.

(Within weeks of Rand's birth): Birth date of Perrin Aybara, son of Con and Joslyn Aybara, at his family's farm near the Waterwood outside of Emond's Field. [TEOTW-H-94 / TSR-H-328]

(Within weeks of Rand's birth): Birth date of Matrim Cauthon, son of Abell and Natti Cauthon, in Emond's Field. [TEOTW-H-94]

Danu 14th: A man named Ries Gorthanes, posing as a Tower Guard, arrives at a Tar Valon bank and passes a forged letter from the Amyrlin Seat requesting the financial records of Moiraine Damodred. Although Gorthanes is apprehended, he escapes before the Tower Guards arrive. [NSTN-H-180]

Danu 21st • Before Dawn: Moiraine is told that she is to be tested for the shawl. [NSTN-H-132]

NOTE: Since sunrise marks the start of a new day, Moiraine would have been told of her upcoming test late on Danu 21st, but the test would have taken place early on Danu 22nd.

Danu 22nd • Morning: Entering a ter'angreal located in a basement of the White Tower, Moiraine is required to complete one-hundred weaves under a variety of mentally and physically challenging circumstances. [NSTN-H-140]

Danu 22nd: Siuan is told that she is to be tested for the shawl, and undergoes a similar test as Moiraine's. [NSTN-H-150]

Danu 22nd (six days before the Feast of Lights): The Aiel enter Kinslayer's Dagger and the pursuing Grand Alliance forces halt their attacks. [TWORJTWOT-124]

Danu 22nd • Evening: Although instructed to spend their last evening as Accepted in prayer and contemplation, Moiraine and Siuan instead plot to place mice in Elaida's bed. The two are discovered and are disciplined by Merean. [NSTN-H-152-230]

Danu 22nd • Just Before Dawn: Moiraine Damodred and Siuan Sanche are raised to the shawl of an Aes Sedai. Afer swearing the Three Oaths on the Oath Road, they both choose the Blue Ajah. [TGH-TP-109 / LOC-H-710 / NSTN-H-155]

NOTE: It can be assumed that the oath swearing ceremony and Ajah selection are timed to occur at the very end of an Accepted's last day (as in the chapter title, Just Before Dawn), so that they start the following day as an Aes Sedai.

Danu 23rd: Siuan is assigned to work for Cetalia Delarme, head of the Blue Ajah's eyes-and-ears network. [NSTN-H-171]

Danu 23rd: The Amyrlin gives Moiraine the task of distributing the bounty to those woman who bore children during the specified period. [NSTN-H-172]

Danu 23rd • Late Afternoon: Forces led by Lan stop near Kinslayer's Dagger, having pursued the retreating Aiel for more than two weeks. At Bukama's urging, Lan agrees not to return to the Borderlands immediately, and the two head southward together. [NSTN-H-174]

NOTE: The date that the Aiel retreat into Kinslayer's Dagger is firmly fixed on Danu 22nd, yet the passage where Lan's forces approach the mountain range appears to take place on Danu 23rd. It's not clear if the Aiel have entered the mountain range that day, or the day before, although the text does hint that these events take place on the same day that the Aiel enter the mountains. Due to the ambiguity in some of the earlier text relating to Moiraine and Siuan, it is possible that the events listed here are off by one day, and that Lan's forces do arrive at Kinslayer's Dagger on Danu 22nd. This would also change Moiraine and Siuan's first day as Aes Sedai to Danu 22nd, as well as a few other dates. It's also possible that Danu 23rd is the accurate date, and that Lan arrived the day after the Aiel entered the mountains.

Danu 23rd • Mid-Afternoon: While depositing her first stipend from the White Tower at a Tar Valon bank, Moiraine learns of Gorthanes' attempt to gain access to her financial records, and that her bankers' message to her was never delivered. [NSTN-H-180]

Janduin, grief-stricken over allowing Shaiel to fight while pregnant, and having lost both her and his infant son, abandons his place as clan chief of the Taardad. He goes north to fight Shadowspan in the blight, and is eventually killed by a man reported to resemble Shaiel. [TSR-H-393]

Brandelwyn al'Vere becomes the mayor of Emond's Field and the innkeeper of the Winespring Inn. [TEOTW-H-9]

979 NE

Taisham 2nd: Ellid Abareim dies while being tested for the shawl. [NSTN-H-191]

(Between Taisham 2nd and 11th): Over a period of time Kerene Nagashi, Aisha Raveneos, Valera Gorovni, Ludice Daneen and Meilyn Arganya all leave Tar Valon to begin their search for the Dragon Reborn. [NSTN-H-193]

Taisham 12th • High Chasaline/Day of Reflection: Sheriam Bayanar is raised to the shawl of the Aes Sedai and chooses the Blue Ajah. [NSTN-H-193]

Taisham 14th • Night: Tamra Ospenya, the Amyrlin Seat of the Aes Sedai, is tortured and killed by the Black Ajah, which had learned of the existence of the Dragon Reborn. Knowing only that the Dragon had been reborn, the Black Ajah, led by Jarna Malari, sets out to kill those Aes Sedai searching for him, and to kill any man who has the ability to channel. [NSTN-H-194 / ACOS-H-42 / WH-H-242]

Taisham 15th • Morning: The announcement of Tamra's death is made. The official explanation is that the Amyrlin died in her sleep. [NSTN-H-194]

Taisham 16th? • Morning: Funeral of Tamra Ospenya. [NSTN-H-195]

NOTE: Tamra is presumably buried on the morning after the announcement of her death, although none of the text directly states this. It is difficult to imagine that all of the Aes Sedai in the tower could prepare for her funeral on the same morning as her death was announced.

Taisham 17th? • Evening: Sierin Vayu of the Gray Ajah is raised to the Amyrlin Seat. Her rule lasts until 984 NE. Against Aes Sedai customs, Sierin does not grant relief from penances, but instead orders two sisters birched and three others exiled from Tar Valon for a year. [TWORJTWOT-216 / NSTN-H-196 / TFOH-H-214]

NOTE: Gitara was buried a day after the announcement of her death, and if this is custom for all Aes Sedai (and not just the Keeper), then Tamra would have been buried on Taisham 16th, and Sierin raised to the Amyrlin on the 17th.

(Taisham?): Moiraine approaches the new Amyrlin and requests to be removed from overseeing the payment of the bounty. The request is granted, but Moiraine is told not to leave the Tower. [NSTN-H-198]

(Saban?): Siuan learns of the death of Kerene, who had reportedly drowned in the Alguenya. Meilyn arrives at the White Tower later in the day, but Siuan is unable to speak to her. [NSTN-H-238]

(Saban? • The day after Meilyn returns) Morning: Chesmal Emery announces the death of Meilyn in her sleep the previous night. Siuan, aware that Meilyn had never slept in her room, later leaves Tar Valon to seek out Moiraine. [NSTN-H-238]

Spring (before Bel Tine in Kandor): Lan Mandragoran and Bukama Marenellin arrive in Canluum, Kandor. They take rooms at The Blue Rose, and Bukama is reunited with Racelle Arovni, the innkeeper. [NSTN-H-203]

Lan is found in The Blue Rose by Ryne Venamar, a friend and survivor from Malkier. Ryne tells Lan of Lady Edeyn Arrel's raising of the flag of Malkier. [NSTN-H-214]

Lan and Bukama are attacked by six men outside The Blue Rose. Lan defeats all six by himself. Ryne notes that some of the men were loyal to Edeyn. Lan decides to journey to Chachin to confront Edeyn. [NSTN-H-219]

(Aine?): Posing as a Cairhienin noblewoman named Alys, Moiraine visits Jurine Najima in Canluum as part of her search for infants who might be the Dragon Reborn. Moiraine finds that Jurine's recently deceased infant son, Jerid, was born at the wrong location during the Battle of the Shining Walls. [NSTN-H-222]

Moiraine returns to The Gates of Heaven in Canluum. Although five Aes Sedai are staying at the inn, she is unfamiliar with them and all believe her to be a wilder. [NSTN-H-225]

Moiraine encounters three more Aes Sedai at the inn: Cadsuane Melaidhrin, Merean Redhill and Larelle Tarsi. Cadsuane is curious to know why Moiraine is in Kandor, and Moiraine implies that she is seeking her first Warder. After Moiraine makes known her intent to travel to Chachin as soon as possible, Cadsuane arranges for Merean and Larelle to accompany her. [NSTN-H-225]

Siuan Sanche arrives in Canluum. She tells Moiraine of the deaths of the five Aes Sedai known to be searching for the Dragon Reborn, and of her suspicion regarding the death of Tamra Ospenya. Both assume the the Amyrlin and the five Aes Sedai were murdered by the Black Ajah. [NSTN-H-236]

Moiraine sends Siuan ahead to Chachin to start searching for Lady Ines. [NSTN-H-241]

Moirane sees an Arafellin man talking with an Aes Sedai at the Gates of Heaven. Unable to identify the sister, and on edge concerning the Black Ajah, Moiraine becomes curious. [NSTN-H-242]

Circa: The husband of Lady Ines Demain, a personal friend of Prince Brys, dies unexpectedly. [NSTN-H-304]

Morning: Intent on finding Avene Sahera, Moiraine leaves Canluum without Cadsuane's escort. She sees three men ahead, including the one she had seen earlier with an Aes Sedai, but keeps her distance until they separate. [NSTN-H-246]

Twilight: Moiraine follows one of the three men into the forest in order to question him about the Aes Sedai in Canluum. Hoping to catch him by surprise she attempts to take his sword. The man, Lan, responds by throwing her into a nearby pond. Bukama and Ryne return later, and Moiraine asks the three to escort her to Chachin. [TGH-TP-270 / LOC-H-709 / NSTN-H-248]

Night: Using the Power, Moiraine dumps a large portion of the pond on Lan as he stands watch over the camp. Although forced to reveal that she is Aes Sedai, Moiraine maintains her guise as Lady Alys. [NSTN-H-253]

Morning (One day out of Canluum): Lan's party arrives at Manala, a small village that is celebrating Bel Tine. They stop briefly before continuing to Chachin. [NSTN-H-257]

Noon (Four days out of Canluum): A group of bandits waylays Lan's party. After a display of the Power by Moiraine and a threat from Lan, the bandits flee. [NSTN-H-265]

Night (Five days out of Canluum): For the fifth night in a row, Moiraine uses the Power to irriate Lan, whom she believes owes her an apology and has not shown the proper respect to an Aes Sedai. [NSTN-H-267]

(Two days from Cachin): Arriving at the village of Ravinda, Moiraine finds Avene Sahera and learns that her son Migel was born at the wrong place and the wrong time to be the Dragon Reborn. [NSTN-H-269]

(Two days from Cachin): Some time after leaving Ravinda, Lan is hit by an archer. The attacker, mortally wounded by Ryne and Bukama, is Caniedrin, a soldier who had served with Lan during the Battle of the Shining Walls. Caniedrin's dying words imply the involvement of Gorthanes. [NSTN-H-270]

Lan's party arrives at Chachin. Lan and the others part ways with Moiraine, and Lan makes his way to the Aesdaishar Palace to find Edeyn. [NSTN-H-275]

Lan is reunited with Lady Edeyn, who pledges fealty to him in front of a large gathering that is honoring Malkier. Lan reminds Edeyn that he is not the King of Malkier. [NSTN-H-284]

Returning to his rooms in the palace, Lan encounters Edeyn and learns that she intends to see him married to her daughter, Iselle. [NSTN-H-286]

Twilight: Siuan finds Moiraine in Chachin, and takes her back to The Evening Star. Moiraine learns that Ines Demain, whose son Rahien was born near Dragonmount, is in mourning in the Aesdaishar Palace following the recent death of her husband. Moiraine develops a risky plan to gain access to Lady Ines. [NSTN-H-294]

Midmorning (Two days after arriving in Chachin): Moiraine, using her real name and noble status, but not revealing that she is Aes Sedai, arrives at the Aesdaishar Palace. Siuan acts as Moiraine's maid, Suki, and learns that Ines is in seclusion while mourning. [NSTN-H-303]

During an audience with Prince Consort Brys, Moiraine learns that Lan is the uncrowned King of Malkier. [NSTN-H-308]

Returning to her rooms, Moiraine encounters Merean, who indicates that Larelle had changed her mind about travelling to Chachin. Moiraine becomes suspicious about Larelle's fate. [NSTN-H-309]

Moiraine meets with Lan and asks for Merean's activities to be watched. After Moiraine reveals why the Aes Sedai failed to render aid to Malkier when it was attacked, Lan agrees to have Bukama watch Merean. [NSTN-H-311]

Night: Siuan returns with news that Lady Ines' child had been born one day after the Aiel retreat from Tar Valon, and that Bukama had witnessed Merean in the company of Prince Brys all day. [NSTN-H-316]

Lan, pushed by someone wielding the Power, is almost killed in a fall down a flight of stairs, after which he is told of a serious injury to Bukama. Lan arrives to find Bukama dead from a dagger in his back. [NSTN-H-320]

Lan confronts Moiraine about Bukama's death, and Moiraine, suspecting that Merean is Black Ajah and that Prince Brys is in danger, has Lan take her to Brys. [NSTN-H-322]

Lan and Moiraine find Merean holding Brys and Diryk with the One Power on a walk on the outside of the palace. Also present is Iselle, also held by Merean, and Ryne, revealed to be a Darkfriend. Merean reveals Ryne's involvement in Bukama's death. Ryne attacks Lan, and Merean and Moiraine engage in a fight with the One Power. [NSTN-H-323]

Shielded by Merean, Moiraine watches as Merean drops Diryk and then Brys off the walk to the rooftops below. Unable to channel, Moiraine stabs Merean as she attempts to move Iselle off the walk. Moiraine fails to catch Iselle in time and Iselle falls to he death. Lan barely defeats Ryne in combat. Moiraine disposes of Merean and Ryne's bodies, and Lan agrees to keep recent events a secret.

Dawn: Aesdaishar Palace mourns the sudden and unexplained deaths of Brys, Diryk and Iselle. [NSTN-H-329]

Lady Edeyn, mourning the loss of her daughter, abandons her efforts to revive the nation of Malkier. [NSTN-H-329]

Siuan reveals that Rahien was born in the wrong location to be the Dragon Reborn. Informed of Moiraine's fight with Merean, Siuan deduces that the Black Ajah, unaware of exactly when the Dragon was reborn, is attempting to kill any many who might be able to channel, including those that exhibit unusually good luck. Moiraine instructs Siuan to return to the White Tower and resume her work with Cetalia. [NSTN-H-330]

Moiraine leaves Chachin and tracks down Lan outside the city. She asks him to bond to her as her Warder, and then explains her quest to find the Dragon Reborn. Lan agrees and accepts the bond. The two return to Chachin, and then travel on to Arafel. [NSTN-H-332]
