Notes

  1. The Israelites are stated to have wandered the desert for 40 years, but this may not be literal; the Bible tends to use '40 years' to mean 'a really long time'. Still, it's the best we've got.
  2. Not the same one that married Omri
  3. Ezekiel 1:1 opens 'in the thirtieth year'. Since verse 1:2 places the events of this chapter in the fifth year of the captivity of king Jehoiachin, the reference to 30 years is presumably Ezekiel's age.
  4. Month is not given. Presumed to be Nisan, the first day of which in the 11th year of the Babylonian captivity corresponds to March 19 in the Gregorian calendar.
  5. Stated to occur in the fifth year of the Babylonian captivity. The date is given as the seventh day of the month, but the month is not stated, so presumably is Nisan. Nisan 7 corresponds to March 29, 581 BCE in the Gregorian calendar.
  6. The Bible places this in the first year of the reign of Darius II, son of Xerxes II. However, this would place the prophecy in 423 B.C.E., after the events it foretells have come to pass, and would make Daniel over 200 years old by then. Hence, we are assuming the author meant Darius I, son of Cambyses II, placing the prophecy in 522 B.C.E. This means Daniel is still old at this point, but less impossibly so.
  7. 1 a.t.b.
  8. (yes, two years after his death)
  9. Stated in the Gospel of Matthew to have occurred on Passover, which occurs on the 15th of Nisan in the Hebrew calendar. In 33 CE, Nisan 15th was April 2nd by the Gregorian calendar.
  10. The Deverrian year starts on November 1st, so some dates in it might be off by one.
  11. They cause the Vesuvius eruption in the process, killing thousands of citizens. However, they rescue Caecilius and his family.
  12. Jacob becomes the protector of the Island and its source. The Man in Black attempts to take this power, but is transformed into a monster. Earlier, their adopted mother gives the now immortal rivals a "loophole" that prevents the two from killing each other.
  13. An alliance of the Doctor's enemies trap him inside the box to avert the cracks in time. The Doctor escapes thanks to his future self, and places Only Mostly Dead Amy and his screwdriver inside it, to be reawakened in the 1990s. A Nestene duplicate of Rory begins to guard the Pandorica.
  14. Namekians reproduce asexually by coughing up an egg, although it harshly ages them
  15. According to the Dragon Ball Daizenshuu (via Dragon Ball Wiki), the unknown Namekian splits into Kami and Piccolo in 461. The Black Star Dragon Balls are stated by Pilaf to have been created before the split (which is why they still work even after Kami and Piccolo merge in the Cell saga)
  16. Ostensibly Non Serial Movie, but canon to the anime series thanks to the Filler Arc between Frieza and Cell.
  17. by the calendar on the wall, even though they set the Wayback Machine for "the 6th century"
  18. by Frieza out of fear
  19. Ostensibly Non-Serial Movie, but canon to the anime series thanks to the Filler Arc between Frieza and Cell.
  20. Demona fails to change her destiny, but David Xanatos sends a coin to his future self that sets up his fortune.
  21. A time-traveling Archmage saves his past self and takes him to the future.
  22. really an alien made of energy that feeds on fear
  23. who would go on to style himself as 'The Black Adder'
  24. Said leader is Rodrigo Borgia, also known as Pope Alexander VI. Ezio defeats him, but lets him live.
