  • End of the Fifth Crown War
    The Fifth Crown War ends with the utter defeat of the Vyshaan and the dissolution of Aryvandaar. Much of the High Forest is abandoned for an age, leaving the forest open so the gods might restore its peace. Many elves begin migrating back to the Elven Court in the eastern forests, while others migrate into the Inner Sea (this marks the last great elven migration to Seros). Keltormir and Illefarn emerge intact from the Crown Wars, and the latter realm joins with the vassal realm of Ardeep now that Shantel Othreir is no more. »

  • -1100 DR
  • Aelinthaldaar, the capital city of Illefarn, is razed by elven High Magic on the order of Illefarn's coronal, Syglaeth Audark and then orders a retreat to Evermeet. Virtually nothing is left to indicate that an elf city had stood on the site for seven millennia. Illefarn fragments into the independent elven realms of Ardeep (present-day Ardeep Forest), Illiyanbruen (present-day Neverwinter Wood) and Rillthar (present-day Westwood and Kryptgarden Forest). By year's end, human barbarian trives are using the site for its excellent deepwater harbor. »

  • 177 DR [Year of the Troublesome Vixen]
  • The elves of Iliyanbruen destroy the orcs of the Severed Hand and Argrock, though the effort costs much of their strength. Within three years, Iliyanbruen is no more.

  • 292 DR [Year of Frostfires]
  • Queen Embrae Aloevan, Laranla of Ardeep, embraces the service of both Mystra and Sehanine and is made a Chosen of both goddesses. »

  • 308 DR [Year of Promise]
  • Queen Embrae Aloevan of Ardeep, chosen of Mystra and Sehanine, descends into madness and death as the silver fire of Mystra consumes her, although later reports suggest she survives after a fashion beyond the ken of mortals (actually to become the Tears of Aloevan). Ruardh Lightsilver becomes Laranlor (Ruler) of Ardeep. »

  • 342 DR [Year of the Cantobele Stalking]
  • Athalantar falls to an orc horde from the High Moor. The orcs are in turn destroyed by an unlikely alliance of moon elves from Ardeep and dwarves from Dardath. The last Council of Illefarn is called, and the long-fragmented elf realm of Illefarn is officially dissolved with the remaining wood elves of Illiyanbruen and many wood elves from Rilithar departing for Evermeet. Ardeep and Dardath formally ally and look to create further alliances with the humans of the region. »

  • 523 DR [Year of Trials Arcane]
  • Realm of Three Crowns
    The raising power of orc hordes in the North leads to the calling of the Council of Axe and Arrow. There, the humans of Delimbiyran, the dwarves of Dardath, the elves of Ardeep Forest, the gnomes of Dolblunde, and displaced halflings from Meiritin collectively found the Tri-Crowned Kingdom of Phalorm. The aging Ulbaerag rejects an invitation to join the Realm of Three Crowns. »

  • 615 DR [Year of the Lamia's Kiss]
  • In response to Uthtower's call for aid, the lich Iniarv floods the land, drowning the armies of Uthtower, Phalorm, and the orcs and forming the Mere of Dead Men. The orcs flee into the Sword Mountains, and Phalorm (the Fallen Kingdom, as it comes to be known) collapse when its Fair Folk abandon Faerun for Evermeet. Ardeep remains an elf realm in name only. »

  • 882 DR [Year of the Curse]
  • Moon elf refugees from Eaerlann resettle Ardeep and rebuilt the realm. A brief alliance with the humans dwelling along the Delimbiyr and the dwarves of the Forlorn Hills founders because of lingering suspicious about the role of humans in the fall of Ascalhorn, later to be known as Hellgate Keep. This alliance is dubbed the Fallen Kingdom (the same name already given to Phalorm), much to the confusion of later historians. »
