• c. -4700 DR
  • Eaerlann rises among the ruins of Aryvandaar due to the efforts of young elven nobels from Sharrven. Their interests in restoring the elder realm while also allying with the dwarves of the North were matched in the interests of the Elders of Sharrven and Evereska to preventing the elves of Siluvanede from doing the same and repeating the same mistakes of the past. »

  • Seven Citadel's War
  • c. -4500 DR to -4300 DR
    High mages from Arcorar track House Dlardrageth to a secret lair beneath Ascal's Horn. With the aid of Eaerlanni forces, they slay several of the Dlardrageths. Other Siluvanedenn houses under Dlardrageth influence retaliate, beginning the Seven Citadels' War. Sarya Dlardrageth and her sons are captured, but the fey'ri-led Siluvanedenn fight on.
    These Skirmishes between the elite forces of Siluvanede and the fledgling forces of Eaerlann are sometimes collectively referred to as the Sixth Crown War. »

  • End of the Seven Citadel's War
    The Seven Citadel's War ends (due to the superior magics and elven dragonriders of Sharrven and Eaerlann), and Eaerlann forcibly annexes Siluvanede. Upon discovering the deceit of the fey'ri, untainted Siluvanedenn High Mages place the city of Myth Adofhaer in magical stasis, effectively fleeing to the far future to escape association with the fey'ri houses. Most of the surviving fey'ri warriors are imprisoned in Nar Kerymhoarth, the Nameless Dungeon, but some avoid capture and eventually spawn long-lived houses of demon-tainted elves that successfully conceal their nature. »

  • -3654 DR
  • A sarrukh lich of tremendous power disguises himself as a human archwizard and appears to the Netherese who have begun to learn magic from the Earlanni elves. Although he calls himself Arthindol, the Netherese dub him "Terraseer" for his power to see events all over the world. The Terraseer teaches secrets of the Art to humans and reappears to help them over the coming centuries, never seeming to age. Among his achievements are translations from many of the nether scrolls, the exploration of the Sword Coast North, the occupation of Old Owl Well, and the warning of impending doom at the hands of Karsus among many other prophecies and teachings. »

  • The Slaughter of Sharrven
    The elf realm of Sharrven fragments and falls due to an explosion in the monstrous population within the southern High Forest engineered by the fey'ri of Siluvanede. Survivors flee to Eaerlann and Evereska, and the realm lies vacant but for a few settlements and outposts (though the southern forest retain the name "Sharrven" until the modern era). While proof is sorely lacking, the paranoid elves of Siluvanede quickly blame the power-hungry mages of Netheril, and vow to slay any Netherese wizard that strays into their western High Forest realm. »

  • The Orc Marches
    The entire North erupts as great orc hordes stream south from the Spine of the World and the Ice Mountains to lay waste to all in their path. Illusk and Gauntlgrym fall to this onslaught, and Delzoun is devastated by countless orc assaults. Most of Illusk's population manages to escape by sea or by magic and is spared.

  • 523 DR [Year of Trials Arcane]
  • Younger moon elves of Clan Starym return to Myth Drannor from Eaerlann, Illefarn, and elsewhere to Myth Drannor, restoring that house as a social power and taking over the house lordship with the absence of Josidiah Starym. As a stalling maneuver to prevent Josidiah's loss of status, the Coronal demands that the current Lord, Illitran Starym draw his family's moonblade, long held in trust and undrawn since its forging to attest to the loyalty and worthiness of the clan and its lord.

    Lord Illitran Starym undergoes a Cleansing March, a three-month-long trek out into the deepest woods of Cormanthyr intended to purify his spirit and ready him for the responsibilities of wielding a moonblade. Unknown to all, he treks to Monader's abandoned temple and forges a pact with the imprisoned deity, allowing him to draw the blade upon his return to the City of Songs without suffering its retributive powers and corrupting the blade to be designed to slay humans and half-elves. »

This alliance is dubbed the Fallen Kingdom (the same name already given to Phalorm), much to the confusion of later historians. »
