Following is a compiled timeline of important events in the Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha series. The Mid-Childan New Calendar, as seen in StrikerS, is used to date the recent events. This timeline reflects the primary continuity of the Nanoha franchise, with dates from alternate continuities sometimes used to fill in the gaps, as long as they don't contradict the primary continuity events.


Ancient timesEdit

Prehistory (先史 Senshi) / Warring Ages
Belka expands its own territory not only into other countries but also other worlds thanks to the use of advanced mass-based weapons. Belkan scientific advances are attributed to technological outflow from Al-Hazard over 1000 years ago. Around the same time, with great technological advancements in the field of human life manipulation, many Kings decide to magically strengthen their own bodies and force that same fate upon their descendants. However, the Warring Ages end with the fall of the Belkan nation after their homeworld becomes an uninhabitable due hundreds years worth of pollution, possibly caused by the unrestrained use of mass weaponry.
Saint King Unification War
The Saint King lineage transfers itself to peripheral worlds using the Saint's Cradle and sets out to rebuild their empire after its collapse with the fall of Belka. The resulting war ends with the loss of the Cradle and the death of the last member of the Belkan royal family. The Belkan survivors settle down quietly across the multiverse and abandon their old ethnonym completely. It is also around this time that the Ancient Belka magic system is completely lost in time, except for the parts stored in the Book of Darkness.

Although canon sources are vague about the dates, it may be inferred that the Saint King Unification War ended some 20 years before the adoption of the modern Mid-Childan calendar.[1]

Modern eraEdit

The last member of the Belkan royal family, Olivie Sägebrecht, becomes an object of worship for putting an end to the war and the Saint Church is formed as a result. Mid-Childa, as the new dominant power of the multiverse, bans mass-based weaponry due the great danger associated with it. TSAB is established to promote peace among the dimensional worlds. Saint Church becomes the successor to many Belkan traditions and, in return for their cooperation with TSAB, is granted a region in the Northern Mid-Childa that is now the Belkan Self-Administrated Area.
