CHRONOLOGY OF XENA: WARRIOR PRINCESS



Introduction

[01] Based on a review of key historic figures and events portrayed in Xena: Warrior Princess, it would appear that the wide-ranging travels of Xena and Gabrielle lasted for about 3200 years.

[02] The chronology of the adventures of Xena and Gabrielle began with Abraham and Isaac c. 1876 BCE (aka Anteus and Ikus in ALTERED STATES). The episode BACK IN THE BOTTLE had our heroes fighting the mighty Khan, a conqueror in the mold of Jenghis Khan (1155-1227 CE).

[03] Through reincarnation, Xena and Gabrielle's travels continued through to the 21st century in SOUL POSSESSION, increasing their trek by 1000 years.

[04] The following chronology contains the known or accepted dates, characters, or events, for the related Xena episodes. Please note that certain dates and spellings vary by source.
