Timeline of Archanea, Valentia, and Jugdral
The continents of Archanea, Valentia, and Jugdral occupy a single Fire Emblem series story universe. Though their stories are isolated from each other by thousands of years, they nonetheless share a clear link, manifesting in certain recurring characters and groups like the Divine Dragon Naga and the other dragon and Manakete tribes.
There are three separate calendar systems in operation in the world: the Grann Calendar of Jugdral, where the the calendar's Year 1 is the year of the founding of the ancient Grann Kingdom; a year in this system is typically called a Grann Year. The second system, used in Archanea, is the Archanea Calendar (AC), where Year 1 is the year of the founding of the Holy Kingdom of Archanea. Though never officially stated, the points at which the three calendars synchronise can be deduced with mathematics; the Earth Dragon Loptous, who participated in the Archanean Earth-Divine Dragon war that occured in the Archanean year -740 (that is, 740 years before the foundation of Archanea), made a blood pact with the priest Gair and arrived to Jugdral in the Grann year 440. Therefore, the Archanean year -740 is concurrent with the Grann year 440; to use the start of Genealogy of the Holy War as a point of synchronisation, which is set in Grann Year 757, it has been calculated to approximately be at -423 on the Archanea Calendar. The calendar in use at the time of Awakening is unknown, as is the exact time elapsed since Mystery of the Emblem; however, Tiki at one point says she is at least 3,000 years old by that point, giving a rough idea of the elapsed time period. The third system is the Valentian calendar (V.C.), whose Year 1 starts when a Zofian astronomer suggests the idea of a calendar system to Mila.
It should be noted that the synchronisation between the Archanea and Grann calendars is conjecture. Though grounded in information provided in guidebooks and games, it works on the assumption that the listed time period for the Earth-Divine Dragon war did indeed take place within the single year listed in the Mystery of the Emblem timeline, as opposed to the possibility of spanning multiple years. As such, it is very much subject to being incorrect and change should Intelligent Systems release a more detailed Archanea timeline. The synchronization between the Valentian and Archanean calendars, however, is much easier to deduce, due to the games' events occurring at around the same time period.
Though, another statement Tiki makes in Awakening, with some assumptions, may mark the calendar synchronization as roughly correct. Tiki mentions to Robin that Chrom does not resemble Marth, and instead resembles another ancestor that came 1000 years before Marth. If the ancestor Tiki speaks about is Sigurd or Seliph, this means Sigurd and his son came 1000 years before Marth, which roughly lines up with this current incarnation of the timeline. As noted, however, this relies on an assumption, and Tiki may not be talking about said characters (she is never shown meeting either character in Genealogy or Thracia); many people assume she is talking about Anri, however, Anri lived a mere 68 years before Marth, being his great granduncle.
It is possible some older guidebooks may no longer be accurate; however, this page is based on them in the absence of direct disconfirmation.

• Allying with Ferox, Chrom's Shepherds speed to Castle Plegia to rescue Emmeryn, but Emmeryn sacrifices herself to spare Chrom from having to choose between saving her and surrendering the Fire Emblem.

It is a ruin all dragons share. And the only end is one of total destruction. Thus it was that Naga bestowed Falchion upon Duma. She did so to prepare for the day our madness would drive the land to ruin, that the people might have a means to destroy us. That Falchion might become the fangs they lack…and the hope they deserve." — Mila, Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia
