Timeline of Fódlan
The land of Fódlan and its surrounding territories occupy their own Fire Emblem series story universe, with no known ties to any other universe (aside from the existence of the Three Regalia and Hauteclere from Archanea, though it is not explained how these came to appear in Fódlan). Much of the history of Fódlan is recounted in documents stored in the library at Garreg Mach Monastery; it should however be noted that falsified versions of history were widely propagated by the Church of Seiros, so it is possible these documents are not completely accurate.
Fódlan uses a calendar known as the "Imperial calendar" whose epoch is the establishment of the Adrestian Empire, with the years counted relative to the empire's foundation in Imperial Year 1. The new year of this calendar begins in the fourth month, the Great Tree Moon.
Events in Fódlan's backstory

• Sothis's descendants, the Children of the Goddess, are born from Sothis's blood.

• As Agartha grows ever stronger, they eventually clash with Sothis and the Children of the Goddess. Humanity is almost wiped out in the ensuing battle, and their survivors are driven underground to Shambhala; their descendants eventually become known as those who slither in the dark.
• Sothis creates new life to repopulate the now mostly vacant Fódlan. Sothis retires to the Holy Tomb to recuperate, and the Children of the Goddess base themselves in Zanado.
• Sothis is killed by Nemesis, and her remains are taken by those who slither in the dark. Her bones are used to create the Sword of the Creator, her heart is used to create its Crest Stone, and her blood is taken by Nemesis, who obtains the Crest of Flames as a result.

I hope you can forgive me one day." — One of the 10 Elites in Fragments of a Forgotten Memoir's introductory narration, Fire Emblem: Three Houses

- ↑ "Edelgard: Professor... Do you know the true story behind the legend? The Relics were created by the hands of mankind. Seiros collected them after killing the 10 Elites. Seiros manipulated the people of the world and defeated the all-powerful King Nemesis.
Byleth: Why would she do that?
Edelgard: The church maintains the false history that he was corrupted and turned evil. However, it was little more than a simple dispute.
Edelgard: Should the one leading the people of the world be someone with humanity or a creature that can merely masquerade as a human at will? In the end, Seiros was victorious. The Immaculate One and her family then took control of Fódlan. I know this because that knowledge is passed down from emperor to emperor. And that is because the first emperor is the human who cooperated with Seiros, allowing humanity to be controlled in secret." — Edelgard in Crimson Flower Chapter 14, Fire Emblem: Three Houses
- ↑ "In Imperial year 185, the construction of Garreg Mach was completed. Saint Seiros held a sacred ritual to honor the occasion.
Four Saints, known as the Four Apostles, were led to a tranquil place to perform the ritual. They poured their holy essences into the Chalice of Beginnings—a gift from the Goddess herself—in hopes of bringing about her second coming. Alas, the rite of rising failed.
Bearing the blame for the ritual's failure, the Four Apostles left the monastery." — Cindered Shadows Chapter 1's introductory narration, Fire Emblem: Three Houses
- ↑ "I hear the Officers Academy of the monastery was founded about two centuries ago. The eastern region of Fódlan was being invaded by Almyra, and so the archbishop of the time took measures to prevent the border from being taken. In order to ensure Fódlan would be safe from potential threats, she deemed it necessary to raise a generation of excellence. That is how the establishment was founded, though its purpose has changed over the years." — Student, Fire Emblem: Three Houses

After that, she was awarded the honor of being a mage in the service of the royal family." — Sylvain during monastery exploration in Chapter 8, Fire Emblem: Three Houses
