The timeline is the way in which events occur chronologically.

After discovering the Kronos stone, Hercules warned Autolycus not to mess with the timeline. (HTLJ: "The End of the Beginning")

Most Gods have the ability to alter the timeline as they need, although they rarely practice it. Some notable examples include:

Background informationEdit

The timeline, as presented in Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, Xena: Warrior Princess, and Young Hercules, is grossly inconsistent with real-life events. For example, the series show Gilgamesh (who historically lived circa 2700 BCE) and Caligula (12-41 CE) as contemporaries. According to some scholars, the mythological Heracles existed in the mid 1200s BCE.

The episode "Send in the Clones" explicitly places the time of Xena and Gabrielle's death as between the 1000 BCE and 1 CE. The episode "Once Upon a Future King" is more exact, however. The events of that episode occur "1000 winters" before 500 CE. This places the events in the year 501 BCE.
