Below is a timeline of major events. For a more detailed one, check this page.

This is a timeline of the Warriors series, starting with Redstar's Prophecy. It is not a summary of books - it is a table that shows when a particular event occurred, so users can see the succession of events and calculate how much time passed between two moments, or how old a cat is at a certain point in the books.

Only major events and characters are listed. For additional details on plots, click on the book titles. For a complete list of births, check the Nursery page. For a complete list of deaths, check the StarClan and Place of No Stars pages. A blank box indicates that no cat was born and/or died at that time.
