- Timeline (and File:World timeline.odt) -- "This is my 1st attempt at a timeline to be memorized. It is based on a bunch of data gathered here & there on the web, and filtered by me. In fact, I believe that a thing like this is a bit personal, e.g. I've got no interest at all in the tiresomely long sequence of succession wars in Europe, but I'm interested in Chinese dynasties, so see for yourselves. I attempted to make it hierarchical, deciding where an event falls ("Most Important!" "Relatevely Important" "Additional Details..."). This is due to the fact that the amount of data is (for me at least) a bit much, more than 350 events, so I'd like to place in the palace the 1st level events only at first, then in a second and third step add the additional data." --Alexxx 02:46, 5 March 2012 (CST)
