This section of the timeline consists of those noteworthy events in the Gargoyles Universe which took place in early history or prehistory, but cannot as yet be assigned to the timeline.

In distant prehistory, the "Lost Race", which preceded all Three Races and is now extinct, appears and then dies out. Gargoyles come into existence next, followed later on by humans and the Fair Folk. Avalon comes into existence at the same time as the Fair Folk.

Queen Mab becomes ruler of the Fair Folk, who are then known as "Children of Mab". During her reign, many of the Fair Folk mate with mortals, producing the Olympians (later on, the New Olympians). Later on, her son Oberon rebels against her and deposes her, becoming ruler of the "Children of Mab" in her place, whom he renames "Oberon’s Children". Later on, he magically forbids the Fair Folk from directly interfering in the lives of mortals.


2400 B.C. Around this time, the Sphinx is built in Egypt. The ancient Egyptians believe many of the Third Race, including Anubis, to be gods, and worship them.

1230 B.C. Around this time, Theseus slays the Minotaur in Crete.

753 B.C. Rome founded by Romulus. At some point between now and the reign of Caesar Augustus, the New Olympians retreat to New Olympus and seal themselves off from the outside world.

A.D. 10. The original Magus, at the bidding of Caesar Augustus, casts the "modesty spell" over the gargoyle race, causing their garments to turn to stone with them in the daytime.

Cuchulain lives in Ireland at about this time, and battles the Banshee with the Hound of Ulster, a gargoyle beast.

A.D. 60-61. The rebellion of Queen Boudicca of the Iceni against the Romans. (Boudicca the gargoyle beast is named after her).

975. Prince Malcolm marries Princess Elena. The Archmage attempts to steal the Phoenix Gate, but is thwarted by a time-travelling Xanatos; a grateful Prince Malcolm rewards Xanatos with the coin that he will need to found Xanatos Enterprises; Xanatos sends the coin to the Illuminati Society with his instructions.

Mary and Finella take the Grimorum Arcanorum back to Scotland, to keep it away from Constantine. The Archmage forms an alliance with the Weird Sisters.
