You might notice some inconsistencies such as fate of the Necrolytes, or the fate of Gul'dan, etc. These were directly quoted from the timeline itself, and are presented here for historical and publishing record, and for comparison with other timelines. Please do not try to alter this time line to make it conform to the Timeline (unofficial) or later timelines. That is not the intent of this article. Thanks.Baggins 03:19, 5 January 2007 (EST)
There is a typo in the year 0.
Lord Lothar leads an exodus of refugees to the northern nation of Lordaeron. Once there, he convinces the leaders of the seven Human nations to unite in arms against the Horde. The seperate nations of the Arathorian empire are reunited as the Alliance of Lordaeron. Through the chaos, Thrall was born. This young Orc was found and captured by humans, and raised as a slave and gladiator.
