The timeline of the Sith throughout the official Star Wars canon spans thousands of years. It begins more than 6,000 years before A New Hope and seemingly ends with the ultimate demise of Sidious and the Sith Eternal at the end of The Rise of Skywalker. There are all kinds of events that happen in the intervening millennia, from the creation of a corrupted shrine to multiple wars that see the Sith lose to their archenemies time and time again. Because, in the never-ending battle between the light and the dark side of the Force, it is the Jedi who always manage to somehow come out on top. Darth Bane could've come up with all kinds of various rules, and none of it would've mattered... the Sith are destined to lose. When all the Jedi throughout history can flow through Rey, how do the Sith even stand a chance? Come - take a journey and explore the timeline of the Sith in Star Wars!
