The Witcher is a huge hit for Netflix, but despite all the love, there has been some confusion when it comes to the show's timeline. Throughout The Witcher's first eight-episode season, we see the world and story through the eyes of three characters: the witcher himself, Geralt of Rivia, the powerful mage Yennefer of Vengerberg, and child of destiny Princess Ciri. The confusing part comes when, halfway through the first season, it's revealed that the episodes aren't all taking place at the same point in time. Where Ciri's story covers about 2 weeks' time, Geralt's spans around 20 years, and Yen's stretches to nearly 70.
To help paint a slightly clearer picture, we've untangled the timeline's web and placed things in (mostly) chronological order.
