  • Prince Albert dies of typhoid.

1867 Edit

1873 Edit

  • The events of Soulless occur. No specific month but the ladies are swanning around Hyde Park during the Season so it has to be sometime between late spring and late summer. Probably more towards the latter half of the year.[7]

1874 Edit

  • The events of Changeless. Winter, probably January or February, because it follows relatively quickly on the heels of Soulless but the weather is atrocious.[8]
  • The events of Blameless take place the following spring after Changeless. These first three books formulate a pretty cohesive trilogy both temporally and plot wise. That is one of the reasons the mangas stick to these three books.[9]
  • The events of Heartless take place in July. Because of Alexia's condition this date is very firmly fixed. Also, the time and location hinge on one of the key events that occurs in this book. In the real world, the Pantechnicon burned as well.[10]

1876 Edit

  • The events of Timeless take place in April, 1876. There's a time jump between these two books, for reasons to do with Prudence.[11]
