slaughterj said:Thanks for the info. I wouldn't doubt that there are a number of other things like this that can catalogued, e.g., times for battles, rebellions, slain significant figures, etc., which would be nice to have in a timeline.
I highly recommend an article by Jim Neal called Havoc in Hyboria: A Study of Warfare in Conan's World, which appeared in The Savage Sword of Conan the Barbarian no. 55. It lists all the major conflicts and rebellions, putting them into the context of Conan's age.
For example, when Conan was ten years old, Baal-Pteor was eighteen and had been graduated, moving from strangling babies, young girls and young men to strangling adults. Baal Pteor also began studying hypnotism at this time.
It is an excellent article, and well worth the search for that issue. (Be warned, the early issues of SSoC, including this one, does include nudity. Although I am highly in favour of nudity, some readers today may not be.)
