Xanth

This is a collection of my notes about the Xanth series I have gathered. There are many major families, kings, places, and species. This section also covers The Apprentice Adept and Incarnations of Immortality series, since they have become tangentially connected to Xanth.

If some of this looks familiar, I started a lot of Xanth related articles on Wikipedia. Several of them have now been deleted, but I was able to save my work here. This section is very incomplete; there is a lot that is covered in the forty-one novels.

The novels begin in the Xanthian year of 1042 and are currently in the year 1117. Many novels cover events that happened before 1042. You can read the timeline to get a brief overview of the history of Xanth.

I want to thank Douglas Harter for all of his work putting together the list of characters on HiPiers. I could not have completed the family trees without him.
