Asgard's forces, led by Odin, come to their aid and together with the Lady Knight, they engage in a fearsome series of battles across the world which end with the Frost Giants defeated.

Laufey becomes King of the Frost Giants.

    • Gwion ap Gwreang, or "Gwion Bach," is born to a family of Druids. When they are attacked and massacred by King Uther Pendragon's knights, his mother puts him in a basket and sends him downriver, where he is found by a kindly fisherman, who raises him in Camelot and names him Taliesin. Gwion becomes the apprentice and errand boy of Gaius, the Court Physician, and learns magic and medicine from him and Merlin, becoming a bard on the side. Arthur Pendragon takes over leadership of Camelot and begins a Golden Age. While Taliesin is Walking the Earth, the Battle of Camlann takes place, Camelot falls, Merlin disappears, and Taliesin comes back to find his home in ruins. He flees to a high place near Camelot and rages against fate. The Time Stone appears to him and... alters him. He becomes Doctor Strange.

  • c. 1000 CE: Hogwarts is founded by the descendants of Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, and Slytherin. Loki builds the castle in about twenty minutes.
