There was some discussion about this on another board but I thought I'd post the link here and sticky it for easy reference. GKS isn't marked in the graphic just yet, but I think it started around 1407 (we first saw him as a boy of around ten, and he was born in 1397). In any event, it's early Chosun and overlaps just a bit with Tears of the Dragon.
The graphic is very useful as far as getting a handle on the different kingdoms and series.

Part of the most important, marine archaeological discovery ever made in South East Asia. The artefacts from the find are nearly 1,200 years old Among the artefacts was the largest Tang gold cup ever discovered and some of the finest Yue ware - a porcelain that the ancient Chinese likened to snow because of its delicacy.
The exceptional quality of the goods has led some scholars to suggest that these were gifts from the Tang Emperor himself. [snip]
Maybe it would be timely to have a historical drama message board ,i know for the big ones like Sejong they have their own and the rest go into other shows but what i have noticed is i do not see much crossover in posters from say Sejong to Other Shows and yet there is such an interest in these dramas and with a whole truckload coming in the next year . anyway its just a thought !!!no biggie .
Because this thread gets a first-page Google hit when you search "Korean historical drama timeline" despite being inactive for six years--and because our big timeline project doesn't get anything but a third-party hit on page 11--I'm adding a link to our timeline thread here:
