So, long story short, the newly released Total War: Warhammer has reawakened a bit of my interest in Fantasy lore, and I've been googling more obscure stuff, like the Wood Elves in Laurelorn in Nordland and whatnot.
Anyway, I came across this timeline on a site, and read through much of it, and there's a lot there I've never heard of before, like ancient human empires in the badlands (aside from Khemri, I mean), human civilization in Lustria (aside from the Amazons) and so on.http://www.bugmansbrewery.com/tutorials/article/30-the-warhammer-world-history/
So, does anyone know of this is partly fanmade, or if it is all taken from canon sources? And if they are, are they taken from radically different editions (where the tone might vary) or are they fairly up-to-date?
Part of why I'm asking is because there's some stuff there's that's really quite interesting (pre-Druchii humans in Naggaroth for example) and on the other hand there are some really
cringeworthy things, like Aleksandr the Conqueror of the Hellene City-states, or Prophet Mulhaed al-Quayt launching a jihad against the empire of Constantin which would eventually be renamed to Istrabul.
