A pretty wild guess as to when this event
"Through the Millennia, the Time Lords of Gallifrey led a life of peace
and ordered calm, protected against all threats from lesser
civilizations by their great power. But this was to change. . ."
2,000,000 years the Time Lords become the one of the longest lived
culture in the History of the universe. Gallifreyans often claim
have had complete power for 10,000,000 years but many lesser
believe that the often-quoted 10,000,000-year figure for Time Lord
power was simply made up to suggest a very long time. At the end of the Time War Rassilon
will claim that the Time Lords have been around for 1,000,000,000
years. Its likely that this too is War Era
projections indicate that it is utterly impossible for a society such
as Gallifrey’s to remain stagnant for any of the above mentioned
numbers. It is possible
Time Lords being linked to the Fifth Dimension might explain this
inconsistency. Humans and Gallifreyans are the only races whose
cultures can not be accurately predicted by these projections.

Sisterhood of Karn. She
renegades from the Sisterhood and arrives on Gallifrey with a large
amount of Elixir. She convinced the High Council that she could
find a solution to the Curse of sterility and was made a Time
Lady. She takes the name Pandorastrumnelliahanfloriana (aka
Pandora). The name Pandora shows up in the

Pandorastrumnelliahanfloriana becomes the first female President
of Gallifrey. According to the book of the Old Time it is
permissible for a Lady
President to declare herself Imperiatrix. This Edict allows
Imperiatrix exclusive access to the
Matrix, the Great Key, and the biodata of the every Time Lord on
Gallifrey. She is not answerable to the High Council and has the
authority to disband the Chapters. Pandora took the title
Imperiatrix and begins overthrowing the traditions of
Rassilon, with a plan to take
Gallifrey to War.

earliest known face worn by the Doctor (Christopher Barry)
emerges from the looms as the Chris Barry Doctor.
The mystery of the Morbius Doctors is a tricky problem. They
appear to exist before the Doctor left Gallifrey, and yet the Doctor
and most (if not all Time Lords) reguard the Hartnell Doctor as the
Doctor's first body. It is know that the Doctor was married to
Patience for much of this time and that both he and his sons served on
High Council. It is known that the Doctor had not regenerated and
had no interested in romance when he turned 200 at the Academy.
In order to get married and have a son that served on the high Council
it would seem likely that the Doctor would be at least 330 when he was
in the Camfield body. However the Doctor's leaving Gallifrey
would have had to occur at this point. For now I'm
assuming that the Morbuis Doctor's were a reincarnation of the Other
that occured shortly before the birth of the Hartnell
married Patience, raised a family and the Doctor
(and his son) served on the High Council. When the Council
discovered that the Doctor having naturally born
children the Watch attacked and the family was scattered.
After experiancing at
least 8 incarnations the Other again enters the loom distributor and
was woven into the biodata of the hatnell Doctor, who was conceived
with the help of the Loom of Lungbarrow. Thus the Hartnell (and
subsequent Doctors) are a mix of the Other/Morbius Doctors and the half
human half Gallifreyan conceived by Ulyssess and Penelope.

Citadel to become a Time Lord, but
the President at the time (a female) won't let her enroll in the
Academy. (this is not the only female president that Gallifrey
has had, but there have not been many). She ends up living in one
of the New Towns under the Capitol.
One of the Councillors at the
Doctor's Trial is loomed.
The Doctor regenerates for the last time before becoming the First

10-20 years before the final battle on Karn)
A Witch-Queen of the Pythia
and a Sister of the Flame named Lady Peinforte becomes a
renegade and attends Morbius' rallies. She
share's his vision though they
argue a lot. She
becomes Morbius' mistress and lover. Morbius

Contempt. Their son became known as Cardinal Grandier on

Patrexian Councilor Morbius secretly orders the
creation of the
Order of the
Weal (aka the Order
of the Good),
which becomes the Time Lords first counter intelligence
service. This ruthless group of
rationalists wasn’t allied with any particular House or Chapter.
Chatalaine Thessalia of the abandoned House of Ixion becomes its first
Chatelaine director if the Order, and the Order was based at the House
of Ixion. It is rumored that Morbius is romantically involved
the time that
the Order of the Weal is created)
There are rumors that the
Interventionists might have altered Gallifrey’s mythology using the Eye
(879 years before the War / 10 years before Morbius
becomes President /almost 900 years before
House Arpexia begins Catherion Imprimatur experiment
(probably at the
request of Morbius). They attempt to produce a sentient type of
called Babels. The Babels would be able to control the Casts
relying input from Gallifrey, making them an independent military
force. The Babels were produced using the disused Loom of the
Catherion, wich was purchased from its Chapter. The Order of the
probably has a hand in their creation.
(Possibly older than the Doctor given that became a Junior Time Lord
(aka Vansell) is loomed. He is a Prydonian.
He prefers to be known as Vansell because ostophossius
is terribly common.
The Time Lord known as the War Chief (and nicknamed

(before the Doctor is loomed)
least one of the 45 Cousins of the House of

Quences's life the House
Lungbarrow has produced only servants and petty clerks.
(Shortly before the Doctor is born)
It becomes fashionable for
"independent" (ie Renegades) Time Lords to renounces their given name
and give themselves a new name.
The Doctor's father Ulysses meets a human named
Penelope Gate and marries her.
She is a slightly plump human
from Sol III (Earth) with gray eyes, long red hair and a cut-glass
voice. She comes from
Victorian Era and 'invented' a time machine when she was 27 years old.The
Doctor's mother might be British. She might have had a weakness for
The Temple of the Fourth and the Oath of the

comes to Time"
-The Oath of the Fraction
years before Death Comes to Time)
The Fraction travels to Micen
Island in the Orion Nebula. Unfortunately
species competition for the Fraction's assistance leads to the destruction of the entire population of the planet. In response to this the
Fraction construct the Temple of the Fourth Dimension on Micen Island.
Inscribed inside this temple is the Oath of
the Fraction. They forswear the Power and continue
to serve the Universe as mere men. The Fraction
scattered throughout the
Universe to live.
(after the Micen
Two of the Time Lords
the Micen Island incident, Valentine
Antenor become known as the Saints because
they renounce all forms of violence. They settle on Sol III (Earth). Valentine's epitath

after an adventurer from his wife's planet.

attack on the Shoal)
By this point Marnal has already become known
mockingly as a "crusader."
(probably shortly before Marnal attacks
the Vore / before TID)
The Time Lady Larn leaves the future and travels
back into Gallifrey's relative past (from her point of view). This is a
violation of the Laws of Time. She does this as part of her
Project to help Gallifrey survive various dangers so that it falls at
the correct time. She also helps Ulysses study the Vore's Temporal Cicatrix Scar. The
High Council knows of Ulysses secrete researches but don't know about Larn.
(probably arround 270 days
The Time Lord Ulysses
and Human woman Penelope Gate use the Loom of the House of
Lungbarrow to facilitate an interspecies pregnancy and conceive a
child. Possibly as a result of the
Micen Island incident the Chris Baker Doctor jumps looms and is woven into the biodata of Penelope
and Ulysses's child. This child will become the
Doctor. The Other/Doctor
loses all memory of
Patience and and his time as the Morbius Doctors. Ulysses will arrange
the Doctor "loomed" into the House of
from a family of explorers.
The 7th Doctor claims that he as been
born from a Womb twice. This probably referes to the the
birth of the Other and the birth of the Doctor (via Ulyssess and
to the Looming of the William Hartnell Doctor!
