  • Dates count from the founding of the Imperium, the year “zero ”.

  • The Imperium was founded in 0 (Zero).

Please see the following AAB articles for more information:


Description / Specifications[edit]

The year is divided into 365 standard days, which are grouped into 52 weeks of seven days each.

  • Days are numbered consecutively, beginning with one.
  • The first day of the year is a holiday and is not part of any week.

For example:

  • The first day (Holiday) of the year 1116 is 001-1116.
  • The last day of the year is 365-1116.

Notes: The lengths of days and weeks is a legacy of Terran domination during the Second Imperium or Rule of Man.

Terran Calendar Comparison[edit]

By the time of the Third Imperium in 1116, modern Anglic hadn't changed the content of a week, but it had changed the orthography or spellings of the names of the days:
