Notes and references[edit | edit source]
- The Willow Sourcebook
- Shadow Moon
- According to Willow: A Novel, Mikal Tanthalos was about thirty-five when Bavmorda froze him in crystal. Since the cursing of Mikal must have happened between 18 and 13 BBN (see reference note 5), he must have been born between 53 and 48 BBN.
- Willow: A Novel
- According to Willow: A Novel, Mikal Tanthalos's daughter, Sorsha, was eighteen around the time of the battle of Nockmaar (placing her birth in 18 BBN). Since The Willow Sourcebook shows that Sorsha had already lost her father by age five, the cursing of Mikal must have taken place in 18 BBN at the earliest, and 13 BBN at the latest.
