The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen timeline


The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen timeline

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen is an ongoing graphic novel series written by Alan Moore and illustrated by Kevin O'Neill. The primary commentator on the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen series (hereto after in this article referred to as LoEG), is Jess Nevins, whose published works are considered the most complete annotations of all the various literary references made by this series. This timeline is composed of events that take place in "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen", Volumes I and II, "Allan and the Sundered Veil" (ATSV), and events hinted at or briefly covered in the expansive work "The New Traveller's Almanac" (TNTA), as well as "The Black Dossier", all of these works written by Alan Moore and illustrated by Kevin O’Neill. However, ATSV and TNTA are text-based stories which take the form of a serialized, pulp-style "Boy's Story" (Allan and the Sundered Veil) and a travel guide, (The New Traveller's Almanac) respectively, with a few illustrations by Kevin O'Neill, rather than being in graphic novel form. All entries directly derived from these LoEG books will be represented by "italicized" entries in order to differentiate LoEG canon from the works it draws from.

It should be noted that in order to place these varied events into chronological order, and to get the best sense of the Leagues' activities, there is some speculation as to probable times and orders of events, as well as mention of several events which, while happening to characters contained in LoEG, do not actually occur in LoEG, but in the original works the characters were taken from, these entries shall not be italicized. Since LoEG is a crossover fiction, there are several events which the writer of LoEG will assume the reader already knows about the character, and these events can be considered canon. At some points, however, the fictional canon of LoEG comes into conflict with the worlds of the various fictional works used as components of the LoEG fiction. These places are clearly marked, but as a general rule, unless specifically noted, the events of the sampled fictional canon all are assumed to have happened as depicted in the original work, with the addition of being in a world in which the events of all the other fictional bodies have taken place as well.

Secondly it should be noted that this timeline is written in ignorance of the events of "Century" by Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill, which is currently scheduled to be released in 2008. Sufficient to say, there will be much needed addition and correction to this timeline with the release of "Century".

Thirdly, it should be noted that in order to avoid the timeline being too cluttered with notations, the members of the various Leagues and other, comparable organizations present in LoEG are listed at the bottom of the page with a complete list of their bibliographical origins.

(Alice, [Miss A.L.] , from "Through the Looking-Glass" by Lewis Carroll and "The New Traveller's Almanac" Chpt.1 pg.3 by Alan Moore Note: the death of Alice is an invention of Moore's for his league universe and is not in Caroll's book)

Unfortunately, rather than sending him to another life, this herb sends him to an ethereal plane where he encounters other such ethereal travellers. In an uncertain time and place outside of our normal realm of existence, Allan Quatermain encounters John and Randolph Carter, the former a Confederate soldier whom was intercepted during his initial astral projection to the planet Mars, and the latter a Massachusetts scientist studying the realm of deep dreams. They are soon met by the Time Traveller, who informs them that there are extra-dimensional creatures invading their reality, and that he has gathered them to tackle the problem. Unfortunately, the Time Traveller's plans are somewhat disturbed by a number of factors, and none of his recruited heroes remember their experience with the Time Traveller other than as a half-remembered dream. However, it stands to reason that the Time Traveller, not being restricted to linear time, will again try to contact such heroes across time in order to stop the invasion of our reality that British Intelligence has feared since the late 17th Century." (From "Allan and the Sundered Veil" and "The New Traveller’s Almanac" by Alan Moore/Kevin O'Neil. "Taduki" from H. Rider Haggard's Quartermain Series)

1890s

The painting hereafter begins to decay again until some time before mid-1898 when it is brought to the British Museum for restoration. ("Dracula" by Bram Stoker, "The Picture of Dorian Gray" by Oscar Wilde, "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Volume 2", Chapter 3: "And the Dawn Comes Up Like Thunder" by Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill)
*July 1890 – "Captain Nemo (Prince Dakkar) and his crew travel to the Cape of Good Hope in the "Nautilus" submersible and encounter several strange islands along the way, including Nacumera".

*1894The Great Detective Sherlock Holmes returns to England, though secretly (probably under an assumed name), and will remain so until 1903 when Doctor John Watson begins publishing his account of the Great Detective’s cases again. Though, in Dr. Watson’s later accounts of the cases between 1894 and 1903 he will skew the facts slightly to the effect of making it appear that the Great Detective’s return was known – this annoying anachronism may have been the choice of Dr. Watson’s editor and Literary Agent, Arthur Conan Doyle. Captain Nemo makes extensive explorations of Antarctica, circumnavigating the continent and making extensive explorations of the interior. ("The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" by Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill, "The New Traveller’s Almanac" by Alan Moore)
*1895 – The man later known as the Time Traveller finishes his fantastic time machine and begins his temporal adventures. For the purposes of this time-line, however, these anachronistic travels appear in the order they would appear on the timeline proper, not in the order the Time Traveller perceived them. ("The Time Machine" by H. G. Wells)
*1897Hawley Griffin disappears from public view when he becomes The Invisible Man. "Jonathan and Wilhelmina Harker publish their accounts of the Dracula Incident some seven years previous", and Wilhelmina gives birth to the couple’s only son before their divorce some time the following year. Note: there is no further mention of the son, living or dead, in either Dracula or LoEG. "Ishmael, first officer aboard the Nautilus, reports a sighting of the "ghost submersible" around Drake Passage, later known as the Yellow Submarine, as recorded in the Nautilus’s logbook by Captain Nemo." ("The New Traveller’s Almanac" Chpt.3 Pg.2 by Alan Moore)
*c. 1898 – It is unclear as to the events surrounding Wilhelmina and Jonathan’s divorce, or what happened to their son. Regardless, they were divorced, and their son is nowhere to be seen. The only clue is that there is some antipathy between the two. Also, some time in late 1897 or early 1898, Wilhelmina, now going by her maiden name of Murray, begins, assuming she was not already, working for British Intelligence and recruits Captain Nemo into her new fledgling League. ("The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Volume 1", Chapter 1: “Empire Dreams” by Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill, and "Dracula" by Bram Stoker)
*April, 1898 - The "Titan", a British passenger liner, strikes an iceberg in the North Atlantic and sinks around midnight.

*Early July, 1898 – A unified coalition of Martian armies under the command of John Carter, of Virginia, and , of the United States Navy, make one final attack on the last stronghold of the alien creatures which have plagued Mars for some time, creatures they call the Molluscs. The siege is successful only by using the combined strength of all the significant armies of Mars, including the giantish Sorns. Unfortunately, the Molluscs manage to escape in several cylinder shaped refugee ships bound for Earth. The launch of these craft are seen on Earth, and believed to be volcanic eruptions (as reported in a newspaper seen in LoEG Vol. 1 on about July 6, 1898).

*c. July 6-7, 1898 – The League make inquiries as to the location of the Devil Doctor, the "Lord of Limehouse" in London, reconnoitring back at the "Nautilus" (which has dropped anchor in the Thames River in Wapping, London) that evening, which has become their lodging in London. Through infiltration, sabotage, subterfuge, suspicion, quick thinking, and good old fashion violence the League manage to foil the sieges of London’s West and East ends, the Devil Doctor’s minions suffering heavy losses, and the presumed death of Professor James Moriarty. However, London’s East end suffers heavy property damage and loss of life – this is the first of many aerial disasters which will strike London in the next half century. ("The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Volume 1", Chapter 3: "Mysteries of the East" and Chapter 4: "Gods of Annihilation" by Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill)
*Mid-Late July, 1898The Molluscs, falsely called Martians by the public of Earth, land in South England. The League, under Wilhelmina Murray, is dispatched to investigate, and witness the onset of "Martian" aggression. ("The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Volume 2", Chapter 1: "Phases of Deimos" and Chapter 2: "People of the Land" by Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill), War of the Worlds by H. G. Wells)
*Sunday, August 7, 1898 – The war with the "Martians" has reached just south of London, where Captain Nemo and Mr. Hyde, in the "Nautilus" take part in fighting along the locks connecting to the River Thames, defending London from its inevitable siege. Meanwhile Wilhelmina Murray and Allan Quatermain arrive in Waterloo, England, to seek out a secret British research installation run by the eccentric scientist Dr. Alphonse Moreau.

*Early-Mid August, 1898 – Final victory over the "Martian" in the Battle of South London. Hawley Griffin is tortured and killed by Hyde. Citing moral issues, Captain Nemo resigns from the League and returns to his family on Lincoln Island. Edward Hyde is killed by "the Martians," who are then felled by a hybrid virus created by Dr. Moreau and released by MI5. ("The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Volume 2", Chapter 5: "Red in Tooth and Claw" and Chapter 6: "You Should See Me Dance the Polka…" by Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill, "War of the Worlds" by H. G. Wells)
*September 30, 1898Wilhelmina’s League officially dissolved. ("The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Volume 2", Chapter 6: "You Should See Me Dance the Polka..." by Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill and "The New Traveller’s Almanac" by Alan Moore)

The two of them make acquaintance with Randolph Carter, who has been researching the realm of dreams, and has been investigating along similar lines". ("The New Traveller’s Almanac" Chpt.3 Pg.8 by Alan Moore, "Allan and the Sundered Veil" by Alan Moore] , the Dream Cycle series created by H. P. Lovecraft)
*1899Serpentine Park renamed Hyde Park after the events of 1898, and a statue of Edward Hyde, by Jacob Epstein, erected in Hyde’s honour. "Allan Quatermain and Wilhelmina Murray return to England from America and begin the investigation of the United Avondale Phalanstery. The investigation occupies them "until the late months of 1900".

1901-1905

*Late 1900 – "Wilhelmina Murray follows Allan Quatermain to Africa, who is in search of the City of Kôr and the Fire and Life, in order to rejuvenate himself. On the sea trip to Africa, Wilhelmina records several interesting, though previously explored, islands that the ship passes. Then on Dec. 24 Wilhelmina Murray writes that they've located Kor in the "British Protectorate of Uganda" on the Fantippoan Postmaster General's "detailed map of Africa." ("The New Traveller’s Almanac" Chpt.4 Pg.5,6,7 by Alan Moore, "" by H. Rider Haggard
*January 8, 1901 – "Wilhelmina Murray and Allan Quatermain trek southeast from the Kingdom of Fantippo, in Africa, to Uganda and the hidden city of Kôr, passing several interesting kingdoms and lands as they go, and finding the Fire of Life as well as a "stone etched map of Abyssinia... by the crater pool." ("The New Traveller’s Almanac"Chpt.4 Pg.7 by Alan Moore, "Doctor Dolittle's Post Office" by Hugh Lofting, "" by H. Rider Haggard)
*1901 – The difficulties encountered in the effort to rebuild London after the Martian Invasion of 1898, and also the strain of returning to full military strength, is cited as one of the primary reasons England loses the Boer War. The Airship Wars break out between the German Empire and the United States, and quickly spreads throughout Europe – devastating London and other major cities. The English lunar expedition, delayed in 1898 from its original goal of reaching the moon by 1900, succeeds in placing men on the moon and, we are left to assume, returning them safely to Earth. Wilhelmina Murray and Allan Quatermain find Kôr in Africa and bathe in the Pool of Fire and Life, making both of them immortal and rejuvenating Allan to a younger age. To conceal his mystical age change and prevent British Intelligence from finding out about the fire's regenerative abilities, they claim nothing had happened and Allan died of exposure later on, claiming the rejuvenated hunter to be his son, Allan Quatermain, Jr.. Rumors of Sherlock Holmes's continued existence circulate, though nothing is at this time substantiated. Jack Harkaway, the British traveller, dies abroad and is survived by his children and grandchildren. The beginning of the crime spree of the super-criminal known as Fantômas. Fantômas will continue to plague authorities for at least the next four decades. ("The New Traveller’s Almanac" by Alan Moore, "War of the Worlds" by H.G. Wells, "The War in the Air" by H.G. Wells, "The First Men in the Moon" by H.G. Wells, ' by H. Rider Haggard, "Jack Harkaway and His Son’s Adventures Round the World" by Bracebridge Hemyng, and the Fantômas dime novels and serialized newspaper stories created by Pierre Souvestre and Marcel Allain) Chronological Note"': The placement of the Airship Wars in "The New Traveller's Almanac" is clearly 1901, which is curious, as in the book, "The War in the Air," it is listed equally clearly that the war happened some time after 1907 - when there are monorails and two-wheeled automobiles and motorcycles as common sites throughout Europe and most of the world - considering that the world of LoEG has, seemingly, this level of technology (automobiles and primitive blimps and nations experimenting with powered flight, etc.) in 1898, Moore may have purposely moved "The War in the Air" back a few years in order to fit into the world of LoEG and to leave room for World War I.
*Summer of 1901Wilhelmina Murray and Allan Quatermain, Junior, return to England. Mina visits the Dr. Reverend Eric Bellman, the last survivor of the Bellman Expedition, and obtains a map to Snark Island for British Intelligence. ("The New Traveller’s Almanac" by Alan Moore, "The Hunting of the Snark (An Agony in 8 Fits)" by Lewis Carroll)
*1902Sherlock Holmes publicly announces his survival of the events of 1894. Allan Quatermain, Junior, and Wilhelmina Murray travel to Ireland as part of their two-year investigation of dimensional weak points throughout the British Islands. ("The New Traveller’s Almanac" by Alan Moore)
*February, 1902 - In May 1898 this was the projected complesian date of the Channel Causeway, stretching from the Cliffs of Dover to France. ("The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Volume 1" by Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill)
*1903 – Dr. John Watson begins publishing his accounts of his experiences of his work and association with Sherlock Holmes (See 1894). Arsène Lupin encounters and battles against Sherlock Holmes ("New Traveller’s Almanac" and "Arsène Lupin contre Herlock Sholmes" ("Arsene Lupin vs. Herlock Sholmes"; the name of Sherlock Holmes was changed slightly to avoid legal implications but it is generally accepted in the world of crossover fiction that this story speaks of an encounter between Arsène Lupin and Sherlock Holmes) by Maurice Leblanc) Speculation on the matter of John Watson's publication dates based on the incongruities between the generally accepted Holmesian timelines and the LoEG timeline))
*1904Wilhelmina Murray and Allan Junior travel to Sussex to investigate the mysterious "Wish House," first seeking the council or assistance of "The Beekeeper" (a retired Sherlock Holmes). Following their enquiries, they investigate the strange case of the Starkadder Apparition near Smalldene. Aeronaut Jean Robur is presumed dead after the events of his lake Eerie shenanigans. ("The New Traveller’s Almanac" by Alan Moore, "The Wish House" by Rudyard Kipling, the Sherlock Holmes stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, "Cold Comfort Farm" by Stella Gibbons, "The Master of the World" ("Maître du Monde") by Jules Verne)
*1905Doctor Omega and colleagues travel to Mars and bring back the Martian Tiziraou, a dwarfish, pumpkin-headed creature with tentacle-like arms. Tiziraou is later spotted in the Paris sewers. ("Le Docteur Oméga – Adventures Fantastiques de Trois Français dans la Planète Mars" ("Dr. Omega – Fantastic Adventures of Three Frenchmen on the Planet Mars") by Arnould Galopin, and Speculation based on an illustration by Kevin O’Neill of the Paris sewers which appears in "The New Traveller’s Almanac" by Alan Moore , Note: J.M. L'Officier Spoke directly to Kevin O'Neill about the drawing and said he put in the Martian because he liked its look "no hidden story agenda there." [http://www.comp.dit.ie/dgordon/League/OtherLeagues/1910s/1910Mysterieux.html The Mysterious Men] )

1906-1910

*1906Wilhelmina Murray and Allan Quatermain, Junior are deployed to Asia, with primary emphasis on strengthening diplomatic relations between Russia and England. The two research many interesting lands, notably that of Shangri-La, where they first encounter Orlando, who becomes a member of their now three strong League. ("New Traveller’s Almanac" by Alan Moore)
*December 28, 1906 – Second Murray League is ordered to leave Moscow for the port of Tiksi, and thereby return to England via a trans-polar investigation through the Arctic Ocean. ("New Traveller’s Almanac" by Alan Moore)
*January 3, 1907 – Second Murray League, Wilhelmina Murray, Allan Junior and Orlando, having left Tiksi, by the rented ice-breaker "The Joseph", under the captainship of Rudolf Svejk, and passed Elisee Reclus Island and Vichenbolk Land, turn northwest to encounter giant dinosaurian inhabitants from the subterranean North Pole Kingdom and, having visited the peaceful Polar Bear Kingdom, they head east toward Norway’s Svalbard islands.

*January 4-6, 1907 - Second Murray League sails past Gaster's Island, and becomes enters the Sea of Frozen Words, and sailed past Queen Island, Thule, and Hyperborea. ("The Fourth Book of the Deeds and Sayings of the Good Pantagruel" by François Rabelais, "Les Aventures du capitaine Hatteras au Pôle Nord", or "The Adventures of Captain Hatteras" by Jules Verne, "The Bibliotheca historia" or "Library of History" by Diodorus Siculus, "Geographika" or "Geography" by Strabo, "Inventorum Natura" or "Natural History" by Pliny the Elder, and "New Traveller’s Almanac" by Alan Moore)
*January 7, 1907 - Second Murray League's ice breaker "The Joseph" finds itself unable to sail farther north, due to heavy ice. ("New Traveller’s Almanac" by Alan Moore)
*January 8 to March 19, or thereabouts, 1907 - Second Murray League heads out on foot into the Back of the North Wind, freakishly warm for being so far north. This group spends what, subjectively, seems like three days, but is actually closer to three months, in the Back of the North Wind, and encounter such peoples and places as Frankenstein's Creature, Olympia, Toyland, a "forlorn and sorry chap" who lacks identification, and Noddy, and are made aware of a "bold, fearless black balloonist," who also lacks identification, before leaving. ("At the Back of the North Wind" by George MacDonald, "Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus" by Mary Shelley, "The Sand Man" from the book "Nachtstücke" or "Night-Pieces" by E.T.A. Hoffman: Speculation: the identities of the "forlorn and sorry chap... in old and faded naval uniform" and the "bold, fearless black balloonist" remain the continual vexation of LoEG fans, and has not even been clearly identified by Jess Nevins. On [http://www.geocities.com/ratmmjess/annos.html Jess Nevins' website] , it has been suggested that the forlorn naval man is in fact the captain of the "Titan", which has been established as being in LoEG canon already, and that, like the real-life "Titanic", the Titan sunk somewhere in the North Atlantic when it struck an iceberg. The "Titan" is from "" by Morgan Robertson. On Jess Nevins' [http://www.geocities.com/ratmmjess/annos.html website] , it has been postulated that the "bold, fearless black balloonist" may be Jim from "Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" by Mark Twain using the dirigible from "Tom Sawyer Abroad", also by Mark Twain, or Lee Scoresby from "Northern Lights" by Philip Pullman, or perhaps Florence Kate Upton's Golliwogg, as he was sometimes drawn as a big black balloon. Whatever the answer to these two questions, it will no doubt be sorted out in the next volume of LoEG)
*March 25, 1907 – Second Murray League arrives in the Blazing Worlds Archipelago, on their way back to Britain. ("New Traveller’s Almanac" by Alan Moore, "Observations upon Experimental Philosophy… etc." by Duchess Margaret Cavendish)
*1908 – Mr. Campion Bond publishes his memoirs, "Memoirs of an English Intelligencer". First reports of a mysterious French hero known as the Nyctalope ("The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Volume 1" by Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill, "L'Homme Qui Peut Vivre dans l'Eau" or "The Man Who Could Live Underwater" by Jean de La Hire)
*May, 1909Captain Nemo (Prince Dakkar) dies. ("The New Traveller’s Almanac" Chpt.3 pg.1 by Alan Moore). Whether this was just another deception or he was resurrected is not known, but he is said to be living in the Blazing World (in The Black Dossier). However, as time is a physical and tangible concept that affects the residents of the Blazing World in many cloudy ways, Captain Nemo could very well be dead in 1909 - yet still alive in a different time plane in the Blazing World (like being both dead in the present and alive in an ever-repeating past era, like an even more obscure kind of time loop). In addition to this, it is said that his Nautilus is in the Blazing World as well - though it is not revealed whether it's the Mark I Nautilus or the Mark II Nautilus. Also, as Captain Nemo does not greet Mina and Allan, it may be safe to assume he is still holding grudge against them for the events of Volume 2 - still erroneously believing they were aware of anthrax-based bombs.
*1909 It is sometime this year, British Intelligence speculates, that the league clone "Die Zwielichthelden" was formed. It's members, based in Berlin's Metropolis include the criminal genius Dr. Mabuse, the homicidal mesmerist Dr. Caligari, engineer Dr. Rotwang and his female automaton "Maria." The first reports of a mysterious French "supernatural detective" calling himself the "Sâr Dubnotal" ("Le Manoir Hanté de Creh'h-ar-Vran" ("The Haunted Manor of Creh'h-ar-Vran") and ("The Black Dossier", Fritz Lang's "Metropolis", Norbert Jacques' "Dr. Mabuse, Der Speigel")
*1910 – "Commencing in the later months of this year, one Miss" [Jenny] "Diver makes entries in the logbook of the Nautilus" ("The New Traveller's Almanac" by Alan Moore Chpt.3 pg.1 Also John Gay's "Beggars Opera" and Brecht's "Pirate Jenny's Song" in Three Penny Opera)

1910s

*c.1910 - Doctors Caligari and Mabuse, members of the German counterpart league "Die Zweilicht-Helden", begin their campaign of misinformation against the English and French intelligence communities. Their goal is to embroil the two in conflict, leaving themselves (and Germany) free to further their ambitions without outside interference. This sets the stage for a future confrontation between the English and French leagues. ("The Black Dossier" Chpt.2 ("The Sincerest Form of Flattery: Les Hommes Mysterieux and others (1909-1924)") by Alan Moore
*1912 - Thomas Carnacki encounters a spirit that gives him precognitive visions, portending the League's clash with Les Hommes Mysterieux in Paris and the onset of World War I. British Intelligence, swayed by artful propaganda disseminated by Die Zweilicht-Helden, supposes that France plans to provoke a world war with their Hommes Mysterieux. ("The Black Dossier" Chpt.2 ("The Sincerest Form of Flattery: Les Hommes Mysterieux and others (1909-1924)") by Alan Moore
*1912 – "The Second Murray League visits Launcelot's tomb in Northumberland before returning to London. Professor George Edward Challenger, sometime consultant to the League, explores Maple White Land, where there be dinosaurs." Whether Proff.

(Speculation based upon "His Last Bow", Story Eight: "His Last Bow" by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, in which the Prime Minister comes personally to Sherlock Holmes to recruit him to again work for British Intelligence)
*February 1913 - The Second Murray League, consisting of Wilhelmina Murray, Allan Quatermain, Junior, Orlando, and A. J. Raffles travel to France, via the agrarian republic of Caljava on the Bay of Biscay. They intend to confront Les Hommes Mysterieux and thus prevent the horrific visions of world war seen by Carnacki, who remains in Britain, laid low by fever. Their first attempt (in which they tried to recreate the air attack they had previously landed on Moriarty in Volume 1) ends in disaster when their ballon assault on Jean Robur's airship is halted more than a half-mile distant by his airborne artillery. ("The New Traveller’s Almanac", "The Black Dossier" Chpt.2 ("The Sincerest Form of Flattery: Les Hommes Mysterieux and others (1909-1924)") by Alan Moore
*March 1913 – Murray's League make their way to Paris, having survived their crash-landing in the rurals of France. They are lured to the Paris Opera on the night of the 14th by Les Hommes Mysterieux. The league's skirmish ends indecisively when the terrorist mastermind Fantomas (which Mina sees as a demon worse than Dracula) remotely detonates a large cache of explosives sequestered in the former lair of The Phantom of the Opera, collapsing a portion of the above opera house. Though the explosion and subsequent collapse cause some 200 casulties, both the english League escapes with its roster intact, while most of the french League's whereabouts remains unclear.

"The New Traveller’s Almanac" (in the world of LoEG) published by Her Majesty’s Stationery Office and is said to have been edited by a man rumoured to be a British descendant of Captain Pysse-Gummes the Pirate. ("The New Traveller’s Almanac" by Alan Moore – as a side note, Alan Moore does not put himself into "The New Traveller’s Almanac" as it's creator or otherwise, but Kevin O’Neill does draw him in as Captain Pysse-Gummes in an illustration of the Pirate’s Conference, probably as a joke)

They are summoned by Jeeves, who was present with his master, Bertie Wooster. Jeeves was alerted to the presence of the cult when his master informed him the groundskeeper, Peabody, spoke at great lengths regarding the great "Cool Lulu", the reservation of "Riley", and the city of Yuggoth, which Wooster supposed was in Massachusetts.

League Associates

These are individuals who either assist or have ambiguous ties to the League. Baron von Münchhausen has many portraits and busts and trophies in the British Museum (AKA Montagu House) which have led many fans to believe that he was a member of one of the Leagues, or a member of the body of British Intelligence which governs the League, for the purposes of this timeline supposed as The Royal Society. Orlando does encounter each of the confirmed Leagues in "The New Traveller's Almanac", and is even there depicted with the symbol of the League (a question mark) on his/her watch chain. Orlando is also a member of the 20th century League, and is one of the only three confirmed members as of "The New Traveller's Almanac". Sherlock Holmes, historically, has been tied to British Intelligence through his brother Mycroft (a member of H.M. Government), and in Vol. 1 of LoEG, is shown to have the symbol of the League on his cigarette case. In "The New Traveller's Almanac", there is a confirmed encounter between Wilhelmina and Sherlock Holmes. C. Auguste Dupin, while not a member of British Intelligence, is no less a friend of the League, as per the events of LoEG Vol. 1. William Sampson, Sr. is an original character created for LoEG, and is supposedly the farther of Bill Sampson (AKA the Wolf of Kabul), a 1920s British comic book character (who is also considered by some to be an associate of the League because of his canon association with the British Intelligence Corps). Campion Bond is also an original character created specifically for LoEG, and was originally intended to be James Bond's father, but this was never pursued due to licensing issues.

peculative Leagues

Mina’s Second League

20th Century League's Speculated Lineup

This League is a confirmed League, headed by Wilhelmina Murray and Allan Quatermain (later Allan Quatermain, Jr., with the confirmed addition of Orlando, and the suspected addition of Professor Challenger. Though Prof. Challenger was only listed as a "sometimes consultant" to this League in "The New Traveller's Almanac". The "Mr. Altamont" speculation was derived from the initials A.J. in "TNTA", who we now have learned may be A.J. Raffles the reformed "Gentleman thief" of E.W. Hornung's, and now confirmed member of this league, often described as having a Holmes type intellect. Also confirmed is the occcult detective Carnacki "the ghost finder".

Fogg’s League

Speculative 19th Century League

There has been no confirmation of this League at all, aside from the popular belief among fans of the LoEG series that the portraits of the people behind the main 19th century League on the cover of Volume 1 are in fact a past 19th Century League because they not only are all British (aside from Robur, who is therefore not considered among this League) and they all were active in their own canon around the 1870s. The picture in which this supposed League is portrayed is inside the League's headquarters in the British Museum. In this picture is even the group portrait of the 18th century League discovered in the story of Vol. 1. Also, in this picture, is the "actual" character Count Allamistakeo (a mummy), sleeping, as well as a portrait of him.

Other Groups

Les Hommes Mysterieux

The French League – Les Hommes MysterieuxLes Hommes Mysterieux is said to be the "French counterpart to the League" in "The New Traveller's Almanac". In "A Blazing World" by Jess Nevins, it is said that the roster of Les Hommes Mysterieux was based on information provided by a colleague of Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill, Jean-Marc Lofficier, a leading expert on French literature and pulp. There are two members, listed here, however, who are not confirmed members of Les Hommes Mysterieux. Doctor Omega has been rumoured to be a part of Les Hommes Mysterieux because an alien he encountered on Mars is shown in an illustration of Les Hommes Mysterieux, but Kevin O'Neill has said in conversation with J.M. Lofficier that making Doctor Omega part of Les Hommes Mysterieux was not his intent in that picture [http://www.comp.dit.ie/dgordon/League/OtherLeagues/1910s/1910Mysterieux.html] . The second unconfirmed character is The Sâr Dubnotal, who is rumoured to be a member of Les Hommes Mysterieux that has simply yet to be confirmed.
