Duncan's Timeline
Duncan MacLeod was born in the Scottish Highlands in the year 1592. This section of the site provides a history of his life based on what we've been shown in all six seasons of the series and the subsequent Highlander: Endgame movie. It also includes a section on flashbacks involving other characters that occur before Duncan's birth.
