    Default How old is Konoha?

    Something I have always been curious of, is the age of Konoha.

    There have only been five hokages, and the fifth was alive when her grandad(the first) was around, I think. Knowing she is fifty, and assuming he was 40-45 when he died(so that he would be around to see her), and assuming he was hokage for a while, I think we can say Konoha is 115 years old, maximum.

    However, Uchiha supposedly is descended from Hyuuga(which should take waaaaaaaaay more than a paltry 100 years), what existed before Konoha? A different village?

    Bear in mind, I am a bit behind the times, having not read any of the new arc(waiting for more chapters), and searching for "how old is konoha" is too vague. so I have no idea if this has been discussed before(probably has, if so, my bad).

    ~70 probably less than 80

    We had a time line thread before, and some one found a really good one from another site.

    Since the shodai founded the village, that would be about how old it is.

    Sunagakure also seems to be around the same age, so it doesn't really seem that odd. And the Hyuga just seemed to be around when the shodai decided to establish the village, and seeing as how Itachi referred to the clan members who established the police station as being "ancestors" there's really nothing that peculiar about the Uchiha being only around 4~5 generations old. It's not like any intermediate doujutsu between the byakugan and the sharingan, it probably just arrived there in one generation.

    Well, my real question is,m what existed before Konoha? Were the ninja wars they talked about so hard that villages came and went very quickly? Related to a greater empire that broke up? etc.

    I'm just saying also that 4-5 generations seems too short a time for one group(the Hyuuga) to give birth to a splinter group that rises to power and had at least multiple dozens of members, and have a forbidden sealed technique no one knew about pretty much(mangeyko sharingan [sp?]), all the while having enough time for the Uchiha's origins to be in doubt(afterall, they don't know that Uchiha came from Hyuuga). It just seems to short, to have arisen after the founding of the village.

    ^There's still not much information on Konaha, the Hyuuga, the Uchiha, and the other villages before and during the war and the current Naruto timeline.

    On Narutofan's Tengu theory, it can indicate the existence of the Hyuuga clan first. The Uchihas and Konoha seems not to exist yet if that theory is proven right.
    So far in the story, there's still some things that doesn't fit together {like Uchiha's existence with the Konoha foundation of the Police Squad.} The Kages, the Bijuus, the wars, the Akatsuki, and other character's flashback don't fit in the timeline either. Some of those details were simply added to enrich the manga storytelling.

    Maybe before the Leaf Village was formed, it was occupied by a bunch of small clans and then Shodai gathered them together to form a village.

    The clans were probably around before the village itself was actually founded, i dont think it went like "theres a hidden village here! lets all be ninja from now on!"

    People:

    Konoha is 48 Years old.
    Sandaime was born in 56BK, Konoha was founded in 48BK by Shodai and Nidaime

    I had a time line project a while back here on the foruns that gave with more or less precision the dades.
    All dates were based onto the firsts databooks. And I stoped since that time I had just some of the translations of the dates etc.. I might consider come back now with more info

    Btw, for all there..

    SHODAI (First hokage) Shows up and CREATE konoha, if you don't know he is the "original" Yamato.
    He have the power to create trees.. with that power he created konoha, the place could've been a desert for all we know.

    So, you are saying that the 3rd hokage is only 6 years older than the sannin, even though they are 50(now 53, right?), and it shows the 3rd as an adult teaching them when they are kids?

    yeah I'd say even with a conservative estimate Konoha is about 90 at maximum about 120 so let's call it medium at about 105.
