Era of Solitude
”The Voidbringers were cast back into the Tranquiline Halls. The Heralds followed to force them out of heaven as well, and Roshar’s Heraldic Epochs ended. Mankind entered the Era of Solitude. The modern era.
The Era of Solitude is the name given to the four thousand year period following the Heraldic Epochs.
The Silver Kingdoms existed from some time shortly after Aharietiam until likely just after the Day of Recreance. The Knights Radiant supported a unified kingdom across the land connecting everyone via Urithiru, with Alethela being the center of protection for all of the Kingdoms. After the fall of the Knights, and with Urithiru abandoned (leaving each kingdom isolated) they would no longer be able to function as they had.
The Era of Solitude began after the Last Desolation known as Aharietiam. After being told that the Voidbringers had been defeated by the remaining Heralds, mankind began rebuilding for the first time in years.
