Renarin is canonically given two ages in The Way of Kings, both 19 and 20. It is possible that he had a birthday between the two dates (in which case, Happy Canon Birthday, Renarin). The reference to twenty years comes after the ninteen years. How do we want to handle the dating of his year of birth in light of this?

Adolin knew that his brother— now nineteen years old— felt out of place.

I still think of him as “the boy,” Dalinar thought. Even though he’s now in his twentieth year. Wit had been right. Dalinar underestimated Renarin.

—WoK, Ch. 18
Dalinar doesn't actually say Renarin is 20 years old though. When you're 3 months old, you're in your first year. Similarly when you're 19 years 3 months old, you are in your 20th year. So I think we should accept Renarin is 19 years old.--Cem (talk) 12:07, 3 November 2013 (UTC)
I'm going to agree with Cem. --Joe ST (talk) 12:36, 3 November 2013 (UTC)


It's a good article, sure, but the "history" section is entirely missing. Isn't it a bit premature to make this exemplary?--Cem (talk) 07:35, 7 January 2014 (UTC)
