Kratosthe God of War protagonist of God of War, is one of the most famous and recognized icons of video games. The return of the character in the Norse saga did nothing but increase her popularity: but how old is Kratos actually?
It is not possible to define exactly when Kratos was born, as in the series of Santa Monica Studios there are not many time references to use to determine the age of the character. However, in the final chapter of the original God of War trilogy (in this regard, here are how many God of War games exist) we are told about the fall of Sparta, historically collocated in 464AC.
We can compare this date with that of the Fimbulwinter narrated in the Edda, the winter that precedes Ragnarok, which is associated with a real drop in temperatures in northern Europe in 535DC, due to the eruption of an unidentified volcano. It turns out that Kratos should be over 1000 years old during the events experienced with his son Atreusconsidering the young age of the Spartan during the extermination of the Greek gods.
A considerable age, but which must obviously be related to the divine nature of Ghost of Sparta. During his long years Kratos has seen all the colors, but a fundamental stage of his journey is still missing, which will be told in God of War Ragnarok. Speaking of which, here’s who Freya from God of War Ragnarok is.
