Multiple terms[edit]

Place the most recent terms at the top. When both a start and an end term are given, you can instead specify the complete term using using the parameters |term=, |terms2=, etc., as is done with |term3= in the example below. This can be helpful with complicated terms that cannot be given as simple starting or ending dates, or if you prefer something other than the default term separator (an en dash, with spaces around it if the start or end is not a simple integer date).
