Generally a chronicle (Latin: chronica, from Greek χρονικά, from χρόνος, chronos, "time") is a historical account of facts and events ranged in chronological order, as in a time line. Typically, equal weight is given for historically important events and local events, the purpose being the recording of events that occurred, seen from the perspective of the chronicler. This is in contrast to a narrative or history, which sets selected events in a meaningful interpretive context and excludes those the author does not see as important.

“She that was ever fair, and never proud,
Had tongue at will, and yet was never loud
She that could think, and neer disclose her mind,
See suitors following, and not look behind.
She was a wight, if ever such wight were
To suckle fools and chronicle small beer.”
