Not like we could possibly know, but it would bring up a lot more theories on the state of affairs in their world. There could be more than four Arkentools, yet they just haven't been discovered because the world is so new... Or perhaps their world is so old that other Arkentools have drifted from one dying empire to the next, until all knowledge of them died out. Yeah, lots of questions.
Went through the wiki to see if anything and we have a minimum age: 415 turns. Don was 15 turns old when he assumed the throne and has been ruling for at least 400 according to LIAB Text Update 005. So by our terms, a year and 50 days.
Duncan Scone's Laurel of Napster was made "thousands of turns ago". It's a safe bet that Erfworld's at least 5000 turns old.
