The beginning of House of Cards starts with the inauguration of the President. How much time do each of the seasons cover?

Spoiler'ing season 3 if included would be nice, though I'm currently curious as to how far it's been from the up to the beginning of this season.

You can find a timeline of the show here if you're interested. To summarise the main points:

  • Season 1: Starts January 2013.
  • Season 3: He is sworn in on the 28th October 2014.

According to Zoe's Wiki, her date of death is November 5, 2013 - however, I can't see where this information is being populated from. I'll do some more digging and edit this answer if I can find something more substantial.

  • Impossible. Season 1 Ep. 4, 16:30, when Franc visits Russo, the latter has two children about 5-7 y.o. Russo didn't have any children even in previous episode, when he decided to quit narcotics.
