Now consider, Just before the time skip, Aka' have a meeting where they state that Oro' had left them 7 years earlier.
Oro' says himself that left because Itachi was too strong. In the flashback of the Itachi v Oro' battle Itachi is already in an Aka' robe.
This would mean that Itachi was an active member 7 years prior to the break.
If the break was at 13AK, 13-7=6AK. Before the Uchiha massacre at 8AK. Itachi would have been 11 when he joined Aka'. 2 years before the Uchiha Coup'. Could Madara have been Itachis teacher from 11 or earlier? Is this why Itachi was such a genius, and knew so many clan secrets? If Madara was hanging around for 2 years, Could Madara have planted the idea of the Coup'?
What do you think?
Some facts in the Timeline have been disputed but, not the ones I need here.
This is not my theory either, just putting it out there
alternative title:KISHI"S TIMELINE TROUBLE
How can the picture of Itachi v Oro' be of an 11 year old Itachi? He's meant to be younger than Naruto and the others at the beginning of part 1
Though, Itachi was always mature for his age.
