Historians consider the beginning of that period as 11100 BG, five years after the destruction of Ceres and the Age of Pretenders. Perhaps the Age of the Emperors was called like that because humanity was not united, but each planet had its own Emperor. By its name we can suppose that humanity was spread to almost 10000 planets, although the number must be a figure of speech.
The Age ended when Holtzman revealed his Holtzman Effect theories to six planetary systems, resulting in the Wars of Reunification; these in turn eventually set the stage for the Empire of Ten Thousand Worlds and the First Golden Age, two millennia later.
