Humans constantly create narratives to provide explanations for how and why something happens. Designing systems able to build such narratives would therefore contribute to building more human- centric systems, and to support uses like decision-making processes. Here, a narrative is seen as a sequence of events. My thesis investigates how a narrative can be built computationally. Four research questions are identified: representation, construction, link prediction and evaluation. A case study on the French Revolution, based upon Wikidata and Wikipedia is presented. This prototype helps identifying the first challenges such as dynamic representation and evaluation of a narrative.
