I have no clue about Vedic calendars but feel reasonably certain they had a 365 day year with approprate intercalary days to resync with the vernal equinox.

I would have to guess (and it is just a guess) that the complier would use whatever calendar was in use at his location and time for the relatively recent Kings. Maybe even converting from the foreign dates to his. But sooner or later the conversions would start to fall apart.
Then all you really have is a list of who followed who unless you can tie them together with a agreed upon occurrence. (Comet sighting, etc)
Another possibility, is the lists had impossibly long rules in order to give the appearance of antiquity to a particular ethnocultural group. This established legitimacy in a region and gave them land rights.
Who are the Fundies?

After the flood those “waters” were gone and we were exposed to these life shortening things.
This is a real common problem when we look at something outside our realm of experience. We cannot relate and so we discount it.
For the last few thousand years men haven’t lived to be over 100 years old. So when confronted by accounts otherwise, we just dismiss them.
Are the Fundies right? I don’t know. But I haven’t seen any evidence that their claims could not be true.

But he wakes up early and wants to watch "Mickey Mouse" which I satisfy by putting on a 2 hr. CD.
