    Might would have done

    Could you please tell me, what is the difference between "might have done and would have done"?

    I know the meaning but does it have to do anything with the incidents that happened in remote past and the incidents that have just happened, or are they interchangeable?

    I might have died but for your help.

    I think 'might' and 'would' refer to a possibility and a certainty respectively.

    Okay, so both can be used. It doesn't matter how old an incident, is it right?

    I think both can refer to the remote/recent past.
