  • This article includes several chronologies relating to J. R. R. Tolkien's legendarium. In Tolkien's cosmology, Arda (the Earth) is at first created without the Sun and Moon to illumine it, and its earliest history is measured in Valian Years (V.Y.).After the creation of the Trees of the Valar, a new tally of Years of the Trees is begun in V.Y. 3501.At about V.Y. 4550, the First Age of the Children of Ilúvatar begins with the Awakening of the Elves. The Years of the Sun begin with the Awakening of Men in about V.Y. 5000. From this time, the First Age lasts for another 590 years.The Second Age extends to 3441 years, beginning with the foundation of Mithlond (the Grey Havens) under Círdan, and Lindon as the Noldorin Kingdom under Gil-galad, and ending with the defeat of Sauron at the hands of the Last Alliance of Elves and Men.The Third Age extends to 3021 years, ending with the final defeat of Sauron in the War of the Ring and the establishment of the Reunited Kingdom of Arnor and Gondor.The Fourth Age is mainly outside the scope of Tolkien's legendarium, beginning the suggested transition to the historical period, but Tolkien gives a summary of the first two centuries of the Fourth Age. Timeline entries are based on The Annals of Aman (published 1993) and The Grey Annals (published 1994) and Appendix B of The Lord of the Rings (published 1955) unless otherwise noted. (en)
