Fourth Age 1 began, in the reckoning of Gondor, on 25 March.[1] The entries for this year, starting with 25 March, are repeated from Third Age 3021 to note the transition (the months and dates shown still correspond to the Shire Calendar).

All entries without a footnote come from Appendix B, the Third Age, "The Chief Days from the Fall of the Barad-dur to the end of the Third Age".
