For many events in the [[Fourth Age]] only the year is known and that year is recorded according to the [[Shire Calendar]], in which the first day of the year was 2 Yule.<ref>{{App|Shire}}</ref>  In the reckoning [[Gondor]], Fourth Age years began on the first day of the month of [[Víressë]], which corresponded to [[25 March]] in the Shire Calendar.<ref>{{App|Calendars}}</ref>  Thus any event with only a [[Shire Reckoning]] year recorded may have occurred in the first 86 days of the year (2 Yule through 24 March) and thus belonged to the year before (by Gondorian reckoning).  Those events with only a Shire Reckoning year known have the S.R. year shown in parentheses.
