Fourth Age 55

Revision as of 00:56, 3 September 2012 by Gamling (Talk | contribs)

Mid-year's Day

Note

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.[2] Since mayoral elections in the Shire occurred on Mid-year's Day after 25 March, Sam's re-election as mayor is definitely in Fourth Age 56.
