Revision as of 12:42, 3 July 2012 by Sage (Talk | contribs)

The Long Peace is a term referring to the extended peace in Beleriand in the First Age during which Morgoth did not try to break the Siege of Angband. It began when Glaurung was defeated in the First Age year 260 and ended with the Dagor Bragollach in 455 – lasting some 195 years.

During this period the Elven peoples in north west Middle-earth prospered. It was also during the Long Peace that the Edain passed into Beleriand from the east.
