Second Age 521

Revision as of 19:08, 14 September 2012 by Gamling (Talk | contribs)


  1. Silmariën's birth-year was originally stated as 548 in "The Tale of Years"; Christopher Tolkien stated "I think it very likely that this should have been revised but escaped notice." This error has since been corrected to 521 in the 50th Anniversary Edition of the The Lord of the Rings.
