Revision as of 11:06, 17 February 2008 by Ederchil
- Last meeting of the White Council. They debate the Rings of Power. Saruman feigns that he has discovered that the One Ring has passed down Anduin to the Sea. Saruman withdraws to Isengard, which he takes as his own, and fortifies it. Being jealous and afraid of Gandalf he sets spies to watch all his movements; and notes his interest in the Shire. He soon begins to keep agents in Bree and the Southfarthing.
- Turgon, Steward of Gondor, dies. Ecthelion II takes over his father's office.
- Fengel, King of Rohan, dies. Thengel assumes the throne.
