Fourth Age 61
Fourth Age 61 (abbreviated to Fo.A. 61 or F.O. 61) is the 61st year of the Sun of the Fourth Age of Middle-earth. Unless otherwise stated, Tolkien Gateway follows Shire usage in Appendix B for reckoning Fourth Age years: Fourth Age 61 was also known as S.R. 1482 in Shire-reckoning.
Notable events in this year include:
- Samwise comes to the Tower Hills and gives the Red Book of Westmarch to Elanor. Samwise passes over the Sea to West, last of the Ring-bearers.
