Do we know when Maglor wrote Noldolante? The fact that he is the only survivor of the Feanorians and that he has seen the loss of the Silmarils, a plausible 'date' is after all Silmarilli were lost. Noldolante also seems to express some repentance, about crimes which eventually led to failure. Only after losing the Silmaril Maglor appears to have repented. Sage 13:07, 29 June 2011 (UTC)

I don't think we know anything beyond it's mere existence. He could have started writing it when he arrived in Beleriand, so really, we can't know anything. --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits)
