Fourth Age 34 (abbreviated to Fo.A. 34 or F.O.) is the 34th 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 34 was also known as S.R. 1455 in Shire-reckoning.

Notable events in this year include:

Mid-year's Day[edit | edit source]

Within the Year[edit | edit source]

Other versions of the legendarium[edit | edit source]

In earlier editions of The Lord of the Rings, Appendix B gives this as the year when Fastred of Greenholm became Warden of Westmarch and relocated to the Undertowers. In the 50th Anniversary Edition this event happened in S.R. 1462.
