First Age 272
From Tolkien Gateway
Notable events in this year include:
- The figure of F.A. 272 is the most recent date that Tolkien gave for Finduilas' year of birth in Beleriand. In the same complex of texts in which this figure appears, Tolkien later decided that Finduilas was the youngest of the Exiled Noldor (thus born in Aman) - however, years later (c. 1965), Tolkien decided to make Finduilas the sister of Gil-galad, born to Orodreth and an unnamed Sindarin lady: thus placing her birth in Beleriand once again, hence the adoption of the F.A. 272 date.
