Notes

  1. The date of birth for Ulfang is an extrapolation based on the fact that the First Age dates on Tolkien Gateway, once the Years of the Sun began, are primarily based on The Grey Annals - which themselves are in turn based on The Earliest Annals of Beleriand: and they in turn were moved forward 300 years into the future during their making (i.e. dates such as 'year 195' in The Earliest Annals became 'year 495' in The Grey Annals).
