Fourth Age 34

From Tolkien Gateway
Year of the Sun

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

Within the Year

Other versions of the legendarium

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.
