Fourth Age 63 (abbreviated to Fo.A. 63 or F.O. 63) is the 63rd 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 63 was also known as S.R. 1484 in Shire-reckoning.

Notable events in this year include:




  1. Éomer's death is given as S.R. 1484 in the Appendix B and "F.A. 63 ([Third Age] 3084)" in the Appendix A, therefore while these events happened in S.R. 1484 aka F.A. 63 of the Shire, they correspond to Fourth Age 64 (Third Age 3084) by the reckoning of Gondor. Note that while in the Shire Calendar the year begins in midwinter, in the Calendar of Gondor it begins almost 2 months later.
