Second Age 863 (abbreviated to S.A. 863) is the 863rd year of the Sun of the Second Age of Middle-earth.

Notable events in this year include:

Víressë[edit | edit source]

  • Aldarion departs on a six year long voyage to Middle-earth with three ships. The voyage takes longer than planned, because the haven of Vinyalondë had been totally ruined by great seas and when he wants to return home the ships are twice blown off course far to the north from a great wind coming from the south.[1]
