A Valian year is a reference to the passage of time in Valinor, before the Two Trees were destroyed by Melkor and Ungoliant. Valian years ended with the rising of the Sun during the First Age. There are approximately 9.582 solar years in a Valian year, and 14,325 solar years in the Years of the Trees.
