The Chronicle of Arda
Welcome to The Chronicle of Arda. This section of the site provides automated annals
for all four Ages of the Sun and Moon. For any period of Arda's history, the
Chronicle will display the events that happened in that time. Events and characters are entered into the
Chronicle as they are added to the main database: like the rest of The Encyclopedia of Arda this section of
the site is expanding all the time.
For years after III 1601 (the year of the foundation of Shire, and therefore Shire Year 1), the Chronicle will also show years by the Shire-reckoning in a second column.
You can have the Chronicle look up events for specific dates by entering one or two years in the form below.
If you enter two dates, the Chronicle will display events that happened between those two years.
If you leave one of the dates blank, the Chronicle will display events in the century around the single year you specify.
