Guild of Weaponsmiths

The weaponsmiths of Númenor

Encyclopedia of Arda Timeline
Years of the Trees First Age Second Age Third Age Fourth Age and Beyond

A guild of Númenor, originally formed simply to preserve the art, whose importance grew as Númenor extended its influence into Middle-earth.



We don't know precisely when the Guild was formed, but it was evidently early in Númenor's history (Númenor itself was founded in II 32, hence the date shown here as the earliest possible). The timeline above assumes that the Guild persisted throughout the entire history of Númenor, and while this seems likely (the Númenóreans became more warlike as time went by) it is not established with certainty.
