'''The History of the Akallabêth''' is the fifth chapter from the ''[[The Peoples of Middle-earth]]'' volume, part of ''[[The History of Middle-earth]]'' series. Whereas the other nine chapters of Part One of this book describe the histories of writing of [[The Prologue]] and the [[Appendices]] to ''[[The Lord of the Rings]]'', this one chapter details how this section of ''[[The Silmarillion]]'' came into being. [[Christopher Tolkien]] justified this arrangement by noting that the Tale of Years for the [[Second Age]] was clearly linked to the evolution of the history of [[Númenor]] and its downfall.<ref name=Akallabeth>{{PM|Akallabeth}}</ref>{{rp|140}}
