Fourth Age 120
|Ages of the Children of Ilúvatar|
Fourth Age 120 (abbreviated to Fo.A. 120 or F.O. 120) is the 120th year of the Sun of the Fourth Age of Middle-earth. Unless otherwise stated, Tolkien Gateway follows Shire usage in Appendix B for reckoning Fourth Age years: Fourth Age 120 was also known as S.R. 1541 in Shire-reckoning.
Notable events in this year include:
- 1 - Death of King Elessar of the Reunited Kingdom of Gondor and Arnor. Eldarion, son of Elessar and Arwen, becomes King.
- It is said that the beds of Meriadoc and Peregrin were set beside the bed of the great king.
- Legolas builds a grey ship in Ithilien, and with Gimli sails down Anduin and so over Sea. This marks the end in Middle-earth of the Fellowship of the Ring.
