Fourth Age 15
Fourth Age 15 (abbreviated to Fo.A. 15 or F.O. 15) is the 15th 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 15 was also known as S.R. 1436 in Shire-reckoning.
Notable events in this year include:
- King Elessar rides north and dwells for a while in Annúminas by Lake Evendim. He comes to the Brandywine Bridge, and there greets his friends. He gives the Star of the Dúnedain to Master Samwise, and Elanor is made a maid of honour to Queen Arwen.
- Birth of Bilbo Gardner, tenth child and fifth son of Samwise Gamgee and Rose Cotton.
- Death of Glóin.
