Second Age 700

(Redirected from II 700)

[edit] In Other Versions of the Legendarium

In the Unfinished Tales it is stated that "Celeborn and Galadriel therefore went eastwards, about the year 700 of the Second Age, and established the (primarily but by no means solely) Noldorin realm of Eregion."[3] This contradicts the information published in The Lord of the Rings which gives the founding of Eregion in the year 750.[4] It is possible to reconcile the texts if 700 is seen as the year of their moving eastwards with 750 as the year of the foundation of Eregion; the canonicity of this, however, is unknown.
