Like everyone at some point or another, I've often wondered "what happened on my birthday in The Lord of the Rings?"

Currently, I only have data from 9/20 to 3/2 loaded, but hopefully I'll get to the rest eventually. If you notice any errors, let me know!

Today in The Lord of the Rings:

Gandalf is rescued from Orthanc

Gandalf is rescued from Orthanc by Gwaithir.

These major characters were present

In the calendar of the Shire, there are 12 months each with 30 days, so there will be no results for the 31st of any month, and February will have entries on the 29th and 30th.
