Like everyone at some point or another, I've often wondered "what happened on my birthday in The Lord of the Rings?" This, naturally, expanded into the idea that I should provide a simple way for everyone to find this information. 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:

3018 (3rd Age) - Weathertop to Rivendell

Frodo and Co. continue their journey to Rivendell

Frodo, Sam, Merry, Pippin, Aragorn, and Bill the Pony continue their journey from Weathertop to Rivendell. There is no sign of the Black Riders. They find themselves back on the right path and decide to head back to the Road despite the danger. Along the way they discover the 3 trolls that were turned to stone after being tricked by Bilbo and Gandalf in The Hobbit. They finally meet up with Glorfindel who helps heal Frodo some and puts him on his horse. They walk through the night.

  • Frodo Baggins
