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:

3019 (3rd Age) - Rauros to Fangorn

The Orcs carry Merry and Pippin away from Rauros

Merry and Pippin run, or are carried, towards Isengard. The memory of the day is black and shrouded in their memory.

These major characters were present

  • Meriodic Brandybuck
  • Peregrin Took

3019 (3rd Age) - Rauros to Fangorn

Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli run after Merry, Pippin, and the Orcs

After running through the night Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli rest just before dawn. When they continue they fiind five dead Orcs along the trail, and catch sight of an Eagle heading back north. Eventually they see the Orcs running in the distance, Aragorn finds the dropped brooch, and they stop to rest.

These major characters were present

  • Aragorn
  • Legolas
  • Gimili son of Gloin

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.
