A tip, if you will... it is common among Middle Earth aficionados to include the age when using dates.

Also, if you wish to delve deeper into Thorin's genealogy and the greater background occurring behind the dates given above, "The Silmarillion" goes back beyond the time of the creation of the dwarrows by Aule.


Thanks Luthien for commenting. Have just bought a copy of the Silmarillion. Will also add the Ages. This post was written almost a year ago, so I hadn't emersed myself in Middle Earth as much as I have now :). Must revise some of these posts.

About this blog

  • Actor Richard Armitage has been cast as Thorin Oakenshield in Peter Jackson's The Hobbit Movies. This blog aims to explore the stories about Tolkien's dwarves and any other material that may be related to The Hobbit. I have been a long time follower of Richard Armitage's work and have also developed a great love and appreciation of Tolkien's writings. I was captivated by Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings movies and will wait with great anticipation to see how he can bring "The Hobbit" to life for audiences.
