    This is a very sketchy Timeline. I don't claim to be exact, I never know how to convert from Calendars [the Year Zero bug :-)].

    The Standard References should be:

    The Day March 13 of the Years Shire Reckoning 1421, Third Age 3021, and Fourth Age 1 are the same

    The Day March 1st of the Years Shire Reckoning 1541, and Fourth Age 120 are the same
