Epilogue: The Company of the Ring
If you haven’t had the opportunity to read the last section of Appendix B: The Tale of Years, Chronology of the Westlands, then you haven’t fully read The Lord of the Rings.
“Later Events concerning the members of the Fellowship of the Ring.”
For me the last entries in Appendix B: The Tale of Years is an essential part of The Lord of the Rings and I always conclude my reading of the trilogy with this passage from the books.
In it you will discover a chronology of years in the Fourth Age, detailing what happens to each member of the Fellowship remaining in Middle-earth. Oddly enough I find it just as moving as the rest of Tolkien’s writings.
If you haven’t had time to read it, check out this video by Yoystan from Men of the West, who offers a video epilogue chronicling these events.
