Timeline of Arda

The Second Age is a fictional time period from J. R. R. Tolkien's universe of Middle-earth.

The Second Age began after the banishment of Morgoth into the Void by the Lords of the West led by E÷nwŰ the Herald of ManwŰ.

It lasted for 3441 years, and ended with the downfall of Sauron, when he was defeated by the Last Alliance of Elves and Men following the downfall of N˙menor.

This age was characterized by the rise (eventually with increased insolence) of N˙menor, the rise of Sauron in Middle-earth (and the creation of the Ringwraiths), and the early wars of the Rings between Sauron and the Elves.

Encyclopedia of Arda: Second Age (409 words)
Beginning in about the 584th year since the Return of the Noldor to Middle-earth, the Second Age is the longest of the chronicled Ages.
The Second Age was the Age of Númenor; the great island kingdom was created and peopled by the descendants of the Edain in the first years of the Age, and as the years passed, their power grew until it surpassed that of any nation of Men, before or since.
The end of Númenor was not the end of the Second Age, though; a remnant of the Númenoreans led by Elendil escaped its wreck and founded kingdoms in Middle-earth: Arnor in the north and Gondor in the south.
