Fourth Age

Warning: Wikipedia contains spoilers

Fictional time period from J. R. R. Tolkien's universe of Middle-earth.

Ages: Third Age - Fourth Age - (no more ages)

The Fourth Age began after Sauron was finally defeated, when his Ruling Ring was destroyed, and the Ring Bearers[?] left Middle-earth for the Uttermost West.

The literature does not provide information on more than the first few centuries of this age, so we don't know when it ended, if it ever did.

This age was (presumably) marked by the recovery of the Númenorean kingdoms in exile (Arnor and Gondor), the final ascent of Men and the total wane of the Elves.
