The Hobbit begins in the year 2941 and ends in 2942. The Lord of the Rings picks up 60 years later with Bilbo’s party in 3001, but then there’s a time skip of 17 years between Bilbo leaving the Shire and Frodo beginning his quest, meaning the bulk of the Lord of the Rings is set in 3018, some 77 years after The Hobbit.Dec 30, 2020
Without getting into too many details (because, in Tolkien’s world, there are details for the details), Aragorn was exactly 10 years old during the events of The Hobbit.Sep 14, 2016
Assuming Peter honored the dates established by the novels, there was a 17 year gap in Fellowship between Bilbo and Frodo leaving the Shire.
The Ring is destroyed on March 25, so just about 6 months after setting out, but that also includes almost 4 months of non-traveling in Rivendell and Lothlorien. Aragorn’s coronation is in May and his wedding to Arwen is on Mid-year’s day. Shortly after that the return journey begins.

So, yes, Gandalf is aware at the very least shortly after The Hobbit that Bilbo has the Ring; however, he does not ascertain its true nature until much, much later.
The Hobbit is a trilogy, not a single movie and this is also the case with the LotR. The latter was made first but the former takes places earlier chronologically. However, watching the Hobbit trilogy is not “required” to enjoy or understand the LotR trilogy. Hence, the short answer is it doesn’t matter.
J.R.R. Tolkien wrote that the later Ages lasted about 3,000 years, though this duration was not fixed, and he felt that the Ages ‘sped up’ over time. Each ended following the completion of some major historical event.
Fictional biography. Samwise Gamgee was Frodo Baggins’s gardener, having inherited the position from his father, Hamfast “Gaffer” Gamgee, who was Bilbo Baggins’s gardener. … At the Council of Elrond there, Sam joined the Fellowship of the Ring.
The name Frodo is a boy’s name. An admirable meaning, with roots in a Germanic word meaning wisdom, but we fear it will never be detached from the hobbit hero of The Lord of the Rings.
Thranduil’s wife’s name is Êlúriel. She was given the name Nenluin by Thranduil because her eyes reminded him of water and he mentioned he “drowns in them”. So you will see her name often written as Êlúriel Nenluin on occasion.
Thranduil’s wife being killed is purely a movie-verse thing. She is never mentioned in any of the books. She might be alive and well for all we know. Just because Bilbo didn’t mention her in his memoir does not mean she was dead.
Bilbo had a strong nature, and he only used the Ring sparingly. He didn’t understand what the Ring was. He wasn’t quite like Gandalf who avoided the Ring because he knew he would first want to use it for good.
Why does the One Ring make you invisible? … The Ring itself doesn’t just make its bearers invisible – it brings them halfway into the world of wraiths and spirits. The ring bearers had no power over the ring (like Sauron had) and therefore they could not make themselves visible whilst wearing it.
40 years (January 28, 1981)
Frodo was 33 years old. But Hobbits live to 100 years on average; so by going by an average human lifespan of 70 years, Frodo would be about 23 in human years.
The Dunedain are the decscendants of the Numenoreans who came East to Middle-Earth with Elendil and his sons. The Numenoreans were Men who were gifted longer life by the Valar as a reward for aiding them in the war against Morgoth. The longer lifespan was passed down from parents to children.
Aragorn is Dunedain and was never marked as Half-Elven. Despite his close contact with the Elves, he never had the option of whether or not to choose the Fate of the Elves or the Gift of Man and he was always doomed to die eventually.
Originally Answered: Is Sauron an elf? No Sauron is not an elf, elves are the firstborn children of iluvatar but Sauron is a maia an angelic being that has existed before the universe was even created. He’s a divine spirit that existed long before the creation of Eä but turned to evil when Morgoth corrupted him.
The Hobbit, honestly, is only for hardcore fans of Tolkien. It is for people who are more interested in the Tolkien mythology as a whole than the stories of LotR or The Hobbit. The films are enjoyable and the characters are well developed. The settings are great and (most) of the effects are good.
