The Lord of the Rings has a lot of characters in the world. In this article, we’re explaining how old all these characters are or at least the most popular ones. We sorted their age from oldest to youngest. How long it takes to navigate through Middle-Earths lore is so difficult that we have prepared this guide, in which we also sorted the titles of the Lord of the Rings by their race.
In the table we’ll show you how old these characters are in The Lord of the Rings, and under it we’ll explain when they’re born and how old they are.

I am just a bit older than the Lord of the Rings! What I mean better than the older Middle Earth characters, because they are mostly unknown age.
How old are the Characters in The Lord of the Rings?
Originally known as Smeagol, later called Gollum because of a disgusting horrible sound he began to make in his throat. It was estimated that he was born around 2430. He died aged thirty in March of the third age.
His life exceeded his natural limits by the influence of a single ring. At the time of his death, Gollum was about 589 years old. It was an odd age for a creature who was once Hobbit-like, but was ruined, sabotage and twisted by the flood of the Ring.
The full name of the brand was Arwen Undomiel. In the story of Aragorn and Arwen, Aragorn met Arwen in his 20th year at Rivendell where he lived under Elronds protection. Arwen, then over 2,700 years old, recently returned to her father’s home after living in Lothlorien with the grandmother of her grandmother Lady Galadriel.
The tale of Arwen and Aragorn says that Arwen and Aragorn had two sons, Eldarion, and at least two unnamed daughters. One year after the death of Aragorn, Arwen dies at 2 901 years old.
In the official movie guide for The Lord of the Rings, a birthdate for Legolas is set to TA87. He would be 2931 at the time of the Rings.
In the film, though that is the reason that Tolkien didn’t tell the old age of Legolas, but once he hints at how many times it is since he was in the background. In thinking about the building of Meduseld in Edoras, Legolas said, nearly all the red leaves have fallen in my home since then. But as you see it in a few hours, the red leaves seem to us. If he really thinks of fifty years for a while, then he would appear to be several thousand.
Tolkien doesn’t specificly tell Legolas age, but many have used what to tell hazard an explanation. There are no dates for Legolas when the deadline for TA 3018 is 3018. That Legolas was probably born after Oropher moved his grandfather into the Misty Mountains, so in the book that he called the Noldor elves a strange race.

At least the 5000th, this would bring birthdates to the second largest part of the Second Age, at the earliest. Legolas is not mentioned in any account of the Last Alliance of Elves and Men, so most assume that he was born in the Third Age after his death in the world.
Legolas hasn’t been to Lorien before he travels with the Fellowship. Thus, we can assume that he wasn’t with his grandfathers when they left Lorien for Northern Mirkwood. Before the Shadow of Dol Guldur died from the devastating effects of the earthquake of the TA 1000, Legolas people spent their lives together in Lorien. B
despite the darkness tearing out, the Shadow gradually spread on a forestside and laid up a fortress and great rooms where the fortress was buried. In other words, Legolas’ birth date was after TA 1000 when the Kingdom of Northern Mirkwood was created.
He would be younger than anyone else in the series, including Arwen. Legolas often refers to his traveling companions as children in the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. Nevertheless, when he came to Fangorn, he complained that his recollection of the countryside would seem young. He said, “She was older, very old.” So old that I almost feel young again, because I had no time to see you since I went to the office with my kids.
It is hard to tell that.
Elrond was an Earendil and Elwing son, and the great-grandfather of Luthien, born in Beleriand in the First Age, and now with the experience of the Lord of the Rings, he was a lot older than 6,000. Elronds twin brother was Elros Tar-Minyatur, the first High King of Numenor.
Elrond was born in the year 532. In the first years, there were 590. 590 532= 58. Elrond was 58 when Morgoth lost to him. The two ages stayed together for 6460 years. 6460 + 58 = 6518. Elron was crowned champion for the last time in the last half of 1963.
There is a lot, but one year or so later, here or there.
The stories of Years in the War of the Jules are at least from The Tale of Years and the War of the Jules.
Since Elros passed away in 442 (at 500), the 2nd Age that had ceased to enact 3441, now is 3499, plus the additional 3018 years from the beginning of Frodos wanderings and gives him 6517 years by the beginning of 3018 T.A.
How old is Galadriel? Yeah, she’s 1362. An average of three hundred years have been planted. Galadriel lived through 138 years of the forest life. The trees have a lifespan of ninety-twoty five years. 138×9.582 = 322.316. We could just go back to 1322. All the First, Second and Third Ages make a total of seven 050 years. 7.050 + 1322 makes 8372.
The final defeat of Saurons took place after Galadriel was 8372 years.
That’s the first time they wrote the Annals of Aman in the 1950s. Among the Trees, it’s a conversion factor of 9.8982 solar years. She was born in 1362 years old.
There’s a lot of older Elves than Galadriel, but as we mentioned earlier, we’re putting only the more famous here. Here’s what the oldest Elf has in the Rings.
Gandalf olorin Age:
How old is Gandalf in Lords of the Rings? The question is basically no answer. Gandalf or – of course – Olorin is a predator of the world’s creation, and even the creation of the universe. He existed before it was done, and for most of his life (probably most of his life), he was no longer alive with time.
We can only say that He’s so old that it’s impossible to say how old he is. The age of two thousand, the age of eight is a myth: old-fashioned era is so old that the age of two thousand o’clock remained in his present place. Only those that are around the same age as Gandalf are Sauron, Morgoth, and Eru Iluvatar. In the Silmarillion, the all of the Ainur are about the same age as Gandalf.

Gandalf is older than time itself. This is impressive, but not really unique in Tolkiens. As I said, all the Ainur (we don’t know how many of them there are, but that’s probably one in ten) are as old as Gandalf.
If we talk about how old he’s in middle Earth and his age as a Gandalf, the answer’s 2,000 years.
Saruman (Curumo), Radagast (Aiwendil), Alatar and Pallando, Balrog Age.
All these character names, as well as Gandalf (Olorin) are Ainars, also known as the Holy Ones. They were the first and best of the past centuries created by Eru Iluvatar before the world began.
You can’t really determine your age, just like Gandalf.
There was Eru, the one who, in Arda, translates to Iluvatar; and he made first the Ainur, the Holy Ones, that was the offspring of his thought.
First words from Ainulindale.
Eru was transcendent, completely outside the world and whole beyond. He created a group of angelic beings called Elvish the Ainur, and these holy spirits were co-actors in the creation of Arda by holy music and chanting called the Music of the Ainur. He’s famously the All-Powerful, and he is capable of creating a real existence without leaving the Flame to the thyle.
