Summary )

Favorite Quotes )

Alternate Versions

This chapter appears to have been an editorial inclusion by Christopher Tolkien, presumably to help readers keep track of the timeline (and what happened with the Sindar pre-Darkening) before plunging back into Middle-earth. The material as presented in the published Silmarillion originates entirely from the "Gray Annals". Only traces of it can be found in earlier versions.
