In what year was Sauron taken to Númenor as a prisoner Question Smilie
In the year 3262
Correct Mellon; though you might of added SA for second age. Still that's all it can be, for the third age didn't go that high and didn't start until another 179 years had passed. Mellon gets the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

The passage of Moranon? The entrance to Udun..Mordor..
