Valian Years

In Reply To
Each Valian Year was 9,582 solar years long? Are you messing with me? If you are not, how many of these Valian Years were there? So Galadriel would have lived for tens of thousands of years before coming to Middle Earth? Time must have been different for the Valor during these Valian years.

By the Valar, no! A Valian year was approximately 9.582 solar years long. Nine point five eight two. I'll defer to Tolkien Gateway:

A Valian year is a reference to the passage of time in Valinor, before the Two Trees were destroyed by Melkor and Ungoliant. Valian years ended with the rising of the Sun during the First Age. There are approximately 9.582 solar years in a Valian year, and 14,325 solar years in the Years of the Trees.

By this reckoning, the Years of the Trees lasted for approximately 1,500.2 Valian years.
