I was reading The Hobbit and noticed that in the first chapter, Gandalf says, "And Thrain your father went away on the twenty-first of April, a hundred years ago last Thursday, and has never been seen by you since--"
I know these means a date in the TA can be determined, but I'm not sure what it would be.
- Thrain left for Erebor in TA 2841, a hundred years before the events of The Hobbit in TA 2941. - Gradivus, 03:33, December 22, 2012 (UTC)

Thrain the insane? Edit
I'm well aware that the picture of "Thrain II the insane in Dol Guldur" has been up on this page for a while, and I'd just like to ask: on what grounds has this conclusion been made? As far as I know, no statements have been made confirming this, and it is a scene that appears for less than a second in the trailer. What makes people so sure it's Thrain?
