The Kinslaying at Alqualondë:
The first evil of the Oath of Fëanor, and a major cause of
the eventual Doom of the Noldor.
When the Teleri wouldn't join Fëanor or give him their ships, Fëanor
led the host of the Noldor to attack the Teleri and steal the ships. Many of
the Teleri were slain and as a result wouldn't join the Vanyar in the Great
battle, though they were persuaded to sail the ships to Middle-Earth, not one
of the Teleri set foot on land.

The civil war in Gondor between the years 1432 and 1448 of the
Third Age, it was fought over favours shown to the Northmen and
the fear that it was weakening the Dúnedain blood and shortening
their lifespan. The King had to flee Gondor, but ten years later
returned with an army and retook his country. The surviving rebels
fled to Umbar, where they caused trouble until the time of the
War of the Ring.
