A king there was in days of old:
ere Men yet walked upon the mould
his power was reared in cavern's shade,
his hand was over glen and glade,
and then the dragons came.
-The Lay of Leithian

Lo! the golden dragon / of the God of Hell,
the gloom of the woods / of the world now gone,
the woes of Men, / and the weeping of Elves
fading faintly / down forest pathways,
is now to tell / and the murders begin.
- The Lay of the Children of Hurin

(Ouch.)

"On a March day in 1891 the steamer Roslin Castle left dock to sail from England to the Cape. Standing on the stern deck, waving to the family she would not see again for a long time, was a slim good-looking girl of twenty-one. Mabel Suffield was going to South Africa to marry Arthur Tolkien, and then the dragons arrived." - J.R.R. Tolkien: A Biography

"Towards the end of his life, J.R.R. Tolkien was deprived for a few weeks of the use of his right arm, and then the murders began." - Letters of J.R.R. Tolkien.

(This sounds legit.)
