{{Age}} returns the number of full years between two specified dates. If the second set of parameters is not included, it will return the number of full years between a specified date and today's date.

Usage

{{Age|''year''|''month''|''day''|''year2''|''month2''|''day2''}}

or

{{Age|''year''|''month''|''day''}}
Examples
{{Age|1989|7|23|2003|7|14}}

returns 13

{{Age|1989|7|23}}

returns 30

When using this template to calculate a person's age at death or a person's age on a specified date (rather than the person's current age), please substitute it into the page (see Help:Substitution).

{{Age|1989|7|23|2003|7|14}}

When entering dates before the Common Era, use astronomical year numbering: 1 BCE is represented by 0, 2 BCE by -1, 3 BCE by -2 etc. For example, the following expression returns the number of full years elapsed since the battle of Cannae, which took place on August 2, 216 BCE:

{{Age|-215|8|2}}

returns 2234

(BCE is exactly the same as BC, so August 2, 216 BCE is also August 2, 216 BC)
