His age is never given, however the novelization of the film implies that Jareth has been the Goblin King for a long time and overtly states that he is concerned by signs he is aging such as frown-lines and wrinkles. ''Return to Labyrinth'' states that Jareth was Goblin King for 1300 years, implying that he is either immortal or very long lived. This, however, is contradicted by the prequel comic series Labyrinth: Coronation, which depicts how Jareth became Goblin King in the 1700s, making him roughly 300 years old.

Contradicting the novelizations' references to Jareth's fear of aging, Jareth appears eternally youthful in the ''Return to Labyrinth'' series.
