From the movie Thor, we know that Loki was born c. AD 965 as that is when Odin found him abandoned on Jotunheim. Thor is a few years older than his brother, probably not more than two or three since they seemed close in age when shown later in childhood. (Assuming that Asgardians age similarly to humans in childhood.) So your age of around 1,050 is right in line with the films' timeline. (I do love it when we're given concrete dates for events in the MCU.)

We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
