In brief: 9 years of age

Menarche occurs 2 - 2 1/2 years after the first sign of puberty which appears as early as 7 years of age.

Menarche occurring before 9 years may be precocious puberty. Parents might want to consult with a pediatric endocrinologist if a girl < 8years is developing both pubic hair + breast enlargement because you might want to delay puberty and thus menarche.

Ten years old is usually considered the earliest age.
Although there are documented cases of women younger than that going through menarche. Most women follow their mother in age of menarche. Over the last 100 years the age of menarche has gotten younger & younger. Typical now is 12-14 years old in north america. If you are younger than this be sure to see your doctor.
