    It is indeed. My Queen :-D

    I find the thought that my ruler is a huge Tolkien fan quite pleasing. And so must he have. I believe it would have gladdened him immensely to recieve fan-mail from the crown princess of one of the oldest royal houses in the world. One whose origins are well known back in the time of his liking and at that time intimately tied to his Anglo-Saxons. And to find that she understood his way of thinking, etc.

    Okay, here is a new question. Should be easy enough for anyone who has read the books.

    Throughout The Lord of the Rings there are many instances of foreshadowing and prophetic statements/visions. In the House of Tom Bombadill the hobbits have dreams each night. Who is the one that has prophetic dreams and what are the dreams about/foretell?

    Frodo dreams yes, but it is of Gandalf on top of Orthanc (remember he cries "I saw you!" when Gandalf relates the story), of him being borne away, and then of hooves- Black Riders.


    The night after he dreams of... probably arriving in Valinor.

    Macilrille got the two dreams I was looking for. Gandalfs imprisonment and escape from Orthanc and Frodo's journey into the west.

    IIRC the actual passage are described in the same words.

    This question is easier and probably my last for a while. No need to boost my already large ego more and annoy the rest of you even more ;-)

    The Seven Clans of Dwarves was in contact and held congregations at a very special spot until they lost it.

    Where was this spot?

    panson24 is right, the story of it is told in HoME 12, "The Peoples of Middle-Earth, p. 295ff "Of Dwarves and Men". Gundabad was the birthplace of Durin and the Longbeards and thus sacred to all Dwarves and its loss was not viewed with happiness by the Dwarves.

    I was not sure, I was between Khazad-Dum or Gundaband

    well, the only question that comes to my mind is about something I read yesterday, it's quite easy I think...

    1- Bilbo and Frodo had their birthdays on the same date, which date was that?

    2- How old were they at Bilbo's party?

    3- How old were they when Frodo left the Shire?

    1. Their birthday was on September 22.
    2. Bilbo was 111 (eleventyone), and Frodo was 33, together they were 144.
    3. Frodo left 17 years later, so he would have been 49 or 50 ( I cant find the precise he left right now), and Bilbo would have been 127 or 128 years old.

    Frodo left after his 50th Birthday, so that he was at the same age as Bilbe when he went on hias journey.

    When Gandalf and Pippin ride to Minas Tirith they talk about the palantiri. Where were the palantiri originally and where are they all now (TA 2980)?

    Annuminas, Amon sul, the tower of Elostirion, Orthanc, Minas Anor, Minas Ithil and Osgilliath. Annuminas and Amon sul stones are at the bottom of the ice bay of forochel, the one in elostirion is still there, as is the orthanc stone and Minas Tirith stone. Minas Morguls stone is in the possesion of Sauron (probably in the Dark Tower) and the osgilliath stone is at the bottom of the Anduin.

    I have one;

    What is Ezellohar? It's meaning, where is it and what's the difference between it and the Quenyan translation (it is Vanyarin).

    Ezellohar is the hill outside Valmar where the two great trees, Telperion and Laurelin, stood.

    The meaning of the word, I think it was green hill or green mound.

    And the translation to Quenyan it's Corollairë which means summer mound.

    Yes it was, i think the most difficult part about this thread is coming up with a question that's hard

    Curunir... I believe it was something around "man of skill".

    Galadriel

    Well the main purpose was to stop the threat of Dol Guldur, but Saruman (Curunir) also wanted to dissuade the other members of the council from searching for the ring.
