The Fellowship was made up of nine members known as the "Nine Walkers" because they were to be set against the Nine Riders, The Nazgul "that are evil".

OK......here's one:

An orc of Mordor, and probably one of the Uruk-hai. He was part of the raiding party that captured Merry and Pippin at Parth Galen, and was slain by the Riders of Éomer near the eaves of Fangorn Forest. How he died I would have to say from a spear.



Who or what was Ungoliant?

An éored was the main military division of the Rohirrim, normally consisting of one hundred and twenty Riders.

I can't believe you got that question :p. Anyways nice job.

For the anwser im going to have to say they married into the Baggins family? Because Frodo's great grandfather Largo, married Tanta Hornblower. Well I think thats what it is, I could be wrong. :p

Hmmm, yes you are correct. Sorry I'm tired. I'll ask a different question. Here goes an easy one. :p

When and why was the Tower of Orthanc sealed ?
By this do you mean locked? Or actually sealed?

It was sealed in the chapter Flotsam and Jetsam when Gandalf asks Treebeard to pour water back into all the chasms under Isengard to prevent a possible secret escape of Saruman from Orthanc.

It was locked when Treebeard allowed Saruman to leave Orthanc with Wormtongue and go wherever he chose. Treebeard made Saruman lock it and give him the key so no one would set foot inside Orthanc. This was done because now that there was a King who had regained his ancient realm, Orthanc was the King's property, and people entered and left it by his leave.

Is this what you're looking for?

Also, from before.....

Who or what was Ungoliant?
No offense to the questioner KellGreenleaf, but this question is too broad and unknown to answer with any surety. Indeed the controversy surrounding Ungoliant is nearly as great as the Winged Balrog debate or whether or not the Sons of Elrond went over the Sea at the end of the Third Age. Starflower's answer was very good, and seems the most likely, but no text ever says specifically that Ungoliant was a Maia. She was a "corrupted spirit" or something. Anyway, must letting you know! Sorry to be pedantic! :)
