No, I did not PM Starflower...Would NEVER do such a thing...intentionally ;*)

How many High-kings OR Arnor was there? I know that...
...There was exatly 1 (one) Arnor. (Did I win?)


If you by High-Kings, mean rulers over Arnor AND Gondor, there has not been that many kings. Let's see... Elendil, Isildur,and...and...nobody until Aragon(Ellesar)...oh,oh, and his son, Eldarion.

That I count as four known High-Kings...we don't know how many followed Eldarion.

But then I could be mistaken by the term High-King...

Nine...........

I recall that from the Appendices.

'There were nine kings before the realm was split into petty realms owing to the blah blah blah blah blah'

Or something along those lines.

Sorry Tom, my typo does not make you a winner! (a VERY worthy effort though) ;)

And no, the answer is not nine, but you are on the right track Bucky

After Elendil and Isildur there were eight High Kings of Arnor. After Eärendur, owing to dissension among his sons their realm was divided into three: Arthedain, Rhudaur, and Cardolan.
(emphasis mine)

Ten in total that is. Elessar was the High King of the Reunited Kingdom, not just Arnor so he does not count. So, you're on Bucky

Okay....Let's try something that might turn the screws a wee bit.

How did Glaurung speak?

In other words, 'Glaurung spoke by ____'?

It's rather easy if you know the answer....A real b*tch if you don't.

Wow...I thought this was a 'gimme'.....

'And Glaurung spoke by the.....

'Evil spirit that was in him.'


Okay, I'll go again, staying in the Turin vein:

Who was the Elf-maiden who spied on Turin & came to his defense after he accidently killed Saeros and told the true story of their confrontation, prompting Thingol to pardon all fault in him?

Ah...Zimrahin/Meldis! Lots of mankind's heroes in those loins...great grandmother to Hador, great, great grandmother to Beren, great x3 to Hurin and Huor, great x4 to Turin and Tuor, great x5 to Earendil, and if the math is correct, then great x69 to Aragorn.

Oh btw the year of their marriage was 337 F.A.
