    Good guess! I too think of Amandil...

    "Lord of Andúnië and father of Elendil. Though an Elf-friend, he was for many years a friend and counsellor to King Ar-Pharazôn. Dismissed by Sauron, he sailed into the West to seek the pardon of the Valar for the misdeeds of the Númenóreans; his fate is unknown."

    Ar-Pharazon:

    "Twenty-fifth and last King of Númenor. He assailed Mordor and brought Sauron back to Númenor as a hostage, but Sauron seduced him, and persuaded him to sail on Valinoritself. As punishment for this act, the island of Númenor sank beneath the waves of the Great Sea."

    Both good guesses, but the answer to my riddle is someone who was born in later times in Middle-earth.

    Belthil, again a good guess, but not quite. The answer I am looking for did become a king one day though!

    D***mn :) sorry :)
    Have to dig even deeper into it then! :)

    One other I can think of is Sir Gawain ... but he's not in the LOTR .... he's from middle England though and wore a ring with a pentagram in it... but never became a king as far as I know ...

    Also, another good guess, Belthil, but not the right one.

    Big hint: I was the counselor of a father of an ungrateful father. I am one of the Walkers.

    Miguel, you are so close! Boromir is not the answer, but I think you know who the right answer is now!

    Hurray! Miguel, you are correct! I would have also accepted Throngil, or how Aragorn was known when he was the counselor of Ecthelion, father of Denethor (an ungrateful father.)

    The following is a direct quote from the Appendices at the end of The Lord of the Rings: "Thorongil men called him in Gondor, the Eagle of the Star, for he was swift and keen-eyed, and wore a silver star upon his cloak; but no one knew his true name nor in what land he was born."
    As for mine line about the five points, I was referring to the star that Throngil wore upon his cloak because stars have five points.
    The ring I was referring to was the Ring of Barahir.
    And of course, Aragorn is to become the next king of Gondor, so that is a big responsibility.

    I look forward to your piece of trivia, Miguel!

    It's funny that i thought about him a few times. LOTR books is something i need to study more. I'll think about some trivia when i stop feeling dizzy, the sun hit me in the head.

    You can never study LoTR too much! I am currently re-reading The Hobbit because its been a while since I last read it.

    I look forward to figuring out your trivia!

    Not yet. Another hint: Eglarest is where he first stepped foot on Middle-Earth.

    He is the son of the most revered child of Eru, he's not one of the Ainur. At one point, he's 2nd in command after Eönwë.
