    @Romendacil I : you were the eight King, she was wife to the twelfth King... :) of Gondor naturally :)

    Another one :)

    “By three times saying prayer only,
    one was allowed tot me, most holy…

    All of the gathering watched by three,
    witnesses for him, not me…

    All above, supported by my strength,
    a finger of God, in all it’s length…

    I am consecrated, hallow,
    with me their is no shadow…”


    ? :)

    Nope, search for a location most hallow ...

    Nope... even more hallow! :)

    The location I am looking for is situated on an island the Valar gave as a gift...

    The mountain is the Meneltarma indeed... but the Most Hallow location I am looking for is situated on it... so the right answer is not Meneltarma... sorry :)

    This is the location:

    The last thing I can think of for this one would be Tarmasundar, the roots of the mountain. (out of ideas after that)

    Is it the temple of Morgoth who was built to the time of Sauron in Numenor

    Another riddle (selfmade)

    Three children
    The first of the three brother is very small
    The second is normal and the last is tall
    They all have beards
    The first beard looks like he is gone
    The second's is a normal one
    And the last one's falls to the ground
    Their father nobody can wound
    Since he stays in the next world
    With Iluvatar the old

    Who are they?
    PS:I hope the English is correct

    Hab kein angst, dein English ist sehr gut!:)

    Nope, you are right, there was NO temple, just the flattened space upon the Meneltarma! It is indeed The Hallow of Eru! :) I was fooled by the picture... :)

    " The Hallow of Eru on The summit of the Meneltarma
    The steep upper slopes of the Meneltarma in Númenor were climbed by a spiral road cut into the rock. At the summit, the mountain widened and flattened, opened into a shallow space where many people could gather. This place was hallowed to Eru Ilúvatar, and watched over by three great Eagles known as the Witnesses of Manwë.

    In the early part of the Second Age, the Númenóreans held the Hallow in special reverence. Three times a year, the Kingand the people would climb the Holy Mountain to offer prayers to Eru: the Erukyermë in spring, the Erulaitalë in summer, and the Eruhantalë in autumn. As the centuries passed, the Númenóreans began to neglect the Hallow, and after the time of Tar-Ancalimon it was rarely visited. Tar-Palantir attempted to reinstate it late in Númenor's history, but it was abandoned by his successor Ar-Pharazôn, who brought ruin to the Númenóreans."


    "Elves did not have beards until they entered their third cycle of life." ... so is it the three cycle's of an Elve life? As a baby/young adult: no beard at all, mature life a normal one, and old life a long one??
