Good for you, Tom. I remembered the correct answer late last night, but I had no inclination to climb out of bed to answer a trivia question.

I thought that Saruman was a maiar of Aule's, also. So my guess is Aule, even though it doesn't really fit the X:Y::A:B pattern.

Too easy?... I'll try to climb a couple of steps on the ladder then...:*p


Númenor is for King "Elf-Friend" as Gondor is for ???


But maybe, thats also too easy... We'll see then...:*D

OK. I'll try the same tactic again. Is it King Elf-friend, since I think that is the translation of Elendil?

I'm sorry Prince, but those four was some mighty counts,

and I don't recall a Faramir being King of Gondor in the fourth age. :*D

More hints : King "Elf-Friend" was the 4. king of Númenor.

Edit : btw, who was it that wanted this quiz a bit harder??? Did it become too difficult?

Well, I don't have the roll of kings of Gondor memorized. I just may have to "remember" where it is in the book.

Elendil ruled as High King of the Numenorean Realms in Exile, which would obviously include Gondor. Therefore, IMO he could be construed as the first "King of Gondor", although Isildur and Anarion were co-rulers of Gondor until Anarion's death. After Isildur was Meneldil, so...

If you count Elendil, then Meneldil would be the fourth King of Gondor.

If you don't count Elendil, then Cemendur would be the fourth King of Gondor.

Eru Ilúvatar, you almost live up to your name... you, of all Tolkien's creations should be all knowing. :*D

You are so close... but not quite there yet...

Yes, please do count Elendil of Arnor as King of Gondor as well.

If King "Elf-Friend" is King Elendil of Númenor then what is the name I want of the King of Gondor?
