Quick Question(s)
I've got some questions, and I'm sure someone here knows the answer(s).

- Did Ancalimė fight for Sauron?
- And are the winged mounts of the Nazgūl birds or undefined creatures?

Your first question had me stumped; I couldn't remember Ancalimė at all. I looked her up and she is, apparently, an unhappily married Ruling Queen of Numenor who probably was more interested in her traumatic private life than getting involved with rebel Maiar...

As for the Nazgul-things, I've always gone for the view that they were somewhat similar to the pterodactyl. I believe this is supported in the Letters. But what a marvellous description they have..."creatures of an older world"...

Fell Beasts
I believe the creatures that, somewhere in LotR, the winged steeds of the Nazgūl are called Fell Beasts (with the capital letters). Of course it's not really a name as we have them, but the capital letters do suggest they were called thus.
