Well, I suppose that we could say that we wouldn't even be discussing the motivation of Turgon if Gondolin hadn't been destroyed. It might just be another footnote in HoME. And I wonder if this would...

I don't get how you infer this. I am simply asking whether it is right to keep a large population of people in such a situation.



If only it was so interesting. :rolleyes: Alas, Aredhel is...

But therein lies the rub. The very existence of a place which he cannot find must have made Morgoth even more determined to find and destroy the place, and when he does find it, he brings all his...

I am sorry but that is a reductive argument and it just isn't worth going there. :rolleyes:

It is a fact that Turgon's Gondolin was doomed to fail. That is part of the tragedy. I find it...

I'll explain my silly argument a little more.

We know that if Gondolin had not survived then Earendil would not have been born, ergo, the Valar would not have been called to deal with Morgoth. We...

But it did not survive. It fell in spectacular style. Hiding as a form of defence will only last so long, it is inevitable that it will fail. And if you do manage to hide until you die then those who...

indeed, this is how Aredhel might view things, as one who has become unable to fucntion independently. Neither Turgon nor Aredhel are 'right', what she did and what she felt are simply an...

The people who chose to follow Turgon also chose to go to Gondolin and live there for safety, but the very fact that they are not allowed to leave deprives them of that same free will. That is...

Aredhel most closely links to Eowyn. Both are women confined within their realms who wish to do more. Aredhel, like Eowyn, grows in age and eventually realises that she is in fact imprisoned in her...

I always wonder why, if the Noldor are there to make war, Turgon decides instead to hide. Yes, they may stand a good chance of survival, but when they finally leave their secret hideaway what will...

Now I did not say I hated Turgon, but I do find him to be a questionable leader. ;)

Before he becomes High King of the Noldor it is his perogative if he wishes to hide himself away, but...
