Very good and thank you. Question, so the King of Arnor rightly also is king of Gondor? but the king or steward of gondor not the rightful king of Arnor had it survived.

Please Help me Understand Gondor Stewardship and Kingship

What is the difference between a steward and a king in authority? Why did Aragorn wait to become king and why did not earlier ancestors take the crown in Gondor.

Agreed

That was my original response and idea. Two separate accounts of flitting of smaller dwarves and elves. But without the text quoted [yet] I cant be sure what is going on.

I would guess his authority is no longer needed in the return west. Maybe because I am christian but i assumed he had more reward/fame in valinor for his deeds. So instead of authority, equal fame...

Thanks for the thoughts but I have to disagree. Gandalf the grey actually died [letters 156] he is no more.
