OK, its easy- but I don't have time for subtlety! (Revising Vietnam- aargh!)

I am beauty lost, but health recovered
My legend will never be uncovered.
Death I caused, though not by choice
I sing with an enchanting voice.
Two I have been, though one remains-
Tell me please, what is my name?

And btw I know remains and name don't rhyme, OK?

Ok, ok, now I know not all of these fit so great, but my head hurts right now.

Could it be Glorfindel, Luthien, or perhaps Galadriel.

I know some of those are a stretch.

Death I caused, though not by choice she caused amroth to die
I sing with an enchanting voice. the river, or both!
Two I have been, though one remains- it was an elf and a river, now only a river
Tell me please, what is my name?

Annunfuinel, your go!

And thanks elven maiden Earwen for the reminder. I'm sorry but I have no riddle at the moment to offer you and I won't be around for a while so anyone can carry on.

Alright... really cheesy rhyme, but have fun [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

a daughter of princes
who never were kings
in a land by the sea
with a crest of white wings
yet my son rules a kingdom
and sits on a throne
in a country not mine
a land far from my home

Arwen?
Her father Elrond was never a king, although his brother was. She is far from both Rivendell and Aman, in Gondor which is by the sea. The helmets of Gondorian soldiers have a crest of wings and her son Eldarion was king after Aragorn's death. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

wow... it fits pretty nicely, but that's not who I was looking for.

The wings refer to her original homeland

Strewth, I really thought I'd got it!

OK then..... is it Eärwen? The wings thing ( and your clue ) made me think of Alqualondë.
Wasn't she called "Swan Maiden" or something like that? Her son, Finrod Felagund became King of Nargothrond......see where I'm going here?

I am pleased to announce that I have written a riddle. Ahem!

Beautiful and cruel,
Fiery and cold.
Conqueror of the victors,
I stand to the end.


Who am I?

Welcome! Since you also had the right of it, and I have not time today to craft a riddle - would you do the honors and pose the next problem for us?
