White Tree Odd King/Queen Out

Well, this is just like any other O _ O. There's a list of different Kings and or Queens, and by guessing, you have to figure out which one is the odd one out. An example would be
Quote:
What is the Odd King Out?

Thranduil
Finwe
Feanor
Gil-Galad
Fingolfin
Dain

The answer would be Dain, because he's the only dwarf king in the batch! Get it? Good, because here's the first set:

Turgon
Ar-Pharazon
Thingol
Elessar
Morgoth


Have fun!

Melkor was a valar, and the strongest I might add. Anyway, no, you've got the wrong man (valar) Keep 'em comming

Ar-Pharazon is the only one whose name is in the Adunaic form? (Also the only one who ruled off the shores of traditional Middle Earth (Numenor)). Or, if I may be allowed to guess further, Elessar would be the only King who died a natural death, as Morgoth is cast into the void, and Thingol, Turgon and Ar-Pharazon killed in the sacking of their respective realms.

Cheers,
Lyta

...um...Morsul? Melkor and Morgoth are the same. Melkor is his name as a Ainur. Morgoth (Black Enemy) Bauglir (The Constrainer) is the name the elves gave him after he stole the simarils and went into middle earth. They are one in the same.

AR-Pharazon wasn't killed in his sacking. He caused it, but wasn't there. Never-the-less. You're wrong on all counts.

Wow, what happened to Ar-Pharazon, then? He got to Aman and they said "go back!"? (I do admit incomplete knowledge here!) Oh course, that means that perhaps the one who did not see the Blessed Land (Elessar) could be the odd one out...Morgoth, Turgon, Thingol, Ar-Pharazon would have all seen it then...

Cheers!

Actually, Thingol (Elda) married Melian (Maia), so that would make two of them!

Don't worry, Morsul! I often feel dumb in these threads; I just don't have the courage to play as often as you do! I'm just guessing really, and Eru help me if I get it right, 'cause I don't have a clue what I'd ask next!

Cheers,
Lyta (just having fun on a late Saturday night!)

There's a thread in...I believe it's the books that states what happens to Ar-Pharazon and his men. Some say he was killed, others say he fell into a everlasting sleep on the shores of Tuna. Anyways, yes, these are hard, but you learn a lot. Btw, all wrong so far. Here's a hint: Time will tell

Close, but no. It's more general

Take a right turn al Albuquerky, then travel east for 10 miles. You'll see a sign saying "Bedrock in 20 3/4 mi"

I suppose one could say they are all related! But that wouldn't be an odd one out, would it? Fingolfin->Fingon->Gil-Galad (direct relations) and Fingolfin->Turgon->Idril->Earendil->Elros->lots of Numenorian kings->Elendil

Ok, it IS a crackpot answer, I know, but I had fun posting it!

Cheers!

OK Here's the next:

Fingolfin
Elessar
Isildur
Ar-Pharazon



It's easy, I guess!
