They grew darker.

Oh good! I had my doubts about the spelling 'cause for example the name of Lalaith was twisted as Lailath! [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

So, what is the connection between the Hunting of the Wolf and river Esgalduin?

Question

I hope this is the correct answer

because Carcharoth the Wolf trunk drunk from the river Esgalduin his pain eased and the hunters (Thingol and company) became the hunted?

Ok, I give up on you. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]
I was looking for that part where Huan and Carcharoth were fighting and the ground shook so that the rocks blocked the falls of Esgalduin.
But you were so close that you may continue. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

The wife of Fingolfin was Anaire. She remained on Aman mainly due to her friendship with Earwen. All her sons went with her father.
This was my answer to the question you asked me on this thread back in Nov, 2002. You must be interested in Anaire. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

I have a tendency to reuse questions. I'll think of a new one. She's just left out of The Silmarillion so folks have to dig a little deeper.

Name all of the sisters of Fingolfin that Tolkien went through.

With the sudden urge to ressurect old threads sweaping across people on the Downs, we start to lose really good threads such as this one. Beren's confirmation is required on this one, which is odd, because Beren is very good at keeping commitments to threads, but I think we can forgive ol' Dry Bones for this one.

Ok, a question. What was Ondolind the original name for?
