Well, you're both right. So the first of you that gets here can ask the next question.

and to think that I was about to say that it was because Gurthang was the only one reforged. . . . good thing I changed my mind.

Wich grave is said to have survived the destruction of Beleriand.

(The grave was in Beleriand of course)

I know it kind of goes into the second age and are not realy a good question, but my mind does not work to day.

Oh, I think I see what you're asking. It was the fourth day of the war that the Nirnaeth officially began - before I thought you just wanted the start of the war in general.

Your thread

The question was for the oldest heirloom of Men, wasn't it? Correct me if I'm wrong, but the Ring of Barahir was forged by an Elven craftsman, not a Man. It was then given to Beren by Finrod Felagund I think, to pass down all the generations before arriving with Aragorn. Been a while since I read The Silmarillion, but I think that's correct.

yes it was made by elves, but never an elven heirloom. It was given to men and became an heirloom in their house.

I am quite sure that the definition "heirloom of men" fits the Ring of Barahir.

Very good point, Tarpaladin, I thought the same way until recently when I discovered otherwise on another forum

Anyways, Thinlomien now has the thread -the answer I sought was indeed Brandir.

Sorry for the delay! I went home for the weekend and didn't have any internet access.

this is just off the top of my head, but was it Celegorm? Either him or the twins, methinks. It's been several years since I last read the Sil, so my memory's hazy at best when I don't take the time to look something up.
