Anglachel? Doing justice for all Turin's faux-pas by, well, drinking his blood?

Very good question! Vague.

That's right! Second wife of Finwe, mother of Fingolfin and Finarfin.

She had daughters? Oh... my mistake. I looked at the family tree in the Silmarillion.

EDIT: you threw me for a turn when you deleted your post, lol!

Legolas wore boots instead of the usual light footwear of the elves.

This wouldn't be Aragorn's prototype Trotter, would it?

Boots

O Most Mighty Gollum, you've got it - it's Trotter indeed. Would you like to explain what the puzzling thing actually was, for the benefit of those who couldn't guess?

Anyway, the thread is yours. Well done!

I think the hobbit Trotter was captured and tortured in Barad-Dur, but escaped and had to wear wooden shoes due to the injuries inflicted on his feet. That should be near to the true story, at least, Pitchwife.

Recall the guy who met with a rock?

Last of the noldor elves in Middle earth, Galadriel, was the greatest if I am not mistaken.

That's a good guess, but not what I'm looking for. This person was specifically described using both adjectives.

It seems the answer to this question is in my head waiting to jump out. I almost recall the quote "And so he died: the last, who was greatest" or something like that. And unless I'm making it up or thinking of another book I'm going to kick myself if I can't find the answer.

*thinks about it*

Hurin, who was "greatest of the warriors of mortal men" if I've got the quote right; and the last of the House of Hador to fight in the Nirnaeth Arnoediad. In fact the last person to fight of anyone on his side there.

Hmm... I can feel the answer on the edge of my consciousness... I'm sure it's a Man, such as Tuor or Aragorn or Elendil.

Wait... wait... brainwave- Is it Thingol?

Negative. But you're correct that it is a Man. Sort of.

No, not Gil-Glad. The person was neither an Elf nor a Dwarf.

Not a woman! But not an Elf, Dwarf, Orc, or Hobbit either. That should help!

Gandalf is indeed who I was looking for. The last to disembark, but the 'greatest spirit' as intuited by CÝrdan.
I suppose I can let slide the two guesses in one post.
Go ahead with something new.
