I don't think she knew Elendil or was closely related. Try someone a bit closer to her.

Silmaril

Quote:
Zamn ->Erendis ->Elendil ->Isildur ->Etselmo
This is an answer I gave to Bruce MacCulloch regarding another question.

Notice the link : Erendis ->Elendil

This connection was correct according to Bruce. Also regarding the name Uinniel:

Quote:
A title, meaning 'Daughter of Uinen' given by Aldarion to Erendis, in the days when he was seeking her hand in marriage.
What do you think? Was Bruce MacCulloch wrong?

Yes.
I seem to have developed a nasty habit of looking at one post and mistaking it for another. If you look at the post immediately preceding the one in which I confirmed your answer, you will see the hitherto unacknowledged correct answer.

Usually I wouldn't want to go, since I didn't get the answer, but this thread is probably the best on the Quiz Room and it needs to be continued.

Gamil Zirak -> Belladonna Took

In one seperation, you need to think a differently.

In one separation? You mean only one person in between? Wow. Lemme think...

Are you sure this can be done in only one separation? Or am I not understanding you correctly?

No, I think you mis-understand me. It wasn't really explained well so I'm sorry.

Here is what I mean:

Gamil Zirak -> ? -> ? -> *** -> ? -> Belladonna Took.

*** = This is the example I was talking of. This seperation is where you have to think outside the box and come up with a different kind of answer.

It is impossible to get this question with only one seperation.

Sorry for the confusion.

Gamil Zirak - Thingol - Galadriel - Glorfindel - Bilbo Baggins - Belladona Took

Gamil Zirak made many treasures for the store houses of Thingol.

I am assuming Glorfindel met Galadriel sometime in there long history (either in Aman, or after his re-encarnation.)

If not then I can slip in Turgon in between and do it in 7.

If no-one minds I would prefer this answer to include the instructions I put forth.

The answer also involves no assumtions.

Gamil Zirak-> Angrist*-> Morgoth-> Manw-> Olorin-> Belladonna Took.

* the knife that his apprentice made that cut the Silmaril from the Iron Crown.

Now we could take out Manw because both Olorin and Morgoth are Ainu, and put in Telchar between Gamil and Angrist, but I think you get the gist o' things.

I'll take that. It could have also been:

Gamil Zirak ->Telchar ->Narsil ->Bilbo ->Belladonna Took.

Bombur-> Mahtan

We don't like Gandalf links though do we. So....

Bombur ->Gloin -> Frodo ->Galadriel -> ** Mahtan

** Not sure of their meeting. Only clue is that their both Noldor. If they didn't meet, put Fanor in their for me!

I am basing that on when Erendil was before the Valar pleading for the pardon of the Noldor.

I've always considered that a legit answer.

Telchar ->Nob

Must pass through a minimum of two inanimate objects.

Telchar - Angrist - Morgoth - Sauron - Narsil - Aragorn - Nob

Thats seven, and all that i can do, unless Anduril and Narsil can be counted as two different objects.

Telchar - Narsil - Elrond - Anduril - Aragorn - Nob

But that seems wrong somehow

No, sorry there is a way you can do this without counting Narsil and Andril as two seperate objects.

Both objects don't have to hade by Telchar.
