Symestreem has it! good job, i actually think it wasn't that hard

(and for movie fans, you can see Grimbold in TTT, when the elves come, he says "get the king" then he yells "open the gate!", and i also saw him in rotk movie as well...)

I seriously considered letting someone else take the thread, because I'm not very good at this. But I decided that would be yellow. So I apologize if this is weird or cryptic.

I had seven sons, and some say other children. My family was rather scandalized at this. Some of my friends betrayed me and injured my children. My children are older than those who, though good, would do them harm.

I think so!
I am the only one,
yet just one of many.
with 99 of mine, I made one,
with 104 of mine, I made another one
my two had none.
Who am I?

Ok, an additional hint...
at 116 of his, I was made,
he carried the last one of its kind.

Incorrect, Arvedui II.

Just for clarity...I am going to post the original riddle with the additional hint given later...all in one post.

I am the only one,
yet just one of many.
with 99 of mine, I made one,
with 104 of mine, I made another one
my two had none.
at 116 of his, I was made,
he carried the last one of its kind.
Who am I?

Could it be Elrond?
I'm not sure about this, but it could be that he got one son when he was 99 and one at 104. His two sons had no children (that i have heard of), Earendil was 116 when he was born, and he bore the only remaining Silmaril.

Nope

Think hard about the first two lines. A silmaril is not the "last one of its kind" that I am looking for. Limit your search to Appendix A.

Could it be Dis daughter of Thrain? She is the only dwarf-woman mentioned in the books, and the years work out. Also, her father carried the last dwarf-ring.

It is neither Elanor Gamgee nor Esmerelda Took. The first part is straightforward; old intoxicant is cryptic.
It's not a hobbit.

None of those. It's not an elf.
Perhaps to be more specific, I should say that intoxicant is a straight clue and old is a cryptic clue. People who like precise spelling should not attempt this puzzle.
