Question

If someone could provide the info of where Curudan appears?
In the .gif, he is stated as being the brother of Nerdanel, but I have been unable to corroborate it with any text. Does anyone knows where I can find this?
Also the part where it states that Maglor is married? I have searched the shibboleth but have not found it?

Maglor's marriage was mentioned in the 'notes' to 'Dwarves and Men'; HoME 12. Though it may have been in the Shibboleth...

Some further comments:

Curudan the brother of Nerdanel is as fare as i know not mentioned in any text of either JRR Tolkien or CRT Tolkien.

The same is true for the Kings of Cardolan und Rhudaur. I have heared that some of them can be found in Middle-Erath-Roll-Play-booklets. If this are realy the sources used for the table, we have to be very critical with it.

i.e. for our purposes it is fan fiction [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img]

Quite right, it is fan-fiction as long as you can't find an additional source, which in this case is very unlikely.

For the part of Men I found a more reliable source:

Lalaith's Middle-Earth Science Page

I linked the main page, but it is in english so you will find your way. The site features also some other very nice articles. So I thought it is beter give you the chance to see it completly.
