Since the trivia types are now organised into groups, the Wight has asked me to start a Grab Bag thread. Any question you like, about any of Tolkien's works, is welcome.

To start it off, what was the original purpose of Hithaeglir?

Melkor wanted to deny Orome the possibility to ride futher into the east of ME.

Well, the mountains slowed down the march of the elves from Cuiviénen into the west, but in the Silmarillion there is stated &quot;[the Hithaeglir] were reared by Melkor to hinder the riding of Oromé.&quot;

The Riding of Orome simply meant that Orome lead the Elves. The purpose of the Misty Mountains was actually to hinder the Elves who were with Orome, not Orome himself.
So I accept the 'Riding of Orome' as an answer, but not simply Orome.


Now you can ask!

OK, the &quot;Grab Bag&quot; seems to be the perfect location for this question:
What is enscribed upon the tombstone of JRRT and his wife?

On JRRT's tombstone is inscribed 'Beren'
And on his wife's, 'Luthien'.

I would like to dedicate my thanks to galpsi for providing me with this answer, and modestly letting me post it instead of him. (<img src=wink.gif ALT=""> )

You couldn't think of a nicer gift-giver than Annatar? Couldn't I have been Celeborn the magnanimous? Noooo! Annatar it is.
We all know that somebody got impaled on a spike in New Zealand and the presumptive favorite is that it's Saruman impaled on some bit of his devlish machinery. Leaving aside the question of PJ's liberties, who do we know was done in by Saruman's &quot;precious machinery&quot;?

Cool.
This was the second time already I used this answer correctly <img src=pimp.gif ALT=":hat">

If there existed an analogy between the Ruin of Doriath and the Nibelungenlied, what Middle-Earth river would be the counterpart to the Rhine, and why?

Alright, I should have explained in more detail.

The river Rhine plays a prominent role in the saga of Siegfried and the Nibelungs. There is one river in Middle-Earth which played a role similar to the Rhine in the course of the Fall of Doriath. This means, they both were involved in a special event which occurred in both legends.
Just think of the second part of Wagner“s opera...

You know, Sharku, this question has been bugging me since I first read it. It seems to me that for any river in ME to play the role of the Rhein, it would have to be source of the Silmarils and set all of the fatal business in motion as the Rhein was the source of das Rheingold. Now I'm even less informed about the Silmarillion than I am about the Ring des Nibelungen, but I didn't think that the Silamrils were linked to any river in the same meaningful way that das Rheingold was.
Nor even if the Nauglamir was the intended parallel do
I quite understand it, for I thought that its material came out of Tirion rather than a river. I'm baffled!

Galpsi came close, but bear in mind that, originally, the Rhine is not the _source_ of the Nibelungen-hoard, but, well...and there“s a river in ME who had the same function after Doriath fell.

Are you thinking of the Ascar, where most of Doriath`s treasure came to rest? It was renamed Rathloriel, which I think means Goldenbed.

That“s exactly what I meant - the drowned Rheingold, the drowned treasure of Doriath.

BEREN, because he could no longer be dexter without his right hand, so he had to use the sinister, i.e. left one.

name at least two characters in LOTR of whom we know that they are gay!

To give it away so that this doesn't turn into a discussion of sexuality, I think Sharku may be asking where JRRT might have described someone's actions as having been done gayly of someone that might have been described as gay (cheerful). I don't recall these exact references, but I know they exist.

Alright, Tulkas is really cheerful. But Legolas?
The two I immediately thought of were Tom Bombadill (a &quot;merry fellow&quot and Merry (name).
But you got the 'point' behind this question, so, go on, Gwaihir.

Haudh-en-(ithinkitwas)-Ndengin, the hill which is raised from the casualties of the Nirnaeth Arnoediad (these were the two most difficult elven words, let me tell you...).

Sorry, guys. I'm not losing interest in the board, as you may think, but I'm kind of busy at the moment. Internet acces is running a bit low as well. Come the first of next month and I'll be seen around aas often as always!

What was the special thing about Haudh-en-Ndengin, and mainly the circumstance that it stood in the middle of Anfauglith?

Do you mean the odd fact that the mound was covered by green grass amidst the desert?

Tolkien is much taken with the image of fruitful burial mounds as a kind of posthumous vindication. So much so that this theme alone could be a long and fruitful thread.
Who is interred in Haudh in Gwanur?
