Fëanor was Galadriel's (half-)uncle.

Whose great grandson was killed by Azog? There are two answers, and I want both.

OK, I'll try to work through this logically-

Aredhel's husband- Eol
Eol's son- Maeglin
Maeglin's grandfather- Fingolfin
Fingolfin's mother-in-law- ???? (I think his wife is called Anaire)
Fingolfin's mother-in-law's grandson- Turgon/Fingon

So, is the answer either Turgon or Fingon?

Tricksy one.

Who was Finduilas' only first cousin?

On the topic of cousins....

How many first cousins did Gil-Galad have and who were they?

Two? That would be Idril and Maeglin.

I don't recall any references to who Gil-Galad's mother was, so the only cousins I know of are on his father's side. Of course, I am assuming that you are considering Gil-Galad to be the son of Fingon, and not Orodreth as has been suggested in later works of HoME.

Yep, exactly what I was after. I'm going by the version in the Sil where CJRT made him Fingon's son as is shown in the family tree at the back. You're up .

They were married!

They were second cousins (a little close, don't you think?).

Oops, I didn't ask that the relationship be spelled out. Extra points if you can trace the connection, otherwise the question is yours.

Galadriel's grandfather was Thingol, and Celeborn's grandfather was Elmo. Thingol and Elmo were brothers.

Name two sets of twins and how they are related to each other.

Elured and Elurin
Elladan and Elrohir

Elured/Elurin are the brothers of Elwing who is Elrond's mother, who in turn is the father of Elladan and Elrohir. So, that would make Elured/Elurin Elladan and Elrohir's grand-uncles?

Just one problem... Elwing was Elrond's mother. Other than that, perfect. The thread is yours.

Ah....forgot about this thread.

Who is Elrond's mother-in-law's husband's daughter's father's father's father's oldest brother's daughter's husband's grand-daughter's husband's mother's father's brother's son's male cousin's mother's father's oldest son's son?

You're quite right NightKnight, I made a slight mistake in the question. It's been changed now, thanks for pointing it out.

Yes, but it wouldn't have been as fun if I had just asked for Celebrian's daughter straight away, would it?
