Also - (sorry it's a twoby again) I read the Sil first and picked up that Galadriel was involved in the Rebellion, now UT says that this was wrong - which is correct or am I
Oh this book is so sad (so far) does it have any happy endings.
Define rebellion... she was not involved in the kinslayings as far as I know, but I am not certain if she kept herself from fighting.
It's hard when the two books (the Sil and UT) vary. I'm still reading UT for the first time.

Virumor responded: The Silmarillion doesn't follow JRRT's final version of Galadriel and Celeborn, where the two of them met in Alqualonde and already left for Middle-Earth before the darkening of Valinor and the rebellion of the Noldor. This would then be the reason why Galadriel was forced to stay in Middle-Earth even after the War of Wrath. Hence she couldn't be involved in the Rebellion (In the Sil Galadriel and Celeborn meet in Doriath).
Personally i don't follow the Sil's version as it doesn't make clear why Galadriel was still forced to stay in ME after the War of Wrath - the ban should be lifted for her as well if she set off to Beleriand with Fingolfin's ppl.
