Nothing that heroic and middle-earth saving could ever go without songs and such by those who actually knew what the two had accomplished. Such as the folk in the Shire seemed unaware and were rather dismissive; but all the Rohirrim and all Elven folk would have known plus the Dwarves that had contact with Elves and other dwarves and of course all from the Golden City. If as the movie depicts they all bowed or at least honored the hobbits that alone, being such an extraordinary thing to do by a king and not just any king- The High King of both Elves and Men to say the least.
If that does not comfort your daughter, you might remind her that today, this very hour there is someone, somewhere most likely inspired to write a song, an epic poem to honor Master Frodo of the Shire, and the other Hobbits, particularly the hero of the story,Mister Samwise Ghamgee.
Sam stood up and cried oh great glory and splender, and all my wishes have come true; This is in response to King Ellesar putting Frodo and Sam on thrones and then they were about to listen to a lay from a minstrel of Gondor who was going to tell the magnificent story of how these hobbits in effect saved middle earth by their courage. You will find this in chapter 4 of The Return of the King. So the greatest personage in the land gave Sam his heart's desire as well as all of us who have humbly followed.
Well found Lee Lee, isn't it wonderful that Aragorn took his great knowledge of life and love into the Kingship with him. So many other Kings mentioned in the LOTR and the Sil have major attitude and eventually bring them selves and their Kingdoms undone, whether Numenorean, Elf or Eastern Man.
"My friends, You bow to no one!"
Oh dear Brego, now more things to look up. . As for the appendages, that is horrifying to me. Just like Dick Francis and his one jockey, losing a hand and then forever after in any story he was in , the enemy always hurt his other hand. I could not bear to read anything about that jockey after a bit. Perhaps he saw so many with mangled or missing hands or fingers during his stint in the military, Other than that I cannot think why he would have a fascination with it.
