What's the question

Post#151 » Fri Mar 10, 2006 7:35 pm

Okay I have no idea about a question for the previous answer. I have looked all over the place and I just can't find what that particular phrase is for.

I do have a comment however on a previous answer & question:
"A.elros"
"Q: Who is/was the father of Arwen?"
"No, the previous question should have read, 'Who was the great, great, great, ... great, great-uncle of Arwen?'"

I think you're both wrong (sorry grondy but I'm going to disagree with you).
Elrond is the father of Arwen. Elrose is brother to Elrond. Elrose is therefore uncle to Arwen. No?
Elrose is also great great... great grandfather to Aragorn so maybe he could also be great great... great uncle in law to Arwen.

Perhaps, but not clever enough to find a question for Grody's answer:

A: Laer cú Beleg

Yep, as Mungo pointed out I was being a smart-alec and got hoisted upon me own pitard. :orcgin:

A: Laer cú Beleg

Hint: Sung by a hero who couldn't stay out of trouble, or as the dragon said, this guy lived in interesting times.

Correct question Mungo, except Turin's lament was for Beleg Cúthalion rather than Beren. 'Laer Cú Beleg' is also the 'Song of the Great Bow'. And Mungo's answer remains:

A: Erebor

Now, based on canon, do we know Ancalagon was nastier than Glaurung, or was he merely the greatest of the FLYING dragons?

Ancalagon the Black was the greatest of the flying dragons per The Silmarillion. I think compared to him Smaug was a pussy cat. :cat:

I don't know if we can compare the relative strengths between Ancalagon and Glaurung. You may want to start a thread under The Silmarillion or Characters for this.

And the answer remains: A: Narquelië
