The artificial trees Glingal and Bethil stood in the Tower of the King in which city
I thought about putting some ot Val's excellent History of Middle Earth Brainteaser questions here, like the ten or fifteen for which I still haven't been able to dig up any answers; however, I decided that wouldn't be fair.
How many teeth did Gollum have
Just a sec, gonna get my books here. *runs off in search for her books*
Found them. Let's see... The Tower of King Turgon in Gondolin.
`Chestnuts, chestnuts,` he hissed, `Teeth! Teeth! My preciousss; but we has only six`
I love listening to J R R read this chapter on a tape put out by Harper Collins called The Hobbit. Tolkien reads Riddles in the Dark and various poems from Lord of the Rings.
The answer is: 6

From which Vala did Gandalf learn pity and endurance beyond hope
I'll take a stab at this though....Ulmo? Since that's his boss? Or was Aule his boss....d*mn! I'll have to walk all the way to the bookshelf to get my copy of Silm!
That's why I keep a stack of books at my computer: my bookshelves are just too far away.
From Silm, Valaquenta
Mightier than Este is Nienna, sister of the Feanturi; she dwells alone.........But she does not weep for herself; and those who hearken to her learn pity, and endurance in hope.
Hand it over then G, I'm feeling rather peckish. *rubs tummy*
What was the unusual hair-color of the Rohirrim, and what name did the Dunlendings give them as a result
D*mn! Val got there first!
Thanks for the snack, btw.
Strawberry blond? What colour would that be? Blond with a reddish tint?
went into battle wearing straw boaters on their heads
Can you just picture it?
I'll wait and post the next one later tonight to maybe spread the joy around more.
I only have four more questions to answer in Valedhelgwath's excellent great quiz called:
History of Middle Earth Brainteaser to be found under The History of under Middle-Earth.
Remember to email your answers to him by the end of September; don't post them on the forum.
*lies in wait behind a rock waiting to pounce on the next question*
What road led from Bree to Rivendel
Bwahahaha! I beat you to it, both of you!
What was Merry's real name in genuine Hobbitish
I'm pleased your pleased Val; however, I'd rather I'd double checked and spared you all a bunch of unnecessary research.
Shoot! I only closed my eyes for a second....
Why did Merry and Pippin have reason to thank Grishnákh
No, I'll let you have this one. But hurry, all right?
Aha! For carrying them far enough away from the Orc camp so that they avoided being slaughtered by Eomer's band of warriors.
Mmm...I feel another pseudo-simaril snack coming up....

You got it girl!
Hard one? I call that an easy one!
Who was the brother of Rúmil and Orophin
What standard did Théoden fell at the Battle of the Pelennor Fields
How were the Teleri mainly armed at the Kinslaying
Name the Towers of the Teeth
can I answer this one too?
The Towers of Teeth are Narchost and Carchost.
Name Lightfoot's foal
What was the capitol of the Orcs of the Misty Mountains
Mount Gundabad is located near the junction if the Grey Mountains and the Misty Mountains. Many of the Orcs relocated here after the submergence of Beleriand. And from here they spread during the Second Age of Middle-earth.
What trees were peculiar to Lórien
By the way... Only a week left to send me your answers on the Brainteaser that I set in the "History of" section.
Bet you thought I'd poached your previous question when you saw my name flash up on the Index Board.
Besides that Val, anyone who doesn't know the answer has never finished reading "The Grey Havens".
