Tolkien trivia question and answer #33

Tolkien trivia question and answer #33

There wasn’t a huge response to my question whether I should hold guesses or let them go, but of those who did express a preference most wanted to see the answers. They also averred that I should not increase my workload. Actually, sending the comments through as they come up is just as easy so I won’t change anything.

Yesterday’s question was “What was the Endless Stair” and the answer is “A spiral staircase in Khazad-dum (Moria) that went from the lowest dungeon to Durin’s tower.” I wonder if the Dwarves had ever fashioned a Slinky. Now that would be cool.

Today’s question is “Who were the peredhil, and what choice were they given?” Answer tomorrow.

  • The peredhil were those with the blood of both the Edain and the Eldar in them.  They were given the choice of which race they wished to belong.  If I remember correctly, only a few, like Arwen (and the other two of Elrond’s children), chose to be humans.  Most chose to be Elves.
