Tolkien trivia question and answer #6

Tolkien trivia question and answer #6

Wow, you people are good. Jeff got the answer and the extra credit. Phew!

The answer to yesterday’s question, “Translated from the Black Speech, what was written on the One Ring?”, is “One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.” The extra credit asked for the quotation in the Black SpeechL “Ash nazg durbatulúk, ash nazg gimbatul, ash nazg thrakatulûk agh burzum-ishi krimpatul.”

I once told Melanie that I wanted “One Ring… etc.” engraved on our wedding bands. I don’t think she knew whether I was joking or not.

Today’s question is: What is the full title of the The Lord of the Rings. (No looking at your book covers or title page.)
