[edit] ‘young king Minardil’?

Minardil was 180 years old when he was killed, and already had grandchildren. Judging by the ages at death of those of his near predecessors and successors who died a natural death, his natural life-expectancy would have been about 225. So at 180 he can not be called ‘young’ by any stretch of the imagination, even by Dúnadan standards. Therefor I’m removing the word. — Mithrennaith 00:07, 8 September 2010 (UTC)
