Talk:Legolas

The current links in this redirect lead to articles named "Legolas of Mirkwood" and "Legolas of Gondolin". Shouldn't it, in compliance with the standards, be "Legolas (Elf of Mirkwood)" and "Legolas (Elf of Gondolin)"? Also, I've noticed Legolas Greenleaf redirects to the Mirkwood one, but the Gondolin one was also called Greenleaf, so shouldn't that redirect here as well? -- Ederchil 09:26, 19 August 2008 (EDT)

"In this redirect" disambig, yes? (Making sure I understood you correctly) If so, it is the same situation in Ecthelion's case and for all the articles attached to it. Or Míriel's. And there are more like them. It seems that, whatever the standars may be in the case of same name articles, we have more examples against the rule, than following it... ~~ Þelma 10:49, 19 August 2008 (EDT)
Those don't break the (non-existent) rule. It's just that both Legolas'ses do have an epithet - but it's the same, and nowhere are they referred to as "Legolas of Mirkwood" (unless "Legolas of the Woodland Realm" qualifies) or "Legolas of Gondolin". Hence the renaming. -- Ederchil 11:14, 19 August 2008 (EDT)

[edit] Legolas' Age

The article lists a conjectural age for Legolas as 500-700 years old, and I quote, " It can be assumed despite his suggested age of 500-700 that he had never before come near to the Sea." Is there a reference for this? I've never seen a birth-date given for Legolas in canon. Corsair Caruso 05:47, 2 November 2013 (UTC)

Nope, speculation. Removing it. --Ederchil (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 22:55, 2 November 2013 (UTC)
