About me

My name is Peter and I am a passionate Tolkien fan from the Netherlands. My username Quirinius is the Latin version of my surname, as my ancestors hail from Ancient Rome.

I am an active member of Unquendor, the Dutch Tolkien Society, and a (Vinya) Lambengolmo, interested in Tolkienian linguistics, having studied (neo-)Quenya, (neo-)Sindarin and The Dwarrow Scholar's deutero-Khuzdul, and everything regarding the First Age Edain and their descendants, the Númenóreans and Third Age Dúnedain, but also the Drúedain.

My other non-Tolkienian interests are psychology, linguistics, history and music. I am an avid reader, absolutely devouring books on those aforementioned topics, but also epics, such as Shahnameh and Aeneid.

Favourites

Character: Gandalf (followed by Elros and Faramir)
