[edit] Source of Quote

Can anyone verify the source of the quote in the entry? I think it's from the Lay of Leithian, but I don't have the source material in front of me. Thanks. --Ebakunin 19:08, 28 April 2006 (EDT)

I just did a search through my copy of the Lay of Leithian as well as all my Tolkien documents and its not in there. Google also turns up no results so I'm not sure where it's from... --Hyarion 19:22, 28 April 2006 (EDT)

[edit] Fifth son?

In Vinyar Tengwar 41 and in The Peoples of Middle-earth, both including very late writings (late '60s), Curufin is consistently shown as the 4th son of Feanor, older than Caranthir...I seriously think we have to reach a site-wide, definitive, crystal clear consensus on what Tolkien's writings are to be included in the main sections of the articles - does The Silmarillion take precedence in matters such as this, or Tolkien's latest writings?

As the canon policy says, we should keep it as Christopher decided, so unless he showed some regret in the commentaries, we should keep the order showed in The Silmarillion. --LorenzoCB 08:42, 23 October 2021 (UTC)
