Tolkien Gateway


Proposal for changing the infobox picture...

Oh hey wow, it's a thing. Sorry, I had no idea what a 'talk page' was, so I asked on the forums, which was probably the wrong place. Okay, so the Eöl page has been re-written, is it okay now or does it need more stuff changed to get off the To-do list? Elf-esteem 19:43, 29 November 2015 (UTC)

[edit] Eol's "Kingdom"

I've read the Silmarillion regarding Eol's story and if I'm correct it seems he lives alone in Nan Elmoth until he ensnares Aredhel and produce a son, Maeglin. There are no references to him having Sindar subjects in his kingdom. Am I right?-- 08:08, 14 January 2016 (UTC)

In that text, it does state that he has a few quiet servants, and they were no doubt Sindar people. He's not a King to have a kingdom; he's a subject of Thingol (even if he begrudged it). He has his own land and household outside the Girdle of Melian by the leave of King Thingol. --Elf-esteem 00:34, 15 January 2016 (UTC)
