[edit] FA Status

This article has most of the qualities required to be nominated for Featured Article status. It's pretty well written, stable, and is well-illustrated. The one thing it lacks is references. Let's get them put in, and add to the nomination queue. I'll help.--Theoden1 19:20, 27 July 2008 (EDT)

I've added "Languages" and improved "Etymology". However, there is room for more. Currently, the article is mostly history. Should this article include sections like "Law" and "Customs", or does that belong on Gondorians? -- Ederchil 03:36, 28 July 2008 (EDT)
Excellent-- it's now worthy of nomination. The additional section should be put here. Plus, Gondorians is only a stub at present.--Theoden1 10:37, 28 July 2008 (EDT)
I don't think history is properly sourced yet. All I did was add semi-secondary sources. And as for Gondorians being a stub... so was Númenóreans. -- Ederchil 10:51, 28 July 2008 (EDT)
Gondorians can be expanded and made into a beautiful article (which IMHO could include "Law" and "Customs" chapters very nicely). Though not by me. :) If it were the Rohirrim maybe. "Hail, Éomer!" so on and so forth :) (just reached my 5th grade behavior peak :p) ~~ Þelma 11:30, 28 July 2008 (EDT)

[edit] Region south of the White Mountains

I am perplexed about the region south of the WM named "Gondor" which sometimes is synonymous or ambiguous with the Kingdom. It seems to be a nameless, or unnamed region of Gondor, like Anorien and Ithilien. Named subregions include Andrast, Lamedon and Belfalas, but the region itself seems to be tagged as "Gondor" on some maps. This refers only to late TA context, and the maps perhaps suggest that the became synonymous with the Kingdom in that time.

My question is: if the earliest form of Gondor was the twin fiefs of Anorien and Ithilien, then the Gondor region was not a core of the kingdom. Is there any information as to how or when this region was attached to the Kingdom?

Finally, perhaps we should begin an article Gondor (region)? Sage 12:46, 13 March 2014 (UTC)
