Guess which Shakespeare play I studied at school? :)

Also, today's cartoon contains an in-joke for people who know the laws of heraldry...

Fëanor's audience is all the grandchildren of Finwë, assembled together.

Though Tolkien reversed it in his heraldry for some reason, so that the men's emblems are diamond-shaped and the women's are round. (It's not mentioned anywhere in the books that I know of, but if you find his drawings, that's what they look like.)
