The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 198 - And it's understood

23rd March 2015 (11:02)

She's back! (And next cartoon will be back to the main Silmarillion storyline).

I'm going to add a few author's notes to this as a comment, since it's a less well known story. Also, an unofficial and non-canonical spoilery sequel. :)

Part 198: And it's understood

Next time: Part 199: Getaway

Chibis by tektek.org
Original story by and copyright to J R R Tolkien, ed. C Tolkien: Primarily based on the Silmarillion, but incorporating ideas from the 12-volume History of Middle Earth series.
Questions and comments welcome!

Royal servants

The notion that proximity to power is equivalent to power lasted at least through the 1839 Crisis of the Bedchamber in Britain. They don’t call ’em “ladies-in-waiting” for nothing.

Re: Royal servants

Good point - though back in the days when kings had actual executive power, as opposed to being constitutional monarchs like Victoria, it was even more important.
