The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 93: Tirion on Túna

'Cleaved' or 'clove'?

I think in some versions of the story the Elves actually had copies of both Telperion and Laurelin in Tirion, but only the White Tree got passed on to other people later. (And yes, if anyone 's reading these who's only seen the films, this is the ultimate origin of the White Tree of Minas Tirith, after several thousand years of intervening arboral generations.)

Part 93: Tirion on Túna

Next time: Part 94: Freezeframe.
