The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 256 - Dispositions

27th November 2015 (14:39)

I've been busy with work which is why these have been coming slowly...

Today's cartoon has a call-back to my deutero-canonical side story about the Noldor Women left behind in Tirion. All the Silmarillion actually says here is 'There they received the pardon of the Valar, and Finarfin was set to rule the remnant of the Noldor in the Blessed Realm'.

    Part 256 Dispositions

    Next time: Part 257: North

    Chibis by the now-dead website formerly known as 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!

    "was set to rule" doesn't sound as if Finarfin was asked, either.
    He probably badly needed those walks for his constitution.

    True, but on the other hand, he's still a son of Finwë and a Noldo, so I suspect he wasn't too upset at being made a king.
