This week on So, You Want to Read Tolkien, we discuss Chapter 14 and 15 of the Silmarillion.
Chapter 14 – Of Beleriand and It’s Realms
Please just look at these maps. Nothing happens.
- Normal map of Beleriand
- How Beleriand fits in with the Middle Earth we know and love
- A fan map that includes Angband
- A map showing where everyone sets up
- Another map showing where folks have set up.
Chapter 15 – Of the Noldor in Beleriand
- Turgon – son of Fingolfin, brother Fingon, etc.
- Idril aka Celebrindal – Turgon’s daughter. She’s important later because of the men involved in her life. Of course.
- Galadriel – Daughter of Finarfin, the Noldor lord who stayed in Valinor.
- ”Sons of Finarfin” – Finrod – Lord of Nargothrond
- Melian – Maiar, Thingol’s wife
- Thingol – King of Doriath
- Cirdan – Lord of the Havens
- Ulmo – Valar of the sea, seems to be breaking the whole “we are notting getting involved” proclamation. Still upset about Manwe dumping him for a woman I guess.
- Morgoth – The big bad
