Princes of Dol Amroth

 February, 25 2006

Questions about the life and times of Imrahil and his family can be asked here, including questions about Ultimatums, Kin-Strife and the shorter stories. Discussions about Brand can go either here or in the Best-Loved Son thread, since his stories sort of overlap both cycles.

Do you go with Soledad's Version that Imrahil ran away to live with the Elves for a couple of years before he met Andra and if so what on earth did they fight about?

I honestly haven't decided that one yet, though I'm tending towards saying no. I can't imagine Gildor keeping Imrahil against his parents' wishes for that length of time-they're hardly abusive parents. I think Imri might very well have quarreled with them and somehow made his way to Edhellond, but Gildor would have not allowed him to stay very long before he negotiated his return. I have no idea what the quarrel was about either, unless it involved that business with the players.

Do Heth and Andra actually get along or is it more that they repect each others competence by the time Passages comes along?

As you might have guessed, DAY is sort of the low point, and after Reparations, things have started to get better. Andra was rather impressed that Hethlin had behaved as chivalrously as she did during Veleda's capture. And Hethlin had finally come to realize the value of what Andrahar was trying to teach her, that his being hard on her wasn't entirely because she was a woman.

Did Eomer/Eowyn ever meet Rahur, I'm wondering if the Rohirim have an opinion on such cute cuddley warhorses?

They probably saw him during the trip up to Edoras-he wasn't put down until Andra's return to Dol Amroth after that. Their opinions would probably have mirrored Imrahil's-he might be a good warhorse in the right hands, but his temperament made him unsuitable for breeding.

Do the Dol-Amroth horses have Meras or Elven blood given Imri has such good ties to all both places?

They have a lot of Rohan blood, but I doubt Mearas, unless one of them took a shine to one of Imri's ancestors.

Does Arwen know how to fight?

In CMC, I wrote that on the first part of the journey to Minas Tirith from Lorien at least, both she and Galadriel went in breeches and were carrying bows. I can see her being a pretty decent archer. I don't see her being a swordswoman.
