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.
Isabeau wrote: he older sons were very much afraid that they would be disowned in favor of the slave-boy. It would have been difficult, but not impossible to do. And the oldest one had been born when Isfhandijar was sixteen or seventeen-he was beginning to think he'd not live to see dear old Dad pop off. So they killed two birds with one stone.
Talk about bastards! I was afraid that's what had happened. I guess Andrahar's mother was too naive to perceive the danger posed by her master's legitimate sons? Does Andrahar know that his brothers killed his father? It would be an interesting conundrum for such an honor-based society: how could a fatherless son avenge the death of his father at the hands of his acknowledged sons? And yet wouldn't there be some onus on him to do so, if he knew about his half-brothers' treachery?
