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.

I think that Nimrien is already worried about Finduilas' behavior, but she is going to spend a few months in Dol Amroth, and during that time will make what seems to be a definite recovery. This seeming recovery seems to me to be essential to explain why her father and brother didn't see her death coming.

Planning a wedding would certainly distract even someone as tenacious as Nimrien. And Denethor would not be there, and Finduilas would be back by the sea that she loves... Yes, I could easily see her depression from Denethor's abuse temporarily lifting. Isn't it also common for people to have an even stronger relapse when returning to the unchanged situation which caused their depression in the first place? It would be ironic if a happy time in Dol Amroth actually made her see how bleak her life in Minas Tirith had become, and ended up hastening her death...

The better you let us know Nimrien, the more clearly I can see how she is a women where "the blood of Numenor runs deep and true" (despite her height!). It makes it very believable that Imrahil could end up loving two such opposite-seeming women, as the differences are in the end mostly superficial.
