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.
Ultimatums, ch. 6
"Thank you, Imri, for asking me to help with this."
"Why would I not?" His obvious surprise won him another thoughtful look.
"Many men would not. They would say that a woman should tend to her sewing."
Has Nimrien made any experiences with such men? She seems personally affected. Or is this a more general observation?
I think it is a more general observation. She's a woman of intellect whom I don't think has much of an outlet for that intellect. Adrahil respects her intelligence, but as a woman of good, even if impoverished family, she's expected to basically stay at home and be a nurturer. And I think she feels a little stifled by that at times.
Now since I'm also pretty sure that one of her big objections to marrying Imrahil is that she doesn't feel comfortable imagining herself as Princess of Dol Amroth, I'm going to have to find a way to resolve those conflicting issues of hers. I think she would have made an excellent university professor or something like that, but such a role is not available to her.
