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.
Nimrien seems to be one of the only women his age and status who would support him lovingly, but also tell him when he's being an idiot. I don't think it would take much to bring Nimrien around to accepting the uncomfortable burden of planning/dealing with court happenings, if Imrahil points out how much he needs her in this way - especially if she truly loves Imrahil to boot. And she would have Tirathiel to continue helping her.
I completely agree with Denise about Nimrien coming around. As Isabeau said above, she would probably have made an excellent university professor. As someone in an academic environment (not a prof yet though) I can say that in order to be a good professor one not only needs to be a good scholar (Nimrien: check), one also needs to be perceptive about others' strengths and weaknesses, in order to help them along. Nimrien's got that too. But those skills would also serve her well as Princess of Dol Amroth, and while she might find the social obligations tiresome (as many professors do, every year at graduation for example!) if she believed that a) she was doing meaningful, valuable work, and b) was helping someone she loved to do meaningful, valuable work, she'd take it all in stride.
And she'd have Tirathiel!
