Princes of Dol Amroth

By:Isabeau
 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.


Comment:
Another thought, based on Isabeau's 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.

Imrahil also shows in Ultimatums that he has no problem asking for her assistance and/or advice (when he's sitting in judgement on court cases, as well as in Pelargir). Thus, with him she does have some outlet for her intellect too. Being an at-need researcher and a sounding board for her husband is not exactly the same as being asked to sit on a ruling council, of course, but probably the closest thing possible for a woman in Gondor, and certainly qualifies for Rebecca's a) & b) above...
