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.
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
Yes, I think that's very true. Also, as was mentioned earlier in this thread, Nimrien is one of the few women of Imrahil's class and acquaintance who knows him -- really knows him -- and is not afraid to take him to task or call a spade a spade with him. To someone like Imrahil, who is very self-confident and strong and witty but also has a conscious and cares about how he affects other people, that kind of relationship would be invaluable. He doesn't need someone who is in awe of him, he needs someone who truly knows him. That's what will allow him to stay sane and focused and rule well. I think once she realizes that, Nimrien will see that in supporting Imrahil she is supporting her country.
