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:
Isabeau, this is absurdly obscure, but it's one of those things that's stuck firmly in my mind and I can't seem to find the answer myself. In the start of Ch. 10 Kin-Strife, teenage Imrahil references a "young Lord Husayn" when talking about Haradrim court stuff. Husayn's name seemed so familiar that I was sure he'd shown up prominently in another story of yours, but I can't find him anywhere obvious. Am I imagining things?

Also, later in the chapter, Imrahil references starting his Swan Knight training upon his return to Dol Amroth. I think he is 16 at this point. But K-S starts when he and Andrahar are 19? And it seems like both of them still have a year of training left when Imrahil gets sent off to sea. So, since Heth's training is set to be only two years long, does the length of training vary by how young/experienced an esquire is when starting the program? It would make sense - I could especially see a 16-year-old needing more time to reach his full strength and get some extra maturity for the high level of performance expected of Swan Knights.
