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.
Isabeau: Elphir will in the long run, suffer a bit from being a pale imitation of a very extraordinary man.
That's very thought-provoking. It would be hard to top your Imrahil, certainly. (And I imagine Eldarion might also have some of that in store for him?) I didn't really think about it before, but Elphir is ~67 by the time Imrahil dies. That's a long time to be second in charge - whether he's impatient to implement some of his own ideas or ends up becoming too dependent on Dad.
Thinking of Imrahil's mother, I wonder if his grandmother had even more of the "old blood" in her - it's always seemed a rather drastic drop in lifespan from Angelimir to Adrahil in HoME.
