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.

Denise wrote: I wondered, among other things:

1. When and how does Imrahil learn that Brand knows about his feelings for Heth? It was a bit of a surprise for me when Brand daringly told Imrahil that Heth really does like him, as Imrahil's gentle teasing about Brand's own crush on Heth (early in the story) then seems a bit hypocritical in a way. But maybe they've reached a sort of brotherhood over it, too.

I haven't quite decided that one yet.

2. Why does Heth sit "with enough force to almost slop cider from her mug" at the table with Imrahil and Brand? Was she simply startled by Imrahil's presence, or was she angry about something or trying to avoid him? Is it related to why Imrahil questioned her over who she thought was sitting with Brand? It seemed a bit tense for some reason (or maybe it's just me!), and they'd had such an easy relationship on the Foam-Flyer.

She was simply startled that he was there, and in such a state of's mostly the lack of clothing that rattled her. She's accustomed to seeing Imrahil in full feather as Prince-and he's not had her tending to him in any intimate way whatsoever over the last couple of years.

As long as he has his clothes on, she's fine.

3. How much time has Imrahil actually spent in Dol Amroth during the last two years?

He came back to judge the pirates, and he obviously returned to Minas Tirith for Faramir's wedding and probably stayed for a while. And he probably went back at least one other time for Council. But his original intention of staying completely away from Dol Amroth while Hethlin was training as a Swan Knight fell by the wayside.

4. Is the testing for the esquires going to happen before riding off to Dale?
