Eregion [In reply to] Can't Post

I donīt exactly know what Tolkiens final version was in respect to that. But I like the version in which Galadriel was co ruler of Eregion, it would give her a place in history, I mean we hardly hear of her and it would match with her need for founding her own realm. True, if she indeed was the boss there one might not understand why she allowed Annatar there, but maybe the wishes of her subjects were the reason and if the majorty of the people want Annatar there, I think she accept that, maybe even a sort of democracy to some degree.
She wanted to rule, but never wanted to suppress the elves. She hardly has a choice, if the majority is for his staying, then kicking him out is dangerous, she knew it, for it could easily to to some kind of rebellion or at least displeasure, she was no dictator and not really the queen of the Noldor.
Compare it to Elrond, say there is an elf he has doubts about but the majority of his household likes that elf very much and wants him/her to stay, do you think that he would kick that elf out of Rivendell?
I doubt the isolation in Lorien was the way of living Galadriel preferred, but it obviously was the wish of the inhabits, so she alligned to that. Being a good ruler is to respect the wishes and needs of the subjects and not only to pursure her/his own wishes, maybe Galadriel saw it similar.

Is there any proof that Tolkien abandoned his idea for Galadriel being the founder of Eregion? Which version was earlier? Celebrimbor being the lord or Galadriel the lady? I usually prefer the latest versions.
