Elladan and Elrohir Can't Post

What ever happened to them? Did they die as mortals? They certainly weren't on the ship that Elrond took:


"At the end of the First Age the Valar gave to the Half-elven an irrevocable choice to which

kindred they would belong. Elrond chose to be of Elven-kind, and became a master of

wisdom. To him therefore was granted the same grace as to those of the High Elves that still

lingered in Middle-earth: that when weary at last of the mortal lands they could take ship

from the Grey Havens and pass into the Uttermost West; and this grace continued after the

change of the world. But to the children of Elrond a choice was also appointed: to pass with

him from the circles of the world; or if they remained to become mortal and die in Middleearth."

From the Appendixes

Tolkien's not telling [In reply to] Can't Post

Per Tolkien's Letters, # 153:

Elrond passes Over Sea. the end of his sons, Elladan and Elrohir, is not told: they delay their choice, and remain for a while.
