Second Age mistory (mist plus history) [In reply to] Can't Post


Quote
I know Elrond and Gil-Galad didnīt trust him to, but I think in respect to Galadriel it was more explicit, something like that he beared her scorn with outward patience and that Sauron percieved at once that she would be his chief obstacle and of course her mistrust of Saruman.




I think Tolkien had a slight problem here, and in my opinion to try and fix it he abandoned Galadriel as the co-founder and co-ruler of Eregion. Christopher Tolkien noted:




Quote
[No explanation is offered in this rapid outline of why Galadriel scorned Sauron, unless she saw through his disguise, or of why, if she did perceive his true nature, she permitted him to remain in Eregion.]




I think Tolkien scrapped this notion and made Celebrimbor a Feanorean and Lord of Eregion. He can be cozened by Annatar, but Gil-galad was not, and... well if I am correct I don't really know what Tolkien was going to do with Galadriel in Eregion when Annatar arrived, but not being its ruler was a start perhaps, which (if so) probably meant the Mirdain would not have had to revolt against Galadriel and Celeborn as rulers.

Just my opinion. Sorry to interrupt. Carry on.


And I'm getting the impression that you might be a Galadriel fan Nerven. Possibly ;)
