**FD Party: A Kingly Puzzle! Can't Post

Welcome, one and all, to TORn's Founders' Day Celebration!

How well do you know your Middle-earth Kings?

I've scrambled the names of ten of those mentioned in LotR, and given you clues as to their identity. This should be easy, so - CLOSED BOOK!

(Oh, all right, peek if you REALLY need to! Laugh)


1. Of him the harpers sadly sing: DALLIGAG

2. King under the Mountain: DINA

3. "Longshanks": ROARNAG

4. Lúthien was his daughter: LONGHIT

5. "Horse-master": MEERO

6. King of Dale: DRNAB

7. Last king of a cursed people: GONEFEDTHAKID (4 words)

8. King of the Elves of Northern Mirkwood: DARNIHULT

9. Bearer of Narsil: LEDLINE

10. "Dotard": HOTNEED

(Remember - no answers in the subject line! Smile)

Fun scrambles! [In reply to] Can't Post

I got quite distracted from unscrambling - your intent, I'm sure! Now I'm picturing Aragorn shouting at his horse, the King of the Dead leaving out treats for children, lightfingered Brand learning tricks from a certain burglar and all the shieldmaidens squealing over Theoden :)
