Tolkien trivia question and answer #31

Yesterday’s trivia question was: Who died in battle in the 252nd year of his life? The answer is: Dain Ironfoot.

Today’s question is: “Which king of Gondor rebuilt Minas Anor and began the custom of living in it during the summer?” Answer tomorrow.

The original blog post on this trivia feature is here.

  • Wasn’t that the original name of Minas Tirith?  If so, it was built by Anarion, the brother of Isildur.

    I can’t remember where Anarion stayed in the summers, as I was very young during the end of the Second Age!

    And I know there is supposed to be an accent mark on Anarion’s name, but my usual shortcuts don’t work here.

  • Of course, if I had actually read the question, I would have seen that it said REbuilt.

    That was Ostoher, at the beginning of the Third Age.

    Shucks, and other comments.
