Tolkien trivia question and answer #34

Yesterday’s trivia question was “Who were the peredhil, and what choice were they given?” The answer is “Elros and Elrond, the “half-elven” (Peredhil), the sons of Earendil and Elwing; they were given the choice of belonging either to the race of Elves or the race of Men.”

Today’s question is “What swords were forged from meteoric iron?” Answer on Monday.

  • Anglachel and Gurthang were the two swords forged from meteoric metal by Eöl the Dark Elf of Nan Elmoth.

  • After a brief, but spirited argument, I will concede that my brother Craig is correct.

    Anguirel is the name of the second meteoric sword forged by Eöl the Dark Elf.

    Anglachel is the name of the other one, but in my defense, Gurthang is what Anglachel was renamed by Túrin after it was reforged in Nargothrond.
