Silmarillion: The Good Parts Version 16 by spiegelscherben Silmarillion: The Good Parts Version 16 by spiegelscherben
"All princes, no subjects".

I prefer one-off comics where you don't have to know the entire history (or at least have read the rest of the comic to know who those people are), but sometimes you can't avoid them. This chapter is so chock-full of names you really have to take notes to figure out who is who and why they don't like each other.

Original quote:
For Maedhros begged forgiveness for the desertion in Araman; and he waived his claim to kingship over all the Noldor, saying to Fingolfin: 'If there lay no grievance between us, lord, still the kingship would rightly come to you, the eldest here of the house of Finw, and not the least wise.' But to this his brothers did not all in their hearts agree.
[...]
Now King Thingol welcomed not with a full heart the coming of so many princes in might out of the West, eager for new realms; and he would not open his kingdom, nor remove its girdle of enchantment, for wise with the wisdom of Melian he trusted not that the restraint of Morgoth would endure.

I have to just say that I like ruddy-faced Caranthir. So much.

Fanor's sons, Fingolfin and Fingon, and Finrod coming by in the third panel. Pretty much a who's who of house Finw. :D

Oh, yes. ^^; I'm not that versed anymore, it's years ago I read the Silmarillion. But thanks for telling me. :)

Oh dear, I should reread the relevant parts. I can't remember who's the one who built a kingdom near the sea...
Also, who is the one holding Galadriel's hand? Is it supposed to be Finrod?

It's Finrod.
And that's not Galadriel, it's Melian and Thingol who wonder why all those people came here and who made THEM kings :)

(as I was saying. This is a chapter where you really need that family tree next to the book...)

Ahhhh... I forgot this one. I keep imagining Melian as black haired, this blonde elleth is automatically Galadriel for me. :)
But now I see you point. :evillaugh:
