Findegil is a guest of Tom Bombadil.
With the publication of The Children of Húrin we have inroduced some changes in the Narn which also effect the chapter structer. These changes have not been approved, but in the case of the chapter headlines there is no much doubt. I give the chapter structer here in full:
volume 1: THE ELDER DAYS

. The Music of the Ainur
. Here are the words of Pengoloð concerning the Coming of the Valar.

. Of the Valar
. Of the Maiar
. Of the Enemies

Quenta Silmarillion
[Editorial note: For the sake of detail some parts of following text are added from other sources then the ‘Quenta Silmarillion’. These are indicated as seperate entities by a headline of their own and the lake of a chapter number. To avoid redundancy in some places part of the ‘Quenta Silmarillion’ proper were excluded from the text. The chapters thus excluded are given in the list below with the replacements we did take up. Since from the ‘Great Tales’ are only fragments left to us the replacements are often amalgamated from parts of the ‘Great Tale’ and the chapter of the ‘Quetna Silmarillion’.

- 22 Of the Meeting of Beren and Lúthien Tinúviel -> replaced by 'Narn Beren ion Barahir'
- 23 The Quest of the Silmaril -> replaced by 'Narn Beren ion Barahir'
- 24 The Quest of the Silmaril 2 -> replaced in part by 'Narn Beren ion Barahir'
- 28 Of Túrin Turambar or Túrin the Hapless -> replaced by 'Narn e·mbar Hador'
- 29 Of Túrin Turambar or Túrin the Hapless 2 -> replaced by 'Narn e·mbar Hador'
- 30 Of the Ruin of Doriath -> replaced in part by 'Narn e·mbar Hador'
- 31 Of Tuor and the Fall of Gondolin -> replaced by 'Narn e·mbar Hador'

In the case of chapter '30 Of the Ruin of Doriath' we have taken up what could be found of the 'Narn e·mbar Hador' into the body of the chapter of the 'Quenta Silmarillion'.]
