Nope and nope. It was neither Anarion nor Isildur. Think about the hint some more.

Hm.. Herendil.

The former names of Amrod and Amras, the twin sons of Fanor. Damrod's name was later given to one of the men under Faramir's command in Ithilien.

In Tolkien's early writings, who discovered the Vale of Sleep, and what did he find there?

Nuin, the dark elf, who discovered the land of Hildorien before the rising of the Sun and found sleeping forms of mankind and awoke two, Ermon and Elmir and taught them to speak.

No? In that case I will ask one. Who did Galadriel meet at Tharbad on the Greyflood?

Aldarion....

"It is also slated that "no records are now left of the later voyages that Aldarion made," but that "it is known that he went much on land as well as sea, and went up the River Gwathl as far as Tharbad, and there met Galadriel." There is no mention elsewhere of this meeting; but at that time Galadriel and Celeborn were dwelling in Eregion, at no great distance from Tharbad." -UT

ty voronwe....
this is my first question in quiz, so bear with me [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]
Quote:
'So be they,' said Lindo, 'though concerning them Men
tell many strange and garbled tales that are far from the truth,
and many strange names they call them that you will not hear
here', but Vaire said: 'Nay then, Lindo, be not drawn into
more tale-telling tonight, for the hour of rest is at hand, and
for all his eagerness our guest is way-worn. Send now for the
candles of sleep, and more tales to his head's filling and his
heart's satisfying the wanderer shall have on the morrow.'
who is this guest?

well, it's been two weeks and no sign of Orogaerion whatsoever....
to not let this cool quiz become buried in oblivion, let me ask another question then....

who was forced to cast down his golden collar, by whom and to what purpose?

Tevildo, Prince of Cats, by Huan. He was forced to give it up so Tinuviel could use it as a token of his authority to rescue Beren.
