#AtoZChallenge: Celeborn

03 Apr

C (1)

For this one I went with Celeborn. He has got to be one of the most elusive Elves in Middle-Earth. Not a lot is known about him. We know he was married to Lady Galadriel and the father of Lord Elrond’s wife. He was a Grey-eleven lord and kinsman to King Thingol. He had stayed in Rivendell for a while with Lord Elrond’s sons before deciding to leave. Β No one knows how long he stayed before leaving Middle-Earth and sailing from the Grey Havens. Lady Galadriel Β had left at the end of the Third Age without him.

Look forward to your comments about this character and who your favorite ones might be. πŸ™‚

    Loving your theme. I thought about doing the same kind of thing only with Harry Potter. Maybe next year though. Great post πŸ™‚

    So he’s a bit of a mystery then? Wonder what he had left to do that he let Galadriel leave without him?

      Yes, he is. I think the mystery about him is what made me choose him. So many of the characters are mysterious but at least we know a little about why they stayed behind if they were an elf or what happened to them. πŸ™‚

    As someone who has no idea bout your subjects, I’m finding it doubly interesting.I may even be tempted to delve deeper!

    Haven’t read the series, but I liked his character in the movie. The actor, of which I will not butcher his last name, is a favorite of mine as well. Loved him in XXX.

      Cool. Need to add XXX to my list of movies to watch. πŸ™‚

    Proper cloak and dagger guy, this elf! He sounds like he might have had an interesting spin off story.

    Sounds like there’s room for someone to spin a side story here.

      I would definitely read it. He was a mysterious one but aren’t all elves mysterious he just happened to more so than most. πŸ™‚

    You write about him so eloquently. I had to read your post twice. Your writing makes me want to grab the book and learn more. Thanks for widening my horizons this morning.

    I always wondered about his character. And elves don’t seem to have particular attachment to their spouses, do they?

    • Diane Riggins

      04/03/2015 at 9:47 pm

      He is an interesting character. Most elves put on an appearance of being aloof and think they are above everyone else and that attitude could carry over to their attachments to their spouses. I think that’s why they are so mysterious.:)

    Celeborn IS elusive. I am not up on him, really. I know Galadriel pretty well, though. She’s something else. I had to consult my list of topics that I am planning to use for next year, since I didn’t do the Tolkien them this year. My choice for C was Cirith Ungol.

    But Celeborn is a mighty fine choice, and this is a wonderful post.

    • Diane Riggins

      Yeah he is. He’s mentioned a few times and I had to go to the Tolkien companion to get some more info on him. Cirith Ungol is a great choice as well. Glad you enjoyed the post. πŸ™‚

    Good choice! I always felt he was somewhat reserved, maybe more focused on elven things than interaction with the Nine.

      Thanks. Yes, he was. From everything I read about him. He was a very high ranking elf.
