On Our Minds
Long ago, when the world was young About ten, fifteen years ago I read a fic about the Queens of Gondor, and I find myself wanting to re-read it. However, I can't find it anywhere online can anyone out there help me out? I offer fic as payment?
And, to answer your question, Vinyarion is the birth name of Hyarmendacil II, like Vinitharya is the birth name of Eldacar, and Minalcar is the birth name of Rómendacil II. Eldacar's birth name (Vinitharya) is from the language of the Northmen, like his mother Vidumavi, but after the ugliness of the Kin-strife, I'm really pretty sure Hyarmendacil's birth name had to be a plain-vanilla Gondorian name.
And I think the Kin-strife would be a fascinating era to write fanfic for!
On to Minardil....
I'm on hold on the phone right now, so can't answer your question at the moment, BUT....
If you can hold on a few hours, I will try to post the family tree in the Kings of Gondor entry this evening. That would probably cover most of your questions at a glance (birth names like Vinyarion are included). (I'll put the Kings entry on the front page.)
And yes, I am working on what's-his-name's entry....
Oops, gotta go....
...and along the same lines, King Hyarmendacil II- what was going on there? Aldamir and Minardil were the sons of Eldacar, but where does Vinyarion spring from?
(And why do I always pick the most complicated eras to fanfic in?)
I'll be at home tomorrow, and will try to add Valacar then. I also have notes about the various kings, so may be able to pull something together for Minardil pretty quickly.
By et al, do you mean the Kings of Gondor? Any other specific ones you are interested in? Every time I try to update/add bios for all the Kings (of Gondor or Arnor and its successors) or Stewards, I run out of time or energy long before I finish..... *sigh*
