Discussing: Thranduil and Celeborn

Thranduil and Celeborn

Does anyone actually know what happened between Celeborn and Thranduil to make them be on not so good speaking terms?

Or is it all because of the whole Galadriel and Celeborn interferring with Oropher's things?



Re: Thranduil and Celeborn

It's not actually stated anywhere that Celeborn and Thranduil had any sort of rivalry, or that they didn't like each other. This seems to be another fanon concept on behalf of Evil Thranduil -he doesn't get along with Celeborn and he hates Elrond to death because Oropher died in the war.

What we know is that both of them are rather reclusive (as in not interested in intimate bonds with other groups) and very protective of their people and realms. While Thranduil was busy trying not to be evicted from his kingdom, Celeborn and Galadriel were busy keeping Lothlórien a secret from the world. It's only natural that they wouldn't feel the need to be close, to have their people mingling too much or to have their doors open at all times, like Elrond did.

Sure, there are grudges they could hold on to from the times of Oropher, but it's nothing dramatic. There seems to be a wave of mutual indiference between Celeborn and Thranduil, a distancing from things that didn't hit right home. As far as I can remember, they didn't have a particular dislike for each other, they were simply always too busy to care.
