Geopolitics at the end of the Second Age

Ch. 1: Geopolitics at the end of the Second Age

Finally getting a chance to read this--

Very interesting, especially the analysis of the role of the Valar.  I'm glad to see the piece was recently updated.

I have noticed that while Numenoreans regularly sailed east and Tolkien describes the Teleri of Tol Eressëa coming openly to Numenor before the rise of the King's Men . . . never, after the colonization of Numenor, is there a mention of any ships of Lindon going to that isle.  Gil-Galad sent messages to Tar-Meneldur by Aldarion, not his own mariners.  Why, do you think, this might be?

Cheers--

Wow.  This article clarified and analysed Second Age politics very well.  It was also easy for someone with no background in politics or history (like me!) to read and to understand.  Thank you very much!
