    I believe the answer to your riddle would be the Great Horn of Gondor, fashioned from a prized wild oxen, passed on through the Stewards of Gondor, and later cleaved in two by the White Hand Orcs?

    Excellent! A new riddle:

    A fruit stolen from the fair, and born unto a new land.
    Once more destroyed, twice died.
    Still it survived to see the dawn of a new day.

    What am I?

    My guess would be;
    The White Tree of Gondor
    Stolen as a fruit by Isuldur from Nimloth the Fair, the White Tree of Númenor
    Then destroyed by a sudden attack from Sauron on Minas Ithil but Isuldur escaped with a sapling and planted it in Minas Arnor
    This tree died during the great plague, but again a sapling was rescued and planted by King Tarondor. This one died (second death) together with the ruling Stewart Belechtor II.
    Finally a sapling from the tree was found again by Aragorn upon the slopes of Mindolluin and this one was used to replace the last dead tree, and the fourth age could finally start ;-)

    Oh, oh I think I know this one - The White Tree of Gondor!
    Isildur stole of fruit from Nimloth in the Numenor before the downfall & brought it to Gondor, and although it died with the line of kings ended, Aragorn found a seedling in the mountains

    You both have it right Melde & conamir, but conamir will get the chance to post the next riddle as he got the answer in first (and that is a great explanation as well!).

    Melde, I think since conamir hasn't posted a riddle in about a week, you could post one if you get yours up first

    Wow, the holiday ended just in time ;-)
    I'm back and here's the riddle (hope it is not to easy, I wanted it to rhyme (a little));

    There are two of me,
    But the first I shall be.

    They came from the east,
    I was victorious but later deceased.

    For Pelendur I set the stage,
    And so created Hurins age.

    Who am I (given name or taken name, both are considered correct)?

    Good thing you got your riddle posted in time conamir! Someone was trying to give your spot away...

    For an answer to your riddle, how about Faramir, son of King Ondoher of Gondor? His death, along with his brother’s, meant that Pelendur became Ruling Steward for a time while the next King of Gondor was chosen. And of course we all know of a second Faramir that came a few hundred years later.

    Close (in ideas, not in time), but not correct. But I do like the reasoning. And don't forget the east part ;-)

    I had thought that my answer of Faramir fit most of your riddle really well, but the victorious part I wasn't too sure about. After reviewing some more Gondorian history, I think the answer you are looking for instead is Rómendacil I, the 8th King of Gondor.

    Indeed Faramir did fit really well (in a next riddle I will do more research, to prevent this kind of things ;-)
    But to the point; Rómendacil I is the correct answer!
    And now for something completely different!! A short explanation of the riddle;
    There are two of me,
    But the first I shall be.

    There where 2 Rómendacil's the eigth King of Gondor and the nineteenth king of Gondor, so I wanted the first one

    They came from the east,
    I was victorious but later deceased.

    Rómendacil means east-victor, the given name of Rómendacil I was Tarostar, he took the name Rómendacil after finally defeating the Easterlings in TA 500 (the same reason Rómendacil II took his name). But in 541 he battled the easterlings again and was slain.

    For Pelendur I set the stage,
    And so created Hurins age.

    Pelendur was a ruling steward of Gondor and from him onward, the title became hereditary. So the ruling "age"of the House of Hurin started there. But Rómendacil I founded the office of steward of Gondor, so setting the stage ready for Pelendur.

    So, enough from me, the stage is all yours again Wilros :-)

    A very good riddle conamir, and as I said the victorious part of the riddle made my guess of Faramir not seem correct, so I wouldn’t worry about having done more research for this one.

    I will post the next riddle, though I feel it is not very polished:

    I stick out like a thumb,
    Warred over by 3 brothers in years past.
    Stronghold and stone,
    Nearby the wraiths attacked at last.

    Amon Sûl, Weathertop. The three brothers would be Arthedain, Cardolan and Rhudaur.

    Yup, pretty straight forward. For those who have only seen the movie version of LOTR, note that in the books, the attack of the Nazgul that wounded Frodo took place not on top of Weathertop, but in a small vale next to it, which is why my riddle mentions the wraiths attacking nearby.

    You're up Urwendil.

    Melde, I think since Urwendil hasn't posted a riddle in almost a month, you could post one since you where the last correct answer giver (is that english?) who didn't get a chance to post a riddle :-)

    Nice one!

    Alrighty.


    Caught without a voice
    From the land, yet flying high
    Mid-stride, without a choice
    In a color that is not mine

    I lead the army into war
    I am controlled by the wind
    I can be torn by spear or sword
    With smaller spear, I can mend

    By irony paramount,
    By my real self I can be borne
    I am loyalty to king and crown
    When kingdom falls, I am torn
