The Silmarillion aesthetic | Elu Thingol | King of Doriath, The Hidden King

He was the founder and first King of the northern Elven Kingdom of Doriath and was respected by all the Sindar of the Beleriand, who considered him to be the High King of the Sindar and the Lord of Beleriand.


‘..for fair and noble as he had been, now he appeared as it were a lord
of the Maiar, his hair as grey silver, tallest of all the Children of
Ilúvatar; and a high doom was before him.’

Me: What’s the difference between Hurin carrying the Nauglamir and a football team that has made 3 attempts to score a touchdown from 10 yards away?

My dad: I don’t know, what?

Me: One is for Thingol, and the other is fourth and goal. 

My dad: Did you make me read the Silmarillion just to tell me that joke?

Of Thingol and Melian 

Melian sat long in silence beside Thingol the King, and her thought
passed back into the starlit years and to their first meeting among the
nightingales of Nan Elmoth in ages past.

The Silmarillion aesthetic | King Elu Thingol


A King there was in days of old:
ere men yet walked upon the mould
his power was reared in cavern’s shade,
his hand was over glen and glade […]
Of silver grey his crown was wrought,
the starlight in his banners caught ;
and silver thrilled his trumpets long
beneath the star in challenge strong ;
enchantment did his realm enfold,
where might and glory, wealth untold,
he wielded from his ivory throne
in many pillared halls of stone.

(The Geste of Beren and Lúthien
by J.R.R.Tolkien)
