Hi! I'm KingAragorn and I was born in J.R.R. Tolkien's home city of Birmingham, United Kingdom. I'm fascinated by the entirety of Tolkien's works and therefore I can't really pinpoint any specific areas of interest. However as Locations Supervisor I am interested in ensuring that we have high-standard articles for every location mentioned in Tolkien's works. I am proud to have initiated Tolkien Gateway's meetings, something which has proved essential in getting important and long-term decisions made.
