I'm writing MA thesis on Tolkien's elves and stuck with the statement:
"Thranduil, father of Legolas and a Sindarin Elf, is described as having blond hair in The Hobbit (...)"
Where in The Hobbit? Could anyone provide a quotation? I've searched the book through and cannot find it... I'd be most greatful for any help, thanks.—Unsigned comment by User:Calilmal (talk • contribs).
- It's "Golden" in "Flies and Spiders":
The feast that they now saw was greater and more magnificent than before; and at the head of a long line of feasters sat a woodland king with a crown of leaves upon his golden hair, very much as Bombur had described the figure in his dream.
 In or out
I'm not very keen on keeping the "inside the legendarium"-tone of this article. Especially the discussion about Elvish ears would benefit from a more academic tone ("It has been argued by...", "In letter X, Tolkien...", etc). Any thoughts? --Morgan 19:47, 15 February 2012 (UTC)
- At the moment it seems to be confused between whether it's in or out of the legendarium. I think that it should go out.-- 00:17, 16 February 2012 (UTC)
