Talk:Maeglin

[edit] Which Kindred of Elves?

Does anyone know whether Maeglin was considered a Sindar or a Noldor? His father was a Sindar, and I think the kindred is based on the paternal line, but his mother was of Noldor nobility. Anyone willing to hazard a guess? --Ebakunin 13:12, 29 June 2006 (EDT)

Well, since it can be assumed he took after his father, I would guess him to be a Sindar. However, he did dwell in a Noldorin stronghold, was a close relative to the king, and was considered one of the Noldorin princes. From that viewpoint I would guess him a Noldo. It can go either way, I guess. --Narfil Palùrfalas 17:58, 29 June 2006 (EDT)
