Talk:Ring-bearers

[edit] Bearer

I think we should define a 'ring-bearer' as someone who actually wore the ring. This would see Déagol removed from the list.-- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  10:42, 1 February 2013 (UTC)

Actually having held the Ring is sufficient enough. Otherwise, Sam would be excluded from this list as well.--BalrogTrainer 05:35, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
Sam wore the Ring for a day - he got into Cirith Ungol by wearing the Ring. --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 10:43, 1 September 2014 (UTC)

[edit] Gimli

Gimli did not try to destroy the Ring in the book. Notwithstanding that, it would not make it worthy of this list. Do not add Gimli to this article again. --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 17:43, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

By this logic, shouldn't Boromir also be removed? He merely held the chain to which it was attached. Plus, I don't think he did it in the book anyway.--BalrogTrainer 05:35, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
Yes. --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 10:42, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
