Professor Rashbold was a Man living in the 20th century England.

History[edit]

Rashbold transliterated and translated the Edwin Lowdham's manuscript on the behest of Michael George Ramer. The text was in Old English written in Tengwar. It described the Downfall of Númenor.[1]

He was described by Lowdham as a "grumpy old bear".[1]

Inspiration[edit]

The name Rashbold is a pun on J.R.R. Tolkien's own surname, being a translation from German Toll-kühn (meaning "foolhardy").[2][3]
