"the battle of the Valar"[edit source]

So does anyone know or have a guess as to whether "the battle of the Valar" mentioned in The Lord of the Rings is meant to reference this conflict? Or is it thought/known to be a reference to the Battle of the Powers? Aeglos (talk) 04:57, 24 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I don't have a digital copy at hand for a string search. Can you paste the relevant part? Sage (talk) 20:21, 24 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
"After him thundered the knights of his house, but he was ever before them. Eomer rode there, the white horsetail on his helm floating in his speed, and the front of the first eored roared like a breaker foaming to the shore, but Theoden could not be overtaken. Fey he seemed, or the battle-fury of his fathers ran like new fire in his veins, and he was borne up on Snowmane like a god of old, even as Orome the Great in the battle of the Valar when the world was young."-The Return of the King, emphasis added
