legolas and thranduil relationship

My friend and I think that thranduil thinks this when he sees Legolas. do this Legolas and then he. Legolas doesn't exactly have a close relationship with his father and this goes into the demise of his mother. Thranduil has closed himself off. Thranduil's relationship page Legolas is all that is left of Thranduil's beloved wife, as Thranduil as a protective embrace over his son. He extremely heart-broken.

It is unclear how long Elrond and Elros spent with Maglor and Maedhros, but any way you want to turn it, Elrond and Elros came to love those who killed their kin and kidnapped them. Or, if they are wise, they might see it for what it is, ie, a pretty sad screwed up story for all concerned. In any case he was probably not much older than 60, a very young elf, when Gil-galad took him in. We also do not know what happened between Oropher and Gil-galad for Oropher to refuse his authority during the Last Alliance.

Perhaps there were already disagreements between Gil-galad and Oropher on the Isle of Balar or in Lindon before Oropher and Thranduil left for the East. Oropher and Thranduil may well have resented all the Noldor who brought a lot of trouble to their relatively peaceful land. Elrond was always by Gil-galad, who lived in North Lindon. Elrond is of Noldorin culture.

The Silmarillion, Unfinished Tales Elrond spent most of his life utterly surrounded by Noldorin culture, meaning that even though his bloodline is mostly Sindarin and Vanyarin, culturally he is very much Noldorin.

More evidence of this is that he moved his fortress in the Greenwood several times, and one of the reasons is that Galadriel a Noldo was infringing on his territory. At least Gil-galad, Elrond, Celeborn and Galadriel attended Celebrian was also present in Rivendell, but we do not know if she took part in the Council. This is when Elrond was given Vilya and was appointed vice-regent of Eriador. Galadriel kept the ring Celebrimbor had entrusted her with, one was given to Elrond to reinforce Rivendell, the third Gil-Galad kept and gave to Cirdan before the War of the Last Alliance.

However, the threat of Sauron was back and they had to discuss how to protect Middle Earth. If Oropher was not invited, he and Thranduil could also have taken offence at this.

And finally, Oropher and Thranduil may have been angry at the Noldor for having allowed Sauron to forge the rings in the first place.

Ask About Middle Earth

None of this concerns Elrond directly, but it adds to the potential rift between Noldorin and Sindarin elves. There were dozens of thousands of people involved, though, so they may or may not have been in contact. Still, it is possible that when Oropher met Gil-galad if only to disagree with his plansThranduil and Elrond were also present.

Thranduil survived his father and it seems that he continued fighting in the Last Alliance until the very end. This is a time when he could have been in closer contact with Elrond and Gil-galad. It could have been positive: It could also have been negative: Did he know about Isildur keeping the One Ring? Could Elrond or Cirdan have told him, though? Thranduil is more open than Oropher. One of the reasons he chose the Greenwood and to live with the Silvan elves was the desire to get back to a simpler way of life, uncomplicated by Silmarils and Noldor exiles and villains like Morgoth and Sauron.

The Silvans themselves were uninterested in mixing with other people.

See, that’s what the app is perfect for.

I already mentioned Oropher moved away when he realised Galadrielwas in Lorien. Another reason for the move was the dwarf activity in Moria. Oropher moved his fortress several times to get away from them and from the potential trouble they could cause.

He did not have contact with Men either, except for keeping Easterlings at bay. He had a good relationship with the Men of Dale and of Lake-town, as well as with the dwarves of Erebor.

The White Gems of Lasgalen. This is the primary reason why Thranduil marches off to war against the dwarves in The Hobbit though this was mostly cut from the final version of the film. It is directly implied that Legolas's mother died defending him and complicates matters entirely when it comes to Thranduil and Legolas's relationship.

My mother died there. My father does not speak of it. There is no grave, no memory. More than anyone, more than life. While there are scenes throughout the final cut that imply how the death of Mrs.

Thranduil affected both father and son, a cut scene firmly establishes the flaw of Thranduil's original motives in BOTFA.

Those gems weren't all your wife left you, my friend. She left you a son. Tell me, which would she have you value more? It also shows that the death of the late Queen of Mirkwood ultimately was what caused the two to become distant with each other. The Battle of the Five Armies only shows the beginnings of a reconciliation between father and son, not the full resolution.

But from where they leave each other in the film, I can easily believe that by the time the events of Fellowship of the Ring occur, the two have a much better relationship than in The Desolation of Smaug. Moreover, the scene between Legolas and Thranduil at the end was meant to invoke Thranduil seeing greatness within Legolas by using Aragon and his own father, Arathorn as a parallel: His father, Arathorn was a good man.

His son might grow to be a great one. I can understand how much confusion one might feel when Thranduil sends his son to find "a ranger" when in reality, Aragon is only ten years old at the time of The Hobbit and not the older character we meet in the LOTR trilogy.

On a side note,The Hobbit films follows a shorter and more condensed timeline which actually makes Aragon older than in the books. However, by Thranduil sending Legolas to find Aragon, Peter Jackson explains how the elf knew of Aragon's identity during the Council of Elrond when he defends him in front of Boromir: This is no mere ranger!

He is Aragon, son of Arathorn. You owe him your allegiance. Although in the books, there is already a good explanation for how Legolas previously met Aragon. However, this was dropped or not mentioned during the whole run of the LOTR trilogy.

In the books, Gandalf sent Aragon to track down Gollum and hand him over to the elves of Thranduil. Aragon eventually found him and Mirkwood was given the responsibility to watch over Gollum; however, he escaped and it is for that reason Legolas was sent to Rivendell by Thranduil himself.

This could perfectly explain how Aragon could have previously met Legolas, who was probably one of the elves who watched over Gollum.

But this is not mentioned within Fellowship of the Ring, and thus, Jackson had to create a new reason for how Legolas knew of Aragon's identity as the rightful king of Gondor. Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring by J.
