Excellent. Then I will allow someone else to figure out which were right and wrong and attempt to get the whole test completed.

Oh, I'll have a go my ownself then . . .


1. What was the capital of Rohan? Edoras?

Actually, it was Aldburg, in the Folde. Edoras IS, Aldburg WAS. Though Edoras became the seat of Kings when Eorl's son Brego built it, Aldburg is recorded as the original home of Eorl himself. Nit picking, I know . . .

2. What was the name of the great feast-hall there? Meduseld, or The Golden Hall

** 3. From what steed were the Mearas, the greatest horses of Rohan, said to be descended? Nahar, the white steed of Oromë

4. What was the usual hair-colour of the Rohirrhim, and what name did the Dunlendings give them because of this? Light in color and they were called Strawheads or (sic)Forgil by the Dunlendings.

(actually it's spelled Forgoil) ;)

5. Who was the first King of Rohan? Eorl

6. At what battle did Eorl and his riders come to aid the army of Gondor against Balchoth and orcs? Battle of the Field of Celebrant

** 7. Whose words had turned King Theoden into a wizened old man? Saruman Well, only in the movie. In the books, it’s the whisperings of Grima Wormtongue (and possibly some poisonous drugs) that entrap Théoden.

8. What gift did Gandalf ask of Theoden? Shadowfax

** 9. Whose arrival changed the course of the Battle of Helm's Deep? The Ents, with the Huorns of Fanghorn forest.

** 10. Who led the Rohirrhim through Druadan Forest? The Drúedain actually aided Theoden and led both him and his Rohirrim through the Drúadan Forest in Anórien on their ride to aid Minas Tirith.


Howzat??

Sounds all great to me SilverScribe. I know that Ayslhyn should be confirming this but let's start a countdown and let the Scribe do the next quiz if we do not hear something official, alright?
