5 The Silmarils were crafted by the great smith Feanor. Of which elven kindered was he?
a) The Vanyar.
b) The Teleri.
c) The Noldor.
Answer: c). Feanor was the son of Finwe, first king of the Noldor, or Gnomes as they are called some places. The Noldor are great craftmen, and we can thank them for discovering the gems or we would not have so many juicy jewellries in-game.
In his encounter with the Balrog, Durin's Bane, at the bridge of Khazad-dum, Gandalf says: "I am a servant of the Secret Fire, wielder of the flame of Anor. You cannot pass. The dak fire will not avail you, flame of Udûn." What is this "Secret Fire", "Anor" and "Udûn"?
Answer: Minas Tirith in Gondor was earlier called Minas Anor - the tower of the Sun. Anor is the sindarin name for the Sun.
Udûn is another name for Utumno, Morgoth's great fortress in the north.
The Secret Fire, also known as the Flame Imperishable, is what Eru Iluvatar used to give things life. When the Ainur made the Music of the Ainur, Iluvatar put the Secret Fire in the middle of the void and gave their music life, and thus they had created Ea, the world that is!
