I can play here, too, Michka--I love summer vacation!

This is in the chapter 'Not at Home', when Oin and Gloin light torches so that Bilbo could explore Smaug's lair.
Sing and be glad, all ye children of the West,
for your King shall come again,
and he shall dwell among you
all the days of your life.

So you'll have Internet access on vacation? If so,

Who climbed down out of the trees, with wolves all around, to help Bilbo to safety?

Have a wonderful vacation, Michka!

Il y a un moment que personne n'a essayé de répondre, je crois que tout le monde est débordé à la rentrée. J'attendrai patiemment ce mois -ci qui se termine; en octobre je serai de nouveau sans contact internet pendant les 15 premiers jours: petites vacances en bord de mer, loin de la ''civilsation '' wink \:D/ :flower:

Oh, I can answer! The Arkenstone was entombed with Thorin Oakenshield.

Don't despair of us, Michka! Like Ents, we just have a different pace of answering!

I think I will revive this one .......

Who was the first Ruling Queen of Númenor?
“…..suddenly above him far and faint his song was taken up, and a voice answering called to him. Maedhros it was that sang amid his torment.” The Silmarillion, Chapter 13: Of the Return of the Noldor

Welcome back, Shieldmaiden!

The ONLY queen of Numenor I can remember is Queen Beruthiel and her cats. So that's my first guess, without looking it up.

Nope ... if you'll recall, all of the Kings and Queens of Númenor had names beginning with "Tar ", e.g. Tar-Minyatur was the name Elros chose when he became the first King of Númenor.

A great, quick reference for all characters Tolkien is the Encyclopedia of Arda.
