Tolkien Middle-earth Relatives Quiz


Time for our second game for this year's Tolkien Blog Party!  I did something similar a few years ago, but I'll try to make it different enough that it will still be challenging AND so no one can go hunting back through old party posts and cheat off that one.  Mwahaha!

Note: some of these are related by blood, others by marriage.

Submit your answers in the comments, and I'll post the answers and everyone's scores at the end of the week.


1. Eowyn is Eomer's ___________.

2. Prince Imrahil is Boromir's ___________.

3. Legolas is Thranduil's ______________.

4. Frodo is Bilbo's ____________.

5. Celeborn is Galadriel's _________________.

6. Gimli is Oin's _____________.

7. Prince Imrahil is Eomer's ___________________.

8. Bergil is Beregond's ____________________.

9. Bard is Bain's __________________.

10. Galadriel is Arwen's ________________.

  14. Hmm...I don't actually know all of these, and I'm not going to disgrace myself by going and LOOKING THEM UP, gracious. So here are my guesses:

    1. Sister

    4. Cousin (I believe there is some number of cousins a certain number of times removed, but I don't remember it off the top of my head)
    5. Husband
    6. I'm going to say cousin
    7. No idea (for some reason I forgot Prince Imrahil existed? *embarrassed face*)
    8. Son
    9. No idea
    10. I want to say aunt? Or cousin?
