Gil-Galad was an elven king,
Of him the harpers sadly sing:
the last whose realm was fair and free
between the mountains and the sea.
His sword was long, his lance was keen,
His shining helm afar was seen:
The countless stars of heaven's field
Where mirrored in his silver shield.
But long ago he rode away,
And where he dwelleth none can say.
For into darkness fell his star
in Mordor where the shadows are.

Much better than the movie Gil-Galad! He made me cringe when I saw him! :stab:

I love his face, this looks much more like him, thank you! :love:

Good Drawing ^^ I like the way you see Gil-Galad, now I'll have an picture in my head while I'm reading my Tolkien's books ! :)

Did you made the poetry too ? or you've take it in a tolkien book ?

It's Tolkien's, called "The Fall of Gil-galad."

I hate the way movie Gil-galad looks (yes, for the full 3 seconds you see him).

The one at the end ? I though it was maybe Glorfindel, but I think you're correct.

Uhm, no. You see him in The Fellowship of the Ring during the fight with Sauron (he's beside Elrond) and when the three elven rings of power are mentioned.

I thought that was Glorfindel at the end next to Elrond as well. <3

As far as I know Gil-galad never came back from the halls of Mandos.
