1. Final Fates
Strong they were and without peer
Mighty Elves and princes fair
Always together as a pair.
Great were their deeds in the War of the Ring
Of their part warriors will gladly sing
Bravely they road with the Company from the North
Swift and deadly in battle they came forth.
But when Elrond their father departed forever
In his place they stood but replaced never
For the sons of the riven dell would not their home forsake
But the place of high Elven lords was not their path to take.
Of their final fate is a subject few can tell
But none will believe their fate is to be one fell
Tales of a journey to foreign shores are told
Where perhaps new journeys and stories will unfold.
--From the papers of Barahir, grandson of Faramir, Steward of Gondor, and Prince of Ithilien
Archivist’s Note: This poem was not dated, so it is unknown when it was written. The true fate of the brothers of the Queen Undómiel is also one clouded in mystery. Amongst the seaside ports stories are told of two Elves building a ship. There is, however, no physical evidence of these tales.
