Strange, though, that Gimilzor hadn't ordered to get rid of both babies, considering that, girl or not, Miriel still had the right to the Crown.
According to the customs of late Númenor, I (as well as Inziladûn himself) doubt very much that she does. The legitimating identification between monarch and guardian god is rendered impossible by her gender. And then, there´s the precedent (the traitor Alissha).
Also I liked Gimilzor being so "normal" while holding his granddaughter. There is not much that would shake his resolve, it seems.
No, he´s finally reaching his goal of perfection. : ( )
Thanks for the great chapter, Maeve.
Oh, no, thanks to you for reviewing, you rule!
