Legolas Greenleaf Sagot

Hobbitgal said:
I read that they had estimated his age at 2893 years old when they made the movie, making his petsa of birth only about a hundred years after the first War of the Ring. I don't know if that's really the case, but that's the age I think of him as now.

Here is very good essay about Legolas. His age is unknown because Tolkien never wrote how old Legolas is.

yeah, but that would make him older than Elrond. Also, his father Thranduil would have been about 6000 at the beginning of the fourth age, making Legolas older than he is. The reason I put 2100 is there is no record of Legolas before the Last Alliance. So he has to be younger than 3000. I am leaving 900 years because I dont think Thranduil was married at the time of the Last Alliance and so I am leaving 900 years for courting and marriage.

If Orli was 16 in LOTR Elijah would have to be 12 because he was born in 1981 and Orli 1977. Elijah was 19 in LOTR so Orli had to be 23.

Orli was 22 in the Fellowship of the Ring movie.

I don't think Tolkien ever mentioned his actual age did he? I just know that at least in the book he was older than 500.

What Is Legolas' Age? My Guess: Almost Certainly Less Than 2000 Tolkien never sagot this question. That hasn't stopped fans -- including me! -- from guessing. 'Many long lives of men it is since the golden hall was built.' 'Five hundred times have the red leaves fallen in Mirkwood my tahanan since then,' sinabi Legolas, "and but a little while does that seem to us." (The King of the Golden Hall, TTT) 'It [Fangorn] is very, very old,' sinabi the Elf. 'So old that I almost feel young again, as I have not felt since I journeyed with you children. It is old and full of memory.' (The White Rider, TTT) The first of these two mga panipi again has the generalizing "we" problem; is Legolas simply speaking as a member of a long-lived race which is used to seeing time in this fashion, or is he speaking from personal experience? If the latter, he can't be younger than five hundred years old. On the other hand, the segundo quote may imply that he felt young before he started traveling with the Fellowship, making him old sa pamamagitan ng human standards (500+) but young compared to other Elves. fans of Peter Jackson's films have an answer to the age question, but it's not from anything Tolkien wrote: "As for Legolas," adds Orlando Bloom," he has seen the world. He is incredibly experienced in many ways. Mind you, he should be - after all, he is 2,931 years old!" (p. 44, LOTR Offical Movie Guide sa pamamagitan ng Brian Sibley) FergoBaggins of the Council of Elrond pagtitip. shrewdly pointed out that this figure matches the taon in which Aragorn was born. But in the writings of Tolkien himself, we've found no explicit references to Legolas' age or personal history prior to the War of the Ring. To answer this tanong madami fully, we must turn to Legolas' recollections and his family history. This approach is problematic, since we can't tell when he's speaking about incidents that happened far away while he was alive, or when he's speaking about events he only knows through the songs and legends of his people. (Note: S.A. = segundo Age, which began with Morgoth's defeat and the sinking of Beleriand, and ended with the Last Alliance of Men and Elves about 3000 years later. T.A. = Third Age, which began when Isildur cut the Ring from Sauron's finger. Frodo's quest begins in T.A. 3018.) When the Fellowship is crossing the Misty Mountains, Gandalf and Legolas discuss the Elves of Hollin (Eregion), who lived outside the Gates of Moria in the segundo Age: 'There is a wholesome air about Hollin. Much evil must befall a country before it wholly forgets the Elves, if once they dwelt there.' 'That is true,' sinabi Legolas. 'But the Elves of this land were of a race strange to us of the silvan folk, and the trees and the damo do not now remember them: Only I hear the stones lament them: "deep they delved us, fair they wrought us, high they builded us; but they are gone." They are gone. They sought the Havens long ago.' (The Ring Goes South, FOTR) Legolas' family passed over the Misty Mountains to sumali the Silvan elves "before the building of Barad-dûr" (Tale of Years, Appendix B, ROTK) which was begun in S.A. 1000 and finished in S.A. 1600. Eregion (Hollin) was founded S.A. 750. So depending on whether "the building of Barad-dûr" refers to the start of construction or its completion, it is possible that Oropher left before Eregion was founded. If so, anyone who had gone with him would know little of Eregion, and Legolas' ignorance of Eregion might be explained that way. However, had Legolas been dwelling with his grandfather prior to his removal across the Misty Mountains, he would have been in the mixed Noldor/Sindar settlement in Lindon. In that case, why would he consider the High-Elves (Noldor) a "strange race," if he had once lived among them? Also, he's drawing a distinction between the "strange" Elves of Eregion and we of the silvan folk. My guess is that means he was born after Oropher moved to Mirkwood. He certainly never mentions that migration, and his consistant attiude that he is a Wood-elf seems to postdate it. So I think we can be fairly certain that Legolas was born after his noble family settled among the Wood-elves and "went native", sometime in the early part of the segundo Age. In other words, he almost has to be less than 6400 years old. Can we narrow it down madami than that? Our susunod milestone is Oropher's ilipat from the vicinity of Lórien to the northern half of Mirkwood. What does Legolas know about this migration? 'It is long since any of my own folk journeyed hither back to the land whence we wandered in ages long ago,' sinabi Legolas, 'but we hear that Lórien is not yet deserted, for there is a secret power here that holds evil from the land. Nevertheless its folk are seldom seen, and maybe they dwell now deep in the woods and far from the northern border.' (Lothlórien, FOTR) It sounds as if Legolas was not alive when his folk still "journeyed hither back to the land whence we came," but it's hard to tell. The fact that Legolas never shows any suspicion or hostility towards Galadriel and Celeborn suggests that he was born after the doubts and resentments that led his family to ilipat north in the middle of the segundo Age had died down, or at least, they had stopped talking about it. That pushes Legolas' birthdate up to the latter part of the segundo Age at the earliest. Now we get to a sticky problem. 'It is told that she [Nimrodel] had a house built in the branches of a puno that grew near the falls; for that was the custom of the Elves of Lórien, to dwell in the trees, and maybe it is so still. Therefore they were called the Galadhrim, the Tree-people. Deep in their forest the trees are very great. The people of the woods did not delve in the ground like Dwarves, nor build strong places of stone before the Shadow came.' (Lothlórien, FOTR) Here we have a quote with a firm date: the Balrog arose in Moria in T.A. 1980, and Amroth and Nimrodel were both Nawawala during the resulting chaos in 1981. However, Legolas seems to have made a mistake. He's forgotten the Elvenking's mighty hall of stone. When was it actually built, and why? When the shadow of Dol Guldur fell upon Mirkwood around T.A. 1000, the Silvan Elves... retreated before it as it spread ever northward, until at last Thranduil established his realm in the north-east of the forest and delved there a fortress and great halls underground. Oropher was of Sindarin origin, and no doubt Thranduil his son was following the example of King Thingol long before. (The History of Galadriel and Celeborn, UT) Legolas' tahanan is the main "strong place of stone...delved in the ground like Dwarves" among all the Silvan folk; we don't see any such place in Lórien. So he has to have his father's hall in mind. But the event that he says inspired its construction is a thousand years too late. EIther Legolas was born long after the deaths of Amroth and Nimrodel, sa pamamagitan ng which time the Balrog was blamed even for things that had nothing to do with it -- or this is just a case where Tolkien's private jottings don't synch up perfectly with the published books. There's no way to know. However, his use of the past tense makes it sound like he's retelling legends of things that happened before he was born -- maybe. If that's so, he cannot be older than about a thousand years. Another clue is the fact that Legolas seems never have visited Lothlórien before. If he were older than two thousand, he'd predate Dol Guldur, and would have spent time with his familiy living in south Mirkwood on the opposite side of the river from Lórien. If so, you would think he'd have visited his closest kin and neighbors at least once, to deliver messages or pay his respects to King Amroth, an old family friend! After all, Legolas left Mirkwood with (he thought) a distressing but minor matter: the escape of a prisoner whose importance was not understood. I simply cannot believe he would never have visited Lórien before it became dangerous to go that way. So I'm putting his birth after the establishment of Dol Guldur, and feel pretty confident that it's necessary to do so. That pushes his birthdate past T.A. 1000, almost certainly less than two thousand years old: younger than any other elf named in the story, even Arwen. Legolas' Age: madami Speculation As Young as Seven Hundred, Perhaps? Are there any madami clues that can help us narrow down Legolas' age? Well, we have Tolkien's habit of making parallel generations in closely-allied families: Tuor and Huor, Túrin and Húrin for example. The pattern here is less obvious, but King Amdir of Lórien and King Oropher of Mirkwood are both Sindarin princes of Silvan Elves who moved east at the same time, died in the same war, and were succeeded sa pamamagitan ng sons of the same age. If Amroth and Nimrodel had not died during the mess following the Dwarves' discovery of a Balrog in Moria, their children would have been born less than a thousand years before ROTK, and Legolas would be the same generation. So there's a fourth clue pointing in the same general direction, albeit a fairly flimsy one. I also can't help but wonder about Bilbo's mithril coat, made for a half-grown elven prince. The dwarves who settled the Lonely Mountain were fleeing Moria after the Balrog disaster. There was only one Elf-king left in Middle-Earth sa pamamagitan ng that time. For whom was the amerikana made? Unless Legolas has siblings we never hear about (which is of course possible), then that was supposed to be his! So there's a fifth clue, albeit a rather forced one, since I don't think Tolkien had come up with the character of Legolas son of the Elvenking when he was Pagsulat The Hobbit. However, that does fit the fact that Legolas' recounting of the story of Amroth and Nimrodel makes it sound like they had been glamorized into legend before he was born. That makes him less than eight or nine hundred years old. Say seven hundred, since he elsewhere seems to imply he's seen five hundred years. He would certainly be old compared to the rest of the Fellowship, but as an Elf he's still in his "tweens", as the Hobbits would say, or in human terms, he's a young man just coming into the prime of his life. After sifting through all of this, I discovered that Michael Martinez, the may-akda of Visualizing Middle Earth, had concluded that Legolas was not much past five hundred years old. See his "Speaking of Legolas" article; he follows an entirely different line of reasoning.

There is nowhere written that Legolas was 4 100-4 300 years old. 4 100 is too much. He was much younger than that.
