Hoy ha surgido una pregunta sobre el nombre del caballo de #Aragorn. Nos ha hecho recordar los #Tolkienfacts que hicimos hace mucho tiempo sobre tan nobles animales en la #TierraMedia, así que queremos revivirlos.
Por cierto, el de Aragorn se llama Roheryn.
ABRIMOS HILO ⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️
"Los caballos que montaban [los montaraces] eran vigorosos y de estampa arrogante, pero hirsutos de crines; y uno de ellos no tenía jinete: el corcel de #Aragorn, que habían traido del Norte, y que respondía al nombre de Roheryn" (LSDLA, libro V) #Tolkienfacts
Obtenemos más información sobre Roheryn, el caballo de #Aragorn, en el apéndice sobre #Quenya y #Sindarin de El #silmarillion, donde se nos indica que significa 'Caballo de la señora', ya que se trata de un regalo de la Dama #Arwen.
Despejadas las dudas vamos con el #Tolkienfacts

NEWS FROM BREE: Amazon’s @LOTRonPrime series began its online marketing in GRAND GEEK STYLE with Fantasy lover’s favorite trope: a MAP of Middle-earth with details trickling in daily. LET’S EXPLORE THIS 🗺

“I’m acquiver with anticipation!”

The silence from Amazon had been deafening for many long, dry months...

Since their first slam-bang press release we haven’t heard any news, nor casting announcements, nor anything beyond the reveal of the two young writers newly assigned.

THEN THIS!

It is a rather shrewd piece of early marketing.

Though at first listing NO place names or demarcations, it is meant to be PURE ENTICEMENT. A blank map of such a familiar landscape has a visceral effect of “inviting us in” and lets our imagination start galloping wildly ahead. /3

[BREAKING] We have confirmed from multiple sources that @AmazonStudios new billion-dollar #LOTR series will open its first season centered on a young Aragorn.

Let's discuss whats available and how this opens up Tolkien's Legendarium. A thread. #Tolkien

Firstly, we must stamp out any remaining confusion:

From the first press release, we know this so-called #LOTR series will NOT be a retelling of the events of the War of the Ring. #BeenThereDoneThat

Instead it will be Appendices based and cover a lot of time and history. /2
This is the greatest advantage the show runners have: that so much of Tolkien’s storytelling, even just in “Appendix A,” covers a tremendous swath of time.

Starting with a young Aragorn narrative allows connections to his Numenorean bloodline (and to the founding of #Gondor). /3
