Scion of Kings
Colored version of the "Scion of Kings" - Ereinion Gil-galad as the son of Fingon after The Silmarillion (top) and the son of Orodreth after The History of Middle-earth vol. XII (bottom). Originally b&w illustration to a polemics on Gil-galad's parentage in the 20th jubilee issue of the Polish almanac "Aiglos". Heraldry in the back represents the fathers, while the emblem on the shield is Gil-galad's own. Gil-galad's epessë Ereinion means "Scion of Kings" - thus the title - he is is literally a scion of kings by the unsolved parentage question and by the given honorific title.
