If memory serves me correctly, the Balrogs are Maiar as well. All corrupted by Melkor, as Sauron was.
Also, the Valar Aule, is the creator of the Dwarves. Hidden from all the Valar, Aule's dwarves were the first mortal beings in the world, even before the Elves. When Iluvatar questioned his actions, Aule raised his hammer to smite his creations, but Eru showed mercy, and allowed Aule's creation to sleep, in wait for the Elves to roam the world, as Eru had intended the Elves to be the first.

These make me want to reread the LotR, as well as all of Tolkein's work on Middle Earth. Another fun fact, four songs by Led Zepplin: The Battle of Evermore, Ramble On, Misty Mountain Hop and Bron-Y-Aur Stomp are inspired and even allude to LotR.

Dwarves.
Tolkien's word is dwarves, my friend.
English said "dwarfs", but Tolkien didn't like it.

Your facts are awesome, I really love reading theese. And for the next post, could you maybe do something on Sauron? Or perhaps the dwarves?

Just posting here cause i can: Gandalf was the strongest out of the five Istari (wizards) and the wisest. But he was also humble, and Galadriel and Elrond knew of his power but everyone else believed that Saruman was the strongest of the 5 wizards due to his power of speech and the metal work he could do.

TLR Gandalf is a bad ass ************

You could also mention that Sauron's appearance wasn't described in the books. They took old artwork of Melkor (Sauron's former master) as inspiration for his appearance in the movies.

On a side note. Gandalf makes these references in the book as well. This scene was ripped straight from the book. There were some differences yes, but they were mostly minor.

Went to see lotr in cinema.
The fight with the fire monster was cool.
Went to see sequels, expected more cool monsters. Got lame ghosts and talking trees.
Dissapoint.

Didn't Sauron 'work' for Melkor aka Morgoth?
