What Title Would You Hold in Middle-Earth?

Tolkien Event 2016

Every year on March 25, the anniversary of the Downfall of Sauron, the Tolkien Society hosts Tolkien Reading Day. This year’s theme is Life, Death, and Immortality. The primary goal is to promote the reading of the works of J.R R. Tolkien! To celebrate, Pages Unbound will be hosting two weeks of Tolkien-related posts. In addition to our own thoughts, we will be featuring guest posts, interviews, and giveaways! See the schedule here.

Tolkien Quiz


To take the quiz, choose the best answer to each question. Write down the letter of the answer you pick for each question, or simply keep a running tally of how many of each letter you pick. After the last question, count the letters and see which you chose most often. Check the answers to see what title you would hold in Middle-Earth. Be sure to share your result with us in the comments!

    It was a fun quiz. I got Lady of Lothlorien and I’d be lying if I said I didn’t secretly hope for it. 🙂
    I love all the Tolkien-related activity here and I’m heading off to read more posts. I’m so glad I stumbled upon this site. Excellent job, Krysta and Briana! 🙂
