Charlotte Mary Yonge (1823-1901) was once one of England's most famous
authors, internationally as well as domestically, yet in the last
century she has gone from being incredibly popular to almost unheard of.
Tolkien's 'The Lord of the Rings' has many characters. One of the most
striking is Galadriel, the Elf-woman who rules the land of Lorien along
with her husband, Celeborn. She is tall, golden-haired and is immensely
old and wise, but like all Elves, looks ageless.

"A collaborative guide, one that was written and kept up to date by the people who used it, in real time, might be a neat idea. I just didn't really realise that such a thing might be possible in my lifetime or how powerful such a thing might be."
