This template is within the scope of WikiProject Middle-earth, which aims to build an encyclopedic guide to J. R. R. Tolkien, his legendarium, and related topics. Please visit the project talk page for suggestions and ideas on how you can improve this and other articles.

Note: Though it states in the Guide to writing better articles that generally fictional articles should be written in present tense, all Tolkien legendarium-related articles that cover in-universe material must be written in past tense. Please see Wikipedia:WikiProject Middle-earth/Standards for more information about this and other article standards.

Melkor/Morgoth[edit]

Shouldn't it be Melkor a.k.a. Morgoth? Only the elves call him Morgoth.---user talk:hillgentleman 12:30, 6 February 2007 (UTC)

Yes it should be, especially in keeping with the naming convention for Gandalf, Saruman and Mandos, I've edited it Carl Sixsmith (talk) 17:53, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

Ungoliant[edit]

I removed Ungoliant, whom (like Bombadil) Tolkien does not identify as an Ainur. (The closest we get is Silmarillion p. 73, where he says she might be "one of those he corrupted to his service" -- and even here it is not clear that he means "one of the Ainur".)  Elphion (talk) 18:22, 20 May 2008 (UTC)
