When the Men of Middle-earth die, they leave the Arda. Where do they go then?

They first pass to the Halls of Mandos, albeit other halls than those of the Elves. Within the Middle-earth mythology it is nowhere explained where Men ultimately go: that's the reason why they're called the guests by Elves, who are doomed to stay in Arda until the End.

They may end up in the Timeless Halls of Eru, although they may leave Eä altogether and go to a parallel universe where they'll live in a heavenly existence until the second Music of the Ainur. It's more likely that they'll end up in the Timeless Halls, however. Scorpionman 9:53, 1 April 2005 (UTC)

Can anyone tell me what the life span of Men is?

about 100 years

Long Life of the Numenor[edit]

Surprisingly, There is little or no information on WHY ARgorn or other Dunedain have such long lifes.

They are Numenoreans, who were blessed with long life by the Valar after the overthrow of Morgoth. By the way, it's "lives" not "lifes". 00:02, 21 August 2006 (UTC)

Legolas or other elf as a "man"[edit]

"Legolas, for example, may be correctly called a man but not a Man."
I question this, as AFAIK Tolkien always uses the term "elf" in such cases and never "man". Got a cite? -- (talk) 18:37, 15 April 2008 (UTC)

I agree, and I think no one will find a cite for it. Male Elves are neither "men" nor "Men." Additionally, I think it is Peregrin Took who corrects some soldiers of Gondor, denying that he is a man and telling them that he is a hobbit. (talk) 21:09, 13 January 2015 (UTC) Eric

Would it be helpful to say, conversely, that Eowyn is a "Man" but not a "man"? From this article, it appears that would be true. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:29, 13 March 2010 (UTC)
