Last High King of the Elves in Middle-Earth. One of my fave characters, and totally stiffed of screentime in the movies!
The Second Fall of Gil-galad
Gil-galad was an Elvenking
Of him the purists sadly sing
For in the prologue of the first movie
Indistinguishable perished he
His sword was long, his lance was keen,
But all this went pretty much unseen,
In the melee of Weta's battlefield
Sole Hugo Weaving was revealed.
From movieverse he rode away,
And where he dwelleth none may say,
For into darkness fell his star;
On disc three where the extras are.
By me, after Tolkien in FOTR.
