I don’t think there’s any need of me to tell you what Lord of the Rings is. In case you need reminding, Lord of the Rings is an epic high fantasy novel by the English author and scholar J. R. R. Tolkien. Set in Middle-earth, the world at some distant time in the past. The story began as a sequel to Tolkien’s 1937 children’s book The Hobbit but eventually developed into a much larger work. Written in stages between 1937 and 1949, The Lord of the Rings is one of the best-selling books ever written, with over 150 million copies sold. Later it was adapted in to a trilogy of movies by Peter Jackson.
The title names the story’s main antagonist, the Dark Lord Sauron, who had in an earlier age created the One Ring to rule the other Rings of Power as the ultimate weapon in his campaign to conquer and rule all of Middle-earth. From homely beginnings of the English countryside, the story ranges across Middle-earth, following the quest mainly through the eyes of the hobbits Frodo, Sam, Merry and Pippin.
J. R. R. Tolkien created a world so complex and expansive that it’s nigh impossible to know everything about it. The history, races, cultures that Tolkien brought into existence are as diverse as those of the real world. The scale of this fictional world is unmatched.
I know that some of you have only watched the movies and never had the chance to read the books (which I highly recommend for you to read). Though the movies are great and truly deserve all the Oscars, they are only the tip of the ice berg. So in this Lord of the Rings quiz I’ll base the questions from both the movies and the books so that fans of the movies won’t feel bad while fans of the books will also have some tricky questions prepared for them. This way you’ll get the perfect chance to show your deep knowledge about the Middle-earth.
