  1. Fun fact, n’est–ce pas? 🙂 And for Tolkien fans, there is a book titled ‘Beren and Lúthien’ to be released in mid 2017, the earliest version of which Tolkien wrote in 1917. An essential element in the evolution of The Silmarillion, and a love story – Beren was a mortal man, but Lúthien was an immortal Elf – these are the names inscribed on the headstones of Tolkien and his wife Edith. https://www.tolkiensociety.org/2016/10/new-tolkien-book-beren-and-luthien/
