[super spoiler alert!] Since Aragorn reunited the two kingdoms, shouldn't Arnor also be a correct answer? Numenor is not part of Middle-Earth! Also, these should be alternative answers: Lothlorien - Laurelindorenan; Lorien Minas Tirith - Minas Anor Rivendell - Imladris Mirkwood - Eryn Lasgalen

Actually, Numenor is originally defined as"nearest of all mortal lands to the undying lands" making it part of the "mortal lands"/middle earth. Agreed on Arnor, especially as it was actually Aragorn's original kingdom, as he is the direct lineal heir of Elendil by his oldest sons(sorry if that is sexist, but that is how it was), who was the high king of both Arnor/Gondor, residing in Arnor-specifically Annuminas. Sorry, nerd moment.

Yes, Gondor can't be considered "Aragorn's kingdom". It should be Arnor, which is the kingdom of the Northern lineage Aragorn comes from, or The Reunited Kingdom of Arnor and Gondor, that is the name of actual realm he ruled.

Maybe accept Rivendale or Rivendall?

Gondor and Shire are both in Ethiopia... I've visited them before. and saw the Hobbit-sized bones of Lucy at the museum in Addis.

Well I think Tolkien was a rather intelligent linguist and wouldn't have made a mistake like this.

Well I hope you will devote a few hours of research looking in to the matter because I of course was being totally serious.

Okay, "Mirkwood" is definitely NOT the fortress Sauron used to live in. Mirkwood is the large forest (previously Greenwood) that his previous fortress is in, which is called "Dol Guldur"! And second, he's had many past fortresses, which include Meneltarma in Numenor. But Dol Guldur definitely should be the answer, not Mirkwood.

Rivendell is called Imladris by the elves Lothlorien is sometimes Lorien Mt Doom is called Orodruin by the elves These ore used often enough, I think, to be acceptable answers.
