…interlude…

Though I call myself (or at least this here blog pertaining to myself) ‘The Progenitor,’ I must confess that I have not as yet, as far as I can recall, born witness to such term in any kind of literary context… until now!

In the “List of Names” at the back of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Children of Húrin, the description to the right of the entry for “Bëor” is thus…

Leader of the first Men to enter Beleriand; progenitor of the House of Bëor, one of the three Houses of the Edain.

So there you have it! 🙂
