This part is my favorite. Rapunzel is descended from Merry and Éowyn and Corona is modern Rohan.
Let’s start with the flags
So obviously any Lotr and Tangled fan knows these flags. And obviously the biggest connection here is the sun. And Rohan’s flag has a white horse on it, just like a certain disney horse we all know and love
It’s well known that horses are the backbone of Rohirrim society, and horses are at least important enough in Corona for there to be an entire horse sport invented in their country. Plus, both main cities are built on a large hillside/small mountain, with the castle being at the top overlooking the city.
And now for the genetics.
Obviously it’s clear that over roughly 2000 years, not all of Merry and Éowyn’s traits are gonna be super prominent in Rapunzel or either of her parents. However, there are some small clues. Just like Merry and Éowyn, Rapunzel is without a doubt a horse lover. And younger Arianna seems to have had the same kind of attitude as Éowyn pre Witch King, wanting to go out into the world and make something of herself. And being part Hobbit could also give further explanation as to why Willow and Rapunzel in particular like to be barefoot.
Merry: [about Éowyn] And then we had a little eye contact.
Pippin: Eye contact? I hope you were using protection.

Recently worked with @koorimars to turn my Middle-earth inspired designs into pins and T-shirt!
Four new pins are for pre-order at the moment:
Dragon-sickness (my own favorite design!)
Bilbo and his Redbook
The Redbook (of Westmarch)
“I AM NO MAN.”
I am also very fond of this T-shirt pattern. “Home is behind” on the back and “The world ahead” on the chest. (The model wearing the Tee is myself. :D )
Thank you so much.

Women of the Legendarium: 8/?
Women of Lord of the Rings: 5/?
Míriel was a woman of Gondor and the daughter of the Steward Denethor II and his wife Finduilas. She was born three years after their eldest son Boromir, and two prior to Faramir; ever she hearkened to Boromir rather than Faramir, and they were close in heart. After her mother's death, she was left to look after Faramir due to her father's absence. She was strong-spirited at an early age, which her father was weary of. She enjoyed travelling to the regions of Gondor, though especially Dol Amroth, loving the sights and sounds of the sea. She was troubled by the Shadow in the east, but though she daunted she did not waver. She felt a hot desire to fight for her country, and lend aid to the soldiers. Denethor was wise, and he counselled his daughter against it. But she was determined, and stubborn as the Araws of Old, and she went to battle with Boromir. She and her brother fought together often, holding back the forces of Minas Morgul in Osgiliath. During the War of the Ring, she refused the order for the women and children to evacuate, helping hold the line at Osgiliath. She pursued the Lieutenant of Morgul, engaging him in combat and slaying him with the help of Peregrin Took, then riding to Morannon and fighting in the last battle.

I don’t like my singing but my mom asked me to do it more so pls be nice to me thank you
Whatever you do, don't imagine domestic Merrywyn after the War of the Ring.
Don't imagine Eowyn traveling with the hobbits and cooking for them and they're more than happy to eat her stew (especially Merry)
Don't imagine Merry proudly bringing a human home to his parents
Don't imagine Eowyn playing with Merry's younger cousins
Don't imagine Eowyn trying to fit in more by wearing flowers in her hair and going barefoot
Don't imagine everyone in the Shire referring to her as Wyn Brandybuck.
Don't imagine Pippin and Frodo telling Eowyn every embarrassing story about Merry

I really don't like to think about how improbable it is that a ragtag gang of 8 compromised of just 4 capable fighters and 4 innocent child-men would survive a mass uruk-hai attack with only 1 casualty, so when all that is going on I definitely do watch but my brain is looking away
