No I'm sorry it isn't.

But keep guessing...

Are you Wilcome (aka Jolly) Cotton?

I am the second one
A childhood friend and brother-in-law


He was Tolman Cotton's second son and Samwise Gamgee's longtime friend and brother-in-law through Rose Cotton, Sam's wife.

of he who is implied to be foolish,
but ended up a heero of his people
I helped saving the land I call home


The meaning of Samwise is "half-wise" or "foolish", but later proved his worth during the quest to destroy the Ring of Power, in which he was of paramount importance. Jolly Cotton was known for aiding in the defence of his father's farm against Sharkey's Men and freeing the Shire.

I am the eldest of the first,
Said to have never died.

I founded a great city,
Seeing stars as a sign.

My line ruled throughout history,
Though not forever in that realm.

Who am I?

Are you Durin I (the Deathless)?

QUOTE

Dwarves were made before the elves by Aulë, but awoke later
And he's called the deathless

QUOTE

He founded Khazad-dûm after seeing stars reflected in the surface of a lake which he took as a sign

QUOTE

Though not forever in that realm.[/quote]
Durin is the Founder of Durin's Folk and all dwarved hail from him, so they would rule throughout history, but at some point Moria was lost, and they obviously didn't rule there anymore then.

I was the eldest of many;
Glittering, spray of Light.
Though carrying a burden;
a terrible one
though I did not carry it alone
that I before the end
sorely regretted taking up,
for in the end it brought
nothing but suffering
to me and my house.
In the end
I could take it no more
And made an end
to it all

Who am I?

Are you Maedhros?

He was the eldest of Fëanor's seven sons and considered their leader. In Valinor, he swore the Oath of Fëanor, yet out of all his brothers (except perhaps Maglor), he regretted it the most. All of the deeds he committed for the sake of the Silmarils brought nothing but sorrow, and in the end, Maedhros cast himself into a fissure in the earth.

ETA: His name means "Glitter of Metal" or, according to some references, "Spray of Light".

I dwelt in the lost land of Arnor,
My words were as of gold.

I could see both near and far
And I saw the heir walk the pass.

Though I saw the last of the kings,
I did not see the first of their new line.

Who am I?

I known a jewel,
It was mine.

Wondered the world
At the end of my time

But it had gone to darkness
By the hand of the Nine.

Wow, do you mean "I own a jewel" and "wandered the world"?

In which case, I will guess Galadriel.

She is the bearer of the Ring of Water with a silver jewel.
Due however to the work of Sauron, the power of the rings was destroyed at the hand of the Nine, and the woods of Lorien are gone.
She was one of the last to leave Middle earth.

No, sorry. Good points were made, but forgot the "End of my time". And Galadriel was not ended by the hand of the Nine.

By that I thought you meant the end of the time of the elves...
darn, hmm.
So, this was before the fall of Sauron or after? If I can't ask questions, don't reply!

Are you ereinion (gilgalad)?
He too bore one of the three and his Kingdom ended, more or less, when he died in the siege of Baradur.

No, not Gil-Galad. But good point.
I do apologize for being so late!
And I corrected one word 'all' to 'it'. It was misleading. Sorry.

Are you Thrór the Dwarf?

He got one of the Rings. And at the end of his life Smaug came to Erebor, so he fled with his son and grandson, wandering around in the wild. And then he was slain by a Goblin in Moria.
