Ten Things We Wonder About Gimli

(in no particular order)

9. What do dwarves eat when they are so far underground? Fungus?

8. What happened to him when he went over the sea? Did he even survive the voyage?

7. How much did he weigh with armor? Could Aragorn really lift that?

6. Did he stand to inherit what remained of Gloin's share of Smaug's wealth? And did this make him the equivalent of a high nobleman's son in dwarf terms?

5. Who was his mother, and why wasn't she ever named? Did he have any siblings?

4. Did he really expect to find any of his relatives still alive in Moria? Or was it all a brave show?

3. How fast could he really run?
