    Got it

    We have an Uruk-hai, we have Uruk (wild guess) --> Hai

    We have a BAR , - R --> BA

    With T.R., we have UN, and we have G --> Trung

    So that's HAI BA TRUNG, vietnamese semi legendary warrior sisters who led an uprising against China

    Oh.......

    I only 'solved' the third clue. I was thinking Theodore Roosevelt was related to FDR who founded the UN, which is near Radio City Music Hall, which had origins in the people I mentioned.

    I don't know what an Uruk-hai is. :p

    Bingo! The answer is indeed Hai Ba Trung, the Trung Sisters of ancient Vietnam.

    The floor is yours Steph.
