Is the last clue TRUNG?
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
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.
Saruman can tell you.
He can't, he's dead
he never lived? (or what historical figure did Tolkien use for Saruman?)
Bingo! The answer is indeed Hai Ba Trung, the Trung Sisters of ancient Vietnam.
The floor is yours Steph.
