Merlinscribe: The Journal of James P. Mallory

I have read Crown of Vengeance many time, I am going to guess upward of 40 times at least, not including how many time I have heard the audio version of it. Kate Rudd did a wonderful job of reading it and I hope she also does Blade. I have a very short memory which is both good and bad. Good in the context that I can read the same fiction book dozens of time and I may remember very little of it. In other words I can read a book, then a week or month later pick up the same book and it is like I have never read it before. It is bad because I can read a history chapter four times in a week and be lucky to get a C. I have about half of Crown memorize, which alone should say how much I have read it. Just finished reading it again, so now I am back to the beginning.
I do have a couple of question on the book that I was wondering about, and the answer could have been somewhere in the book that I could of skipped over. So if they were forgive me for that. In no particular order.
1. Is tuathal left? And deosil right?
2. From my second or third reading of the book there were two names that bother me. I am not sure if I was just misunderstanding what was said. In most of the book the War Prince of Telthorelandor was named of Ivaloriel who was bondmated to Ladyholder Edheleorn, but around the end of the book (chapter 16: Wind and Dust) it was spoken as if Edheleorn was the War Prince. And in the last chapter after the alliance called an abeyance, after Edheleorn spoke, the words His voice was written. So who is the actual War Prince? And there sexes?
3. I know this does not matter, but I am curious. How much older is Runacarendalur to Vieliessar?
4. This question has almost no bearing on the book, but I was wondering, after Vieliessar became War Prince of Oronviel how did Gunedwaen react when he heard?
5. At the very beginning of the final chapter, in the excerpt when it mentioned that she became high king through seven great battles. I think I figured out when they happened in the book. There were three of them listed (Niothrmangh, Cirdeval, and the Barrens) that I had a hard time placing in the book. I think I have figured out the first and last after so many rereads, but I cannot figure out where Cirdeval was place, or if that one was off stage?
Thank you for your time, and once again I cannot wait for Blade to be released.
PS I apologize for any spelling or grammar errors.
