    Challenges a Balrog to a duel. He wins but dies in the process.

    Those are the Silmarils on Big Ugly's brow, so that must be the Iron Crown of Morgoth, and therefore the little man with the sword must be Beren challenging Morgoth for the Silmarils.

    EDIT: Trivia 6: Who was Galadriel's eldest brother, and what did he have to do with the Silmarils?

    I'm appalled: Beren snuck into Morgoth's lair and cut the silmarils out of his crown while he slept, then fled when he cut himself trying to take more than he had promised to steal! So there was never any battle.

    It's probably Fingolfin challenging Morgoth (wielding the great hammer Grond) to a duel before the dark lord's gates, where he had ridden in righteous fury. He cut the dark Valar seven times before a fell balrog yanked the elf king down from behind and he was crushed and trampled.

    I will leave Trivia #6 for someone else.

    Trivial 7: What color were Tom Bombadil's boots?

    Very good. The city he died defending was Gondolin (which fell anyway).

    I knew that had happened; but I didn't think that was the only time they ever met. Sorry, my mistake.

    Understood... but do you know the answer?

    It should be a pretty easy one for someone of your expertise.
