Actually it was the bloodstone which destroyed Agsded, and we don't know how.
It could have been channeling Aerin. Or it could be a generic focus, and
focused the fire around Agsded to a level he couldn't handle. Or something

And Aerin's mom was a woman, and was not clearly more powerful than her

Luthe being weaker than Agsded doesn't mean anything.

Thanks; that's the one book I don't have. And the parents comment, if
accurate (when Corlath said it, not if your quote is accurate) I'd like to
think pushes for my extreme view of Luthe's age.

8000 year old male, 20 year old female. Interesting relationship.

I thought it was generally thought Harry's gram was an escaped royal, i.e. a
great-aunt of Corlath's. Quite possibly stronger than Corlath, unless the
Gift flared in him. Which it may have; don't they say Corlath was stronger
than his immediate predecessors?
