Character

Adanel was a wise woman from the House of Marach. She was a daughter of Malach and his wife, Zimrahin, and the older sister of Magor. It was mentioned that Adanel had many other brothers and sisters as well, and like Magor her brother, they also might have been younger than she.

BiographyEdit

Adanel ended up marrying Belemir of the House of Bëor, a great-grandson of Bëor the Old himself. Adanel was the mother of five children and her fifth and last child was a son Beren.[1] Adanel's son Beren was later was the grandfather of his great namesake grandson the renowned Beren Erchamion (Beren the One-handed) of whom his daughter the famed Emeldir the Man-hearted named after him. Thus, Adanel was the great-grandmother of Beren son of Emeldir her granddaughter.

The Wise of the People of Marach were the only Men to preserve the tale of their original sin, when, soon after their awakening, the Men chose to worship Melkor instead of Eru. Adanel told this tale (called the Tale of Adanel in Morgoth's Ring) to Andreth of the House of Bëor.

Andreth was a very distant niece of Adanel's husband Belemir through the line of Baran, the eldest son of Bëor, and Belemir through the line of his grandfather Belen who was the youngest son of Bëor. In addition, Andreth's nephew Barahir married Adanel's granddaughter Emeldir.[2]

EtymologyEdit

The name Adanel was a Sindarin name of unclear meaning. It is likely to have come from the words adan, meaning 'man' (as a race, rather than in gender), and el, meaning 'star'. This would give the meanings "star of man" or perhaps "man of the star" to her name.
