Aranrúth was a sword that belonged to Elu Thingol, King of Doriath and High King of the Sindar.[1] After the Second Sack of Doriath, the sword was rescued by Elwing and was passed on to their descendants.[2]

It later became the sword of the Kings and Queens of Númenor but was eventually lost with Ar-Pharazon, who was entombed on the shores of Aman, during the Downfall of Númenor in SA 3319.[3]

EtymologyEdit

Aranrúth means "King's Ire", from the Sindarin aran ("king") and rûth ("anger").[4][5]
