In the Third Age, Dior is also the name of one of the Ruling Stewards of Gondor.

Dior Eluchîl or simply Dior was the son of Beren and Lúthien, and the heir to the throne of Thingol, King of Doriath and High King of the Sindar. Dior was one of the Half-elven.


Dior lived during the First Age, first in Tol Galen in the East Beleriand where he was born, and later Lanthir Lamath where he married Nimloth and had three children: Eluréd, Elurín and Elwing. After Thingol was slain by the dwarves who coveted the Nauglamir, Dior became King of Doriath as Thingol's only heir-apparent. There he and his wife lived in peace for sadly only a few years for when the Sons of Fëanor heard that a Silmaril was there they declared war on them.

Dior and Nimloth were slain by the Sons of Fëanor during the Sack of Menegroth to recapture the Silmaril he inherited from his parents. Celegorm, Curufin, and Caranthir were also killed. Dior's sons Eluréd and Elurín were captured during the assault and left to die in the woods of Doriath by the servants of Celegorm. Elwing, however, escaped with the remnant of the Elves of Doriath to the Havens of Sirion, where she wedded Eärendil the Mariner and they together sought pardon and aid from the Valar.

Dior was one of the fairest beings to ever live; a product of three different heritages that of the Ainur, Men, and Elves.


He was also called Eluchíl which means "Heir of Elu", Ausir, "The Wealthy", and Aranel, "The Noble Elf". His name probably means "Successor".
