Character

Eärwen was the daughter of Olwë and had several unnamed brothers. She was the wife of Finarfin, and mother of Finrod, Angrod, Aegnor, and Galadriel.[2]

BiographyEdit

Eärwen was born during the Years of the Trees either in Middle-earth or in the Elven realms of the Far West, possibly Tol Eressëa or Alqualondë. In YT 1280, she wedded Finarfin the second son of Finwë.[3] Her children were Finrod, Angrod, Aegnor, and Galadriel. She was said to be a friend of Anairë, wife of Fingolfin.[4]

Like Anairë, Eärwen did not follow her husband into exile during the Revolt of the Ñoldor.[4] Later, Finarfin repented because of the Kinslaying at Alqualondë and returned to Aman.[5]

EtymologyEdit

The name Eärwen means "Sea-maiden" from the Quenyan ëar ("Sea") and the sufix -wen ("maiden").[6][7][8]

Other versions of the legendariumEdit

In The Silmarillion, Eärwen has another son called Orodreth.[2] This is later changed by Christopher Tolkien, making Orodreth a son of Angrod and Eärwen's grandson instead.
