Eärwen was the daughter of Olwë, wife of Finarfin, and mother of Galadriel, Finrod, Angrod, and Aegnor.

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. At some undetermined time during the Noontide of Valinor, she married Finarfin and had four children: Finrod, Angrod, Aegnor, and Galadriel. She is said to be friends with Anairë, Fingolfin's wife.

As the wife of Finarfin, she followed her husband when he briefly followed the host of the Ñoldor before he turned back and repented, so they both stayed in Aman after the flight of the Ñoldor. She still lives with Finarfin in Tirion.

Through Galadriel, she is the grandmother of Lady Celebrian of Rivendell (wife of Elrond) and consequently, great grandmother to her three children: Twin brothers Elladan and Elrohir and the famous Arwen Undómiel, future Queen of Gondor.[1]

EtymologyEdit

Eärwen's name means "Sea-maiden". "Eär"="Sea", "Wen"="Maiden".[citation needed]

NotesEdit

In the family tree of Elwë in the Silmarillion, Eärwen is given as the only child of Olwë, but in the 60th page it states her having brothers, whose names are unknown. It is possible that Eärwen could have unrecorded brothers and sisters, and that Olwë had several children as opposed to only one.
