Emeldir also known as Emeldir the Manhearted was the wife of Barahir and the mother of Beren.

BiographyEdit

Emeldir was born during First Age 406 to Beren[1] and his unnamed wife. After the conquest of Dorthonion by the forces of Morgoth after the ruin of Dagor Bragollach where her husband had stayed becoming an outlaw, she preferred to fight with him to the death but instead was charged with leading the surviving people of the House of Hador to safe havens in Brethil. It was during all this that she gained the title Man-hearted.[2]

EtymologyEdit

Emel means 'mother' in Sindarin.[Source?]
