Estë lived with her husband in Lórien. She did not walk by day, but instead she slept upon an island of the tree-shadowed Lake of Lórellin in Lórien. And all those who dwelt in Valinor drew refreshment from the fountains of Estë and her spouse Irmo in Lórien. In like manner, to the gardens of Lórien, theValar themselves often came and would find easing and reposing there from the burdens of Arda.
After a time, when the Elves dwelt in Valinor, the King of the Noldor, Finwë, was grieved that his first wife had no more strength to carry on any longer. Afterwards, Manwë surrendered the care of Miriel to the spouse of Estë, Irmo in Lórien. Estë and her maidens still tended to the body of Miriel and it remained unwithered although Miriel never came back among the living.
Estë was a Quenya word that meant "rest".
