BiographyEdit

Meril-i-Turinqi was noble lady of great beauty, wisdom, and fairness[2] of the kindred of Inwë, the Ingwi their king and King of All the Elves, and of the Solosimpi.[1] This possibly explained her title. She lived in a white house amongst a Korin of elms at the foot of the Tower of Ingil close to or in Kortirion in the region of Alalminórë. She was frequently surrounded and accompanied by maidens. She was very knowledgeable on the Elf-draught Limpë and a holder of its secrets, and wise on early Elven history.

During the Man Eriol's stay in Tol Eressëa, he, desiring to taste of the Limpë was told of her by Vairë while he was staying at the Cottage of Lost Play. Soon afterwards, he and Littleheart, acting as his guide takes him to her dwelling-place. She welcomed him despite the fact that he was a mortal man. He was immediately entranced and mesmerized by her beauty but still able to explain his desire to drink of the Limpë. She would not give him what he wanted explaining its effects or mortal man. She would go on to teach him of the nature of Elves and Men and their differences and places in the world. She also told him much of the Elder Days, and of the Valar, and Melko's marring of the world and imprisonment.[2]
