Nimloth later married Dior the Beautiful, her second cousin once removed, making her an heir of Melian, Queen of Doriath. In the few years before the death of Thingol, she lived near the land of Lanthir Lamath at the base of the Blue Mountains in the Northeast. There her children Eluréd, Elurín and Elwing were born.
When Thingol died, she went Northwest to Doriath with her husband and their children and became Queen of Doriath. She was later slain in the Kinslaying of Menegroth by the Sons of Fëanor along with her husband. Elwing escaped to the Havens of Sirion but it is unknown whether her brothers survived or not. It is tradtion among the Nandor of Ossiriand that they were lead to safety by the birds and beasts after being abandoned in the forest by the servants of Celegorm.
The name Nimloth was a Sindarin word. It was likely to have come from the words nim, meaning "white", and loth, meaning "blossom", which would give the meaning "White blossom" to her name.
