BiographyEdit

FOTR - Lorien Brothers

Rúmil and his brothers

Rúmil was a marchwarden of Lórien and guarded the border of the western part of the forest, with his brothers. He was present at the Fellowship of the Ring's first meeting with the Galadhrim.

Later, he and Haldir guided the Fellowship to Caras Galadhon. Rúmil spoke very little Westron and so could not really interact with the Fellowship when he and his brothers encountered them in the forest.[1]

EtymologyEdit

According to Robert Foster, the name Rúmil is Quenya.[2]

Other versions of the legendariumEdit

In early writings, Rúmil was called Rhimbron, Romrin, and Rhomrin.[3] As Rhimbron, he had another companion named Hathaldir.[4]
