Vidumavi was a Northmen, the daughter of Vidugavia, the Princess of Rhovanion.

BiographyEdit

Vidumavi married Gondor's King Valacar when he was on a diplomatic mission in Rhovanion. The Dúnedain of Gondor feared that a shorter-lived bloodline would weaken Gondor's noble line.[1] In TA 1255, she bore Valacar a son and heir, the future King Eldacar. Because of Eldacar's short-lived, Northman mother, many of the Dúnedain and Men of Gondor were unwilling to accept him as their future king, leading to the disastrous Kin-strife eighty-eight years later in TA 1432.[2]

She was also known by the name Galadwen after coming to Gondor with her husband and child.[1]

EtymologyEdit

The name Vidumavi is a Latinized version of the Gothic word Widumawi (wood-maiden).[3]
