Vidumavi was, as the Dúnedain of Gondor feared, short-lived (dying in TA 1344, before Valacar became king), but she succeeded in bearing Valacar a son, the future King Eldacar. Because of Eldacar's short-lived, non-Dúnadan mother, many Men of Gondor were unwilling to accept him as king, leading to the disastrous Kin-strife eighty-eight years later in TA 1432.
She was also known by the name Galadwen after coming to Gondor with her husband and child.
