Vidumavi was the daughter of Vidugavia, the Princess of Rhovanion. She married Gondor's King Valacar when he was on a diplomatic mission in Rhovanion.

BiographyEdit

Vidumavi was, as the Dúnedain of Gondor feared, short-lived (dying in TA 1344,[1] 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.[2]

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