Wilwarin was one of the constellations of stars set in the heavens of Arda by Varda.


Wilwarin like Soronúmë, Anarrima and Menelmacar were a collection of stars gathered by Varda before the Awakening of the Elves and set in the heavens as signs to come.[1]


Wilwarin is a Quenya word that meant 'butterfly'.[2]

Behind the scenesEdit

Wilwarin is comparable to the constellation Cassiopeia.[2]
