Silm Posters → Aredhel Ar-Feiniel

Their sister was Aredhel the White. She was younger in the years of the Eldar than her brothers; and when she was grown to full stature and beauty she was tall and strong, and loved much to ride and hunt in the forests. Ar-Feiniel she was called, The White Lady of the Noldor, for she was pale, though her hair was dark, and she was never arrayed but in silver and white.

elf week | day two: favourite female elf

Aredhel Ar-Feiniel, the White Lady of the Ñoldor, daughter of Fingolfin, dwelt in Nevrast with Turgon her brother, and she went with him to the Hidden Kingdom. But she wearied of the guarded city of Gondolin, desiring ever the longer the more to ride again in the wide lands and to walk in the forests, as had been her wont in Valinor.

Their sister was Aredhel the White. She was younger in years of the Eldar than her brothers; and when she was grown to full stature and beauty she was tall and strong, and loved much to ride and hunt in the forests. There she was often in the company of the sons of Fëanor, her kin; but to none was her heart’s love given.

Names in the House of Fingolfin

First of all, if you haven’t read this post about elvish naming customs, you’ll probably want to, since the rest of this won’t make too much sense otherwise. Also, I’ve got the Feanorian version of this post here.

Fingolfin

Fingon

  • Father-name: Findekano (“hair, commander”), sindarized to “Fingon”
  • Mother-name: unknown

Turgon

  • Father-name: Turukano (something, “commander”), sindarized to “Turgon”
  • Mother-name: unknown

Aredhel

  • Father-name: Irisse (meaning unknown), sindarized to “Ireth”
  • Mother-name: unknown
  • After-name/Epesse: Aredhel (“noble elf”), also Ar-Feiniel (“noble white lady”) in the published Silmarillion

Argon

  • Father-name: Arakano (something, “commander”), sindarized posthumously to “Argon”
  • Mother-name: unknown

Idril

  • Quenya name: Itarilde (“sparkling brilliance”), sometimes written Itarille, sindarized to “Idril” (it’s not clear if this was a father-name or a mother-name, or if (Idril’s mother being of the Vanyar) she even followed the same naming conventions as the Noldor.)
  • After-name/Epesse: Celebrindal (“silver-foot”)

Maeglin

  • Father-name: Maeglin (“sharp glance”), given to him at age 12
  • Mother-name: Lomion (“child of twilight”), given to him in secret (since Eol was strictly anti-Noldorin and anti-Quenya)

Aredhel Ar-Feiniel, the White Lady of the Noldor, daughter of Fingolfin, dwelt in Nevrast with Turgon her brother, and she went with him to the Hidden Kingdom. But she wearied of the guarded city of Gondolin, desiring ever the longer the more to ride again in the wide lands and to walk in the forests, as had been her wont in Valinor: and when two hundred years had passed since Gondolin was full-wrought, she spoke to Turgon and asked leave to depart.
Turgon was loath to grant this, and long denied her; but at the last he yielded, saying: ‘Go then, if you will though it is against my wisdom, and I forebode that ill will come of it both to you and to me. But you shall go only to seek Fingon, our brother; and those that I send with you shall return hither to Gondolin as swiftly as they may.’
But Aredhel said: 'I am your sister and not your servant, and beyond your bounds I will go as seems good to me. And if you begrudge me an escort, then I will go alone.’
