Adanedhel

Revision as of 01:34, 12 February 2006 by Hyarion (Talk | contribs)

Túrin the son of Húrin, though a Man, was raised from childhood in the halls of King Thingol of Doriath. When, later in his life, he went to dwell among the Elves of Nargothrond, they recognised the nobility he had learned in Thingol's kingdom, and gave him the name Adanedhel, meaning 'Elf-man'.
