Adanedhel

Revision as of 20:21, 31 August 2011 by Gamling (Talk | contribs)

Adanedhel was another name for Túrin, the son of Húrin and Morwen. Although a Man, he had been 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' (Adan means man and edhel means elf).[1]
