Adanedhel

Revision as of 14:54, 1 March 2010 by Mith (Talk | contribs)

Adanedhel was another name for 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'. (Adan means man and edhel means elf)
