Revision as of 00:40, 21 February 2010 by Gilgamesh (Talk | contribs)

Aranrúth was the sword of the Elven King Thingol of Doriath in the First Age. After his death the sword was passed on to his descendants. Elros, the first King of Númenor received it from Elwing , his mother, and from there on it became an heirloom of the Kings of Númenor. It was lost in the Akallabêth, the destruction of the Númenor.

Etymology

Aranrúth means "King's Ire" in Sindarin (from aran = "king" and rûth = "anger").
