Revision as of 22:32, 13 December 2010 by Mithbot (Talk | contribs)

Eldalótë (Q, pron. [ˌeldaˈloːte]) was a Noldorin lady and wife of Angrod. Her son was Orodreth, a lord of Nargothrond. She does not seem to have joined her husband and son into exile, as she is not mentioned in any of the tales of Beleriand.
