Eldalótë

Revision as of 19:20, 11 July 2006 by Ebakunin (Talk | contribs)

Eldalôtë 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.

Eldalôtë means "High Elf of the Flower" in Quenya (from Elda = "High Elf" and lótë = "flower"). The Sindarin version of her name is Edhellos.
