Eldarion (Q, pron. [elˈdari.on]) was the only recorded son of Arwen and Elessar.

Contents

History

Eldarion's birth was significant in that he represented the reunion of the lines of Eärendil's sons Elros (through Aragorn) and Elrond (through Arwen) separated for millennia. Also, he represented (through Galadriel) the union of the Three Houses of the Edain with the ancient House of Finarfin.

Eldarion became the second King of the Reunited Kingdom after the death of his father Elessar in Fo.A. 120. He was also recorded to have several sisters.[1]

A hundred-and-five years after the fall of the Dark Tower, he encountered a renewal of Morgoth-worship during his reign.[2]

Etymology

His name in Quenya means "Scion of the Eldar". In Letter 338, J.R.R. Tolkien spelled this name Eldaron, this is probably a typographic error.[3]
