Line 1: Line 1:
A title given to [[Erendis]] in [[Númenor]] after her betrothal to [[Tar-Aldarion|Aldarion]], 'Lady of the Star-brow' is a direct translation of the [[Elvish]] [[Tar-Elestirnë]]. The name comes from the fact that, at that time, Erendis took a diamond from [[Middle-earth]] (an earlier gift from Aldarion) and bound it to her brow with a silver fillet.
Erendis' 'Star-brow' served to found a tradition in Númenor, and we're told that after her time the Kings and Queens would wear a white jewel as a star on their brows, in place of a crown.
