Lindir

Revision as of 20:58, 29 August 2006 by Dwarf Lord (Talk | contribs)

One of the Elves of Rivendell, named briefly in The Fellowship of the Ring. After Bilbo's rendition of his song of Eärendil, Lindir claimed that he was unable to tell which parts were written by Aragorn, and which by Bilbo himself, explaining that he knew little of Mortals and their ways. He seems to have been a minstrel or musician himself: at least, the most likely interpretation of the name Lindir is 'singer'.
