Lothíriel was the daughter of Prince Imrahil of Dol Amroth, and later the wife of King Éomer of Rohan.

History

Lothíriel was born in T.A. 2999. She had three older brothers: Elphir, Erchirion, and Amrothos.[1]

Lothíriel married Éomer, King of Rohan, in T.A. 3021. They had at least one son named Elfwine the Fair who became the 19th King of Rohan on the death of his father in Fo.A. 63.[2] Whether she still lived by that date, or died after, is unknown.

Etymology

Lothíriel may mean "flower garlanded maiden". The word loth means "flower, blossom". The element riel means "garlanded maiden", as also seen in Galadriel.

Other Versions of the Legendarium

In the published version of The Return of the King, Lothíriel and Éomer were wedded in "the last year of the Third Age". In Appendix B, "The Tale of Years" states that 3021 was the last of the Third Age,[3] and thus the wedding took place in that year. However, in the manuscript of Appendix B that Christopher Tolkien called 'T4' (which was later shortened for the published work) the wedding of Lothíriel and Éomer was set in "3022 (or Fourth Age 1)".[4]
