Míriel Serindë, also spelled Þerindë, ("The Broideress" in Quenya) was the first wife of Finwë, King of the Noldor. Her son was Curufinwë, whom she called Fëanor, which means "Spirit of Fire". Miriel's hair was described as being silver in appearance, an unusual color for one of the Noldor.
After giving birth to Fëanor she wished to die, saying that the birth had taken much of strength and spirit. Her fëa departed from her body, and she entered the Halls of Mandos. In essense, she had died of free will. This was seen as a shocking event by the Valar, and Manwë allowed Finwë to take another wife.
