Beleg is not a Sinda but he is a Noldo.

In the chapter "Of Turin Turambar" of The Silmarillion it is said of the fact that Queen Melian gives lembas bread to Beleg Strongbow: "In nothing did Melian show greater favour to Túrin than in this gift; for the Eldar had never before allowed Men to use this waybread, and seldom did so again".

However, the article on this site states that Beleg is a Sindarin Elf.

Is he a Man or an Elf?

He is an elf. The "man" refers to Túrin Turambar. --Narfil Palùrfalas 21:36, 19 July 2007 (EDT)


Noldo vs Sinda

Beleg is not a Sinda but he is a Noldo. The only relevant text I could find anything concerning this is when Gwindor meets first Beleg: "Now falling into talk Flinding was overjoyed to have speech with a free Noldo..." (HoME, The Book of Lost Tales, Part Two, Turambar and the Foaloke, p.78; with Flinding is the later Gwindor and the free Noldo is Beleg). --81.210.170.125 19:01, 26 October 2009 (UTC)
