Torhir Ifant

Revision as of 20:16, 20 March 2013 by Morgan (Talk | contribs)

Torhir Ifant wrote the Dorgannas Iaur, a book of lore of the realms of Beleriand. Nothing else is known about this character.[1]


David Salo has suggested that Ifant is the same gloss as the Noldorin word ifant ("old").[2]
