Vardilmë was the second child and only daughter of Vardamir Nólimon, heir to Elros Tar-Minyatur, first King of Númenor. Her older brother took up the Sceptre as Tar-Amandil. Almost nothing is known of her life.

Etymology

Vardilmë's name is difficult to translate, but might mean "Devoted to Varda" in Quenya (an assimilation of Varda and -dil = "friend, lover, devoted to").
