Vinitharya

Revision as of 21:02, 26 September 2008 by Aule the Smith (Talk | contribs)

Vinitharya was the royal son of Valacar of Gondor and Vidumavi, daughter of the King of Rhovanion. When he returned to Gondor with his father, he was given the name Eldacar, a name he retained when he inherited Gondor's throne.

Etymology

Vinid-haria is a Gothic name meaning 'pasture-armyman' or 'Wend-armyman'.

Note that it should be pronounced as Vinit-harya (the way we pronounce plot-hole), and not as **ViniÞarya.
