Younger Children of Ilúvatar

Revision as of 05:39, 16 April 2012 by Gamling (Talk | contribs)

The Younger Children of Ilúvatar were Men, who awoke many thousands of years after the Elder Children, the Elves.[1]

In Nargothrond the Elf Gwindor rebuked Finduilas for weeping, stating that it was not fit for the Elder Children of Ilúvatar to wed the Younger.[2]
