Éarendel

"a complete consistency [...] is not to be looked for, and could only be achieved, if at all, at heavy and needless cost." — Christopher Tolkien
This article's canonicity is disputed.

Éarendel was the name of Éadwine's ship. The ship, along with Éadwine, disappeared in the year 878 AD, and no trace of both was ever found.[1]

Éarendel was also the name of a ship in 1947, on which Edwin, along with three other sailors, went off into Atlantic and never returned.[2]
