Alphros (T.A. 3017 - Fo.A. 95).[1] was the twenty-fourth Prince of Dol Amroth.[2]

[edit] History

Alphros was born near the end of the Third Age, and was only a toddler when the War of the Ring raged in Gondor. Growing up in the Fourth Age, he became Prince after his father Elphir's death, and served under King Elessar. He died in Fo.A. 95.

[edit] Etymology

Alphros is Sindarin for "Swan-foam", from alph "swan" and ros "foam".
