The House of Dol Amroth was a noble house of Gondor whose male heirs were the Princes of Dol Amroth descended from Galador the first prince. Legend told that his father, Imrazôr the Númenórean married a Silvan Elf named Mithrellas, and from that time forward the house and kin were noble by blood and fair in face and mind.[1]

[edit] Background and history

A family of Faithful from Númenor had ruled over the land of Belfalas since the Second Age. This family of Númenóreans were akin to the Lords of Andúnië, and thus related to Elendil and descended from the House of Elros.[2] After the Downfall of Númenor they had been given the title Prince of Belfalas by Elendil[3] and their land, now a fief of Gondor, was called Dor-en-Ernil. He granted this family a noble title, making them the hereditary Princes of Belfalas.

One branch of their descendants removed to Lossarnach.[4] Morwen Steelsheen, a daughter of that family, married Thengel of Rohan. Through Morwen, both Thengel's heir Théoden and his grandson Éomer carried the blood of the ancient Princes of Belfalas.

One of those princes, Adrahil, fought under King Ondoher against the Wainriders.[5][note 1]

[edit] Notes

  1. Adrahil is mentioned as a "Prince of Dol Amroth" in the narrative, but this is anachronistic as the city was named Dol Amroth much later. Cf. Adrahil I#Other versions of the legendarium
  2. Mithrellas was a companion of Nimrodel who was lost in the woods of Belfalas and harboured by Imrazôr, who wed her.
  3. The 15th prince was slain by Corsairs of Umbar.
  4. The 16th prince was slain in battle.
  5. Finduilas was said to wither in Minas Tirith away from the sea and died very young.
