Mithrellas was a Silvan Elf who, according the tradition of the House of Angelimir, accompanied Nimrodel on her journey to the southern havens. Mithrellas, it is said, became lost in the woods of Belfalas, where she was found by Imrazôr the Númenórean, who married her. So Elvish blood entered the line of the Princes of Dol Amroth, it was claimed, and her son Galador became the first of the long line of Princes. Mithrellas also bore Imrazôr a daughter, Gilmith.[1][2] After the birth, she ran away at night and was never seen again.[3]

[edit] Etymology

The first element in Mithrellas is likely the Sindarin word mith ("grey").
