ambar-metta

From Tolkien Gateway
"Sinomë maruvan ar Hildinyar tenn' Ambar-metta!"
Oath of Elendil

Ambar-metta is the Quenya term that refers to the End of the World.

It is mostly known as was part of a line used by Elendil upon his arrival to Middle-earth, declaring "In this place will I abide, and my heirs, unto the ending of the world". Elessar would later use this line at his coronation.[1]

Etymology[edit]

Ambar-metta, meaning "World's-end", is a composition of two Quenya words, ambar ("world") and metta ("end").[2] The alternate form ambarmetta was used in one of the sentences related to the Alcar mi tarmenel na Erun.[3]
