Almiel (Q, pron. [ˈalmi.el], stem Almield-) was the third child and second daughter of Tar-Meneldur and Almarian. Her older brother was Anardil, who when he became king was known as Tar-Aldarion.
When Aldarion built the great ship Palarran Tar-Meneldur was angry. Though Queen Almarian stayed the king from prohibiting Aldarion from sailing, the king did forbid his wife and daughters from bringing a bough of oiolairë to the ship. Because Almarian, Ailinel, and Almiel obeyed the king's command it gave Erendis the opportunity to present the token of goodwill to the prince, which kindled love in Aldarion for Erendis.
Almiel is a Quenya name. Its meaning is not glossed, but Paul Strack suggests it means "Blessed Daughter" and is a compound of almë ("good (or blessed) thing", "blessing", "piece of good fortune") and -iel (feminine suffix, "-daughter").
