Elphir was the twenty-third Prince of Dol Amroth.

History

Elphir was the oldest son of the four children of Imrahil. He was born in T.A. 2987, and was already a man by the time of the War of the Ring, but no feat of his was recorded. He had two brothers, Erchirion and Amrothos, and a sister, Lothíriel.

After his death in Fo.A. 67, he was succeeded by his son Alphros.[1]

Etymology

Elphir seems to mean "Swan-lord", from Sindarin alph ("swan") and hîr ("lord").
