Physical Description

Isilmë was the second daughter of Tar-Elendil, fourth King of Númenor. Because of the law of agnatic primogeniture her younger brother would take up the Sceptre as Tar-Meneldur. Almost nothing is known of her life.[1]

Etymology[edit]

The word isilmë means 'moonlight' in Quenya (from isil = "moon" and -më = "denotes abstract or intangible things").[2]
