Lindórië was born during the dark times of Númenor when the Númenorians, led by their Kings were turning against the Valar. However she belonged to the Faithful and instilled her beliefs in her daughter Inzilbêth, who passed these beliefs on to her elder son Inziladûn. Due to this upbringing, when Lindórië's grandson took the Sceptre of Númenor, he adopted the name Tar-Palantir in Quenya and attempted to reverse the influences of the King's Men.
Etymology[edit | edit source]
Lindórië is a Quenya name. Its meaning is not glossed, but Helge Fauskanger suggests that it means "She that arises in beauty" (compare with Melkor, which means "He that arises in Might") and consists of the compounds linda ("fair", "beautiful") and a feminine form of the ending in Melkor. According to Paul Strack the meaning of the name is unclear, but he suggests that its initial element might be derived from lindë ("singing", "song", "musical sound").
