Mithrellas was a Silvan Elf who, according the tradition of the House of Angelimir, accompanied Nimrodel from Lothlórien on her journey to the southern havens. Mithrellas, it is said, became lost in the woods of Dor-en-Ernil, where she was found by Imrazôr the Númenórean, who married her. So Elvish blood entered the line of the Princes of Dol Amroth, it was claimed, and her son Galador became the first of the long line of Princes. Mithrellas also bore Imrazôr a daughter, Gilmith. After the birth, she ran away at night and was never seen again.
Mithrellas is of unclear meaning, but as suggested by David Salo, it is likely to be Sindarin, a combination of mith ("grey") + lass ("leaf").
