Physical Description
GenderFemale

Núneth was the wife of Beregar and the mother of Erendis, who unhappily married Tar-Aldarion. Núneth and her family lived in the western part of Númenor before Erendis left to join the household of Queen Almarian.

Despite knowing her daughter's headstrong nature, Núneth urged her to marry the prince and gave her advice over the years.

When Erendis dismissed the Elven-birds that had dwelt in her garden in Armenelos they flew to her parents' house and Núneth correctly divined that it was a sign that Aldarion had left his wife.[1]

Etymology

Núneth is Sindarin and means "Woman of the West" (from annûn, 'West', and -eth, a feminine suffix).
