Do we know from some source that Erestor belonged to the Noldor? Do we even know for sure that he was (most probably, though) an elf? In the first drafts where he appears in the Council of Elrond, he is called an elf (HoME VI, p. 395), but in the second version he is told to be a Half-elven, a relative of Elrond and one of the "Children of LĂșthien" (HoME VI, p. 400). Both of these mentions are absent from the final text, but I suppose he is never called a Noldo. --Tik 15:12, 25 June 2018 (UTC)

This is a great challenge. Let me do a little research and get back to you. This may be one of those assumptions we all make but which doesn't stack up under scrutiny. Thank you! --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 17:41, 18 July 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
