"In an earlier version Hiril was the daughter of Barahir and Emeldir, and the younger sister of Beren, but this was later dropped."
- I don't think that Hiril the daughter of Barahir was actually "dropped" - her name only appears as a late(?) addition to the genealogical table of the House of Bëor (WJ 232) without any other mention in the stories. She must be an entirely different person from Hiril the daughter of Halmir (WJ 269), although just a name. At least C. Tolkien does not mention the other Hiril when he discusses the development of the character in the House of Haleth. --Tik 17:28, 14 December 2007 (EST)
