Aranwë

The father of Voronwë the mariner

Aranwë
Unnamed
wife1
Voronwë

An Elf of the House of Fingolfin. Though not much is known about him for sure, he seems to have been a nobleman of Gondolin (at least, his name means 'noble one', and his son Voronwë came from Turgon's Hidden City).


Notes

1

The wife of Aranwë is never given a name, but it is known that she was a Grey-elf who belonged to the kin of Círdan the Shipwright. Círdan was lord of the coastland regions of the Falas, directly southward of Aranwë's old home in Nevrast, a fact that further reinforces the idea that Aranwë himself had a degree of noble blood.
