Creator of the Aldudénië

A Vanyarin Elf, famed for creating a lament for the Darkening of Valinor, the Aldudénië. At the time of Melkor's assault on the Two Trees, the Vanyar and other Elves of Valinor were celebrating a festival on Taniquetil, and so Elemmírë most likely witnessed the destruction of the Trees with his own eyes. The song he made to commemorate that fateful day was said to be known by all of the Eldar.
