Elestirnë

A name of the Lady Erendis

A name and title, more commonly seen in the form Tar-Elestirnë, given to Erendis of Númenor. Elestirnë means 'star-brow', and was a reference to the bright jewel she wore bound to her forehead. This was to become a custom and symbol of royalty among the Númenóreans in later years.


Notes

Erendis was eight-seven years old when she received the jewel that gave rise to the name Elestirnë. The timeline for this entry shows the period during which the title was used, rather than Erendis' entire lifespan.
