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.
