Elf-Man

A name for Túrin used in Nargothrond

Túrin son of Húrin was fostered in the halls of King Thingol of Doriath, and so his use of the Sindarin language, and his manner of carrying himself, were patterned on the court of the Lord of Beleriand. When Túrin came at last to Nargothrond, he chose to hide his identity, and claimed to be no more than a hunter named Agarwaen. Many of the Elves of Nargothrond, though, noted his noble and Elf-like bearing, and took to calling him Adanedhel, which translates as the 'Elf-Man'.


Notes

1

These are the years when Túrin dwelt in Nargothrond, from his arrival at the city with Gwindor, to its fall and sack five years later.
