A descendant of Thingol's brother Elmo, and himself the brother of Celeborn the Lord of Lórien. His daughter Nimloth wedded Dior, Thingol's Heir, and so Galathil was a distant ancestor of both Elrond and Aragorn.
We have no dates for Galathil, except that we know that his daughter Nimloth was slain in the fall of Menegroth in I 509, and so Galathil himself must have predated that year (presumably by some considerable time). We have no information about his fate, but the fact that he is never mentioned after the end of the First Age implies that it is at least possible that he fell at the same time as his daughter in the sack of Menegroth.
