Daughter of Imrazôr and Mithrellas

According to tradition, Gilmith was the daughter of Imrazôr the Númenórean and the Elf-maiden Mithrellas. Mithrellas was part of the retinue of Nimrodel, who became lost as she journeyed out of the White Mountains and was rescued by Imrazôr, a Gondorian of Belfalas. Their son Galador became famous as the founding Prince of Dol Amroth, but Galador also had a younger sister, Gilmith, whose name apparently means 'star-mist'.
