Lord of the Breath of Arda

A poetic title for Manwë

A title given to Manwë the High King of Arda, reflecting his special province of the airs and winds of the World. This English version of the title is a free translation of Manwë's Elvish surname Súlimo. Manwë not only commanded the airs, but also the birds that flew on them: spirits in the shapes of hawks and eagles brought news to Manwë on the peak of Taniquetil from all the parts of the World.
