Note that the names of Lothíriel's three elder brothers - Elphir, Erchirion and Amrothos - appear only in volume 12 of The History of Middle-earth, and may not be canonical.

The youngest child, and only daughter, of Prince Imrahil of Dol Amroth. After the War of the Ring in the year III 3021, when she would have been twenty-two years old, she became queen to King Éomer of Rohan. The royal couple had a son, Elfwine, who bore a close resemblance to Lothíriel's father Imrahil, and may have inherited some of the Elvish blood that was said to run in the veins of that family.


Notes

1

Lothíriel's birthdate comes from the drafts of Appendix A to The Lord of the Rings, given in volume 12 of The History of Middle-earth, and so is not strictly canonical. The only definite date we have for Lothíriel is III 3021, the year she wedded Éomer of Rohan.
