The mother of Erendis


A lady of the Westlands of Númenor, who lived in the eighth and ninth centuries of the Second Age. Her husband was Beregar, and together they had a daughter, Erendis. It was Erendis' troubled courtship and marriage to King Tar-Aldarion that formed the subject of one of very few tales to survive the Downfall of Númenor, Aldarion and Erendis. Núneth's part in that tale is a small one, but she is shown as wise and insightful, offering valuable, but little heeded, advice to her daughter.
