Tindómiel

The daughter of Elros Tar-Minyatur

Encyclopedia of Arda Timeline
Years of the Trees First Age Second Age Third Age Fourth Age and Beyond

The second child, and only daughter, of Elros Tar-Minyatur the first King of Númenor. Aside from her name, which means 'daughter of twilight', we know almost nothing of her. Her only mention in records is a single appearance in a genealogical chart showing the early descendants of her father, where she is shown beside her brothers Vardamir, Manwendil and Atanalcar.


Notes

1

Tindómiel's dates are not recorded, but we know that she must have been born after II 61 (the date of birth of her elder brother Vardamir). In cases where we do have dates, the Númenóreans typically left a period of ten years or more between children, so Tindómiel was most likely born in or after II 71. Assuming her lifespan was equivalent to that of her brother, she would have lived until about II 481.
