The Manhearted

Emeldir the wife of Barahir

A title given to Emeldir, who was the wife of Barahir and the mother of Beren Erchamion. After the ruin of the Dagor Bragollach, her husband and son remained in Dorthonion as hunted outlaws, but she led the women and children of her house, including Rían and Morwen, south into Brethil.


Notes

1

We have no dating for Emeldir's full lifespan, but we can be sure that she survived past the year I 455, the year in which she led the women and children of Dorthonion to safety in Brethil. She would have been forty-nine years old at that time, and she evidently lived on beyond that date in Brethil, but no details of her later life are recorded.
