  • Artist Info: Lúthien is a Telerin (Sindarin) princess, the only child of Elu Thingol,<br />
    king of Doriath, and his queen, Melian the Maia. <br />
    Lúthien's romance with the mortal man Beren, is one of the greatest stories of the Elder Days and was considered the "chief" of the Silmarillion tales by Tolkien himself. <br />
    Her character is revered even at the end of the Third Age and honoured still by the likes of Aragorn and various other peoples of Middle-earth. <br />
    The legacy that Lúthien left behind can be most clearly seen throughout the later ages in those who stem from her ancestry, including the Royal Family of Númenor, being the line of Elros of which Arathorn and his son Aragorn were descended, and Elrond Half-elven who was Lúthien's great-grandson. <br />
    She is described as the Morning Star of the Elves, a term meaning that she was the most beautiful of all her people at the height of their glory, In contrast, Luthien's descendant Arwen is called Evenstar, the Evening Star of the Elves, meaning that in her the beauty of Lúthien Tinúviel and the great Elvish Princesses of old have appeared on Middle-earth for the final time, and will never again appear after her. She is also first cousin once removed to Galadriel; as Galadriel's mother, Eärwen of Alqualondë, is the daughter of Thingol's brother.<br />
    She name Lúthien <br />
    appears to mean "enchantress" in a Beleriandic dialect of Sindarin, but it can also be translated "blossom". Tinúviel was a name given to her by Beren. It literally means "daughter of the starry twilight", which signifies "nightingale".<br />
