The Belle Époque

The Belle Époque or La Belle Époque (French for “Beautiful Era”) was a period of Western history characterized by optimism, regional peace, economic prosperity and technological, scientific, and cultural innovations. In the climate of the period, the arts flourished. Many masterpieces of literature, music, theater, and visual art gained recognition. The Belle Époque was named in retrospect, when it began to be considered a “Golden Age” in contrast to the horrors of World Wars. A public’s nostalgia for the Belle Époque period was based on the peace and prosperity connected with it in retrospect.

Ingwë Ingweron | The High King of all the Elves



Ingwë is the King of the Vanyar and the High King of all the Elves. He was the leader of the first Kindred of Elves of the Vanyar tribe and his name means “first one, Chief” in Quenya.


Ingwë was reckoned as High King of all the Eldalië, the Elves of the Great Journey, and because of this he is called Ingwë Ingweron, the “Chief of the Chieftains”. He lived in Taniquetil, ruling from beneath Manwë High King of Arda.

N a m á r i ë | Galadriel’s Song

Ah! like gold fall the leaves in the wind,
long years numberless as the wings of trees!
The years have passed like swift draughts
of the sweet mead in lofty halls beyond the West,
beneath the blue vaults of Varda wherein the stars
tremble in the song of her voice, holy and queenly.

Who now
shall refill the cup for me?

Celebrían, the Lady of Rivendell

She is an Elven noblewoman, the daughter of Celeborn and Galadriel, wife of Elrond, and mother of Elladan, Elrohir, and Arwen. She was called the Lady of Rivendell. Her name means “silver crown-gift” in Sindarin.

Celebrían was waylaid by Orcs in the Redhorn Pass on Caradhras in the Misty Mountains. She was captured and tormented and received a poisoned wound. She was
rescued by her sons and healed by Elrond, but “after fear and torment” she could no longer find joy in Middle-earth, so she passed to the Grey Havens and over the Sea in the following year.

HITHLUM

Hithlum was cold and rainy, but quite fertile. The Noldor landed here in the Firth of Drengist and first camped at the shores of Lake Mithrim.

Later in the First Age, Hithlum was continually under attack by Morgoth, finally being lost after the Nírnaeth Arnoediad.

Hithlum was completely destroyed during the War of Wrath.

Finrod
and
Amarië

According to the Quenta Silmarillion, Amarië did not follow Finrod into exile. The Grey Annals add to this that she wasn’t permitted to follow
him. In the Shibboleth of Fëanor we read that ‘Finrod left his wife in Valinor and had no children
in exile’. No name is given here, but it seems likely that this refers
to to Amarië. 
After his death
Finrod went to the Halls of Mandos, ‘but it is said that released soon
from Mandos, he went to Valinor and there dwells with Amarië (Grey
Annals).

Ar-Pharazôn


But Pharazon came to her, and she was glad, and forsook the
allegiance of her father for the time, being enamoured of Pharazon.
And in this they broke the laws of Numenor that forbade marriage
even in the royal house between those more nearly akin than cousins
in the second degree. But they were too powerful for any to gainsay
them.
