The Silmarillion aesthetic | Eärwen, the Swan-Maiden of Alqualondë

Eärwen was the daughter of Olwë, King of the Teleri of Aman. She was known as the “Swan-maiden of Alqualondë”.

She was the wife of Finarfin,
a Noldo of the House of Finwë,

and mother of Finrod,
Orodreth (Silm only),
Angrod, Aegnor, and Galadriel.


Eärwen stayed in Aman after the Flight of the Noldor. She presumably still lives there with Finarfin.

No other player has there been,
no other lips or fingers seen

who young when Laurelin yet bloomed
to endless lamentation passed
and in the tombless sea was cast.

Maglor was the second of the Sons of Fëanor. He had more of his mother Nerdanel’s gentle spirit than any of his brothers. Maglor was known for his poetry and singing, but in Tirion he swore the Oath of Fëanor and shared in the woes it bred.

..and thus at last
and latest they came to Aman and the shores of Eldamar.

but most of all they sailed in their swift ships on the waters of the
Bay of Elvenhome, or walked in the waves upon the shore with their hair
gleaming in the light beyond the hill.
