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.

The Silmarillion aesthetic | Indis the Fair


There was a fair lady of the Vanyar,
Indis of the House of Ingwë, golden-haired and tall, and in all ways unlike Míriel.

She
had loved Finwë in her heart, ever since the days when the Vanyar and
the Ñoldor lived close together. In one of his wanderings Finwë met her
again upon the inner slopes of Oiolossë, the Mountain of Manwë and
Varda; and her face was lit by the golden light of Laurelin that was shining in the plain of Ezellohar
below. In that hour Finwë perceived in her eyes the love that had
before been hidden from him. So it came to pass that Finwë and Indis
desired to be wedded

and
Finwë loved her greatly, and was glad again.
