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.

And all the magic and miht he brought
Of Elvenesse into his words.

The sighing of the sea beyond,
Beyond the western world, on sand,
On sand of pearls in Elvenland.

There the Teleri dwelt a long age becoming different in tongue, and learning strange music of Osse, who made the sea-birds for their delight.

The Maia Ossë kept them company while they waited, and became their friend. Later when Ulmo returned with the island ferry, the Teleri had grown to love the sea. Ossë convinced Ulmo to anchor the island in the bay of Eldamar, off the shores of Aman, and persuaded many of the Teleri to remain in Middle-Earth.

Many jewels the Noldor gave them, opals and diamonds and pale crystals,
which they strewed upon the shores and scattered in the pools; marvellous were
the beaches of Elendë in those days.
