Word of the Day: Nimrodel, an Elf-maiden of Lórien, beloved of Amroth (Unfinished Tales), who lived in the Third Age. She dwelled beside the falls of Nimrodel, a mountain stream which was named after her. It means ‘Lady of the White Grotto.’
She had lived in Lothlorien for a long time, before the Noldor and the Sindar – and she did not like them so much as she was concerned they would bring turmoil.
She was lost after many of the Elves there left their dwellings, and Amroth waited for her in the White Mountains. However, she did not go there, and instead her voice was still heard by the falls which was named after her. Neither came back even after the Elves set sail.
She also had a house near the tree branches, dwelling near the trees as it was customary for the Elves of Lórien. It was also thought to be safer than sitting on the ground!
