Lúthien TinúvielLúthien Tinúviel (ca. 4700 F.A.) - The daughter of King Thingol and one of the fairest of all female Elves in Middle-earth.  Despite the fact that she could have married about any male Elf she wanted, it was a Man who won her heart (see Beren & Lúthien), a relationship that changed everything.

 

"...there came into the world Lúthien, the only child of Thingol and Melian...and the bright stars shone as silver fires; and there in the forest of Neldoreth Lúthien was born, and the white flowers of niphredil came forth to greet her as stars from the earth." ~The Silmarillion, chap. 10 (Of the Sindar)
