Írimë was a Noldorin Elf who was the third child and daughter of Finwë, High King of the Noldor and Indis, his second wife. She was the sister of Findis, Fingolfin, and Finarfin, as well as the half-sister of the infamous Noldorin lord Fëanor.[1]

[edit] History

Little is known about Írimë, except that during the Exile of the Noldor she went to Middle-earth across the Helcaraxë with her elder brother Fingolfin of whom she was close to, while the rest of her siblings remained in Valinor. Írimë's fate is unknown; she may have been slain or returned to Aman after the War of Wrath.[1]

[edit] Etymology

Írimë's mother-name was Lalwendë or in shortened form Lalwen, and by this name she was generally known.[1] In some versions Írimë is called Írien which may have been her father-name.[2]
