Eldalótë was the wife of Angrod. Their son was Orodreth, a lord of Nargothrond.
She probably joined the Exile of the Noldor, as her name was translated into Sindarin in later legend, but she is not mentioned in any of the tales of Beleriand.[note 1]
Eldalótë is Quenya for "Elven-flower", from Elda ("Elf") + lótë ("flower"). The Sindarin form of her name was Eðellos (spelled Edhellos).
- ↑ This can be assumed by considering a note that Finarfin was "the only name of a Ñoldo who did not come into exile to receive a Sindarin form"; therefore as Eldalótë also had a Sindarin name, she was one of the Exiles.
