Silmaril If Elrond married Celebrian...

Who did Elros marry?

According to my sources, Elros did not marry. I got this information from the complete Guide to Middle-earth.

But Elros was the ancestor of the Kings of Númenor! He must have married someone, she was probably left nameless (as many women are in Tolkien's works)...Unless he was a free-lovin' fella. [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img]

I had always assumed that Vardamir Nolimon was Elros' son, but now i'm not sure. In UT it lists the Kings of Numenor and the first sentence in each description of the kings tells who his father was. Vardamir Nolimon tells his date of birth but does not name his father.

I havn't read anything that specifically states that Elros had no wife, and I don't know of any evidence that shows clearly that Vardamir was not Elros' son.

Vardamir was the son of Elros. In UT; Aldarion and Erendis, there is a family tree showing Elros to be Vardamir's dad, but it doesn't show his wife

Riding one day in the forest of the Westlands he saw a woman, whose dark hair flowed in the wind, and about her was a green cloak...and he knew her for Erendis...then suddenly he knew in himself the love that he bore her, and he felt the emptiness of his days.

Ahhh yes, good job. I forgot about this chart. And we can be sure that it's father/son and not simply king to king because it lists Elros' other children.

Thank you very much for your answers. I was worried that I might have missed something when I was looking up the charts and names and I kept on drawing blanks where ever I looked. ^_^
