Question Who is...

Can anyone tell me who Beruthiel is? And please don't tell me she's Galadriel's sister! [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] I already know that's not true.

Thanks in advance!

Queen Berúthiel was the wife of Tarannon, twelfth king of Gondor, who took the name Falastur 'Lord of the Coasts' She lived in a loveless marriage surrounded by her cats who were universally hated and feared by all around her. Apparently her husband finally seeing sense had Berúthiel put on board a ship along with her cats and had her driven out to sea ....

Unfinished Tales. Part Four, Section II Note #7 has the most detailed information regarding this strange figure.

Any man who hates cats has NO sense in my book! [img]smilies/mad.gif[/img]
Sorry...I am a cat lover! Had to respectfully disagree about men who put their wife & her cats out to sea as having sense! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

..And I am not a cat lover so that's why it's sense! [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img] But seriously it's not the cats that are the issue. Berúthiel herself was a couple of Silmarils short of an Iron Crown. She was the first minimalist, apparently lived in monochrome and filled her gardens with tormented sculptures

The ship was last seen flying past Umbar under a sickle moon, with a cat at the masthead and another as a figure-head on the prow.
