Edit: Sophia, I think that you were referring to my previous attempt, which I unfortunately had to delete because I realised that it didn't obey the rule of starting with the first letter of the last answer. [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img] It was a good one, so I shall have to keep it in reserve.

Well, you know what letter it starts with. (that's S, for the newcomers) Two of the words are names, the other two are the connection between the names. She is also known as
'the air maiden of the fort of sound'

The first is her name. The last is her father's. The middle two are the connection between them, which is now pretty obvious.

Okay, this is getting ridiculous. She is the ancestress of the two figures pictured at the Argonath. Her father is the fourth king of Numenor. I can't give you any more hints without actually saying her name. [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img]
