Galadriel is the most powerful non-maiar character in The Lord of the Rings. She is also one of the oldest, aside from Fangorn and his fellow ents. Galadriel was born long before the First Age, during the third age of the Chaining of Melkor. She was born in Valinor, in the holy land of Aman and was the daughter of Finarfin, son of Finwe the high King. Although Galadriel was counted among the Noldor, her mother E‰rwen was of the Teleri, and her grandmother, Indis, was of the Vanyar.

She lived content in Aman for the untold long years until the release of Melkor. When Melkor (whom the elves after named Morgoth) poisoned the Two Trees and stole the great jewels, the Silmarils, Galadriel was among the forefront of those Noldor who defied the Valar and pursued him into Middle-Earth. She was the only woman among the leaders of the Rebellion. She broke with her father, Finarfin, when he turned back after the Kinslaying, although she herself took no part in that treachery.

For awhile, she dwelt with her brother Finrod on the isle of Tol Sirion, until First Age 51 when, after the vision of Ulmo, he moved to Nargothrond. At that time, she went to Doriath, where she met and married Celeborn and was instructed in wisdom by the maia Melian, wife of King ElwÎ. There, she bore her only child, CelebrÌan. At the fall of Doriath in circa First Age 509, she fled to Arvernien with Celeborn and CelebrÌan.

Galadriel was the only leader of the Rebellion to survive the Great Battle and the First Age. After the battle, the Valar refused to allow her to return to Aman. At first, she did not wish to, but over the ages that followed, her heart turned increasingly to the sea and Aman.

At the end of the First Age, they moved to Lindon and dwelt with Cirdan. Some years later, they moved to Eregion and dwelt there with Celebrimbor until the War of the Elves and Sauron brought that nation to an end. They then returned to Lindon. It was during her time in Eregion that the smith Celebrimbor forged the Rings of Power at the behest of Atannar, whom he later perceived to be Sauron. The three elven rings he kept free of Sauron's influence and gave one to Galadriel for safekeeping. This was Nenya, the Ring of Water, also known as the Ring of Adamant.

After the War of the Last Alliance and the start of the Third Age, Celeborn and Galadriel took up residence in Dol Amroth at the plea of Amroth himself, who moved to found Lûrien. There they lived for almost two thousand years until the death of Amroth in Third Age 1981, when they took over the lordship of Lûrien, leaving Dol Amroth in the keeping of the descendants of Imrazor.

In Lûrien, Galadriel set about hiding the realm, in a manner modelled on the Girdle of Melian, which hid the ancient realm of Doriath. With the Ring Nenya, she hid the activities of the Galadrim (the folk of Lûrien) from the eyes of Sauron and his minions. Throughout the Third Age, she lent aid and counsel to the enemies of Sauron, especially to Gandalf. It is said that her mind was so subtle, that few even among the Wise perceived her actions and plans.

During the War of the Ring, Galadriel gave shelter, counsel and gifts to the Fellowship, and refused the One Ring when offered it by Frodo. After the War, because of her unceasing opposition to Sauron and her support of the Free Peoples, the Valar finally lifted their ban against her return, and she went over the sea with the Last Riding of the Keepers of the Rings in Third Age 3021, after more than 6500 years in Middle-Earth.

Galadriel is said to be incredibly beautiful. Her hair caught and ever after reflected the light of the Two Trees in Aman. None who meet her ever come away unchanged, for she is a great personal force, in ways that mortal man cannot conceive. Those who meet her are awestruck, and speak of her in reverential tones.

Galadriel had two great gifts of insight. She could ocasionally forsee the future, but only rarely clearly. And she could look into the hearts of others and see their true desires. In that moment, the person into whose heart she looked also saw those desires clearly himself, not always a pleasant experience.

One of Galadriel's two great possessions is her mirror, which was a gift of Melian. It is a basin filled with water which allowed her visions of the future, the past and distant lands more clearly and powerfully than even the palantiri. It could also show things unexpected and unexplained. The Mirror also was wreathed in spells so that none could find it without her permission.

Her second great possession is Nenya, one of the three elven rings crafted by Celebrimbor and meant by Sauron to control their wearers. It is also known as the Ring of Water, or the Ring of Adamant, for its powers gave life and rejuvenation to those around it. With it, she protected first Dol Amroth and then Lûrien throughout the Third Age. She never wore it until Sauron's loss of the One Ring at the end of the Second Age.


1. Galadriel's personal force of being is hard to capture in statistics. She is, with Gandalf and Elrond, the driving force behind the millennia-long opposition to Sauron, and her plans extend to a vast number of small details and agents.

2. Galadriel certainly has many followers, which I bought under Celeborn. They might reasonably split the costs. Also, she might well be called a head of state, as queen of Lûrien.
