Guinevere's Tears - Diane & David Arkenstone (Enaid) [link]


Hey :iconj-u-d-a-s: I didn't forget your birthday sweetie....Honest! :lmao: I am just really late as usual :giggle: I hope you like it :glomp:

I have called her Tinuviel (Nightingale) Because that was Berens name for her :love:

Lúthien is a Telerin (Sindarin) princess, the only child of Elu Thingol, king of Doriath, and his queen, Melian the Maia.
Lúthien's romance with the mortal man Beren is one of the greatest stories of the Elder Days and was considered the "chief" of the Silmarillion tales by Tolkien himself.
Her character is revered even at the end of the Third Age and honoured still by the likes of Aragorn and various other peoples of Middle-earth.
The legacy that Lúthien left behind can be most clearly seen throughout the later ages in those who stem from her ancestry, including the Royal Family of Númenor,
being the line of Elros of which Arathorn and his son Aragorn were descended, and Elrond Half-elven who was Lúthien's great-grandson.

Luthien was known as the Morning Star, and like her decendant Arwen (Evening Star) fell in love with a mortal man. But her father, Thingol, was determined not to let Beren marry his daughter,
and set a seemingly impossible task as the bride price: Beren had to bring him one of the Silmarils from Morgoth's iron crown, which, after many perils he did, and they were married.
But at this time Carcharoth the greatest werewolf of all, was ravaging all living beings on the borders of Doriath. And so Beren, Thingol, Huan the Hound of Valinor, Mablung of the Heavyhand and Beleg Strongbow went out with other Elves to defeat the beast. In this Beren was assaulted by the wolf. Huan then leaped to his aid and killed the beast, but died soon after from mortal wounds, by his friend Beren's side.
Then Beren was carried to Doriath where he died in Lúthien's arms, after she bade him to await her by the great sea in the afterlife.
In grief, Lúthien lay down and died as well, going to the Halls of Mandos, where the spirits of the dead await re-embodiment in Valinor (for Elves) and departure from the circles of the world entirely (for Men).
There she sang a song of woe before the throne of Mandos Lord of the Dead, of the tribulations and suffering of both Elves and Men, the greatest ever sung, so touching that Mandos was moved to pity for the only time.
As a result he summoned Beren from the houses of the dead and Lúthien's spirit met his once again by the shores of the sea. Lúthien knew that this would be their final meeting, since Beren could not remain on the earth beyond his time and she was thus faced with the prospect of eternal widowhood. Mandos consulted with Manwë, King of Arda. Even Manwë could not change the fate of Men, and so he presented Lúthien with the only choice possible: to live in the immortal land of Valinor, where she could forget all her grief and enjoy eternal happiness along with her people and the Gods (Valar) but without Beren, or to return to the land of Middle-earth together with Beren as a mortal herself, accepting the Doom of Men and sharing in whatever unknown fate awaits them outside the Circles of the World. She chose this latter option. With this she accepted death, and although it was not the fate of her race, she turned creation upside down for her love of Beren and relinquished everything for him and became a mortal woman.

Based on "The Lay of Luthien" By JRR Tolkien

Although the Silmarillion describes her as having dark hair and grey eyes, looks great.

Yes! She is a princess of elves :love: Thank you I wanted to soften the overall portrait, and sometimes white can be very stark, I thought that the slight golden colour on the dress and veil made it look soft and warm. :D Thank you for your comment Dmitry! :huggle:
