** Galadriel was originally called Artanis ("Noblewoman" in Quenya), she was given the name Galadriel ("Maiden crowned with a radiant garland" in Sindarin) by her husband Celeborn.


Added DiffLines:

* RebelliousPrincess: Galadriel is a princess of both the Noldor (through her father) and the Teleri (through her mother) and she rebelled against the Valar themselves by joining the Noldorin rebellion and leaving Valinor for Middle-earth without their permission. [[note]]Tolkien's later writings attempted to change this by making her completely innocent of any involvement in the Kinslaying and rebellion of the Noldor but stating she left Valinor separately.[[/note]] She remained under the Doom of Mandos and was banished from Valinor for thousands of years until [[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings she refused the temptation of One Ring]] and her long banishment was finally lifted.

** Galadriel. She fought in defence of her Telerin kin against the House of Fëanor during the Kinslaying at Alqualondë and was the "only female to stand tall in those days". Tolkien also described her as a match for any of the greatest athletes of the Eldar.

* MedievalStasis: From the beginning of First Age to the end of the Third, there's next to nothing in the way of technological advancement: even the ''helms'' of the human armies stick with roughly the same design. Possibly the result of the CreativeSterility listed above.

** As Aulë finds out, even the good Valar cannot create sentient life with free will or souls, because that requires the Secret Fire that only Ilúvatar can grant.

Because Aulë's intentions with the Dwarves were good, if perhaps a bit misguided, Ilúvatar intervenes and grants the Dwarves sentience and souls.

* ''Akallabêth'' (The Downfall of Númenor): The isle of Númenor is given to Men who fought in the war against Melkor as a reward by the Valar. Over the centuries, the Númenóreans grow proud. All culminates in the reign of Ar-Pharazôn, who, driven by his fear of death and the lies of Sauron, dares to invade the land of the Valar. As a punishment, Númenor is destroyed and sinks into the Sea.

** The ending of ''Akallabêth''. Númenor is destroyed, Dúnedain are exterminated, their kingdom is finished, and only a handful of stranded exiles survive. Sauron's physical form is killed, but he reincarnates quickly and re-establishes ''his'' kingdom.

The ''only'' good thing is that his days as the manipulative Deceiver are over, because he can never assume an attractive form again.

** Maedhros, who recovered from decades of torment by Morgoth to "wield his sword with his left hand more deadly than his right had been." During battle, the orcs fled from him in terror. He also managed to survive to the end of the First Age, which is pretty much a feat in itself.

'''''The Silmarillion''''' is Creator/JRRTolkien's book of the history of [[TolkiensLegendarium Middle-earth]], from the [[CreationMyth creation of the universe]] to the end of the Third Age. Tolkien had been [[DevelopmentHell working on it for most of his life]] until [[AuthorExistenceFailure his death]] in 1973. His first book ''Literature/TheHobbit'' was not originally planned to share the same setting, [[CanonWelding but ended up that way,]] and its sequel ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'' continued and concluded the narrative of the setting. It was posthumously edited by his son and literary executor Christopher (with assistance from Creator/GuyGavrielKay, later a fantasy author himself) and [[SavedFromDevelopmentHell finally published]] in 1977.
