365 Days of Middle-earth ~ Day 187: Fíriel

Fíriel (S. ‘Mortal-woman’) was the daughter of King Ondoher of Gondor. Following the death of her father and brothers in the Battle of the Camp, she became the Ruling Queen. Her husband Arvedui, a direct descendant of Isildur, claimed the throne; however, he was rejected, and the crown went to Eärnil II. Fíriel remained in the north with her husband, though it was likely she fled with her son Aranarth to Lindon when Arthedain was destroyed by Angmar.

  1. Any reason to why Arvendui was rejected from the throne?
