Alat�riel Mistress of Magic
Years of the Trees and First Age

When a fourth child was born to Finarfin, prince of the Noldor, and E�rwen, princess of the Teleri, her father named her Artanis, which is "noble woman". She was unusually tall and strong as she grew, and so E�rwen�s name for her was Nerwen, "man-maiden". It is said among the Eldar that her hair had captured the light of the Two Trees in Valinor, which resulted a very unique and dazzling colour of gold and silver. According to a legend, this is how F�anor conceived the idea of capturing the light of the trees inside the Silmarils. Despite her mixed blood, she was identified as a princess of the Noldor, as her father was the third son of Finw�, High King of the Noldor.

During the Darkening of Valinor, she was very independent and visionary. She swore no oaths but the words of F�anor concerning Middle-earth kindled a desire in her heart, as she was eager to see those wide unguarded lands and rule a realm of her own. During the troubles that followed, even though she participated in the revolt of the Noldor, she fought against F�anor in defence of her mother's kin in the Kinslaying of Alqualond�. Accounts suggest she travelled among the second group led by Fingolfin, which joined the battle at Alqualond� late and without knowing how it had started. Some of that group had not participated in the killing, although it is not clear who and how many. Dismayed by the prophecy of Mandos, her father Finarfin abandoned the march of the Noldor and returned to Valinor. But Galadriel and her brothers crossed the Helcarax� in far north and arrived to the northern shores of Hither Lands.

In Beleriand, Galadriel and her eldest brother Finrod Felagund came to Doriath as guests of Elu Thingol, the King of Doriath. It was there she met Celeborn, a kinsman of Thingol, who would become her husband and companion in Middle-earth. When her brother Finrod departed to the Caverns of Narog to establish the stronghold of Nargothrond, Galadriel did not go with him and remained in Doriath with her husband, though she occasionally visited her brother in Nargothrond.

During her days in Doriath, Galadriel became friends with Queen Melian the Maia, and they spoke often to one another about Valinor. Melian was eager to learn the causes of the Exile of the Noldor, but Galadriel would tell her nothing of what occurred after the death of the Trees. Eventually, however, as Melian�s guesses became more shrewd and accurate, Galadriel revealed the tale to her, though still leaving out the death of Finw�, the Kinslaying, and the burning of the Ships at Losgar. Melian was able to discern some of what was left unsaid, and still more came as rumors to Thingol�s ears. At last, egged on by the accusing words of Thingol, Angrod told all. Galadriel was not expelled from Doriath because of Thingol�s sympathy to the houses of Finarfin and Fingolfin for the wrongs they had suffered. All the same, she went to Nargothrond to live with Finrod for a time. Presumably, she returned to Doriath to live with her husband.

Galadriel did not have any significant role in the general course of events in the War of the Jewels. She and Celeborn survived, or even were not present in the destruction of Nargothrond in F.A. 495 and Doriath in F.A. 503/F.A. 506. It is not unlikely that after the destruction of Doriath they went to the Havens of Sirion along with many survivors of Beleriand (or even with their Telerin kin to the Isle of Balar with C�rdan). Thus they even survived the Third Kinslaying, and after that, the War of Wrath.

After the overthrow of Morgoth, a ban was set upon her return to Aman by the Valar, but she was proud and replied that she had no interest in returning.

Second Age

After the War of Wrath, Galadriel and Celeborn came to Lindon with the other survivors of Beleriand. They ruled over the fiefdom of Harlindon, which was composed mostly of Sindar, under the High King Gil-galad. Eventually the couple moved to a new land called Eregion in far eastwards of Lindon. It was ruled by Celebrimbor, a grandson of F�anor and distant cousin of Galadriel. They dwelt there for a time and Galadriel was probably present during the crafting of the Rings of Power. Eventually Galadriel and Celeborn made contact with the Nandor of Amd�r, who dwelt in a forest realm called Lind�rinand (Vale of the Land of Singers) across the Misty Mountains. They crossed the Hithaeglir through Khazad-d�m and relocated to there, becoming great among the Wood-elves.

Celebrimbor and the jewelsmiths of Gwaith-i-M�rdain collaborated with Annatar on the great process of making Rings of Power. By Annatar�s help, the Elves of Eregion created many rings, but both Celebrimbor and Annatar created greater rings of their own in secret. Celebrimbor wrought the Three Rings of the Elves, which were far more powerful than the lesser rings. Annatar, however, wrought the One Ring. When he placed it on his finger, the Elves were aware of his treachery, and took off their rings. Celebrimbor, afraid for his life but even more for the safety of the Three Rings, sent them to two of the Wise: Narya and Vilya for Gil-galad (who eventually gave Narya to C�rdan), and Nenya for Galadriel. Very few even of the Eldar knew who hid each of these Rings. Celebrimbor was slain by Sauron not long after, and Eregion was laid waste. But the Three Rings were safe.

At this time, many Noldor of Sindarin speech migrated to the realm of Amd�r, escaping from the destruction of Eregion, and Celeborn fortified it against Sauron's attempts to cross the Anduin. Soon thereafter, the White Council (not to be confused with the first White Council of the Third Age) was held in the newly-found realm of Imladris, where Elrond met and fell in love with Celebr�an, the daughter that Galadriel and Celeborn had at some time during the Second Age.

In time Amd�r, King of Lind�rinand, was slain in the Battle of Dagorlad during the War of the Last Alliance. Celeborn may have participated in the war, but the greatest effect it had on the twain was the destruction of Sauron and the loss of the One Ring. Galadriel was now free to use her ring.

Third Age

When King Amroth son of Amd�r perished, Celeborn and Galadriel ruled Lind�rinand jointly, and were called the Lord and Lady of Galadhrim. Galadriel planted the mallorn seeds brought with her from Lindon, the only mallorns east of the Sea, and afterwards the realm was called L�rinand (Valley of Gold) and Laurelind�rinand (Valley of the Singing Gold), which through some transformations turned into the later name of Lothl�rien or L�rien. They established Caras Galadhon, and the realm of Lothl�rien was one of light and life. With Nenya, the Ring of Water, Galadriel made the realm of L�rien even greater. With the power of her ring, she protected it from the intrusion of evils throughout the Third Age.It was during their days of power and glory in Lothl�rien that Celebr�an, their only child, married Elrond, a close friend of Galadriel�s and bearer of Vilya after the death of Gil-galad during the Alliance. Celeborn and Galadriel had three grandchildren by her, one of whom, Arwen, they were especially close to. But Celebr�an was waylaid and tortured by Orcs in T.A. 2509, and passed West over the sea.

In T.A. 2463 the White Council was formed. Galadriel, being one of the Wise and the greatest threat to Sauron alive, was one of the members. Celeborn may have been as well, but this is not known for sure. She was a good friend of Gandalf, and recommended that he be made head of the Council. But this distinction fell instead to Saruman, whom she distrusted.

During the War of the Ring, Galadriel met the Fellowship of the Ring in T.A. 3019. She especially was attentive to the Hobbit Frodo Baggins, who was the bearer of the One Ring. She showed him Nenya, and let him gaze into her mirror of seeing. He offered her the One Ring, and despite the extreme temptation, she resisted it successfully. She sent the Fellowship off on their quest furnished with gifts. The two most important gifts she gave were to Aragorn, whom she knew well and liked, and a dwarf named Gimli. To Aragorn she gave the Elfstone, which she and her daughter Celebr�an had worn. This jewel was created for her by Celebrimbor in Eregion, in remembrance of the first Elfstone, that was now lost. She was unsure as to what to give Gimli, and asked what he wanted. After complimenting her beauty, he requested a single strand of her hair. Galadriel remembered the posing of a similar question by F�anor, but had searched Gimli�s heart and knew that his intentions were pure. She rewarded him with three strands, which he was later to put into an imperishable crystal in memory of her. Not long after the departure of the Fellowship she received the resurrected Gandalf. She reclothed and refurnished him, giving him a new staff. After Gandalf left, Lothl�rien was subjected to three successive attacks by armies coming out of Dol Guldur. By the power of her Ring they were thrice repulsed. Celeborn then led an attack on Dol Guldur itself. Once the dark fortress was in the hands of the Galadhrim, Galadriel came, threw down its walls, and purified it of its evil. It was her last act of power, for the One Ring was destroyed, and the strength of Nenya waned and eventually vanished almost completely.

Galadriel attended the wedding of Aragorn with Arwen, then returned to Lothl�rien. But in T.A. 3021, two years later, she bade farewell to Celeborn her husband and went West to Valinor. With her went the other two bearers of the Rings, Gandalf and Elrond, and Frodo and Bilbo Baggins who had borne the One Ring. They passed West, and came never again to Middle-earth.

Galadriel wielded an incredible amount of magical power, and was said to be the greatest of the �oldor after F�anor. She was a friend of Melian the Maia and it is possible that Melian taught Galadriel many things during the First Age. The nature of her magic is not well understood. Much of Galadriel's power stemmed from the great artifact she controlled, Nenya, the Ring of Water. In some tales, Galadriel is depicted with the power to communicate over vast distances and to predict the future. She also stated that she could perceive the mind of Sauron, while he could not perceive hers. Her mirror could reveal events from the past, present and future. Whatever her powers may have been, they were enough to protect L�rien from any attack, and it is said that only Sauron himself could have overcome this. Galadriel was also familiar with �sanwe, the skill of entering others' minds. After the destruction of the One Ring Galadriel communicated mentally with Elrond and Gandalf on their return journey from Minas Tirith.

Galadriel was incredibly enigmatic, and even the immensely powerful Saruman, and an Elf as perceptive as Elrond found it difficult to understand her powers and her past. Her power was key to the destruction of Dol Guldur, a fortress whose power was multiplied by Sauron's magic. Besides her magical powers, Galadriel was very wise and highly intelligent. She was not fooled by Sauron in the Second Age and therefore suggested to Celebrimbor to hide the Three Rings. She had great physical beauty and charisma, so much that she charmed the dwarf Gimli, who had a deep grudge against Elves. Whatever Galadriel's powers, they were such to bring doubt in the minds of the non-Elven inhabitants of Middle-earth.
