Aldarion and Erendis by steamey Aldarion and Erendis by steamey
When Palarran was finished Tar-Meneldur was angry and forbade the Queen and Aldarion's sisters from bringing to the ship a bough of Oiolairė, the token of friendship with Ossė and Uinen. Erendis instead of Aldarion's kin brought a bough to the ship, which first caused the prince to love the maiden.

 I would just like to thank you for posting one of the few images of Tar-Aldarion that I've seen posted anywhere and congratulate you on having made it a very excellent image to boot!:) (Smile)

Beautiful as usual. Its a shame their love ended so tragically.

That is because Erendis could not overcome Aldarion's first love, his desire to sail upon the Sea and see what lay on its further shores. Here in Steamy's nicely staged painting, she is trying to get along, in hope of winning Aldarion's heart as a friendly rival to the Sea.

When I read both of your comments, I knew this was a man speaking.

If you thought I was a woman I would be astonished! :D  I am not unsure if you approved or disapproved of my comment. Aldarion's character is a real-world type, the wanderer & explorer whose heart is not at home, but ever desiring to be out and away, looking for new things. There are many poems and songs dedicated to the idea, some favorable and some not. Erendis was a homebody at heart, and not inclined to patiently wait for her explorer-prince to return home, so things got complicated.

Indeed.It looks like Tolkien quite rarely wrote happy love stories.

He kept the feelings of his chosen period of literature, which stood for love itself, and one having loved, more than if it got the trite Hollywood ending. I suppose the Professor would have agreed with Sit Thomas Malory's elegy on the love of Lancelot & Guinevere. At the same time, his couples' loss is made meaningful for us by the fact they had something to lose to begin with.
