Character Description and Notes: She was also called Lalwende, and it was this name which was Sindarinized into Lalwen. She and Fingolfin were very close and she accompanied him into exile. Presumably, Lalwen settled in Hithlum and may have been slain or captured after the Nirnaeth.

An interesting speculation contributed by Aerlinnel is that Irimë could have been Glorfindel's mother, explaining his golden hair and his allegiance to Turgon, who would then be his cousin.
