18. Thoughts of a Suitor of Princess Eärisse of Gondor
Her lineage is so high as to be absurd. Through Aragorn, she is descended directly from Elendil, all the Kings of Arnor and Numenor, Beren, Barahir and who knows how many other of the great Edain. Not forgetting Eärendil and Elwing, thus Turgon, Fingolfin, Finwë, Luthien, Elu Thingol, and Melian the Maia! Her mother adds Elrond, Celeborn and Galadriel, and thus all the Finwëans mentioned plus Finarfin, not leaving out Olwë, and Ingwë's sister! So, unless she duplicates Elu's feat, she must marry beneath herself. The only question is how low she is willing to go.
