The Elf Maiden

Arwen Undómiel
14 Mar 2014 | From Katerina of Czech Republic

Arwen Undómiel, often called Arwen Evenstar, was the betrothed of Aragorn II. She is the daughter of Elrond and Celebrían (and therefore grand-daughter of Galadriel). She rejects her Elven immortality (which she had the ability to do, since she was a half-elf, thus having the choice to be counted as an elf or a man) to marry Aragorn and die with him.

Liv Tyler's portrayal of Arwen gave her international recognition. One of my favourite lines from the movie (Fellowship of the Rings) was when Arwen said these words to Aragorn: "I would rather share one lifetime with you than face all the ages of this world alone."
