Challenge Details

(Correct me if I've gotten the name wrong). She captivated me in what few lines of text Tolkien gave her. She was one of the Faithful, heir of her father, but she was raped by a relative who also forced her to marry him and took her throne. Rape in itself is traumatic. But then forced to marry the rapist? And also the loss of her kingdom to one who was not of the Faithful. She has no happy days to look forward to. In the end, Ar-Pharazon attacks Valinor, bringing about the end of Numenor and Miriel with it. Someone needs to write her story. She didn't get a happy life, let her have a story to be remembered by.
