4. Author's Notes
Isilwen, Eseleth, and the matron are original characters; the rest belong to Tolkien. Isilwen's name comes from the Sindarin "moon"+"maiden," or -- with a bit of poetic licence -- "maiden of the night." Eseleth's name has no meaning, to my knowledge.
In chapter one Faramir is conjugating the Sindarin verb "lind-", "to sing." He is conjugating it in past tense: "I sang, you sang, he sang, we sang."
The deathdate of Imrahil's wife is not given, but she was alive at least in 2999, when Lothíriel was born. I theorise that, for the purposes of this story, she probably died in childbirth or soon after Lothíriel's birth. The visit to the Silver Fox a week before Boromir arrived was Imrahil's; his wife is of course dead at this point.
