Discussing: Nerdanel: only child?

Nerdanel: only child?

Hello, all! Wondering if Nerdanel was an only child. I know that Mahtan was her father, and as far as I know, her mother is unnamed, but I've never heard of her having siblings. Just curious if anyone has any tidbits of info on that... ~Meril



Re: Nerdanel: only child?

I keep Genealogies of Tolkien's characters, so I keep an eye out for such detail... Unfortunately, Tolkien never mentioned any other family member but Mahtan and Nerdanel. - Barbara

No, not really unfortunate! Leaves me free to add a sibling or two, and (attempt to canonically) create a geneology. Thanks! ~Meril
