Itaril was a Silvan Elf of Mirkwood.


Notes

The Form "Itaril" is Quenya, so Itaril might have had Noldorin ancestors, a thing rather uncommon among the Mirkwood-Elves and more likely for Lórien-Elves, among whom many refugees from Eregion had survived.

Behind the Scenes

Itaril was at first proposed to be used as the name of a planned female protagonist of the Hobbit Movies, at that point Saoirse Ronan was rumoured for the cast.Later the Name Itaril was dropped and the Character eventually became Tauriel.

Boromir: "Is it not a strange fate that we should suffer so much fear and doubt for so small a thing? So small a thing!"
