Shadows of Twilight: An Elrond Fansite


Part 3: Elrond and Celebrían

Celebrian (fanart)Little is told of the story of Elrond and Celebrían. There is a hint of their story in Unfinished Tales, where it is told the Celeborn fought alongside Elrond in the battle against Sauron in Eregion in II.1695, and afterwards went with him to Rivendell. Galadriel brought Celebrían to Rivendell in search of Celeborn, and they dwelt there for some time. "It was then that Elrond first saw Celebrían, and loved her, though he said nothing of it." They were not married until III.109.

They had three children: two sons, Elladan and Elrohir, and a daughter, Arwen.

In III.2509 Celebrían was abducted by orcs while traveling from Rivendell to Lórien. She was rescued by Elladan and Elrohir, but by the time they found her she had been tortured, and received a poisoned wound. They took her back to Rivendell, where Elrond was able to heal her body. Her spirit, however, could not be healed in Middle-earth, and the next year she passed over the sea.
