Husband: Tuor son of Huor
Idril (Itarillë in High Speech) is the only of Finwë's great-grandchildren we know for certain that was born in Valinor. Her father was Fingolfin's second son, Turgon (Turakano) and her mother was Elenwë, of mixed noldorin and vanyarin heritage. Because of this combination of vanyarin ancestors she inherited a hair that was golden, and a radiant beauty that was legendary. At a very young age she followed his parent into exile, still a child, and her mother perished in the Helcaraxë. Turgon, would later found a hidden city in Beleriand, the city of Gondolin, which she would never leave again until the very end. Despite the insitent courtship of her cousin Maeglin, she would later accept the suit of a man, Tuor, who was tall and fair as an elf, and the envoy of Ulmo. She had one son, Eärendil, before the jealousy of Maeglin had him betray the city to Morgoth and the city was destroyed and the people had to flee. Irdil led the people out by a passage through the mountains on the long journey to the Mouths of the Sirion, while the warriors fought their battle with the forces of the Dark One.
