Nerdanel the Wise by shyangell Nerdanel the Wise by shyangell
People: Noldor
Father: Mahtan
Mother: Unknown
Husband: Curufinwë Feanàro (Fëanor)
Children: Nelyafinwë Maitimo Russnadol (Maedhros), Kanafinwë Macalaurë (Maglor), Turkafinwë Tyelkormo (Celegorm), Morifinwë Carnistir (Caranthir), Curufinwë Atarinkë (Curufin), Pityafinwë Ambarussa (Amras) and Telufinwë Ambarussa (Amrod)

The daughter of Mahtan, the great smith, and wife of Prince Fëanaro, was mother to all his seven sons. She wasn't considered specially beautiful by the reckoning of elves, even if she could be considered attractive, wise and patient. Her most distinctive trait was her bright copper red hair, unique even amongst the Noldor. She wed Fëanaro while they were still very young and were both under the apprenticeship of Aulë. She gave him seven sons in quick succession, and all of them became important princes of the Noldorin Exile, and she was the only member of the House of Fëanor remaining on Valinor. In a family were all clustered around Fëanor, Nerdanel had always a secondary role, and is often ignored in the myths. Deserving of respect, because for ages of the world and under the light of the trees she reined in and channelled Fëanaro's fiery temper, his attention, his ire, his impatience, his love, his frustrations, his inspiration, his art, his projects and his ambitions. And he listened to her for most of that time, before the making of the Silmarils when he became too much for anyone to withstand and she left him.

Best picture yet of Nerdanel! :) Yes, the poor lady had a tough row to hoe, being married to a legendary genius, and all those sons....

Genius are never easy (they think they are always right and know better, they are wrong: a genius is always wrong in daily life things it's almost proven)
