Edition of 495
Luthien Tinuviel was the daughter of Thingol and Melian of
the Maia. Thingol was King of Doriath and the Sindar as well as the
High King and Lord of Beleriand and the mightiest Eldar (Elf) after
Feanor himself. Beren son of Barahir saw her dancing in Doriath
after his escape from the traps laid by Morgoth and through the
many layers of defenses laid around Doriath. He was smitten with
her, pursuing her until she returned his love. Her father stipulated
that he would only allow their marriage if Beren brought a silmaril as
a gift. Beren and Luthien together wrested a silmaril from Morgoth although it
eventually cost Luthien her immortality - and the silmaril would cost Thingol his life.
Their story is told in chapter 19 of the The Silmarillion, Of Beren and Luthien.
