Queen Ariel Alessarë

(803/2-884/3) Queen Ariel Alessarë was the first Grey-Elf queen of Wyntharë, and one of three leaders of the Sundering.

Ariel was the daughter of Talarion Brightstar and a member of the House of Alessarë/

After her father's death during the War of Wrath, Ariel founded the Grey-Elf realm called "Wyntharë" at the end of the Second Age.

Her eldest son, Arkelion was slain in the year 252/3, at the Battle of Orgorod.

Queen Ariel ruled Wyntharë for over 700 years, until her death during the Great Rift of 884/3; a terrible earthquake which completely devastated the realm of the Grey-Elves, left the cities Alarë and Wyn Falas in ruins, and completely consumed the city of Selunë.

Upon Ariel's death, the shattered realm of Wyntharë passed to her youngest son, Ajathar.
