Queen Ariel Alessarë

(803/2-884/3) Queen Ariel Alessarë was the first Grey-Elf queen of Wyntharë, a member of the House of Alessarë, and one of three elven leaders involved in the Sundering. Ariel was killed in the Great Rift of 884/3

Ariel was the daughter of Talarion Brightstar. After his death during the War of Wrath, Ariel founded the Grey-Elf realm of Wyntharë at the end of the Second Age. Queen Ariel ruled Wyntharë for over 700 years, until she was killed in the Great Rift of 884/3; a terrible earthquake that completely devastated the realm of the Grey-Elves.

Upon Ariel's death, the shattered realm of Wyntharë passed to her youngest son; Ajathar. This was because her eldest son; Arkelion had been slain in the year 252/3, at the Battle of Orgorod.
