Fíriel was the third child and daughter of King Ondoher of Gondor.
Fíriel was wed to prince Arvedui of Arnor in T.A. 1940 when Arvedui's father Araphant made an alliance with Ondoher. The alliance proved fruitless, however. Neither side could send help to the other as both Kingdoms came under attack: Arnor by Angmar and Gondor by the Wainriders.
During the Disaster of the Morannon, Ondoher and his sons Artamir and Faramir were killed, which meant that according to the Law of Númenor, Fíriel should have become the Ruling Queen. Arvedui referred to this ancient law, as well as the fact that he was a direct descendant of Isildur, as arguments to claim the crown of Gondor, but he was refused.
Fíriel remained with her husband in the north, though her fate in the fall of Arthedain was never recorded. She did have a son, Aranarth, who continued the line of Isildur.

It is created in one piece. The base has the manufacturer name, MITHRIL, date and number on the sides of the base.

MZ707 LORD OF THE RINGS 'FIRIEL™ RECEIVES THE EMBASSY OF GONDOR™' RESIN VIGNETTE.
Another very nice pair of figures including a detailed base that is crisply cast in resin. I I am a great fan of the resin castings as my sole aim is to paint the figures and where possible incorporate them into small dioramas/vignettes. I believe the original suggestion for this may have been for a single figure of Firiel, but Chris Tubb went an extra mile and added to the idea. A great addition to the Mithril Gold Fellowship range.
Charming and decent
A wonderful little vignette. Like many before it, it perfectly evokes the spirit of Middle Earth that comes from Tolkien's canon. All compliments
