MÝriel was King FinwŰ's first wife, and thus the first Queen of the Noldor. She was famed for her skills on weaving and embroidery, and the pieces that came from the craft of her hands were very famed. Her tale is tragic, for her happy marriage was shattered with terrible consequences. She bore FinwŰ one son, which she named fire-spirit, and immediately she felt weary, like the child had sapped all the strength for her. She put all the energy she should've put in several children in only one son, and thus told FinwŰ she would never give him another child. Soon after she travelled to Irmo's domain in hope of a cure for her weakness, but she faded away in the end. FinwŰ desirous to have more children and unwilling to wait for her rehousing, asked to the Valar to be wed again, and it was granted to him, on the condition that she accept reamining in the Halls of Mandos forever. MÝriel, that loved him, gave her consent.
Caranthir offered to Men his lands to live in protected, but Haleth refused, for now she was chosen a Chieftain, being of great heart and no less in valour than her kinsmen. Next year she led her people to Estolad; and after a time again urged them to move further westward.
