Beren! You are Beren, who has gained the Silmarill and lost his Hand! The dream is Lúthien.

Are you Nienor Niníel?

She jumped into the river and killed herself, when a dragon (don't remember the name) revealed to her that her husband, and father of the child she carried, was actually her long lost older brother Túrin Túrambar.

First I'll just apologize for not answering sooner, but my RL suddenly became very busy and I didn't have time to log on to HOL, so sorry.. sad.gif

Ok, here's the important part, the riddle:

I was the fairest wonder of my hidden home
I lost my mother before I came to these lands
I was loved by my cousin, but loved the son of my father's friend
I had a name of silver and a hair of gold
I sailed with my husband and my son is the most beloved star in the sky

Who am I?

Guess away...

Are you Idril, mother of Eärendil?

Idril Celebrindal's second name means "silverfoot" and her mother died in the crossing of the Helcaraxe before coming to Middle-earth. Her cousin, Maeglin, was in love with her but because she sensed deception in his manner, she refused his advances. She then fell in love with Tuor, the messenger of Ulmo, and bore Eärendil - the morning and evening star. The couple sailed into the West in the First Age in the ship Eärrámë.

Eldest born in a hidden ravine,
Child of cave and a silver queen.
I need not a mirror to see my face;
There is another who can fill that place.
Although I survived to see the king on his throne,
What choice I made after will forever be unknown.

Who am I?

You must be Tuor.

My coming was prophesied.
Ulmo chose him to carry out his plans about trying to save Gondolin.

My tidings were about an ending.
He told Turgon it was time to leave Gondolin before it fell.

I killed my wifes cousin.
He killed Maeglin, who was the cousin of Tuor's wife Idril.

You are Tuor

My coming was prophesied.
It had been said that he would come and armour had been laft for him

My tidings were about an ending.
He came to warn the people of Gondolin

I killed my wifes cousin.
He killed Maeglin, who had, willing or not, betrayed the city

I don't think it was too easy, rather (for me that is) I've just read Silmarillion too much *grin*
