Who Is Elros On
The Lord Of The
Rings: The Rings
Of Power?
Elros is the son of Eärendil and Elwing, two key heroes who play an essential role in defeating the original Dark Lord Morgoth at the end of the First Age. He also has a twin brother named Elrond, and his ancestry is connected to nearly everybody in J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle-earth.
Family History
When Elros is born, the First Age is at its bleakest point and Morgoth has nearly taken over, and things look pretty bad for the Elves and Edain (noble men of Middle Earth). He and his brother become orphans, and when they are captured in a cave in the woods, their captors take pity on them and raise them.
Rough Start
Elros and Elrond are called the Half-elven because they're part Elf and part Man. This means they get to make a unique choice between living the lives of mortal men, who have the gift of death, or living indefinitely as Elves, who are bound to the world and tied to its fate.
Mortal Life
We learn in Episode 3 of “The Rings of Power” that the island of Numenor was raised from the depths of the seas and turned into a paradise called Andor, which was gifted to the Edain. Elros leads the Edain to the island and arrives on its shores 32 years into the Second Age.
Elros doesn't just lead the Edain to Númenor, but he also becomes their first king. By the time Elros becomes the first King of Númenor, he's already 90 years old, and yet, he goes on to rule the blossoming island realm for 410 more years, dying at the ripe old age of 500 years old.
