Lord of the Rings - Arwen - Liv Tyler - Framed print, inner frame measurement of 12"H x 16"W.

Arwen Undómiel (Liv Tyler) is one of the half-elven who lived during the Third Age.

Arwen was the youngest child of Elrond and Celebrían. Her elder brothers were the twins Elladan and Elrohir. Her name Ar-wen means 'noble maiden'. She bore the sobriquet "Evenstar", as the most beautiful of the last generation of High Elves in Middle-earth.

Through her father, Elrond, Arwen was the granddaughter of Eärendil the Mariner, great-granddaughter of Tuor of Gondolin, and thus direct descendant of the ancient House of Hador. Through her great-grandmother, Idril, Arwen was also a descendant of King Turgon of the Noldor. Through her mother, she was the granddaughter of Lady Galadriel and the great-granddaughter of Finarfin. Through both of her parents Arwen was a direct descendant of the ancient Elven House of Finwë. Furthermore,  Arwen was one of only three of the Eldar to wed a Man and was descended from the other two, Idril and Lúthien.

Aragorn met Arwen for the first time in Rivendell, where he lived under Elrond's protection. Arwen, then over 2700 years old, had recently returned to her father's home after living for a while with her grandmother Lady Galadriel in Lórien. Aragorn fell in love with Arwen at first sight. Some thirty years later, the two were reunited in Lórien. Arwen reciprocated Aragorn's love, and on the mound of Cerin Amroth they committed themselves to marry each other.

Arwen was a very distant relative of her husband Aragorn. Aragorn's ancestor, Elros Tar-Minyatur, the first King of Númenor, was her father Elrond's brother, who chose to live as a Man rather than as one of the Eldar. Arwen eventually became Queen of the Reunited Kingdom of Arnor and Gondor when she married Aragorn, who was of the line of the Kings of Arnor.

Shortly before Aragorn took the Paths of the Dead, he was joined by a group of Dúnedain from the North, accompanied by Arwen's brothers, who brought him as a gift from Arwen: a banner of black cloth. The banner was unfurled at the Battle of the Pelennor Fields to reveal the emblem of Elendil figured in mithril, gems, and gold; this became the first triumphant public announcement of the King's return.

After the War of the Ring, Aragorn became king of Arnor and Gondor. Arwen arrived at Minas Tirith, and they were married. She gave Frodo a necklace with a white stone, which would aid him when the darkness of his injuries troubled him.

In Fourth Age 121, one year after Aragorn's death, Arwen gave up her life, at the age of 2,901, at Cerin Amroth.
