‘The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power’: Who is Galadriel? Morfydd Clark’s character is one of the mightiest elves
Ahead of the show’s premiere in September 2022, we take a thorough glance at how Galadriel is one of strongest elves in middle-earth
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: ‘The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power’ is one of the most awaited fantasy adventure war prequel sagas of the year. The series is going to unveil its curtains for global viewers and fans worldwide on September 1, 2022, on Amazon Prime Video. The series is inspired and based on late cult author JRR Tolkien’s 'The Lord of the Rings and its appendices'. The multi-starrer period fantasy war saga has been conceptualized and re-adapted for the screens by showrunners JD Payne and Patrick Mckay for Prime Video. The series is set in the second age of middle-earth, almost thousands of years before Tolkien's ‘The Hobbit’ and ‘The Lord of the Rings'.
Talking about the characters in the series, undoubtedly, Galadriel (Morfydd Clark) is one of the most pivotal and central ones in this poignant and riveting saga of Tolkien’s middle-earth lore. Galadriel is seen burning with rage and has a plan of vendetta to avenge her brother’s death from the enemy forces. This is going to be seen in the series.
Who is Galadriel?
Galadriel is also known as ‘Lady of Lothlorien’. She has also been considered by late author Tolkien as one of the greatest elves in middle-earth. She ruled in Lothlorien with her husband Celeborn. She used to be admired for her beauty, intelligence, and power. According to Tolkien’s lore set within the middle-earth universe, Galadriel also has an air of mystery. She is seemingly all-knowing and all-seeing. She assists Gil-galad (Benjamin Walker), Elrond (Robert Aramayo), and Celebrimbor (Charles Edwards) on their route to defeating Sauron (Anson Boon), but she refrains from direct action. In her own words, Galadriel is capable of great beauty and great terror. And although in The Lord of the Rings movies, we see her war with herself, she ultimately passes the test before her and does not take the Ring of Power.
Galadriel was the keeper of Elven ring ‘Nenya’. She had been entrusted with the responsibility of keeping the ring concealed and safeguarding it away from menacing villain Sauron’s corrupt eyes. She was given the ring by Celebrimbor in Lothlorien. Whilst Galadriel kept Nenya, Cirdan gave Narya to Gandalf and Gil-galad gave Vilya to Elrond. This resulted in Galadriel, Gandalf, and Elrond becoming the Keepers of the Three Rings, who had been given instructions to keep these rings safe and away from Sauron until they all lost their powers with the destruction of the one ring which had been forged by Sauron to control all the other rings.
