Celebrían was an Elf-lady of Lothlórien, the daughter of Celeborn and Galadriel. As the wife of Elrond, she was also known as Lady of Rivendell. She was the mother of Arwen and the twins Elrohir and Elladan. Her daughter would later marry Aragorn Elessar, hero of the War of the Ring, and become the Queen of the Reunited Kingdom.
The time and place of Celebrian's birth, whether by Lake Nenuial or later in Eregion, or even later in Lórien, is unknown. However, Celebrían lived in Eregion, and later moved to Lórien with her mother in S.A. 1350. In S.A. 1701, she went to Rivendell with Galadriel searching for Celeborn, where she first met Lord Elrond. Centuries later they would marry, in T.A. 109. Their first children, the twins Elladan and Elrohir, were born in 130, and their daughter Arwen in 241. She had inherited the Elfstone from her mother, which she later gave to Arwen, her daughter.
In T.A. 2509, on a trip to Lórien to visit her parents, she was waylaid by Orcs of the Misty Mountains in the Redhorn Pass. She was captured and tormented, receiving a poisoned wound. Her sons rescued her and she was physically healed by Elrond, but she never fully recovered in mind or spirit, and no longer wished to stay in Middle-earth. She left for the Grey Havens and passed over the Great Sea the following year.
