Nimloth - The Rings of Power

As depicted in The Rings of Power

Nimloth the Fair was the name of the White Tree of the island of Númenor. It grew in the King's Court in the royal palace in the capital city of Armenelos.


Nimloth was a gift from the Elves of Tol Eressëa to the King of Númenor, a seedling of Celeborn and Galathilion, an image of Telperion that was.

During the reign of Ar-Gimilzôr, the tree was neglected and fell into decline, but when his successor Tar-Palantir came to the throne, it was again tended. The king prophesied that if Nimloth was destroyed, then the line of the House of Elros would end. Later, sometime after SA 3262 when Sauron had the ear of the powerful king Ar-Pharazôn and after Isildur stole one of its fruits, the White Tree was felled and used as kindling in the Temple for Morgoth.[1]

A seedling of Nimloth was saved by Isildur and replanted in Middle-earth. This tree and its descendants would come to be called the White Tree of Gondor.[1]
