365 Days of Middle-earth ~ Day 264: Rúmil of Tirion

Rúmil was one of the Noldor and the first great Elven-poet; he is credited with the composition of the Ainulindalë. He also devised the earliest known system of writing, known as the Tengwar, though his system has become more closely associated with Fëanor, who re-ordered and re-arranged the system.

There is also a Silvan Elf by the name of Rúmil; he is the brother of Haldir and a border guard of Lórien.
