Arwen was the daughter of Elrond and his wife Celebrían. She was born in the year 251 of the Third Age and lived in both Rivendell and Lothlórien. After she fell in love with Aragorn, she had to wait until after the War of the Ring before she was permitted to wed him. She died upon Cerin Amroth in the year 121 of the Fourth Age, as after she married Aragorn she became mortal and thus subject to dying of old age. She too died of her own free will. It was said that in Arwen's beauty, she had the looks of Lúthien Tinúviel, the first of the Elves to form a union with a Man.
