According to the literature, Galadriel is one of Middle Earth’s greatest elves and the daughter of a prince of Nolodor. Since she and her husband Celeborn jointly rule Lothlorien, she is frequently referred to as the Lady of the Lothlorien Woods. The couple collaborates to create the power rings while meeting Annatar, the Lord of Gifts. Galadriel was carrying Nenya, one of the three Elven power rings.
