Ereinion Gil-galad, the sixth and the last High King of the Noldor in Middle-earth.
A double portrait: while in the published "Silmarillion" he is son of Fingon, J.R.R. Tolkien's final idea was to make him son of Orodreth. This is colored version of my illustration to a polemics on his parentage in the Polish Tolkienists Almanac "Aiglos". Heraldry in the back represents the fathers (or even grandfathers), while the shield is Gil-galad's own emblem.
Gil-galad means "Scion of Kings" - he is literally a scion of kings by the unsolved parentage question and by the given honorific title.
