Why did Annael foster Tuor? Can't Post

Or, more aptly, why did Rian choose to give her tiny son to Annael?

My writing and novels:

My Hobbit Fanfiction

My historical novel print and kindle version

My historical novels ebook version compatible with all ereaders

You can also find my novel at most major book retailers online (and for those outside the US who prefer a print book, you can find the print version at Book Depository). Search "Amazing Grace Amanda Longpre'" to find it.

Happy reading everyone!

There's an explanation in HoMe [In reply to] Can't Post

It is not mentioned explicitly in TS, but one can deduce that Rian chose not to live any further after Huor’s death and that she died soon after giving birth. This appears from §251 in “The grey Annals” in “History of Middle-Earth 11 - The War of the Jewels”:

Rian wife of Huor hearing no tidings of her lord went forth into the wild, and there gave birth to Tuor her son; and he was taken to foster by Annael of the Grey-elves of Mithrim. But Rian went to Haudh-in-nDengin and laid her there and died. And in Brethil Glorwendil, Hador's daughter, died of grief. But Morwen wife of Hurin abode in Hithlum, for she was with child.
