What about Galadriel? [In reply to] Can't Post

She is a Noldor, and is quite powerful. (At the time of LotR, she was one of the most powerful elves in middle earth.) I can't remember exactly where I read it, but didn't she help in defeating/defeated Dol Guldur?

Ah, in that case, [In reply to] Can't Post

I'll have vote for Arwen, even though she might not seem to be as "tough" as Eowyn and Tauriel, she is (probably) the oldest, and therefore the most experienced.

That's not physical strength. Using magic that has been bestowed upon you is like having someone else do the work.

Galadriel used the power inherent within her, not power bestowed upon her. Consider that this was after the destruction of the One Ring so that her Elven Ring would no longer function.

Bestowed [In reply to] Can't Post

Yes, bestowed by the Creation, since it is established that sentient gods created Middle-earth and all the creatures and things aboard it. Plus, to no small effect, the ring she was given, albeit diminished by the destruction of the One Ring.

Bestowed. I would not use the word had Middle-earth developed through evolution.

Isn't all strength and potential--physical and otherwise--bestowed by the Creator?

That would follow. By their process of Creation in the fiction - not ours. Different rules. It would follow that even the Ainur were bestowed with a nature, given by Eru-of-several-names. What - one name isn't enough for a god? That's why I have such a dim view of the capriciousness and recklessness of the gods. The Creator must be omnipotent and thus Eru with intent allowed for Melkor. The Valar shunned their own responsibilities toward the destruction that they initiated upon Middle-earth. Eru thus designed and intended all misery to follow. It was fated, given, bestowed by the Creation of the nature of the song and not by quantum mechanics and evolution where we are of our own nature of chance and choice.

Not fair [In reply to] Can't Post

Of the three, as depicted - hard for me to say as I need to really see Tauriel in a whole movie or two to decide! But I would bet it is she, in a close one over Eowyn. She enjoys advantages of age and being permitted to pursue her interest in fighting, and the physical advantage of being an Elf, that Eowyn lacked.

But if we are talking overall, female characters, Galadriel should be on the list, and would have my vote.

I voted a Draw, but only because I haven't seen Tauriel in action. [In reply to] Can't Post

Otherwise I'd say Eowyn. Arwen, yes she used a sword that ONE time and fended off the Nazgul, but other than that, she stayed home and day-dreamed of Aragorn all day. Eowyn so far is the strongest.

Galadriel, even when stripped out of all her 'magical' powers, would probably have swept floors with the rest of the ladies, considering she is described to have been "strong of body, mind, and will, a match for both the loremasters and the athletes of the Eldar in the days of their youth". She also had enough physical strength and endurance to cross the Helcaraxë on foot, not only surviving a trek where many others perished but being strong enough to actually act as one of the leaders while doing so.

If she was physically a match for even the strongest of the Eldar, then neither Arwen, Eowyn or Tauriel (who I hesitate to even consider for any comparison) would have stood a chance against her.
