Lords and Ladies of The Valar
The Lords and Ladies of the Valar are angelic beings subordinate to Eru Ilúvatar; they are the Ainur who chose to go into the World and complete its material development after its form was determined by the Music of the Ainur (Ainulindalë).
The term Valar most frequently refers to the fourteen most powerful of the Ainur, the “Lords and Ladies of the Valar”. The Aratar or High Ones of Arda are the eight greatest of the Valar: Manwë, Varda, Ulmo, Yavanna, Aulë, Mandos, Nienna, and Oromë. Lórien and Mandos are brothers and are referred to collectively as the Fëanturi, “Masters of Spirits”.
