She was the daughter of Elrond Half-elven and Celebrían. She married Aragorn in 3019 T.A., choosing to live and die as a mortal rather than leave Middle-earth. Arwen died in the year 121 of the Fourth Age.
In Peter Jackson's film adaptations of The Lord of the Rings, Arwen is played by American actress Liv Tyler. Her role is greatly expanded from that of the books, which was an attempt to increase the role women played in the storyline.
