In J. R. R. Tolkien's fictional world of Middle-earth, Melian was a Maia of the race of the Valar. She fell in love with the Elven-king Thingol and with him ruled the kingdom of Doriath. After Thingol's death, she left Middle-earth for Valinor where she mourned the loss of her husband and her daughter, Lúthien.
