ᴱ√VṚÐṚ root. “*rule”
An unglossed root in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s appearing as ᴱ√VṚDṚ, but primitive forms ᴱ✶vṝđa and ᴱ✶vṛđní suggest the actual root was ᴱ√VṚÐṚ; it had derivatives like ᴱQ. vard- “rule, govern”, ᴱQ. varni “queen”, and ᴱQ. Varda (QL/102). In the contemporaneous Gnomish Lexicon it had derivatives like G. bardha- “rule, reign” and G. bridh(n)ir “queen” (GL/22, 24). In later writings, Q. Varda was derived from √BARAD “lofty”.
