Lord Ullin's daughter chose love over duty and obedience. Her choice though right at the beginning takes a very tragic turn by the end of the poem.  Choosing to elope with the Chieftan was right as both she and her lover emphasized on the extent of her father’s rage. If they had not eloped the lady would be forced to marry a suitor her father chose for her and thus the lovers would be doomed to sadness forever. However, in their urgency, the couple made the foolish mistake of braving the storm; a move which ended their love forever. This not only separated the lovers but also left her father Lord Ullin an unbearable loss and grief for life.
