The Silmarillion aesthetic | The Hidden Kingdom | The Dreams of Doriath

..and this inner land, which was long named Eglador, was after called Doriath, the guarded kingdom, Land of the Girdle.

The Silmarillion aesthetic | King Elu Thingol

A King there was in days of old:
ere men yet walked upon the mould
his power was reared in cavern’s shade,
his hand was over glen and glade […]
Of silver grey his crown was wrought,
the starlight in his banners caught ;
and silver thrilled his trumpets long
beneath the star in challenge strong ;
enchantment did his realm enfold,
where might and glory, wealth untold,
he wielded from his ivory throne
in many pillared halls of stone.

(The Geste of Beren and Lúthien
by J.R.R.Tolkien)
