“..the Easterlings were afraid, and dared not to lay hands upon her or her household… yet she was now poor and without aid, save that she was succoured secretly by a kinswoman of Húrin named Aerin…

..bidding Morwen leave Dor-lómin and return with them to Doriath; but still she would not leave the house in which she had dwelt with Húrin.”

In the Battle of Dagorlad,
Oropher’s company fought valiantly but he was slain with the greater
part of his people when he, with King Amdír and his warriors, called an
early charge upon the enemy, without orders from the Noldorin High-King
Gil-galad. After Sauron was defeated, Thranduil, Oropher’s son and heir,
returned to Eryn Galen with the shattered remnants of the formerly
grand army of his people, back north.

Caranthir The Dark

Now the people of Caranthir dwelt furthest east beyond the upper waters
of Gelion, about Lake Helevorn under Mount Rerir; and they
climbed the heights of Ered Luin and looked eastward in wonder, for wild and
wide it seemed to them were the lands of Middle-earth.

And thus it was that Caranthir’s people came upon the Dwarves,

but

no great love was there between them; for the Dwarves were secret and
quick to resentment, and Caranthir was haughty and scarce concealed his scorn
for the unloveliness of the Naugrim, and his people followed their lord.

Now men awoke and listened to Felagund as he harped and sang, and each thought that he was in some fair dream, until he saw that his fellows were awake also beside him; but they did not speak or stir while Felagund still played, because of the beauty of the music and the wonder of the song.

Prince of Doriath

Celeborn was a Prince of Doriath and a kinsman of Thingol, the King of Doriath. Celeborn was said to be the grandson of Thingol’s brother Elmo. Celeborn’s father was Galadhon and he had a brother named Galathil.

The name Celeborn means “Silver tree”, from the Sindarin words celeb (“silver”) and orn (“tree”). His original name was Teleporno, a Telerin name which means “Silver-high”, from Quenyan tyelpe (“silver”).

The Silmarillion aesthetic | Elu Thingol | King of Doriath, The Hidden King

He was the founder and first King of the northern Elven Kingdom of Doriath and was respected by all the Sindar of the Beleriand, who considered him to be the High King of the Sindar and the Lord of Beleriand.


‘..for fair and noble as he had been, now he appeared as it were a lord
of the Maiar, his hair as grey silver, tallest of all the Children of
Ilúvatar; and a high doom was before him.’
