Elvenhome

Revision as of 13:34, 29 March 2012 by Sage (Talk | contribs)

Elvenhome almost always refers to Eldamar (which is 'Elvenhome' in the Elves' own tongue), the homeland of the Elves in Aman[1], but also was a general term for a land inhabited by Elves.

For example Elvenhome can also refer to Doriath[2] and an Elvenhome is mentioned in the Hobbit-poem The Hoard[3], obviously modelled after Nargothrond.
