Falathrim

Revision as of 05:07, 12 July 2011 by Gamling (Talk | contribs)

The Falathrim (Sindarin "Coast people") were the shoreland Elves of the Falas who took Círdan as their lord from the beginning, and were also the last to leave Middle-earth forever. Of Telerin descent, these Elves remained in Beleriand when their kin journeyed to Valinor at the persuasion of the Maia Ossë.[1] They were the second of two "subdivisions" of the Teleri to stay behind, the other being the Eglath, who stayed behind to find their lost lord Elwë. Their last home on Middle-earth before finally leaving for the Undying Lands was the Grey Havens, but before that they dwelt mainly in the ancient havens of Eglarest and Brithombar.
