The First Siege of Imladris was a siege during the War of the Elves and Sauron.

Elrond had fled with the survivors of Eregion to the North where he built the haven and fortress Imladris to hold out against Sauron.

In S.A. 1697 Imladris came under siege by the forces of Sauron, and was cut off from Lindon and Khazad-dûm. In 1700 the siege was broken and Sauron was defeated at Battle of the Gwathló.
