- "Two lords they had, for their numbers were very great: Elwë Singollo, which signifies Greymantle, and Olwë his brother. The hair of Olwë was long and white, and his eyes were blue; but the hair of Elwë was grey as silver, and his eyes were as stars; he was the tallest of all the Elven-folk."
- ― J.R.R. Tolkien, Morgoth's Ring, "The Later Quenta Silmarillion": "Of the Coming of the Elves", p. 163
Olwë became Lord of the island of Tol Eressëa, where the Teleri built a great number of cities, and grew in number. When they finally came to Eldamar some centuries later, Olwë became king of Alqualondë. His daughter Eärwen married Finarfin son of Finwë and later King of the Noldor in Valinor. Besides Eärwen, Olwë had several sons. Celeborn may have been his son or grandson.
