When an Elven stronghold was abandoned, those men came to occupy it, and named it Dol Amroth after the drowning of the Elven King Amroth. The first Prince of Dol Amroth was Galador, who, according to legend, was the son of Mithrellas, an Elf maid.[2] This supposed elven strain was noticed in Imrahil many years later by Legolas.[3]
