Lindon was an Elvish realm ruled by [[Gil-galad]], last [[High King of the Noldor]] in Middle-earth. It lay in what remained of Beleriand, between the mountains of [[Ered Luin]] and the [[Belegaer|Great Sea]]. From its [[Grey Havens]] Elven ships sailed daily to [[Aman|the West]]. Imladris, or [[Rivendell]], was founded by [[Elrond]] about halfway through the Age.

In the early part of the Second Age many [[Noldorin]] Elves journeyed East of the Ered Luin and established the realm of [[Eregion]] near the [[Misty Mountains]]. These Elves, led by [[Celebrimbor]] son of [[Curufin]], became close friends with the [[Dwarves]] of [[Moria|Khazad-dûm]]. Together they made great endeavours in smithcraft, until the skill of the Elves reached a height never to be matched again. This attracted the attention of [[Sauron]], who tricked the Elves into making the [[Rings of Power]] by his aid. When the Elves perceived that he desired to rule them with [[the One Ring]], they resisted, and Sauron waged war against them. In this war, Eregion was destroyed and Celebrimbor killed.
