Of Thingol and Melian
This article is in the early stages of construction and should not be viewed as complete, or even close to being finished.
We are told that during the Great Journey the Teleri lingered in East Beleriand while the Noldor were further to the west. Elwë, the leader of the Teleri while visiting his friend Finwë of the Noldor, was lost in the forest of Nan Elmoth and saw Melian dancing.
He remained immobile for the following ages. His followers could not find him so his leadership was taken by Olwë.
