When the Eldar had to leave Atyamar and cross the Great River Anduin, seeing the Misty Mountains across their path to the west, some of them fell away from the Journey. Lenwë, belonging to the host of Olwë, led a part of the Teleri south, down the Vales of Anduin. Lenwë's people afterwards became known as the Nandor.
