What are the types of elves found in 'The Lord of the Rings'?
To fully understand the divisions of the elves, read The Silmarillion. In the Lord of the Rings, the following types of elves are mentioned. The Noldor Known in LotR as the "High Elves," these elves are from the West in Valinor, and have seen the Light, and are the mightiest and most powerful of the elves remaining in Middle-earth. By the Third Age, their numbers were greatly diminished, and most, if not all, had sailed into the West. There is a long and tragic history behind the Noldor, but, again, it is necessary to read The Silmarillion to learn of this. Galadriel is of the Noldor, as was Gil-galad. Elrond also had more than a little Noldorin blood. The Sindar These are the noble and royal wood-elves. Thranduil, the Elvenking in Mirkwood is of the Sindar, as was Amroth, late king of Lorien, and Celeborn, husband of Galadriel. The Silvans The wood elves of Lothlorien and Mirkwood. The "common" elves, so to speak. Haldir and his brothers are Silvans, as are the elves in The Hobbit.

Answer . It is unknown when Crickhollow was founded; there is no mention of it getting destroyed.
On a basic plot level, the Lord of the Rings is about a powerful Lord who managed to turn much of what was truly weak human will into an incredible ability to fight and destroy everything positive in his world. The plot of the story is how brave individuals sought to turn the tide and bring about th…at Lord's doom. Tolkein called his books "applicable" as opposed to "allegorical" meaning that there is no set thematic meaning to the book and its story can be applied in parts or in whole to worldwide occurrences that are different to different people. There are strong themes about the value of diversity, teamwork, the environment, humility, valiance, and hopefulness. At the same time the book gives a harsh critique of industrialism, homogeneity, hegemony, discrimination, and belligerence. The lord of the rings is about a hobbit called Frodo who was givena ring that held so much power that many evil people wanted it.Frodo had to destroy the ring in the one place that it could bedestroyed, Mount Doom in Mordor. The book is all about Frodo'sadventure to reach Mordor and the new friends and enemies he meetson the way. The title of the novel "Lord of the Rings" refers to the story's main antagonist, the Dark Lord Sauron, who had in an earlier age created the One Ring to rule the other Rings of Power as the ultimate weapon in his campaign to conquer and rule all of Middle-earth. From quiet beginnings in the Shire, a Hobbit land not unlike the English countryside, the story ranges across north-west Middle-earth, following the course of the War of the Ring through the eyes of its characters, notably the Hobbits Frodo Baggins, Samwise "Sam" Gamgee, Meriadoc "Merry" Brandybuck and Peregrin "Pippin" Took, but also the Hobbits' chief allies and travelling companions: Aragorn, a Human Ranger, Boromir, a Human nobleman, Gimli, a Dwarf warrior, Legolas, an Elven prince, and Gandalf, a Wizard.

A series of six fantasy books (published in three volumes) writtenby JRR Tolkien. It was made into three movies in the 2000's. The Lord of the Rings is an epic fantasy novel written by J.R.R.(John Ronald Reuel) Tolkien. It follows the story of Middle-earth,a fictional continent inhabited by Elves, …Dwarves, Hobbits andHuman beings.

The tale is divided into six books, though it is often published asa trilogy comprised of the 'The Fellowship of the Ring', 'The TwoTowers' and 'The Return of the King'. Lord of the Rings was published in 1954-5 in these installments,due to paper shortages after the second world war. The book hadtaken Tolkien most of his life to write, and encompasses much ofhis love of ancient literature and language, especially Anglo-Saxonand Viking legends. Tolkien is reputed to have felt that Englandlacked Legends of the caliber he would have liked, and so felt thisvoid needed to be filled. Lord of the Rings was made into a three-part film series by NewLine Cinema and director Peter Jackson and released annually fromDecembers 2001-2003. The final film, Return of the King, received arecord amount of awards including eleven Oscars. The Lord of the Rings is officially the Allen & Unwin /HarperCollins most-read book, next to the Bible. a trilogy of books which were turned into a movie. (some people think it is a parodox of the bible) writtin by j.r. Tolkien, it also has sold a lot of copies world wide and is quite popular among adults and children. ( Full Answer )
Elrond's House, or Rivendell was one location.. The other was LothlÃ³rien where Galadriel and Celeborn lived.. In the Elven Halls of Mirkwood there were elves.. There were also some elves at the Grey Havens.. After the War of the Ring Legolas brought some elves from Mirkwood and they settled i…n the fair land of Ithilien.. There were folk of Eriador and Lindon, such as Gildor and his crew.. Elves resided at the Tower Hills to guard the palantir. ( Full Answer )
The only way elves can die is if someone kills them, they do not age or get sick. Also if an elf dies he instantly comes to life again, fully restored in the Halls of Mandos in Valinor, the Undying Lands in the True West. All elves were called and feel an urge to travel to Valinor.
The Elves never die of old age and are resistant to disease and such, though they can be slain in battle or die by similar means; however, even when they die they only go to the Halls of Mandos in Aman, and eventually can be "reincarnated" into life.
Elves' power is to heal, restore, and protect, not to destroy. Most of the elves power we see is that of a passive nature, such as Galadriel protecting her forest or Elrond healing Frodo. Another example of the healing nature of elves is Gandalf's solution in which it brings life back to the hobbits…. There is also great power in their singing, as the sound of it frightened the Nazgul away from the hobbits. There are other things, like the rope and lembas which aren't really magical, but certainly incredible. But adding to the protective nature of the elves' magic is the elven cloaks of Lothlorien Galadriel clad the Fellowship in. The cloaks blend the wearer into the surroundings so undetectable. Then there is the Mirror of Galadriel, a sometimes terrible thing. The Mirror of Galadriel shows the viewer things of the past, present, and possible future. This is a list of the obvious elvish magic devices: The Three Elven Rings, Narya, Nenya, Vilya Gandalf's miruvor drink The power of song Elven cloaks The Mirror of Galadriel Aragorn's scabbard, which will never let the blade inside it go dull Legolas' bowstring, which will never break The Phial of Galadriel/The Light of Earendil Indeed, the ropes and the lembas are also magical, elves just weave magic into their everyday lives and everything they do.

Three Rings for Elven-kings under the sky, Seven for the Dwark-Lords in their halls of stone, Nine for mortal men doomed to die, One for the Dark Lord on his throne, In the Land of Mordor where Shadows lie. One ring to rule them, one ring to find them, One ring to bring them all and in the darkness …bind them In the Land of Mordor where Shadows lie. And the part about the one ring ruling, finding, and binding... that's the same ring as the one for the Dark Lord on his throne. ( Full Answer )
Lots of people. Peter Jackson directed it, Viggo Mortensen playedAragorn, Orlando Bloom played Legolas, Ian McKellen played Gandalf,Sean Bean played Boromir, Miranda Otto played Eowyn, JohnRhys-Davies played Gimli, Liv Tyler played Arwen, Hugo Weavingplayed Elrond, and many more.
Lembas bread and other vegetarian stuff. Elves ate meat as well, while lembas bread was for eating on the trail. During feasts they had the most wonderful foods, check out Sam's reaction when they eat in Woodhall near the Shire (in 'The Fellowship of the Ring').
Unlike modern fantasy authors, Tolkien did not describe this sort of thing. The elves "prized beautiful hair," but I believe that only refers to one kind. I think the reigning belief in the Tolkien fan community seems to be that the males, anyway, did not have hair on their chests.
Perhaps because Dwarves killed Thingol (an ancient Elven Lord) and they think that led to the destruction of Doriath.
Don't know their names, just know they were great miners and craftsmen of the mountain halls. . Dwarves kept their real names secret from the other races. With the other races they always used names that were either titles or aliases. Only these substitute names (e.g. Gimli, Oin, Gloin, Balin, Duri…n, Thorin Oakenshield) appear in the books.

Yes. That is, an elf went to Helm's deep. Legolas. He was the only one. No contigent of archers from Galadriel I am afraid
They go to the Undying Lands or the Grey Havens. It is the countrythat elves first came from. It is across the sea and is said thatonly elves could find the way there. It is a parallel to ourHeaven. Actually the Elves did not originate in the Undying Lands in thefar west, they came into being in th…e far east of Middle Earth(much farther east than where Mordor was later made by Sauron, in aplace not recorded on any map) in the time before the Sun and theMoon. They were then summoned by the Valar to travel west all theway across Middle Earth and sail across the sea to the UndyingLands, for their safety as there were many evil creatures in MiddleEarth at that time. Some refused to leave their homes, some stoppedalong the way, only a few actually sailed and lived in the UndyingLands. After the Silmarils were stolen by Morgoth, Feanor and manyof his relatives among the Noldorin Elves sailed back to MiddleEarth in a futile attempt to recover them. At the end of the ThirdAge (as described in LotR) the Elves again began leaving MiddleEarth to sail for the Undying Lands as they had been originallysummoned to do, including many that had previously refused to go on(however as nothing is known of the Elves that refused to leavetheir original homes in the far east of Middle Earth, it isuncertain if any of them went west).

Three. It's in this poem mentioned in the first book: Three rings for the Elven Kings under the sky, Seven for the dwarf lords in their halls of stone. Nine for mortal men doomed to die, One for the dark lord on his dark throne.
Eventually, all Elves sailed to Valinor, a place which is described like paradise. To do this they had to get a ship from the Grey Havens, and once they are there they cannot come back. This is where Frodo sailed to at the end of RotK. Legolas was one of the last elves to sail. Most of the Elves had… left by the end of the 3rd age/the beginning of the 4th. ( Full Answer )

What are the differences between the Lothlorien elves and the Rivendell elves in The Lord of the Rings The Fellowship of the Ring?
they are of the same races. Lothlorien its rulers Galadriel and her husband Celeborn. while Rivendel is being rulled by Lord Elrond, father of Arwen
According to the "Laws and Customs of the Eldar" found in Morgoth's Ring of The Histories of Middle-earth, the union of two elves begins with a formal betrothal, lasting for one year, during which time a public feast is held and the couple exchange silver rings. After at least one year, if both pa…rties are still agreed to marry, another feast is held, during which the marriage "ceremony" is held. At some point during the feast, the bride and groom get up and hold hands for all the guests to see. Then they are blessed by the mother of the bride and the father of the groom. The bride and groom then seal their marriage with gold rings and give each other Lore Names, which are a kind of formal elven nickname if you will. After all this, the physical union is consummated. If in times of war, for instance, a formal ceremony could not be conducted, the couple would skip the feasting, etc. and go straight to blessings, lore names, exchange of rings, and sex.

Hugo Weaving played Elrond, and Cate Blanchett played Galadriel. Both were Elf Lords, two of the three who were given rings by Sauran. Also, Orlando Bloom (of Pirates of the Caribbean) played Legolas, an elven member of The Fellowship.
Hugo Weaving plays Elrond, the father of Arwen and lord of Rivendell in The Lord of the Rings . The leader of the Lothlorien elves that march to Helm's Deep in The Two Towers film is Haldir, played by Craig Parker.
I am not one hundred percent sure but I believe the last, The Return of the King, has the most.
In The Lord of the Rings why did only the elves go to Valinor and not hobbits or others if it was the time of man?
I suppose it has something to do with the fact that elves are immortal and hobbits are things much like men. Valinor (The Undying Lands) was a place sacred to the elves, not the hobbits.
The Elves sought peace, which is why a majority of them werefleeing to The Grey Havens. They wanted nothing to do with Sauronor The War of the Ring, though the three people holding the threeElven Rings, Nenya, Vilya and Narya, (held by Galadriel, Elrond andCirdan the Shipwright, who rules the Havens…, respectfully) had tosee to it that these three Rings would lose their power when theOne Ring was destroyed. Which they did, or nearly so, though Cirdanstill gave his ring to Gandalf. That is why, along with Frodo andBilbo, the three of them left to the Grey Havens. Cirdan stayedbehind, however, to take one last ship, which carried The LastRingbearer, as well as a pair of highly unique friends. ( Full Answer )
Who are the three elves with the rings at the beginning of The Lord of the Rings The Fellowship of the Ring?
The three elves are Galadriel, Gil-Galad, and Cirdan. Cirdan later entrusted his ring to Gandalf.
Who performed 'The Passing of the Elves' on 'The Lord of the Rings The Fellowship of the Ring' soundtrack?
Probably Howard Shore's orchestra, although I think you mean The Two Towers ? I'm pretty that isn't from The Fellowship.
The Nine rings that were given to Men were still in the possession of the Nazgul when Sauron was destroyed. Of the Seven rings that were given to Dwarves, four were consumed by dragons, and three were recovered by Sauron. The Three rings of the Elven kings belonged to Gandalf, Elrond, and Galadriel,… and were in their possession at the time of Sauron's demise. The One Ring of course fell into the crack of doom with Smeagol and was destroyed. It was theorized by Galadriel that when Sauron is destroyed the power of the rings would fail too. ( Full Answer )
Why in Lord of the Rings do the Hobbits and Elves have last names and the Men and Dwarves are referred to by their fathers names ie Frodo Baggins or Gimli son of Gloin?
I think it is because hobbits don't have kings and are very humble, and elves are immortal, so most of them don't die. But men and dwarves want a lot of glory, for example, Gimli son of Gloin - Gimli is obviously proud of his father and wants people to know that he is his son ( I think).
Gollim is a hobbit, like Bilbo or Frodo, but changed to near unrecognizeability due to the ring.
Gandalf says that the ring pasted into legend and then myth. Most people forgot about it and it became a legend to middle earth in the same way that the greek myths are legends to us
Arwen cried when she saw the future where her husband Aragorn hasdied ; a very poignant scene in the film . The Elves do haveemotions but are rather laconic in their emotions . The Elves sang songs of lament in their own tongue that could beheard throughout Lorien when they thought that Gandalf had …died. ( Full Answer )
In The Lord of the Rings The Two Towers how do the elves from Rivendell make it to Helm's Deep before the Isengard army?
That is only in the movie, in the books there are no elves at Helm's Deep. It was added in by Peter Jackson, and really doesn't make any sense.
A full quiver is both a cinematic and literary device that is part of the narrative .
it is a phial with the light of eÃ¤rendil in it. the most beloved star of the elves. "may it be a light to you in dark places, when all other lights go out..." it helps him survive shelob. (the giant spider)
Finnish is the language spoken in Finland and it is also the language that the Elven language in Tolkien is based on.
Arwen Undomiel is one of the Half-Elven being a product of both an Elven and human parent . Elrond was the son of Earendil (Edain) and Elwing (Sindar). Earendil was the son of Tuor (Edain) and Idril (Noldor). So Arwen's elven heritage was Noldorin and Sindarin.
Glorfindel is an Elven Lord from a house of princes, however, he is not the most powerful elf, and not the lord of all Elves. The highest ranking elves mentioned in the Lord of the Rings are probably Elrond, Galadriel, and Celeborn.
one air as in lord of the rings conquest held by elrond, sorry i do not know the other two but i would think that they are water, and something else.
Generally in the six foot range. Shakespeare was off by about a good six feet.
Although the letters on the One Ring are Elvish, the language itself is the dark tongue of Mordor. Well, there are several languages which appear written down in theLotR. But I'll just take a guess that you want the name of thescript on the One Ring: it's Tengwar.
They run a main and a genoa, rarely a spinnaker, I'd guess. And their sails are black.
I believe they are worth 10 points because there just elves with heavy armour and a elf sword
Frodo was stabbed in the shoulder by the witch king, even after thewitch kings death, frodos wound was still troubling him, he wasunable to rest in middle earth. The One Ring also left its own mark on Frodo.
I myself over the years have learned it. All you need to do is look up elvish writing and then find the phrase you want then write it. I have actually learned the whole language (speaking and writing) and say that it is NOT easy.
Who or what would win in a battle or war Humans or hobbits or elves and or orcs in Lord of the Rings?
If they all had the same numbers? I would say elves, because they don't get tired, and they fast at running and climbing and they have amazing skills with blades and bow and arrows :)
The Lord of the Rings is a great movie and a great book. (If youhaven't, read the book, READ IT!) It has many characters. The main9 are Frodo, Sam, Pippin, Merry, Gimli, Legolas, Aragorn, Gandalf,and Boromir. Sauron is the bad guy. There are many races, ofcourse. Here are the evil races: orcs, troll…s, nazgul, (otherwiseknown as black riders, and the nine.), and more. Then the goodraces are hobbits, men, elves, and dwarves. :) i hope this answeredyour question! ( Full Answer )
Galadriel, Elrond and Gandalf carried/wore the three elven rings.There really was no discussion on what the powers of the rings was.Gandalf had the fire ring, Narya, Galadriel wore Nenya the ring ofwater and Elrond wore Vilya, the ring of air.

That is probably different in the two stories, as they are storiesabout different worlds and different creatures. In Lord of the Rings the Elves rarely live in the mountains, theytend to prefer valleys and forests close to rivers.
