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.
