Lord Celeborn

Lord Celeborn

Grey-elven Lord from Doriath, kinsman of King Thingol Greycloak.

He wedded Galadriel sometime during the First Age and during the Second Age traveled with her to Lothlórien where he became the Lord of that mighty realm.

During the Third Age at the time of the War of the Ring, Celeborn led the armies of Lothlórien against the forces of Sauron along the eastern edges of the woods of Lothlórien and Mirkwood. Both Celeborn's and King Thranduil of Mirkwood's forces were successful and later they both renamed Mirkwood to Eryn Lasgalen.

At the end of the Third Age, after Galadriel sailed West over the sea to Aman, Celeborn left Lothlórien to dwell for some time with the sons of Elrond in Imladris. Eventually, he too sailed West to Aman and was reunited with Galadriel.
