Elves of Middle-earth

 / Elf of Middle-earth / Middle-earth Elves / Middleearth Elf
   The Úmanyar and the Noldor who returned from Aman.
   The Elves that dwelt in Middle-earth were, for the most part, those who did not start the Great Journey (the Avari), or those that fell away from it (the Silvan Elves, the Nandor and the Sindar). Of those Elves who left Middle-earth for Aman, many of the Noldor later returned, and there were still some few of this noble people to be found at the time of the War of the Ring.
