Elves of the Havens

 / Elf of the Havens
   The followers of Círdan during the First Age.
   A Sindarin people occupying the land of the Falas in western Beleriand, on the shores of Belegaer. Círdan the Shipwright was their lord, and their great cities were the Havens of Brithombar and Eglarest.
   The Elves of the Havens enjoyed peaceful relations with all the Elves of Beleriand, and were particularly closely allied with the people of Nargothrond. As one of the most remote peoples from Morgoth's forces in Angband, the other Elvish lords would often send their children to the Elves of the Havens for safekeeping.
   After the Nirnaeth Arnoediad, Brithombar and Eglarest were besieged and taken by Morgoth's armies, and most of the Elves were slain or imprisoned. Some few, including Círdan and the young Ereinion Gil-galad, who was at that time lodging with the people of the Havens, sailed south to safety on the Isle of Balar.
   At the beginning of the Second Age, Círdan sailed east to found the Grey Havens on the Gulf of Lhûn, and the remnant of the Elves of the Havens must surely have accompanied him.
