King Ectharion Liëflynne
ECTHARION.jpg

First Wood-Elf king of Thekarë, founder of the House of Liëflynne, and one of three Elven leaders of the Sundering. Ectharion swore to keep vigil on the East after the fall of Drotharë and the banishment of the Dark-Elves at the end of the Second Age. As king, he took it upon his people to safeguard the West from the eastern menace.

Ectharion answered the call for aid from the Council of Sorcerë when they were threatened by Alokkair, and marched from Therakan with a large army of Wood-Elves. Ectharion was slain in 252/3 during the Battle of Orgorod. After his death, the Wood-Elves began to wither and the vigil on the East was not maintained. Ectharion was succeeded on the Oakheart Throne by his son Valarion.
