King Eradan Myrnäe

Eradan Myrnäe was one of the Seven Champions of the West who helped defeat Alokkair in the War of the Melanthir. He then went on to found the first Rynnish Kingdom of Alveron.

King Eradan was the holder of AVENGER; one of the seven Melanthir swords, given to him by the Council of Sorcerë as a reward for his courage and leadership in the War against Alokkair at the end of the Third Age. Eradan was also famous for single-handedly capturing Alokkair the sorcerer in combat during the Battle of Thürdrum.

After the defeat and imprisonment of Alokkair, Eradan went on to found the Rynnish kingdom of Alveron in the year 7/4, and assumed the Raven Throne. Eradan also ordered construction of Castle Myrdon, one of the great fortresses of Corwyn, and ordered Alokkair to be imprisoned there for eternity.

Eradan's lasting legacy was the powerful Myrnäe Dynasty.

The surname "Myrnäe" was given to King Eradan by the Council of Sorcerë; it means "Hailing from across the sea" in elvish. Legend has it that the Saar believed Eradan to have elvish blood; and his origin was from Eryn Norvë; the ancestral home of the Elder-Elves.
