House of Alessarë
ELEGHERON.jpg

Powerful ruling family of Elder-Elves who came to Corwyn from Eryn Norvë early in the First Age and founded the Elf-realm of Ectharë under King Elegheron in 306/1. The Alessarë household expanded elvish dominion throughout the continent and successfully fought the race of dragons for its control, in the hard-fought War of the Dragons.

When the War of Wrath began, the Alessarë family tried vainly to hold Ectharë together, but its last three rulers; Starion, Ismelian, and Talarion Brightstar were killed in that war and the great Elf-realm came to an end. After the Elvish Civil War ended, the elves divided into three separate racial sub-groups, which became known as the High-Elves, the Wood-Elves, and the Grey-Elves. The Alessarë family then ruled the Grey-Elves of Wyntharë for many centuries under Queen Ariel, until around 1055/3, when King Ajathar Alessarë decided to leave Corwyn forever and return to Eryn Norvë. Because of the great longevity of the elvish race, only nine Elf-kings sat on the Eternal Throne of Ectharë, and only two sat on the Veiled Throne of Wyntharë. The House of Alessarë ruled Ectharë for its entire 6,263-year existence.
