House of Ekryie

(pronunciation: Eck-Rhee-aay) Powerful noble family of High-Elves who rule the forest realm of Melinarë. After the fall of Ectharë and the Sundering, the Ekryie household and many other elves migrated south and formed the great elvish forest realm of Melinarë. The Ekryie family has ruled the High-Elf community within the Melinar Forest for thousands of years, and continues to be the strongest line of elvish royalty on Corwyn. Because of the great longevity of the elvish race, only eight Elf-kings have sat upon the Adamantine Throne in Astrakan over the last 4,353 years.

The House of Ekryie was founded by King Meleraf, and the current monarch is King Generaf. The remaining six High-Elf kings of Melinarë are listed below:
