King Meleraf Ekryie

Meleraf Ekryie was the first High-Elf ruler of the southern forest realm of Melinarë, and one of three leaders of the Sundering.

After the destruction of the great Elf-realm of Ectharë in the War of Wrath, Meleraf assumed the throne of the new southern elven -realm of Melinarë in 1541/2. Meleraf was one of the original High-Elves of Corwyn.

When Alokkair began the Gauth War and attempted to overthrow the Council of Sorcerë, Meleraf answered their desperate call for aid.

In the year 252/3, He marched from Astrakan with a large elven army, and fought heroically against Alokkair's Gauth and orc-hordes at the Battle of Orgorod. Sadly, he was slain on the field of battle.

In recognition of the bravery and sacrifice of Meleraf and his fallen Elven warriors, the Saar later bestowed three of the Silvarils upon the High-Elf realm of Melinarë.

Meleraf was succeeded on the Adamantine Throne by his son Ainuraf. His descendants became the House of Ekryie
