King Meleraf Elyrion

Meleraf Elyrion was the first High-Elf ruler of the 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 Adamantine Throne of the new nation called Melinarë.

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 warriors, the Saar later bestowed three Silvarils upon his son, Ainuraf of House Elyrion
