Amdír was a Sindarin elf from Doriath who left east into Eriador after the War of Wrath. He took over the realm of Lórinand (later Lórien) from the Silvan Elves who had had no lords before, south of where Oropher established a realm among the Silvan Elves of Mirkwood.
Amdír's fate is not exactly known, but it is probable he joined Gil-galad's forces in the War of the Last Alliance of Elves and Men, and was killed in the Battle of Dagorlad alongside most of those who followed him. His son Amroth succeeded him as King of Lórien.
