"That is the path of despair. Of folly I would say, if the long wisdom of Elrond did not forbid me."
The Fellowship of the Ring, The Council of Elrond

Erestor was an Elf of Rivendell and the Chief Counsellor of Elrond's household.


Erestor attended the Council of Elrond on October 25, 3018. During the discussion about what to do with the One Ring, Erestor asked whether Tom Bombadil could be called upon to help, or whether the Ring could be sent to him for safe-keeping, but that option was rejected.[1]

After the War of the Ring, Erestor was among the party that accompanied Arwen to Minas Tirith for her wedding to Aragorn. They arrived in the city on Midsummer's Eve of 3019. It is not known whether Erestor left Middle-earth with Elrond in September of 3021, but it is most likely that he passed over the sea into the West at some point.[2]

Other versions of the legendariumEdit

In The Return of the Shadow, it was said that "There were three counsellors of Elrond's own household: Erestor his kinsman (a man of the same half-elvish folk known as the children of Luthien), " and beside him two elflords of Rivendell."[3] In others, Erestor was continued to be referred as Elrond's kinsman and one of the Half-elven. He was considered as one of the Nine Walkers, called Erestor "Half-elf", who had the role that the character Pippin later would finally assume. [4]
