BiographyEdit

Legolas's early history is unknown, but he was known to be a member of the House of the Tree and a scout of Galdor. He escaped the Fall of Gondolin with its survivors and led them across the Cristhorn. After the First Age he moved to Tol Eressëa where he remained ever after, going by the name Laiqalassë.[1]

Behind the ScenesEdit

The Legolas of Gondolin, whom Tolkien would have likely renamed, has a different etymology. His name (Laiqalassë in its pure form) comes from the primitive Quenya (Quenya) words laica, green, and lassë, leaf. The names are very similar, but the characters were different: Legolas of Gondolin was a Ñoldorin exile, head of the House of the Tree.
