Lenwë was a Teleri elf, founder of the Nandor and the father of Denethor.

BiographyEdit

On the Great Journey to Valinor, Lenwë followed Olwë with the host of the Teleri until they reached the Anduin where he forsook the westward march. Afterwards, he and his followers broke away and went downstream and never crossed the Misty Mountains. He founded the Nandor culture, to which his son Denethor later led, and dwelt along the Vales of Anduin. He died of unknown causes somewhere along the Vales of Anduin or perhaps somewhere in Eriador.

His descendants, hearing of Thingol's great realm, crossed into the Beleriand under the leadership of his son Denethor en masse becoming the Laiquendi or Green-elves, who from then onward dwelt in the Ossiriand.[1][2]

EtymologyEdit

The name Lenwë was the Quenya form of the Sindarin word Denweg, which meant "leaving" or "departure".
