One of the two sons of Eärendil and Elwing, Elrond was born in the First Age of the Sun. Being one of the Half-elven and permitted to chose which race he would belong to, Elrond chose the Firstborn, the Eldar. Elrond was the Keeper of the strongest of the Elven-rings, Vilya, the Ring of Air, the Ring of Sapphire. In 1697 of the Second Age of the Sun, he founded Rivendell, or in the Elven tongue, Imladris. After the War of the Ring, he sailed into the West with the Ringbearers and the Keepers of the other two Elven Rings in the year 3021 of the Third Age.
