Amdír, also known as Malgalad[1], was an Elf of Doriath, the father of Amroth and King of Lothlórien.

Biography Edit

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, south of where Oropher established the Woodland Realm among the Silvan Elves of Mirkwood.

Amdír and Oropher joined Gil-galad's forces when he crossed the Misty Mountains and took the help of the Longbeards of Moria in the War of the Last Alliance of Elves and Men. He was killed in the Battle of Dagorlad alongside most of those who followed him. His son Amroth succeeded him as King of Lórien.[1]
