First Age to Third Age History[]

Before the Second Age it is not known how The Wood-elves lived but it is possible they lived in small tribal groups wandering the forest.

In the Second Age after the War of Wrath and the destruction of the Beleriand, Oropher, a Sindarin prince, came to the forest known as Greenwood the Great.The Sindarin company intended to live like the Wood-elves: natural and undisturbed. This notion was appealing to the Wood-elves and Oropher was soon named their king, adopting their language and way of life. After being named King of the Woodland Realm, Oropher established his capital on Amon Lanc in the southern part of the forest. The Woodland realm flourished in peace with its boundaries unchanged and way of life undisturbed for over a millennium. Sometime after Oropher had his capital moved further north in around the Mountains of Mirkwood. The main reason for this was the growing threat of Sauron in the East. Despite this problem, the Elves of the Woodland Realm still continued to roam the south of the forest westward down the Anduin.

Over one hundred years after the Downfall of Númenor, the threat of Sauron returned once again to Middle-earth. Oropher and the Elves of Lórien under Amdír both agreed to create a large army and a combined force of Wood-elves and Galadhrim marched to support the Last Alliance of Elves and Men. Though they were as determined to defeat Sauron as the others, Oropher and Amdír's army was lightly armed and less experienced in major warfare. They also refused to submit to the supreme authority of Gil-galad due to past disputes with Ñoldor, and so fought independently. They suffered heavy losses and Oropher and Amdír were both killed. Oropher's son, Thranduil, survived the war and took his father's place as King of the Woodland Realm.

Despite the heavy losses their people had suffered during the War of the Last Alliance, the Elves of the Woodland Realm survived and continued living peacefully in the forest for the next millennium. The peace was broken when a mysterious being known as the Necromancer began living in the abandoned halls of Amon Lanc. Afterwards, the forest became dark and tainted, infested with Orcs, Great Spiders, and other mysterious and savage beings. The elves were then forced to remove themselves to the northernmost part of the forest and the capital relocated to a cave settlement under a wooded hill, in the northeastern border of the forest. From then on, the Woodland Realm remained confined to the north. It was at this time that the Elves renamed the forest to Mirkwood along other with other places they formerly occupied.

The Elves of the Woodland Realm survived but lived more cautiously considering the increased danger. They traded with the neighboring realms of the Lonely Mountain and Dale. This however was not to last because everything changed when the dragon Smaug came down from the North and destroyed both the Dwarves of the Lonely Mountain and the Mannish town of Dale. Afterwards, the elves moved about the forest in secret and were very distrustful of any strangers and their only contact with the outside world was trade and occasional visitation with the refugees of Dale living in Laketown on the Long Lake.

Sometime after Thorin and Company came through the Woodland Realm on their way to the Lonely Mountain on The Quest of Erebor. Thranduil considered them trespassers and had them imprisoned. After the death of Smaug, the king offered relief to the Men of Laketown for Bard’s valiant slaying of the dragon.

The timely arrival of Gandalf with a warning of an army of goblins and wargs coming to do battle for the treasure forced the elves, men, and dwarves to join forces and fight a common enemy.

Fourth Age History [Molo History][]

The Silvan elves were without a king since Molo97 took the throne in Spring of 2016, who initially buil't his halls on the edge of his southern border. King Finrod (Molo97) built then a fort near Thranduil's halls, and started his city in June 2016, after the two wars against the orcs proved his defenses too weak to repel a full assault from the dark legions. Now only ruins are on the southern border, plagued by past wars, but Thranduil's Halls stand strong against the enemy. King Thranduil (Molo97) partecipated in the first two wars against Sauron (Lukereds), the raid of Nurn, the defense of Edoras, the Siege of Eilenach. He left the throne in January 2018. After that, the Silvan elves lost their major role in the events of Middle Earth. In Spring 2018 Siegfried King of Artheloth gained the control of the kingdom, turning it into a vassal of Artheloth and entrusted to the Commander of the Royal Guards Gancelot (Giacobrick) the rule of the land.

King Thranduil got back after some months of absence and saw the poor shape of the elven kingdoms: the wood elves vassallized, as the galadhrim. The high elves few in number, but a small light in his thoughts: Tol Edhil, a new kingdom born in the east. Knowing that returning to the wood elves could start a civil war, if not managed right, he asked a small council with the king of Artheloth and his vassal, Siegfried and Giancelot. Siegfried was not greedy, nor evil, and agreed to release Wood elves if Giancelot could become king of another nation. Thranduil, hearing his conditions, had a plan. Thranduil always had a plan. He asked to MarsonX to release Lothlorien, so he could create a federation of all the elven kingdoms; MarsonX, after much debating, accepted, and Lorien now was free. With Lorien now able to enter in the federation Thranduil offered it to Giancelot, who gladly accepted. Then he invited even Artheloth, with the unespected joy of Siegfried. Then Tol Edhil, under the rule of Aelwen, and Lindon joined the federation, starting a new age for the elves in Middle Earth.

Not much time passed that clouds of war gathered in Middle Earth. Hexenetor disappeared, and MarsonX too. As the same time, two new rhunic chieftains declared unrestricted war to all the free folks and started their raids, helped by the Witchking and many orcs. Gondor missed the call for help from their northern brothers, and they protected only Tol Edhil, using the vassallized Dorwinion to throw incursions and to defend the new walls of the city. Enraged by the actions of the rhunic lords, Thranduil decided to do something. He mocked them, accusing both of cowardness, because they not dared to raid him, but only a new born and fragile kingdom or an old and vanishing one. The easterling marched in Mirkwood, but Thranduil had a plan. Thranduil always had a plan: being unable of helping directly his allies -he had to rejuvenate a kingdom left too much withouth a strong and active ruler- he lured them away from other targets, forcing them to a harsh march on the woods, culminated in the brief siege of a fort. The fort was assaulted, and Thranduil left quicly with the garrison, knowing that the easterling couldn't stay longer away from home. This strategy proved his worthiness, but it required time, a resource that Thranduil was short of.

After three other wars to help free folks, Thranduil focused on his kingdom, using the time he had to strenghten his defences; he helped his friends in the meantime, but with limited effort, because his resources were scarse, and his silver vanishing. Nonetheless, he managed to regain control of the broken situation in the free folks and with clever diplomacy, that he didn't lack as much as gold, he reunited the dwarves with Gondor, fixing a little bit the relations between the kingdoms.

Wars

The first wars

The wars started when Sauron (Lukereds) gathered his armies and his six generals, and ambushed King Wolfen in his fortress. The king of Gondor then asked for help to King Molo97, who helped him defeating his enemies, killing many of them with his bow. Many month passed, before Mordor acted for revenge. Sauron (Lukereds) with his generals and the Witchking (DragonMaster) launched an assault against the fortress of king Molo97. So Molo97, with the help of King Fundin (Riccardicus), King Sirmatte, King Tuonobotto, King Trild900 and many elves, men and dwarves tried to repel the enemy, but they were overwhelmed. Fortunately, the fort near Thranduil’s halls repelled the attackers. The final act was on the walls of Cerin Amroth, where the free folks finally managed to defeat Mordor one last time. After that, the elves were never ever threatened by war in their borders.

Other wars fought:

  • First siege of Edoras (King Finrod)
  • First Siege of Eilenach(King Finrod)
  • Raids in Ras Morthil (King Thranduil)
  • Battle of the many tears (King Thranduil)
  • War of the hills (King Thranduil)
  • The war of the sun and the moon (King Thranduil)
  • Fifth war for Ithilien (King Thranduil)
  • Second Dwarven civil war (King Thranduil)
