Rivendell

Post  Yrobryn on Mon Jun 08, 2009 1:29 pm

It was established and ruled by Elrond in the Second Age of Middle-earth. In addition to Elrond and his family, notable Elves who lived there included Glorfindel and Erestor.
Rivendell is located at the edge of a narrow gorge of the river Bruinen (one of the main approaches to Rivendell comes from a nearby ford of Bruinen), but well hidden in the moorlands and foothills of the Hithaeglir or the Misty Mountains.
The climate is cool-temperate and semi-continental with moderately warm summers, fairly snowy — but not frigid — winters and moderate precipitation. Seasons are more pronounced than in areas further west, such as the Shire, but less extreme than the places east of the Misty Mountains.
