LindonLindon - Now that Gondolin and Nargothrond were destroyed the Eldar needed a new home.  And they built one in the Grey Havens and named it Lindon.


"In the Great Battle and the tumults of the fall of Thangorodrim there were mighty convulsions in the earth, and Beleriand was broken and laid waste; and northward and westward many lands sank beneath the waters of the Great Sea.  In the east, in Ossiriand, the walls of Ered Luin were broken, and a great gap was made in them towards the south, and a great gulf of the sea flowed in.  Into the gulf, the River Lhȗn fell by a new course, and it was called therefore the Gulf of Lhȗn.  That country had of old been named Lindon by the Noldor, and this name it bore thereafter; and many of the Eldar still dwelt there, lingering, unwilling yet to forsake Beleriand where they had fought and labored long.  Gil-galad son of Fingon was their king, and with him was Elrond Half-elven, son of Eärendil the Mariner and brother of Elros first king of Númenor." ~The Simarillion (Of the Rings of Power and the Third Age)
