Court of Celeborn
|Court of Celeborn|
The Court of Celeborn is one of the four Allegiance Halls and is the main stage for the Court of Lothlórien quest chain. The leaders of the Realms of Lothlórien, Imladris and Mirkwood have gathered here to discuss what is to be done with the lingering threat of Dol Guldur.
In contrast to the Hall of the King and Erebor, the Court of Celeborn is not part of the contiguous maps of Middle-earth, meaning you cannot walk or ride there from other locations in the game world. It is initially only accessible via "instance travel" -- for those who have pledged Allegiance to the Court of Lothlórien. However, beginning the quest The Lady and the Mirror will cause an Elf to appear at the base of the ramp to the House of Celeborn and another Elf to appear by the entrance to the Court of Celeborn, to provide instant travel between the Court of Celeborn and Caras Galadhon. These remain after the quest is completed.
The Court of Lothlórien
"At a great height above the ground he came to a wide talan, like the deck of a great ship. On it was built a house, so large that almost it would have served for a hall of Men upon the earth. He entered behind Haldir, and found that he was in a chamber of oval shape, in the midst of which grew the trunk of the great mallorn, now tapering towards its crown, and yet making still a pillar of wide girth.
The chamber was filled with a soft light; its walls were green and silver and its roof of gold. Many elves were seated there. On two chairs beneath the bole of the tree and canopied by a living bough there sat, side by side, Celeborn and Galadriel." - The Fellowship of the Ring, Chapter 7.
The Elven Kingdom of Lothlórien
Lothlórien, translated as "Lórien of the Blossom" and usually called just Lórien, are the fabled golden woods whose Elves dwell high in the mallorn-trees and are ruled by Celeborn, wisest of the Eldar of Middle-earth, and the Lady Galadriel. The Golden Wood, is a blaze of light and color at the edge of the Black Pit of Moria. Even in this time of shadow and fear, Celeborn, Galadriel, and their Silvan people keep it safe.
When Celeborn and Galadriel passed into Middle-earth, they settled at last beyond the Misty Mountains among the silvan folk of Laurelindórenan, the Land of the Valley of Singing Gold. Its name sprang from the colours of the mallorn trees which grow there, whose leaves turn golden in the autumn. Lord Celeborn is acknowledged throughout Middle-earth as the wisest of the Wise, while Galadriel his wife is known to have the gift of foresight, though much of the truth lies in the Ring of Power she secretly wields: Nenya, the Ring of Adamant. Together they rule the Golden Wood, protecting it through the power of Nenya.
