The realms of the Elves

A term of uncertain meaning, but apparently referring to those lands under the power of the Elves. The heart of Elvendom in Middle-earth was Cerin Amroth in Lothlórien, at least according to Aragorn. After the end of the Third Age, the power of the Elves in Middle-earth came to an end, and most departed over the Great Sea. So Elvendom east of the Sea came to an end, but the Elves still dwelt in the Blessed Realm of the West.
