365 Days of Middle-earth ~ Day 249: Ingwë

Ingwë, King of the Vanyar, was chosen by Oromë to visit Valinor and persuade the Eldar to embark upon the Great Journey. He led the First Kindred to the Uttermost West, settling first in Tirion and later in the halls of Manwë and Varda upon Taniquentil. He was later named High King of the Elves, and they held him in such reverence that he never returned to Middle-earth, save only to lead the Host of the Vanyar to the Great Battle in which Morgoth was overthrown.
