[edit] Synopsis

The chapter describes the end of the Great March of the Elves and the arrival to Valinor of the Vanyar and the Noldor on the island Tol Eressëa.

We are told how the Teleri were taught by Ossë in the shores of Beleriand and how they later became reluctant to leave Middle-earth. Those who remained built the cities of Brithombar and Eglarest on the shores of Falas with Círdan their King. The other Teleri arrive to the Undying Lands on Eressëa but prefer to live on the island.

Then follows a description of how the Elves lived in Valinor, in their city of Eldamar, the city of Tirion in the Calacirya and the haven of Alqualondë built by the Teleri on the shore of Aman. Then we are told the relationships among the three houses, and the children of the three Kings.
