Rivendell is the name of one of the last strongholds of the Elves in Middle Earth
depicted in 'Lord of the Rings', the classic fantasy epic of J.R.R. Tolkien.
It is a magical oasis of beauty, peace, harmony and healing
where the fellowship of the Ring regain strength and where is decided to join forces in the battle against evil.

Rivendell is a translation of the Sindarin 'Imladris' which literally means: 'Deeply Cloven Valley',
and was also the name of Master Elronds house. Elrond wore the Great Ring Vilya: the most powerfull of the Three Rings.
The legendary Rivendell was founded in the year 1697 of the Second Era and remained till the end of the Third Era a save-haven en lightbeakon,
especially during the longtime battle against Sauron the evil sorceror.
Master Elrond used the Ring Vilya together with the two other Rings of Power for what they were intended:
'to understand, to create and cure and to keep all things impecable'.

The house of Rivendell was not a fortress nor a camp of war.
It was a place of science, laughter, peace and quietness, situated next to a river surrounded by mighty woods on the valley.
Elronds power lie in wisdom instead of arms. The power which resided in Rivendell was only interested in force when necessary to defend itself.

What happens to the Earth happens to the children of the Earth.
