Many of the Elves of Beleriand relocated to Lindon at the beginning of the Second Age, where they were ruled by Gil-galad. The Ñoldor mainly dwelt in Forlindon, and the Sindar (and surviving Laiquendi) in Harlindon. Together, they built Mithlond (the Grey Havens) on the Gulf, and many Elves left from there to Valinor. Lindon was one of the two Ñoldorin Kingdoms during the Second Age (the other being Eregion or Hollin), until Gil-galad was killed by Sauron during the War of the Last Alliance of Elves and Men. After that, most of the Ñoldor finally departed for Valinor, and Lindon became depopulated, now ruled by Gil-galad's lieutenant, the Sindarin elf Círdan the Shipwright, who kept building ships for the departing Elves.
