Lothlórien, also known as Lórien, is a forest and Elven realm near the lower Misty Mountains. It was first settled by Nandorin Elves, but they were later joined after the great Kinslaying by a small number of Ñoldor and Sindar  under Celeborn of Doriath and Galadriel, daughter of Finarfin. It is located on the River Celebrant, southeast of Khazad-dûm, and is the only place in Middle-earth where the golden Mallorn trees grow. In LOTR: Rise to War the faction also includes both the Elves of Woodland Realm ruled by Thranduil The Elvenking and the haven of Imladris (Rivendell) in the Bruinen Vale ruled by Elrond Half-Elven.
