ANSWER: The Elves were compelled to leave Middle-earth by a spiritual summons of the Valar, calling them to their ultimate destinies within Time and Space. The Valar knew there would be strife between the Elder Children (the Elves) and the Younger Children (Men) and Adopted Children (Dwarves) of Iluvatar.

Why did the Elves and Gandalf leave Middle-earth?
For Gandalf, the reasoning is rather simple. He is a Maia, sent to Middle-earth to advise the peoples there in their struggle against Sauron, and with his task complete he is allowed to return to Valinor.
Where did the Elves leave to in LOTR?
The Undying Lands, which until that time had been part of the World, were removed forever from the reach of mortal Men, though the Elves could still sail West and come there, if they would. It is to the Undying Lands that the White Ship sails at the end of The Lord of the Rings.
What happened to tauriel in Lord of the Rings?
Tauriel was banished from Mirkwood by Thranduil, so what happens to Tauriel after the Battle of Five Armies remains unknown, although actress Evangeline Lilly stated in an interview that Tauriel returns to Mirkwood.
Is Aragorn half elf?
Though he chose men, having essentially been raised as an elf, it’s assumed that he retained many elvish characteristics (as Arwen does later on.)) And Aragorn was one of these descendants of Elros, so he does technically have some elvish blood.
Is valinor in heaven?
Q: Is Valinor Heaven? ANSWER: Valinor is not “heaven” in The Lord of the Rings, in the sense that it is not the abode of God (Ilúvatar). In the mythology of Middle-earth, as represented by The Silmarillion, Ilúvatar dwells in the Timeless Halls, which exist outside of Space and Time (Ëa).
Did Legolas go to Valinor?
By special permission of the Valar, the Hobbits Frodo Baggins, Bilbo Baggins, and Samwise Gamgee were also permitted to go to Valinor, as they had once borne the One Ring of Sauron. Later, after the death of Aragorn, Legolas the Elf would sail to Valinor and bring with him Gimli the Dwarf.
Why didn’t Arwen go to Valinor after Aragorn died?
In fact she wouldn’t be the only elf to do so. If Aragorn were to live and Arwen remained an immortal elf, they would never ever ever see each other again. The only way for Arwen to stay with Aragorn, in life and in death, was to give up her immortality.
Did the Dwarves visit Bilbo again?
Among the Dwarves of the company, Balin was the second-eldest dwarf, and loosely held the position of deputy leader. Of all the Dwarves in the quest, Balin was the only one known to have visited Bilbo at Bag End after their quest for the Lonely Mountain.
Why was Tauriel added to the Hobbit?
Tauriel is an elf that was completely made up for “The Hobbit” movies to “bring some more female energy,” according to Entertainment Weekly. The elf, however, has an exponentially bigger impact than vigor.
Why did they put Legolas in The Hobbit?
The fact is, Legolas was probably present for many of the events in the Hobbit, simply because his father, Thranduil (the Elvenking in the Hobbit) was a fairly major secondary character. He was likely present during the Dwarves captivity as well as the Battle of Five Armies.
Is Legolas half elf?
As a son of the Elven-king Thranduil, who had originally come from Doriath, Legolas was at least half Sindarin Elf; his mother’s identity is completely unknown. Like all Elves, Legolas had great respect and appreciation for nature.
Is Legolas an elf prince?
ANSWER: Yes, Legolas is an Elven prince, or a prince of Elves. As the son of an Elven king (Thranduil, King of the Wood Elves of northern Mirkwood) Legolas was in fact a prince and a prince among Elves.
Why do they call him Strider?
Strider or Stick-at-naught Strider (as told by Bill Ferny), was a nickname given to Aragorn by the people of Eriador (as for example at Bree) during his time as a Ranger. The name seems to refer to the long legs of the Rangers, who were of Númenórean blood, compared to the shorter-legged Bree-men.
