Sauron and Lúthien :D(Doriath wars 2013 - http://dandusinda.rajce.idnes.cz/Doriathske_valky_2013#kapl.jpg)
Oropher had come among them with only a handful of Sindar, and they were soon merged with the Silvan Elves, adopting their language and taking names of Silvan form and style. This they did deliberately; for they came from Doriath after its ruin and had no desire to leave Middle-earth, nor to be merged with the other Sindar of Beleriand, dominated by the Noldorin Exiles for whom the folk of Doriath had no great love. They wished indeed to become Silvan folk and to return, as they said, to the simple life natural to the Elves before the invitation of the Valar had disturbed it.

The Unfinished Tales, Appendix B: THE SINDARIN PRINCES OF THE SILVAN ELVES

Since it’s a Thranduil and Oropher appreciation day, I think it’s the most appropriate time to bring back and share this extremely important quote. From this short passage we learn that when Oropher became a king of the Silvan Elves in Middle-earth, he didn’t try to impose his will and the culture of Sindar on them. It’s really amazing that both him and his son, Thranduil, embraced the culture and identity of the Silvan instead of for example, bringing the ‘upper’ sindarin customs and force it to their new people. Well it gets even better because they actually wanted to become Silvan folk and live a life far away from all the evil and quarells of other tribes. Like, if this doesn’t make Oropher and Thranduil great rulers then I don’t what what does.

But of all the Maiar Ossë and Uinen are best known to the Children of Ilúvatar.
Ossë is a vassal of Ulmo, and he is master of the seas that wash the shores of Middle-earth. He does not go in the deeps, but loves the coasts and the isles, and rejoices in the winds of Manwë; for in storm he delights, and laughs amid the roaring of the waves. His spouse is Uinen, the Lady of the Seas, whose hair lies spread through all waters under sky. All creatures she loves that live in the salt streams, and all weeds that grow there; to her mariners cry, for she can lay calm upon the waves, restraining the wildness of Ossë. The Númenóreans lived long in her protection, and held her in reverence equal to the Valar.

If ever he looked south its memory dimmed the light of the Sun, and though he knew that it was now broken and deserted and under the vigilance of the Kings of Men, fear spoke in his heart that it was not conquered for ever: it would arise again.

It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.
