Battle of Dark Fen
|Victory for Dark Elves
|Hundreds of elves.
|Eothlir, most of his army.
One of the first battles between the two factions, the elves led by Eothlir were outnumbered three to one but his skill meant he was able to outmanoeuvre his enemy for hours with his spearmen and archers. Hundreds of those loyal to Malekith died trying to cross the wetlands for which the battle is named but finally they reached his lines, screaming their hatred and fury. However the Anar household guard stood firm beneath their banner. [1a]
However then Malekith himself descended on his Black Dragon, crushing them before begining to savage Eothlir who called out for his son to flee. [1a]
Very few of the loyalists survived the battle, scattered and hiding in the fens. [1a]
