So, who is the greatest Elf in the Silmarillion? Is it Turgon, is it Beleg Strongbow ? Tell us who you like and why. Personally, i love Feanor, he shows us that Elves aren't perfect and can indeed be corrupted. He's also a bad ass, he shut his door to Morgoth. The most powerful inhabitant in Ea. On top of that he created both the Silmarils, and the Palantir. Other favourites include Fingolfin and Gil-galad.
