Aelinthaldaar was the capital of Illefarn, an ancient elven civilization in northwest Faerûn. The city was located where Waterdeep would later stand.[1]


The elves destroyed their own city in −1100 DR when they retreated to Evermeet, leaving very little behind.[1]

A magical effect, or mythal known as the Melairshield,[2] that prevented the plateau from collapsing, regardless of activities below the surface, remained in effect. Crypts remained intact below the Pantheon Temple of the Seldarine in Waterdeep.[citation needed]
