NAME ORIGIN
    Elves are mythical creatures found in Northern European folklore. Most depictions are of small, sprite-like creatures with magical powers. However, some interpretations, such as J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, depict Elves as human-like magical beings. The word comes from the Old English ælf. A king is a male sovereign, the leader of a kingdom. The word comes from the Proto-Germanic word kuninggaz.
