During the [[War of the Ring]] nothing is said of Glorfindel. Whatever his role, he survived and joined Elrond's company to the [[Wedding of Elessar]]. After that no more is said of him. Like Olórin, his task in Middle-earth was done, and the age of the [[Elves]] was over. He probably passed West, perhaps with the bearers of the [[Three Rings]] and [[the One Ring]]. Or he may have remained for a time in Middle-earth to oversee the cleanup after the war.

During the [[War of the Ring]] nothing is said of Glorfindel. Whatever his role, he survived and joined Elrond's company to the [[Wedding of Elessar]]. After that no more is said of him. Like Olórin, his task in Middle-earth was largely done, and the age of the [[Elves]] was over. He probably passed West, perhaps with the bearers of the [[Three Rings]] and [[the One Ring]]. Or he may have remained for a time in Middle-earth to help oversee the cleanup after the war. Speculatively, since he actually may have arrived in Endor before or as the Shadow fell upon Númenor in the 2nd Age, his purposes therefore seem to be mostly to the aid of the Elvenkind remaining in Endor, and as such, he would have continued in these endeavors, aiding [[Elves]] of all kindreds to safely reach the Havens that he and others maintained and protected, and thus, Glorfindel may have stayed well into the 4th Age along with [[Círdan]] and said others until the very last of the white ships sailed to Aman.
