The current knight , Gathdin , is cursed with ambition . With the Elves leaving , he seeks to expand his cleared holdings . However , Sularin , the clan lord in this area , dislikes Gathdin intensely and has refused to grant him any further privileges . His lordship is further outraged by the Elves' tolerance of Hobbit squatters .

Neither group pays any attention to Gathdin ; when next he thinks the Sirannar are looking away , he may try to enforce his rights violently .

Actually, Ladyford in this century was the site of a bridge. Legend had it that the last Elvish Princess of Siragale drowned herself here. The Elves did not record such an event; they seldom spoke at all about the fate of the Lady Elindiel . The name of this river crossing did , however , recall a little-known tragedy involving a descendent of the Knights of Corena. The suicide had something to do with the fate of the family treasure after the fall of Arthedain, and the curse of a noble Elf , possibly Elindiel herself. Few surviving records relate the incident; an Elf questioned by Frodo Baggins , according to his diary, "said it was far more boring than one might expect, which only made this Hobbit far more curious about it.
