The Aen Elle (Elder Speech meaning "People of the Alders", "Alder Folk"), are elves who inhabit another world and are culturally distinct from Aen Seidhe elves.

The latter arrived on the Continent after the Conjunction of the Spheres following the destruction of their ancestral homeworld. In the world of the Aen Elle, elves are constantly at war with unicorns. The King of the Alders, Auberon Muircetach, governed his people from the capital city of Tir ná Lia.

Their language, the Ellylon, is a variant of the Elder Speech.

A book about Aen Elle use of magic was written by Geoffrey Monck.

Notable Aen Elle Edit

The World of the Witcher Edit

There is a quote from Gerhart of Aelle where he is describing this elven group:
The oldest Aen Seidhe legends speak of another tribe of elves- the Aen Elle, which in Elder Speech means the People of the Alders. Their paths are said to have diverged ages ago, when the Conjunction of the Spheres gave birth to dozens, or perhaps even hundreds, of other worlds. The lord of the Aen Elle was supposedly Auberon Muircetach, known as the king of the Alders, who ruled from the city Tir na Lia. Several fantastical tales of this king exist, but it is not for me to judge here whether there is a kernel of truth in these legends.
