Aldmer settlers purportedly arrived in Valenwood long before the [[Lore:First Era|First Era]]. They are remembered as some of the first of the [[Lore:Aldmer|Aldmer]] to leave [[Lore:Old Ehlnofey|Old Ehlnofey]].{{ref|name=VAS}} These settlers found the forests of Valenwood, or the Green, so dense and so inhabited by beasts that they could not hope to tame it, so they had to fight and adapt just to become predators instead of prey.{{ref|name=PGE3V|{{Cite Book|PGE|3|Valenwood}}}} Their adaption to life in Valenwood is believed to have led to the creation of the Bosmer.{{ref|name=VAS}}{{ref|name=PGE3V}}{{ref|name=PGE3All|{{Cite Book|PGE|3|All the Eras of Man}}}} It is said that their first King was named {{Lore Link|Arenthia (person)}}, and that the eponymous {{Lore Link|Arenthia|city}} is named after him.{{Ref|name=ARArenthia|[[Arena:Arenthia|Arenthia]] description in [[Arena:Arena|Arena]]}}
