There are several Elves in the time of the War of the Ring that were around since the First Age - Galadriel, Celeborn, Thranduil and Celeborn .... and who knows the real age (and identity) of Glorfindel of Rivendell?

Of all these, Galadriel is the only that saw Aman (though it is possible that Glorfindel did also). Thranduil and Cirdan were Sindarin.

Galadriel is the only one whose age is clear since thranduil and celeborn both can be born long after elw and melian founded doriath, because that existed several ages before the Noldor came to ME.
I thought cirdan was the oldest male, but 5 min. after a posted the question i knew that his origin was unsure, so Galadriel is the only answer.

Thranduil and Celeborn may have also existed long before Doriath was a Kingdom. We just don't know when and where they were born, only that neither journeyed to Aman in the First Age.

This question/thread had no concrete answer so it's going to the barrow.
