One of the effects the Balrog had on the Galadrim was that they lost their king, Amroth. Although he was Sindarin he was deeply in love with a Silven Elf, Nimrodel, who lived alone in the woods. When the Balrog awoke she was so afraid she wished to take ship and go to the West. Because Amroth loved her so much, he forsook his people and went with her. Tragically, they became separated as they crossed the White Mountains and Amroth came to Lond Ernil (later Dol Amroth) alone. Only one ship remained, and while waiting on board for Nimrodel's arrival, one night the ship broke its moorings during a storm and was washed out to sea. Crying Nimrodel's name, Amroth dived into the water and attempted to swim back to shore. Neither Amroth or Nimrodel were ever seen again.So what harm did the Dwarves initial awakening of the Balrog in Moria cause the Galadrim way back when, other that it was the mortal enemy of Elves? Did it leave Moria or just draw orcs to it, who then subsequently raided the borders of Loth-lorien?
