When talk turns to elves, fairies and dwarfs everybody thinks immediately of fairytales and sagas wherein these beings are mentioned. The most well-known is probably the leprechaun from Cologne or from Ireland. The Brockhaus Encyclopaedia has this to say about this: “Elves, singular elf, are figures of light in German mythology and fairy-tales, beings somewhere between human beings and gods, in charge of earth, water and air. North mythology differentiates between beautiful, friendly elves of light and ugly, evil elves of darkness that dwarfs belong to. Other types of elves are water nymphs and house spirits. The concept of an Elf King is found in the name of Alberich (- rich = king) and also in the name Elverkonge in Danish folk ballads, something Herder understands to be Ellerkonge or Erl-king.”
