    Legolas and Glorfindel

    So I have 2 questions...

    I've been trying to find out which House Legolas comes from...
    Would it be right to assume he is Teleri and belongs to the group that has not seen the light of Aman? If so, why is he so powerful?

    The other question I have is about Glorfindel and the Noldor in general. It comes in 2 parts.

    1.) Tolkien says that the elves who went to the Blessed Realm saw the light of Aman and thus grew in stature/strength etc. One of the benefits seems to be the ability to live in both the physical world and the spirit world (Gandalf explains this to Frodo about Glorfindel while he was recovering in Rivendell). I presume this does not extend to the elves who decided not to go to the land of Aman?

    2.) If the Noldor have children in Middle Earth, does it mean that their children inherit the benefits of having been there or does is it not get passed down?
