The timing and nature of Thranduils arrival [In reply to] Can't Post

made no sense, at best it could be explained as a a coincidental visit, but why such an armed host of warriors?

The elf/dwarf conflict can largely be explained by the murder of Thingol and the taking of the Silmaril. He was one of three racial forefathers, not simply a ruler of a kingdom at a given point in history. He would be especially reverential as the father of Luthien who whose life, deeds and legacy were one of the principal matters of histories according to Tolkien. Further cause of racial conflict is likely due to the nature of the dwarves creation. Yavanna told Aule there would be strife between her creations and his and by extension as the Elves are so attuned to all aspects of Arda in accordance with the Music of creation and the dwarves are excluded from this then strife naturally arises.
