To be strictly accurate, the terms Calaquendi and Amanyar are not precisely equivalent there was a single Elf who belonged to the Calaquendi but not the Amanyar. This was Elu Thingol , who had journeyed to Aman as an ambassador before the Great Journey , and had thus seen the Light of the Two Trees , but who ultimately remained in Middle-earth.
The land that lay on the extreme western edge of the World, beyond the Great Sea. In the most ancient times, when the World was lit by the Lamps of the Valar , the land that would become Aman was an empty and nameless region. In those distant days, the Valar dwelt across the Sea in Middle-earth , and the Western lands were apparently uninhabited 7.
This refers to Ungoliant lurking in Avathar , to the south of Valinor but very definitely on the same continent, and yet 'Aman' is a separate land here. The point is underlined by the name Araman , the name of a region to the north of Valinor but again on the same continent, which means 'outside Aman'.

The ages that followed are known as the Days of Bliss in Aman: Melkor was bound in Mandos , and the Valar and Eldar dwelt in peace in the Light of the Two Trees. After three ages had passed, the term of Melkor's imprisonment came to an end, and he was released. He claimed to be reformed, but he set about creating a web of lies and deceits among the Elves that led to violence and betrayal until he was discovered and fled from Valinor.

After the end of the Third Age , Gandalf returned to his homeland in Aman with the Keepers of the Three Rings. With them travelled Bilbo and Frodo Baggins , the first Hobbits to make the journey into the West , in recognition for their part in the destruction of Sauron. A few exceptional cases aside, the way into the West remained closed to mortals , though it is rumoured that Gimli the Dwarf , as a fast friend of Legolas and Companion of the Ring , was permitted to travel there years later, and so was Frodo's faithful comrade Samwise Gamgee.
At that time Il 755 vatar wrought great changes in the geography of Arda. N 755 menor sank beneath the waves of the Sea , and to prevent any possible repetition of Ar-Pharaz 799 n's folly, Aman was taken away from the World altogether. New lands were created in its place, and mortal mariners travelling into the West would reach those lands instead of Aman. The Elves , though, could still travel a Straight Road from Middle-earth and return into the true West to reach and dwell in the Blessed Realm.
After this time, the Valar remained in Aman for the most part, and little is known of their doings. Ulmo the Lord of Waters gave greater aid than his peers to the Elves , and to those Men who were their allies (the first Men awoke as the Sun first rose). Ulmo sent wisdom and warnings through the waters of the World, and it was through his guidance that Tuor came to Gondolin , and thus that Tuor's son E 778 rendil was born there. Tuor himself set out into the West with his bride Idril , and legend said that they came to Aman where Tuor was accepted into the race of the Eldar , alone of all Mortals.
