Thranduil was Tolkien’s second elf with a name, speaking role, and authority. Elrond was not even called an outright elf in the Hobbit, he is called “elf-friend” as is only compared to an elf-Lord, it isn’t until the Lord of the Rings that we find out that Elrond is an elf himself, instead of just a friend of theirs. So Thranduil might as well have been the first.
