In The Fellowship of the Ring the group meets the Lady of the Woods during their trip. But who is she and what's her relationship with the rest of the elves. For example Legolas didn't look like he knew anyone when they encountered the Lady's henchmen in the wood, so I'm confused.

Please make sure for future questions to actually write complete questions in the question body. You have repeatedly kept on misusing the question title to make up for the incomplete and out of context text in the question body. This significantly compromises reading pleasure. – Napoleon Wilson May 20 '13 at 8:52

The elves in the woods were the elves of Lothlorien, ruled by Celeborn and Galadriel (also known as the Lady of the Wood).

Legolas on the other hand is a prince of Mirkwood, a completely different forest realm. So it's not that surprising that Legolas doesn't know anyone there.
