The demigod Cenarius is the son of Malorne and Elune.
The War of the Ancients was one of the defining moments of Azeroth's history -- after all, it was responsible for the Sundering that shaped the world into the continents we know today.
Druid lore already has its own unique extended history, and Druid Artifact lore only expands on it.

Illidan Stormrage is one of the most well-known figures in Warcraft lore, although the majority of his story took place long before World of Warcraft -- he was first featured back in Warcraft 3.
A couple of weeks back we took a look at the origin of Sargeras and the Eredar. This week, we pick up with Sargeras' first assault on Azeroth, the War of the Ancients. This conflict changed the face of the world forever, splitting the primeval continent of Kalimdor into four pieces (that we know of) -- modern Kalimdor, Northrend, the Eastern Kingdoms and Pandaria.
