Anguirel was one of the two swords forged by Eöl from an iron meteorite. Its mate, Anglachel, was given to Thingol as payment for living in Nan Elmoth.[1]


It was kept by Eöl as his weapon, but was later stolen by his son Maeglin.[1][2] It was presumed that Maeglin stole Anguirel when he and his mother Aredhel fled to Gondolin.


Anguirel has the Sindarin elements ang, which means "iron", uir meaning "fiery", and êl which means "star". The name would have a complete meaning close to "Iron-of-the-fiery-star".[3]
