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]

History

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.

Etymology

Although the meaning of its name is unclear, Anguirel has the Sindarin ang, which means "iron".[3]
