The Dragon-helm of Dor-lómin was originally made for him by Telchar the smith of Nogrod. Azaghâl had given the helm to Maedhros after he saved his life when Azaghâl was waylaid by Orcs upon the Dwarf-Road in East Beleriand.
He was slain by the Dragon Glaurung after severely wounding him during the Nirnaeth Arnoediad. After his death, his kin bore him away from the battlefield ignoring the rest of their enemies and singing a frightening dirge that allowed them to leave without further incident.
As Belegost was the founding stronghold of the Broadbeams it is possible Azaghâl was the Father of the Broadbeams in the same manner that Durin was King of Khazad-dûm and Father of the Longbeards.[The History of Middle-earth, Vol. XII: The Peoples of Middle-earth, chapter X: "Of Dwarves and Men" 1]
