The Dragon Helm of Dor-lómin

The Dragon-helm of Dor-lómin, also known as the Dragon of Dor-lómin, Dragon-head of the North, and the Helm of Hador[1], was a formidable Dwarven war helmet from the First Age. It was most notably associated with Túrin.

Description

The appearance of the helm was magnificent; it was adorned with gold on the background of grey steel. At the top of the helm, the armor bore the sculpture of the dragon Glaurung, The Deceiver. The helm also had a visor "in the style of most dwarven armor." The armor struck fear into the hearts of the enemies of the wearer.

History

Túrin wearing the helm

The Dragon-helm was crafted by the Dwarf-smith Telchar of Nogrod for the lord of Belegost, Azaghâl. Azaghâl then gave it to Maedhros as a gift, who eventually passed it on to Fingon. From then on, it remained in the keeping of the High Kings of the Ñoldor, who then passed it on to the House of Hador.

The helm was given to Túrin Turambar sometime between FA 463 and FA 473 by his foster father, Thingol, who had received it from Túrin's mother, Morwen.[2] As Túrin's father Húrin was of lesser stature than his ancestors, he could not wear the helm in battle; therefore, the helm was not captured with him in the Nírnaeth Arnoediad.

Túrin, however, was of greater stature than his father and was able to unlock the magical properties of the ancient helm. It had the ability to protect the wearer from any harm or wound, major or minor: "A power was in it that guarded any who wore it from wound or death, for the sword that hewed it was broken, and the dart that smote it sprang aside."[citation needed]
