The Fall Of Nargothrond by WF74

The Fall Of Nargothrond, by woutart

The Sack of Nargothrond was an event of the late First Age that marked the destruction of the hidden Elven city of Nargothrond.


After the army of Nargothrond went out to meet Morgoth's army led by Glaurung on the field of Tumhalad, some miles north of the citadel, they were defeated and routed. The Elves left in the city awaiting their return instead found the Dragon and his Orcs crossing their bridge and entering the citadel, meeting little to no resistance. These people, including Orodreth's daughter Finduilas, were either captured and taken to Angband to be slaves, or killed.


Túrin facing Glaurung at Nargothrond

Coming late to the assault were Túrin and some few other survivors of the Battle of Tumhalad. At the sight of the Dragon, Túrin's companions fled, but Túrin stayed and came face-to-face with dragon, prepared to fight him. He was placed under Glaurung's dragon-spell and was forced to watch the captives be driven away. Then Glaurung released him from the spell, lying to him of his family's whereabouts (Morwen and Nienor) such that Túrin, leaving to go seek them, forgot about Finduilas. Knowing the evil this would cause Túrin, Glaurung settled down within the stronghold and slept for five years upon his new hoard of treasures.[1][2][3]
