Guided by the light of a Silmaril, Eärendil navigated Vingilot through the Shadowy Seas to the Blessed Realm of Aman; he was the first Mortal to do so. He was not allowed, however, to return to Middle-earth, except to join the host of the Valar in the final War of Wrath against Morgoth. With Vingilot, Eärendil slew Ancalagon the Black, the greatest dragon that ever lived.
The ship was referred to as Wingilótë during much of the First Age, but most instances of Quenya W became V after the First Age ended, yielding Vingilótë. The name was finally abbreviated to Vingilot.
