After sacking the ancient Elven kingdom of Doriath, the Dwarves of Nogrod returning to Nogrod heavy laden and slowed by the spoils of their victory. Upon reaching Sarn Athrad, they were suddenly assailed by a foe they could not at first identify but as they climbed the river-banks of the Gelion, they saw that they were elves.
From the local woods, the Laiquendi of the Ossiriand led by Beren Erchamion and accompanied by his son Dior defeated the Dwarves with Beren slaying the Lord of Nogrod himself and taking the Nauglamír, the Necklace of the Dwarves from him.
