The Battle of the Firth of Drengist was a battle of the War of the Jewels between the forces of Morgoth and the forces of the Ñoldor of Hithlum.

HistoryEdit

Almost one-hundred years after the Dagor Aglareb, Morgoth, believing that Fingolfin's watch was weak, chose to attack him from the west instead of from the northeast. Coming down from the cold north where no elf would dare enter, they came down the coasts of the Beleriand following the route of the exiles long ago and entered the Firth of Drengist, hoping to take them by surprise but they were espied before they could do so. The Ñoldor, led by Fingon easily defeated them and drove the survivors into the sea. Afterwards, Morgoth choose to achieve his ends by stealth biding his time and waiting until his strength was built before he ever attacked in force again.

The battle was relatively small compared to those of past and was historically considered to be relatively unimportant despite the victory[1]
