|Battle of the Lammoth|
The Coming of Fingolfin into Middle-earth, by Jenny Dolfen
|Conflict: Wars of Beleriand|
|Date: FA 1|
|Outcome: Victory for the Ñoldor|
|House of Fingolfin and exiles, sons of Finarfin||Orcs of Angband|
|Fingolfin||Unnamed Orc commander †|
|An unknown number of Ñoldor-elves||An unknown number of Orcs|
|Argon† unknown probably moderate to light||Very heavy|
Fingolfin's host was attacked by a force of Orcs as they marched southwards from the Helcaraxë into the Beleriand in Middle-earth, that had been sent there by Morgoth to attack Fëanor in the rear and they fought their first battle. The Ñoldor were caught off-guard, and Fingolfin's son Argon was slain. Fingolfin and his host pursued the Orcs until they were completely destroyed, and then passed into Mithrim as the Moon first rose.
