The Battle of the Lammoth was the first battle fought after Fingolfin and the second, greater Host of the Ñoldor arrived in Lammoth.

HistoryEdit

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.[2][1]
