Burning ships

Fëanor burns the ships at Losgar.

Losgar was a region located at the mouth of the Firth of Drengist in Middle-earth.[1]


Losgar was the place that Fëanor and his followers landed and where he ordered the burning the Swanships that he stole from the Teleri of Alqualondë. Fingolfin observed this from Araman in Aman and realized that he had been betrayed thus forcing him and his followers to undergo a long and hard trek across the Helcaraxë to Middle-earth.[2]


Losgar is a Sindarin word.[3]
