Welcome to the The One Wiki to Rule Them All sandbox!
This page exists so that you can practice editing or formatting (see Help:Editing) without changing any serious content. Feel free to try wiki editing out here first.
There is a tutorial on the Central (coordinating) Wikia that will step you through more of the things you can do. Wiki allow for rather complicated formatting. It can look overwhelming when you begin, but don't let it worry you. Just start with the basics... enter some text, and learn the other pieces as you go. Your content contributions are welcome and important. The wiki is a collaborative effort and others can help with formatting and other improvements.

The Fall of Gondolin was the battle between the forces of Turgon and Melkor, after Maeglin betrayed the location of the Hidden Kingdom to the enemy.
In 551 FA, Turgon's nephew, Maeglin, divulged the secrets of Gondolin and its passes to Morgoth, who planned the assault for many years before finally unleashing his armies upon the unprepared Elves. Due to information passed by Maeglin, Morgoth's forces managed to surround the city without being detected, and it was besieged without any hope of victory or escape on the part of the Elves.
After the battle, most of the Gondolindrim (including Turgon and his captains) died, while some survived, such as Tuor, Idril, and their son Eärendil.
