Eärendil slays Ancaglon

Eärendil battles Ancalagon in Vingilot.

Vingilot (Quenya; IPA: [ˈviŋɡilot]), or Vingilótë or Wingilótë [wiŋɡiˈloːte]), was the ship in which Eärendil and Elwing sailed to Aman in order to seek pardon and assistance from the Valar.

HistoryEdit

Guided by the light of a Silmaril, Eärendil navigated Vingilot through the Shadowy Seas to the Blessed Realm of Aman; he was the first Mortal to do so. He was not allowed, however, to return to Middle-earth, except to join the host of the Valar in the final War of Wrath against Morgoth. With Vingilot, Eärendil slew Ancalagon the Black, the greatest dragon that ever lived.

After the War of Wrath, Eärendil, with the Silmaril upon his brow, sailed Vingilot into the sky where the jewel shines forever as a morning star (the equivalent to Venus).

The ship was referred to as Wingilótë during much of the First Age, but most instances of Quenya W became V after the First Age ended, yielding Vingilótë. The name was finally abbreviated to Vingilot.

EtymologyEdit

Vingilot was a Quenya word for "Foam-flower".
