The Balrogs of Morgoth, by Thylacinee. By then, the Balrogs remained in the pits of Angband. After Morgoth destroyed the Trees with Ungolianthe came to the ruins of Angband to renew his rule in Middle-earth.
A disagreement with Ungoliant led to her attacking him, and Morgoth gave out a great cry that roused the Balrogs from their slumber. In a tempest of fire, the Balrogs drove Ungoliant away and prepared to pursue her.
However, they were halted by Morgoth and returned to Angband, which shortly thereafter was constructed anew. He came even within sight of Angband, but was ambushed by a force of Balrogs with few Noldor around him.
Soon he stood alone, but long he fought on with all Balrogs alone as mightiest all the Children of Iluvatar even Glorfindel - Balrog (7) - Ancalagon The Black (File) he was wrapped in fire and wounded with many wounds. The entire company was slain, except for Maedhros, who was later brought to Angband, Glorfindel - Balrog (7) - Ancalagon The Black (File).
Years later, during the Dagor Bragollachthe Balrogs, along with Glaurung and an army of Orcswere issued forth from Angband to assault the fortresses of the Elves and to kill their allies, the Edain. He bound the human warrior and delivered him to Angband, whereupon Morgoth attempted unsuccessfully to pry the location of Gondolin from him.
Glorfindel and the Balrog, by John Howe. In FAduring the Fall of Gondolinthe Balrogs rode upon the backs of dragons to reach the hidden city Glorfindel - Balrog (7) - Ancalagon The Black (File) Gondolin. The Lord of the House of the Fountain, Ecthelionmanaged to kill Gothmog at the cost of his own life.
While attempting to escape the burning city, Glorfindel and his companions were blocked by another Balrog. I am wondering if Glorfindel 's soul was tossed into the body of the unborn elf, then he had to grow up with lots of frustrations.
Glorfindel - Balrog (7) - Ancalagon The Black (File) Glorfindel! You can't tell me what to do! Could you hand me that thing on the top shelf really quick? I don't know how reincarnation works. I would like to, since I have a cool idea for another elf type character. Elthir Active Member. Joined Nov 28, Messages 1, Reaction score Points Tolkien seems to find a number of reasons why Glorfindel was reincarnated being under the ban was problematic.
He didn't list them like this, but here goes: 1 Glorfindel was an Elda of high and noble spirit I'm going to assume exceptionally high and noble is meant 2 he incurred the ban reluctantly only because of kinship and allegiance to Turgon, and love for his Kindred. So Glorfindel was purged of any guilt in note 12 Tolkien describes that his guilt had been small, and once again refers to his noble character, among other thingsreleased from Mandos, and Manwe restored him to bodily life -- and he gained the primitive innocence and grace of the Eldar.
It is then said he became a friend and follower of Gandalf! Glorfindel remained in the Blessed Realm, but his ultimate return it is said must have been for the purpose of strengthening Gil-galad and Elrondin SA it appears.
YayGollumbasically for a very long time JRRT held that an Elf could be reincarnated by being reborn as a child, but he ultimately rejected this. Tolkien turned to the idea of the Valar restoring the body, and noted that the former idea must be abandoned or at least noted as a false notion. That looks like enough explanation. No information on how things would have worked in the reincarnation scenario, though? That crazy Tolkien guy changed his mind on all kinds of things, and I have no problem with working with whichever idea is more convenient, or just making something up, if required.
YayGollum said:. Last edited: Oct 23, Bucky Active Member. Some of the differences I can think of are: Glorfindel 's body was preserved and he had Vanyarin blood. Where'd those things come from? Never heard either Well the Vanyarin association likely comes from Glorfindel 's golden hair. Technically Tolkien reveals that he was a Noldo with 'kinship' to Turgon whose wife was Elenwe of course but doesn't go into detail on the nature of this kinship.
Since Tolkien writes Before the late essays on Glorfindel were published Robert Foster Guide to Middle-earth had conjectured that Glorfindel was possibly of the House of Finarfin, due to his hair. Alcuin Active Member. A few ideas: When did Glorfindel return to Middle-earth? There is some textual evidence, I think I recall — Galin may be able to put his finger upon it faster than I — that Glorfindel returned during the Second Agenot the Third, when the Istari appeared.
This might be argued to have no bearing on whether Glorfindel might have returned to Middle-earth rather than Ecthelion; but I think Glorfindel - Balrog (7) - Ancalagon The Black (File) does. The simple fact is that Ecthelion might well have had enough of Middle-earth; Glorfindel clearly had not. Perhaps the whole issue simply revolves about the fact Glorfindel - Balrog (7) - Ancalagon The Black (File) Tolkien re-used the name Glorfindel while writing LotR. Should we not assume that Ecthelion suffered a stay in Mandos, was released, and returned to Eldamar to be with his family and friends, as did apparently many other of the Noldor who went to Middle-earth?

I think it's fair to say that, as in many unpublished matters, it was hardly selttled in Tolkien's mind whether Glorfindel returned in the Second or Third Age Each version presents it's own difficulties in trying to fit into 'know history'.

Nov 30, · In the LOTR, Gandalf fights the Balrog, but he dies doing so. Gandalf is one of the Mair, which would be some of the more powerful beings of middle earth, but nontheless, he was killed in defeating the Balrog. But in the Sil. It talks of Glorfindel fighting several Balrogs, and killing them, even though he also died. Ancalagon the Black was probably the greatest dragon to ever live, as well as the one in whom "the old fire" was the strongest. However, it is said that even Ancalagon's fire was not hot enough to destroy the One Ring. Glorfindel’s only important in the background (where, to be fair, he is extraordinarily badass - got a mutual kill with a Balrog to cover the escape of the survivors of Gondolin, including Tuor and Idril and their seven year old son, Earendil, helped drive off the Witch-King of Angmar after the fall of Angmar, and made the prophecy about how the Witch-King would die), and Arwen’s qualified to fill the gap.
Balrogs are only found deep in the depths in the Third Age because the remaining few had gone into hiding after the fall of Melkor, the First Dark Lord, Sauron's master. This balrog was as ancient as his 6 brothers, although the idea of 7 was changed from having hundreds of Balrogs, however less powerful to the strength of the final 7.
This is a tale told to little elflings and Glorfindel probably disapproves but. *Also a little bit of Sindarin is used but I’m sure context will make it obvious* I wrote this in January and put it on tumblr and it's high time it get crossposted here.

Balrogs were Melkor's go to monster in the earlier wars, but near the end it was all about the Dragons (lol at the guy earlier who said it wasn't cool to use Ancalagon the Black to 'scale' down to.

Though Glaurung was named Father of Dragons, Ancalagon, also known as Ancalagon the Black, was one of the most powerful and infamous of all the dragons bred by Morgoth during the first First Age and possibly the largest dragon to have ever lived. And his fire was thus far hotter than most other dragons. Ancalagon's size is not specified, but may be gigantic due to the destruction of "the.
May 24, · And Ancalagon and the other flying dragons had the power to throw back the armies from Valinor commanded by Eonwe. That shows that dragons were serious business. The body of a Balrog (or any other Ainu aside from, perhaps, the shapes of the Valar) could easily enough be devoured by a dragon or consumed by its flames.
