Fingolfin

Tribute of Fingolfin, High King of the Ñoldor, King of Hithlum.
"In that vast shadow once of yore
Fingolfin stood: his shield he bore
with field of heaven’s blue and star
of crystal shining pale afar.
In overmastering wrath and hate
desperate he smote upon that gate,
the Gnomish king, there standing lone,
while endless fortresses of stone
engulfed the thin clear ringing keen
of silver horn and baldric green."
― Lay of Leithian, Canto XII, vv. 3538-3547
