Fall of Gondolin

   The ruin of the last stronghold of the Eldar in Beleriand.
   The destruction of Gondolin by the forces of Morgoth, brought about by the treachery of Maeglin. Many were lost in the city's fall, not least King Turgon himself, but many also escaped by a secret way, among them Tuor and Idril and their young son Eärendil.
