|−|When [[Túrin]] was led to [[Nargothrond]] by [[Gwindor]], he wished to conceal his identity and so escape the curse of [[Morgoth]] on his kin, if he could. So, he took a new name, [[Agarwaen]] son of [[Úmarth ]], from the [[Sindarin]] words for ' blood-stained' and 'ill-fate '. |+|
|−|His identity did not remain hidden for long. Gwindor revealed to [[ Finduilas]] that ' Agarwaen' was in fact Túrin, and ' Úmarth' his famous father [[ Húrin]]. When news of this reached Finduilas' father King [[ Orodreth]] , Túrin was given great honour and standing, but the revelation of Túrin' s identity would also bring home Morgoth' s curse. Using his new authority, Túrin caused the [[ Elves of Nargothrond]] to abandon their policy of secrecy, and instead go into open battle - a decision that would eventually lead to their destruction. |+|
