The great battle between the Valar and Melkor that took place soon after the awakening of the Elves. At the clash of these two mighty forces, hat part of Middle Earth was greatly broken, and the landscape changed. Despite this, the forces of Valinor quickly triumphed in this first battle. Melkor was driven from Middle Earth back to his fortress of Utumno, and a guard placed over Cuiviénen to protect the newly-awakened Firstborn from his evil influence.
