'''Elemmakil''' was a [[Noldor|Noldorin Elf]], the captain of those who guarded the outer entranceway to [[Gondolin]]. The secret path to that great city led through a cavern in the wall of a [[Dry River]] to the [[Gate of Wood]], the first of the [[Seven Gates of Gondolin]]. It was this gate that Elemmakil and his men guarded, and it was here that he encountered [[Tuor]] and [[Voronwë of Gondolin|Voronwë]], journeying to [[Gondolin]] at the command of [[Ulmo]]. Elemmakil was their guide through the Seven Gates that guarded the [[Orfalch Echor]], until he gave them into the keeping of his own captain, the Warden of the Great Gate, [[Ecthelion of the Fountain]].
