"there are Tolkien's latest thoughts, his best thoughts, and his published thoughts and these are not necessarily the same." — Tolkien's Legendarium
This article is non-canon.

In the earliest versions of the legendarium, Gothmog is described as the son of Morgoth and the 'ogress' Fluithuin or Ulbandi.[1] Both 'ogresses' and the idea that the Valar had children were discarded by Tolkien fairly early on.
