This article is about the son of Guilin. For the companion of Arminas, see Gelmir (messenger of Círdan).

Gelmir, son of Guilin, was a noble of Nargothrond and was captured by Morgoth in the Dagor Bragollach ("Battle of Sudden Flame"). It was his maiming before the elven host at the fortress of Barad Eithel that began the great battle of the Nirnaeth Arnoediad ("Battle of Unnumbered Tears").[1]
