Grond (Hammer of the Underworld)

Revision as of 21:59, 19 October 2012 by Mithbot (Talk | contribs)

Grond, called the Hammer of the Underworld, was Morgoth's mighty mace that he bore when he fought Fingolfin before the doors of Angband. Each time Grond struck the ground it created a pit from which smoke and fire erupted. However, Fingolfin evaded these strokes; he only fell when he grew weary and Morgoth was able to crush him under his shield.[1]
