Revision as of 21:29, 20 October 2005 by Hyarion (Talk | contribs)

Menegroth, the 'Thousand Caves', was the city in the land of Doriath which was home to king Thingol and queen Melian of the Sindarin people. It was there that Thingol was slain by the Dwarven craftsmen of Nogrod. It was later sacked by the sons of Fëanor in pursuit of the one of the Silmarils to have left Morgoth's iron crown prior to the War of Wrath.
