was a song or lament written by Maglor
, the second son of Fëanor
and a great minstrel. Its name means "The Fall of the Noldor", and in it Maglor tells the story of his father's rebellion against the Valar
, in which Maglor himself took part, and the exile of the Noldor from Aman
. It is particularly associated with the Kinslaying
, which saw Fëanor lead the first slaying of Elves
by Elves in the history of that people.
