Quest for the Silmaril

Quest for the Silmaril was the quest of Beren Erchamion for a Silmaril from Morgoth's Iron Crown, as Thingol's bride-price for his daughter Lúthien. He was aided in the Quest by Lúthien herself, King Finrod of Nargothrond and Huan the Hound of Valinor. It was immortalized in the elvish poetic epic, the Lay of Leithian.
