Revision as of 09:42, 22 June 2012 by Ederchil (Talk | contribs)

Ulfang the Black was an Easterling who came into Lothlann, Beleriand, in the year 463 of the First Age, shortly after Bór. He was the father of Ulfast, Ulwarth, and Uldor. Ulfang was welcomed by the Sons of Fëanor, and he and his sons swore allegiance to Caranthir. They were given lands to dwell in the north and south of the March of Maedhros.[1] Ulfang and his sons were secretly in the employ of Morgoth, and betrayed the Eldar and Edain during the Nirnaeth Arnoediad.[2]
