Golasgil was the lord of Anfalas during the War of the Ring.

[edit] History

Golasgil led a long line of men to Minas Tirith before the Battle of Pelennor Fields. All that he commanded - hunters, herdsmen, and villagers - were scantily equipped save for his own household.[1] However, since he was not mentioned among the fallen in the Song of the Mounds of Mundburg it appears that he did survive the great battle.[2]

[edit] Portrayal in adaptations

2007: The Lord of the Rings Online:

Golasgil is found on the second level of Minas Tirith, overlooking the training of his soldiers. He participates in the defence of the city during the siege and later fights in the Battle of Pelennor Fields. During the battle he is separated from his allies, but is able to fend off a party of orcs and eventually survives the battle. He joins the Army of the West and follows Aragorn's command to the Black Gate of Mordor. During the Battle of the Morannon he is killed by a large Olog-hai.
