Baragund (F.A. 420-460) was a descendant of Bëor, and a member of Barahir's Outlaw Band.

History

Baragund was the son of Bregolas. He had only one daughter, Morwen, with an unnamed wife.[1] Baragund and his brother Belegund partook in the Dagor Bragollach under the command of their uncle Barahir. They survived, but were beaten back.[2] With Barahir and ten others, they formed a small band and lived as outlaws in Dorthonion, near Tarn Aeluin.

They lived in hiding for some time, until Morgoth's agents captured Gorlim and coerced him into giving the location of their hideaway. Orcs were sent to raid it, and succeeded. Baragund and the outlaws were killed. Only Beren survived, as he had been away on an errand.[3]

Etymology

The full meaning of Baragund is unknown. The first element is said to consist of the Exilic Noldorin word bara ("fiery, eager").[4] The second element could perhaps be gund (cf. Felagund).
