History[edit | edit source]
Belegund was the younger son and third child of Bregolas. His brother was Baragund who was elder to him, and his sister was Beleth who was the eldest among his siblings. Belegund had only one daughter, Rían, with an unnamed wife. Belegund and his brother Baragund partook in the Dagor Bragollach under the command of their uncle Barahir who was their father's brother. They survived, but were beaten back. 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. Belegund and the outlaws were killed. Only Beren survived, as he had been away on an errand. Belegund was the grandfather of Tuor by Rían his daughter.
