Naugladur was the king of the Dwarves of Nogrod in The Book of Lost Tales.

History

He led the attack against Menegroth to capture the Nauglafring. Later he fought with Beren in the Battle of Sarn Athrad and would have slain him, but stumbled and Beren slew him to reclaim the Nauglafring. With his dying words he cursed the treasure that he was bringing back to Nogrod, which Beren dumped in the river.[3]

Etymology

The name Naugladur was never explained by Tolkien, but it is likely a Goldogrin name meaning "King [of the] Dwarves".[4]
