Noldolantë

From Tolkien Gateway
Noldolante by Jenny Dolfen

The Noldolantë, meaning "The Fall of the Noldor", was a lament composed by Maglor, a famed minstrel and the second son of Fëanor. The song told of events Maglor himself took part: Fëanor's rebellion against the Valar, the Kinslaying at Alqualondë, in which Fëanor led the first ever slaying of Elves by Elves, and the Exile of the Noldor in Middle-earth.[1][2]

Other versions of the legendarium[edit]

The Quenta Noldorinwa mentions "the song of the Flight of the Gnomes",[3] which Christopher Tolkien links with the abandoned poem "The Flight of the Noldoli from Valinor", wondering if his father had still intentions of continuing it or write another version.[4]
