The Glorious Battle.
The third great battle in the Wars of Beleriand, called 'the Glorious Battle'. In about the seventy-fifth year of the First Age, Morgoth sent his Orcs to ravage Beleriand; they poured through the Pass of Sirion and Maglor's Gap, but were beaten back and utterly destroyed by the armies of Fingolfin and Maedhros.
