The Valar concentrated this light in two large lamps, called Illuin and Ormal. Illuin was set upon Helcar and Ormal upon Ringil.
In the middle, where the light of the lamps mingled, the Valar dwelt at the island of Almaren upon the Great Lake. This period, known as the Spring of Arda, was a time when the Valar had ordered the World as they wished and rested upon Almaren, and Melkor lurked beyond the Walls of Night.
During this time animals first appeared, and forests started to grow. The Spring of Arda was interrupted when Melkor returned to Arda, and ended completely when he assaulted and destroyed the Lamps of the Valar.
Arda was again darkened, and the fall of the great Lamps spoiled the symmetry of Arda's surface. New continents were created: Aman in the West, Middle-earth proper in the middle, the uninhabited lands later called the Land of the Sun in the East.
At the site of the southern lamp was later the Sea of Ringil. Shortly after the destruction of the Two Lamps and the kingdom of Almaren , the Valar abandoned Middle-earth , moving to the continent of Aman.
There they built their Second Kingdom, Valinor. Yavanna made the Two Trees , named Telperion the silver tree and Laurelin the golden tree in the land of Valinor.
The Trees illuminated Valinor, leaving Middle-earth in darkness lit only by stars. The Years of the Trees were divided into two epochs.
The first ten Ages, the Years of Bliss, saw peace and prosperity in Valinor. This was the first time after the Spring of Arda that Middle-earth was illuminated.
Learning of this, the Valar and the Maiar came into Middle-earth and, in the War of the Powers also called the Battle of the Powers , defeated Melkor and brought him captive to Valinor.
This began the period of the Peace of Arda. Along the journey several groups of Elves tarried, notably the Nandor and the Sindar.
The three clans that arrived at Aman were the Vanyar , Noldor and the Teleri. They made their home in Eldamar. The world was again dark, save for the faint starlight.
The first Kinslaying thus ensued, and a curse was put on the house of the Noldor forever. Meanwhile, the Valar took the last living fruit of Laurelin and the last living flower of Telperion and used them to create the Moon and Sun, which remained a part of Arda, but were separate from Ambar the world.
The first rising of the sun over Ambar heralded the end of the Years of the Trees, and the start of the Years of the Sun, which last to the present day.
The Years of the Sun were the last of the three great time-periods of Arda. They began with the first sunrise in conjunction with the return of the Noldor to Middle-earth , and last until the present day.
Tolkien estimated that modern times would correspond to the sixth or seventh age. These variations had earlier starting points, extending the First Age back to the creation of Arda , but consistently ended with Morgoth 's defeat in Beleriand.
This Peace lasted hundreds of years, during which time Men arrived over the Blue Mountains. At the end of the age, all that remained of free Elves and Men in Beleriand was a settlement at the mouth of the River Sirion and another on the Isle of Balar.
They responded, sending forth a great host. In the War of Wrath, Melkor was utterly defeated. He was expelled into the Void and most of his works were destroyed.
This came at a terrible cost, however, as most of Beleriand itself was sunk. In a letter, Tolkien wrote that "This legendarium [of the First Age, The Silmarillion ] ends with a vision of the end of the world, its breaking and remaking, and the recovery of the Silmarilli and the 'light before the Sun' — after a final battle [The War of Wrath] which owes, I suppose, more to the Norse vision of Ragnarök than to anything else, though it is not much like it.
The years of the Second Age are mostly unchronicled; there are hints in The Lord of the Rings , and shorter writings fill in some gaps. At first, they honored the Ban of the Valar, never sailing into the Undying Lands.
He provided a great help to the company. He gave them rest, food and guidance. It is lucky for Gandalf to have known him via Radagast, the Brown Wizard.
In this chapter, another important character in the mythology was introduced. The Necromancer, aka Sauron. Sauron is a former Maia of Aule. Melkor Morgoth was able to lure him to his side, becoming is lieutenant.
Finrod Felagund had a magical fight with him one on one. I'm planning to read again the books in the order of publication. The first time I read them in chronological order.
In that order the story became somewhat historical. I want to see the story in a different point of view this time. From clandestine gates around Angband, thousands of Orcs erupted suddenly, repulsing the host of Fingon from the walls.
The Elven army was driven back in great slaughter, and many Haladin fell fighting in the rearguard including their lord Haldir.
Turgon , who had withheld his host from the reckless charge, now came upon the Orc host. The phalanx of Turgon broke through the Angband lines, and met with the guard of Fingon.
Finally, Maedhros arrived, but before he could make junction with Fingon and Turgon, Morgoth unleashed his last strength and all of Angband was emptied; wolves, wolfriders, Balrogs, dragons and with them Glaurung.
Union forces could yet have prevailed, but Uldor turned ranks and attacked Maedhros in the rear, while more of his kin came down from the mountains and attacked from the east.
Many beasts retreated with him. In a solemn ceremony, the Dwarves picked up their fallen leader, abandoning the battle, and marched him home in a great procession.
Their wrath was so great that none troubled them. All this had not helped the western host, who were attacked by many Orcs under Gothmog. Gothmog cut a path to Fingon and fought him in single combat.
Fingon was hewed by his black axe and his body beaten with maces. Huor then said to the king that from his house the hope of Elves and Men will come and 'from me and you a new star shall arise.
Acting as a rearguard, these Men were almost all slain — Huor fell when his eye was pierced by a poisoned arrow. Morgoth had ordered him to be taken alive, however; he killed no fewer than seventy Orcs [note 6] and Trolls before he became pinned under their corpses, and was later taken prisoner by Gothmog.
The Orcs gathered all of the slain Elves and Men and piled them in a mound in the midst of the desolate landscape and it was so great it could be seen from afar, and the Elves named it Haudh-en-Nirnaeth , Hill of Tears or Haudh-en-Ndengin, Hill of the Slain.
Grass grew on that hill long after the battle but nowhere else in Anfauglith and no servant of Morgoth would go near it.
Morgoth now had complete dominance in the north and his servants pressed southwards whenever. Morgoth sent the Easterlings that served him into Hithlum and shut them in and denied to them the fertile lands of Beleriand.
Maedhros' plan was for his main host to attack and draw out the army of Angband and engage their front, after which Fingon 's host would attack from the Ered Wethrin in the west, striking the forces of Angband on the flank.
Other potential allies of great strength would not join the Union because of the evil deeds of Celegorm and Curufin , two of Maedhros' brothers.
Nargothrond would send only a small company of elves under Gwindor because of their part in the death of Finrod Felagund , King of Nargothrond.
Only Mablung and Beleg , two of Thingol's great captains, who did not wish to remain behind, came and joined the western army. On the other hand, Turgon unexpectedly appeared with an army of ten thousand Elves from Gondolin.
Maedhros had mustered the largest force of Elves and allies ever, but his failures in statesmanship and diplomacy, along with the ill deeds of his brothers, alienated one of the largest Elven force in Beleriand, King Thingol's army of Doriath, some 30,—45, strong.
None doubted that Morgoth had not been idle, and when every sword would be needed the loss of potentially 45, to 65, more warriors would prove crippling to Maedhros' plan.
Morgoth had learned of the battle plan through his spies and his agent Uldor son of Ulfang, who proved to be a traitor, delaying Maedhros with false information and preventing the lighting of the signal beacon on Dorthonion.
To further disrupt the coordination of Maedhros' plan a large detachment of Orcs was sent west from Angband with orders to provoke Fingon's host in the west into a premature attack.
When Fingon's host stayed in position, the Captains of the Orc-host brought a prisoner, Gelmir , the brother of Gwindor, and he was mutilated and beheaded in sight of the Elves.
Tragically, though Fingon's army was concealed in the Shadowy Mountains over a very long front, the Orc captain killed Gelmir in front of Gwindor's position.
Enraged, Gwindor and his company of Elves from Nargothrond broke ranks and charged, killing the heralds and driving into the bulk of the Angband army, and Fingon promptly ordered his entire army to charge.
The Army of Hithlum in this first encounter nearly managed to disrupt Morgoth's plans by destroying his western army on the plains of Anfauglith.
Gwindor and his small company led the charge all the way from Eithel Sirion to Angband, to the extent of breaking through the front gates and killing the guards on the stairs; it is said that Morgoth trembled as Gwindor's company pounded on his doors.
Once inside, though, they were surrounded and killed, except Gwindor, who was captured and imprisoned. Fingon and the main Army of Hithlum could not come to their rescue, as Morgoth had by this time ordered his main army, many thousands strong, to emerge from a large number of hidden entrances in Thangorodrim.
Fingon suffered great losses as his army was beaten back from the walls of Thangorodrim, and soon ordered a general retreat back towards Hithlum.
Many Men of Brethil fell in the rearguard during the retreat, including their Chieftain Haldir. For two days and the intervening night, Fingon's army continued its retreat, until on the second night they were surrounded on the plains of Anfauglith, and they fought desperately through the night.
Turgon had restrained the Army of Gondolin from joining in the first attack, and was able to come to his brother's assistance. Attacking the Orc army from the south, the phalanx of Turgon's guard broke through the Angband lines, and Turgon's army linked up with Fingon's.
Finally, Maedhros and the Eastern Army joined the battle, causing many Orcs to flee in terror. But before he could cut through to Fingon and Turgon, the last reserves of Angband under Glaurung the Dragon attacked, preventing the two armies from joining.
However, Uldor and a large contingent of Easterlings turned traitor and attacked the Eastern Army from within, nearly approaching Maedhros' banner before they were cut down.
But further forces of Easterlings, summoned by Uldor, joined the battle against Maedhros, and the Eastern Army, attacked from three sides, broke and fled in disorder.
The Dwarves of Belegost helped them escape, as their forces formed a sort of rearguard, holding off Glaurung. Glaurung was vulnerable to the Dwarves' axes, while the Dwarves themselves wore fire-resistant iron masks and were naturally able to resist fire better than Elves or Men.
In solemn ceremony the Dwarves picked up their fallen leader, and, leaving the battle, they marched his corpse home singing a funeral dirge; no-one attempted to stop them.
