In the fiction of J. R. R. Tolkien, Maeglin (Y.S. 320 – 510) was an Elf, the son of Eöl the Dark Elf and Aredhel daughter of Fingolfin.

Aredhel had left Gondolin to wander through Beleriand, and in the woods of Nan Elmoth she was lured by Eöl, and stayed with him, eventually giving birth to Maeglin. At birth, Aredhel gave Maeglin the name of Lómion, signifying "Child of the Twilight" in the Quenya tongue. Eöl gave his child the name Maeglin when he was twelve. Aredhel left Eöl, and took her son (who stole his father's sword, Anguirel, forged of meteoric iron) with her, returning to Gondolin. Eöl followed her, and in judgement before Turgon, the king of Gondolin, he attempted to kill Maeglin with a poisoned javelin, but hit Aredhel instead. She died, and Eöl was cast down to his death from the city walls. The Silmarillion is a collection of J. R. R.

Turgon has Eöl thrown to his death from the Walls of Gondolin. Maeglin shows no sorrow at the execution of his father. by Ted Nasmith

Maeglin was now an orphan, but Turgon held him in honour, and Maeglin both learned and taught much. He became an elven-prince held in high esteem, even leading his own House of the Mole. He found rich lodes of metals in the Echoriath surrounding the city, and forged weapons of steel stronger than had been seen before. His mine in the Echoriath was named Anghabar, Iron-Mine. In the Nirnaeth Arnoediad, Maeglin refused to remain behind as regent, and went forth to battle with Turgon. The seventh and final gate of Gondolin, the Great Gate of Steel, was Maeglin's creation.

Even though he was one of the mighty of Gondolin, he most desired Turgon's daughter (and Maeglin's first cousin) Idril. But there was no hope for him, for "the Eldar wedded not with kin so near". And, knowing his thought of her, Idril despised Maeglin. In the works of J. R. R.

When Tuor came, carrying Ulmo's warning of the danger to Gondolin, Maeglin sat on the right hand of Turgon and argued against Tuor. Tuor's marriage with Idril further incensed Maeglin, who rebelled against Turgon and Tuor. Later, seeking after metals, Maeglin defied Turgon's order to stay within the mountains, and was captured by Orcs and brought to Angband. Morgoth promised both Gondolin and Idril in return for the location of the hidden city, thus luring Maeglin into the greatest treachery done in the Elder Days. Maeglin returned to Gondolin saying nothing; when the hosts of Morgoth attacked and overran the city, Maeglin fought with Tuor on the walls, and Tuor threw him to his death.

.:.Insanity Said Coldly.:. (10124 words)
Maeglin’s raven-hued hair was tied back into a long braid that swung at his hips, and his raiment was of fl leather, and with him he bore always the long fl sword Anguirel, forged of galvorn, which he stole from his father.
Maeglin guessed that they neared their destination, and a seedling of dread was sown in his heart, for the tales told by the Naugrim of Orcs and their like, and the place they took their dwelling, were no children’s stories.
Maeglin’s head dropped to the side, resting tiredly upon an upstretching arm still fettered to the strong iron chains that held him upright, and his eyes closed for the respite, relief a small consolation in face of the myriad suffering thinly laid wounds upon his back that caused him such anguish.
