Founder of Gondolin. Turgon was born in the Years of the Trees to Fingolfin and Anairë. He had a brother Fingon and two younger sisters: Findis and Irimë. He travelled over the Grinding Ice into Middle-Earth, where he lost his wife Elenwe, has a daughter named Idril, and founded Gondolin, which kept Elves safe from the terror of Morgoth for centuries. However, because of its secrecy, nobody could leave Gondolin once they entered under pain of death. Turgon sent Elves to fight in the Battle of Sudden Flame and the Battle of Unnumbered Tears. Turgon died in the Fall of Gondolin.
