365 Days of Middle-earth ~ Day 259: Mablung

Mablung (S. ‘Heavy hand’) was a Sindarin Elf of Doriath and the chief captain of Thingol. Known as Mablung of the Heavy Hand, he participated in the Hunting of the Wolf (Carcharoth) and was granted permission to join the Union of Maedhros, which subsequently led him to participate in the Nirnaeth Arnoediad. The last living being to speak with Túrin Turambar, Mablung died defending the Nauglamír from the Dwarves during the sack of Menegroth after King Thingol had already been slain.
