Gondolin Burning, by Ellethskie

The Fall of Gondolin was the final destruction of Turgon's hidden city by the forces of evil.

In CanonEdit

In the Silmarillion, Gondolin fell in FA 510, seven years after its location was betrayed to Morgoth by Maeglin. As the attack came on the night of Tarnin Austra, many citizens were caught at unawares and died in the attack. Some, under the leadership of Idril and Tuor, escaped by the mountain passes and went to live at the Havens of Sirion.
