The Gondolin Lords Council is an assembly of the most prominent citizens of Gondolin, charged with representing the interests of the people to Turgon.

The council met roughly every month to discuss the governance of the city and any issues that had arisen since the last time. Turgon called meetings very early in the morning - perhaps so the lords would be too sleepy to provide a coherent opposition and so he could rule as an autocrat. However, when Gondolin became a democracy/regency, Tindariel continued to consult with the Lords' Council but maintained a power of veto.
