Second Battle of BeleriandSecond Battle of Beleriand - Known as Dagor-nuin-Giliath or "Battle under the Stars".  It is the battle in which the Noldor prince, Fëanor died.


"...and there in the grey fields of Mithrim was fought the Second Battle in the Wars of Beleriand.  Dagor-nuin-Giliath it is named, the Battle-under-Stars, for the Moon had not yet risen; and it is renown in song.  The Noldor, outnumbered and taken at unawares, were yet swiftly victorious; for the light of Aman was not yet dimmed in their eyes, and they were strong and swift, and deadly in anger, and their swords were long and terrible.  The Orcs fled before them, and they were driven forth from Mithrim with great slaughter..." ~The Silmarillion, chap. 13 (Of the Return of the Noldor)
