ANCALAGON, ANCALAGON THE BLACK
Dragon of Angband. Ancalagon was the finest of the Winged Dragons. Called Ancalagon the Black, he was bred in the Pits of Angband by Morgoth in the First Age. For a time it looked as though he would overcome the Valar, but at a critical time the giant Eagles and Earendil the Mariner entered the fray and slew him. So great was his weight, that when he fell upon the towers of Thangorodrim, they were destroyed and the Pits of Angband burst beneath him.
