Húrin and Morwen together had three children, though their daughter Lalaith died when she was still very young. In the Nirnaeth Arnoediad, Morgoth captured Húrin, and set a terrible curse on his surviving children, his son Túrin and daughter Niënor. The story of the working of this curse is a long and tragic one, involving the Sack of Nargothrond, the slaying of Glaurung, and ultimately the deaths of both Túrin and Niënor. It is told in the Narn i Chîn Húrin, the 'Tale of the Children of Húrin'.
