Great Shadow

A title of Morgoth

A rare title used of the power of Morgoth during the First Age. It is used only once, in the words of Tar-Meneldur of Númenor recalling the aid his ancestors the Edain had given in the Wars of Beleriand against the Great Shadow of the North. It may therefore be a term confined to the Númenóreans, or a translation of an Adûnaic name for Morgoth that is not otherwise recorded.
