A Prince of Nargothrond, son of Guilin, whose rage at the mistreatment of his brother Gelmir started the first assault of the Noldor and Edain at the Nirnaeth Arnoediad. He was captured in that battle, but later escaped and led Túrin Turambar to Nargothrond.
According to The Etymologies (in volume 5 of The History of Middle-earth) the word gwind means 'pale blue'. This seems too close to Gwindor's name to be coincidence, but its significance - if indeed it has any - is not explained.
