King-helm of Turgon

The royal emblem of Gondolin

The great helm of King Turgon of Gondolin, worn by him as a royal crown, and hence also known as the Crown of the Hidden Kingdom. Above the centre of the Seventh Gate of the Orfalch Echor, the Gate of Steel, a huge image of the King-helm was set, surrounded by diamonds.
