A song or poem made by Maglor the great minstrel, the second son of Fëanor. Its name means 'The Fall of the Noldor', and in it Maglor tells the story of his father's rebellion against the Valar, in which Maglor himself took part, and the exile of the Noldor from Aman. It is particularly associated with the Kinslaying at Alqualondë, which saw Fëanor lead the first slaying of Elves by Elves in the history of that people.
