In the Third Age of Middle-earth, the old and powerful Wizard Gandalf and his Company of Dwarves came upon a troll lair. There they found two ancient Elven swords and a knife. The exact history of these blades is not certain, but when the Elf lord Elrond examined them in Rivendell he determined they were well-known and ancient blades used in the Goblin Wars to slay many Orcs in the First Age. The sword named Glamdring was forged by the high Elves of the West, in the hidden city of Gondolin. Glamdring survived, only to be found thousands of years later by Gandalf and his companions.
Glamdring is an exquisite example of the height of Elven swordcraft, and a weapon befitting an Elven king. Gandalf claimed Glamdring for his own and wielded the sword through the Quest for Erebor, using it against the Goblins of the Misty Mountains, and later on the quest to destroy the One Ring. The great sword remained at Gandalfs side until the end of his days in Middle-earth.
